Fox School Praised by Auditor for Cleaning Up Finances

        This week I want to expand my note to parents outside the walls of Meramec. I wanted to pass along an article written in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch this past week. If you click the title at the top or this link  Article it compliments the Fox School District for recent work with its finances. The article discusses the progress the district and board of education has made in making sure the finances of the tax payers is handled properly. I pass this along because while there is a lot of great things going on at The Mac, there is also a ton of great things going on throughout our district. Our Superintendent Dr. Wipke is committed to making the Fox District the best place for students to learn. It’s important that our school and district continue to spread the news of the great work that is going on in our community. We are a community on the rise and the places we are going will directly benefit every child in our district. I am so proud of our district and the direction we are headed. Please take a moment over the weekend to read through the article so you can also enjoy some great news about the Fox District.

Have a Great Weekend!
