Dear Family and Friends,

Years ago we envisioned bold and vibrant facilities for McLean School that would accommodate more students, enable signature programs, and convey the richness of McLean’s transformative education. With support from our community, that vision is coming to life. Today, we are excited to introduce/launch the Envision McLean Bricks Campaign. We invite you to join in this pivotal moment in McLean’s 65-year history by purchasing a brick for our walkway and helping to complete this journey.
The Bricks Campaign offers 4”x8” and 8”x8” walkway bricks inscribed with three or six lines of customized text of your choice. Bricks will be laid along the diagonal walkway leading up to the main entrance of the school, and will pave the way for generations to come. 
Whether you participated with a capital gift, a TRUE BLUE Fund contribution, or attended the Auction during the last three years, you have contributed to the success of Envision McLean. Thank you! The Bricks Campaign provides an additional way for everyone in the community to participate in the building project, and to commemorate that support. Every brick tells a unique story. We hope that you will take advantage of the chance to celebrate someone special, put your stamp on our facilities, and leave your legacy.
You may contact Margy Cummings-Whitmore at or 240.395.0692 with any questions.
