Catholic school in Kingfield to close next year

Risen Christ Catholic school’s west campus, 3800 Pleasant Ave., will leave the Kingfield neighborhood location by Fall 2003, principal Helen Dahlman said.

The west campus houses third through eighth grades, and all operations will be moved to the east campus, 1120 E. 37th St., in the Powderhorn Park neighborhood. The east campus serves kindergarten through second grade.

Dahlman said it is too difficult to manage the school at two different locations. She said she has already hired a contractor for expansion of the Powderhorn location expansion.

Steve Jevning, Kingfield Neighborhood Association board president, said the neighborhood is waiting to see what is to be done with the school’s land, owned by the Incarnation Catholic Church Parish.

Dahlman said the parish will use the remainder of the school’s time at the location to determine what to do with the site.
