Update on New Playground

        Want to provide an update on the purchase of a new playground for our school. I do want to first thank our Assistant Principal Dr. Schwalbe who has really spearheaded this project for our school. Dr. Schwalbe has worked incredibly hard on this project to ensure we get the best playground for our students. The Request for Proposal (RFP) has been submitted for the project through the Fox District. The RFP will run in the local Leader Publication next Thursday for viewing. This means we have submitted a specific playground design that we want companies to bid on. The playground design will be open for bid for a specific amount of time. Our hope is to work with central office to determine which company will be awarded the bid. Our hope is to have this ready for the Fox Board of Education to review at the first board meeting in April. From there we will be able to communicate a more specific time frame for installation of the project. This is a very exciting time for our students and community. The hard work of everyone in The Mac community over the years is coming to fruition. Thank you for your continued support!

Have a great weekend!
