North Schuylkill Holds Open House of Former Cardinal Brennan Campus

On Saturday, September 5, 2015, the North Schuylkill School District held an open house of the former Cardinal Brennan Campus.  The district purchased the campus in January 2015.

The administration was on hand to talk to those that had toured the campus.  Hundreds of district residents and alumni spent the 2 hours exploring and reliving old memories of walking down the halls of the school.

The entire campus was open which allowed alumni to see parts of the building they weren't allowed to see as students.  Memories of the school were still visible as the chalkboards and white boards still displayed messages from students.

Superintendent Bob Ackell was on hand and told Skook News that district is still unsure what they will be doing with the campus.  A feasibility study will be done to estimate costs for renovations and to  determine their options.

The school's gymnasiums have been used as weight rooms and storage for their practicing falls sports teams.
