Brick walkway order form
In September 2004, a new brick walkway was built at Conard High School. The walkway leads to the Conard gymnasium and Robert J. McKee Stadium (renamed and dedicated in September 2003). Funds for this walkway were made possible through the sales of engraved bricks. Approximately 10,000 bricks were needed to complete this project, 700 of which are now engraved.
Sales of bricks will continue for years to come, until all the blank bricks have been replaced with personalized engraved bricks. Purchase your own engraved brick for the walkway, or buy one for a special student, teacher, coach, friend, or in memory of someone special.

An engraved brick is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a student, a graduate, a teacher, to honor a special occasion, display a favorite quote or just share a friendly thought while also supporting the Conard PTO. Engraved bricks for the walkway in front of the Conard gym make very unique gifts, which last a lifetime!
