Fundraising for a Middle School
The "It's Time" committee held a golf tournament at Tanglewood Golf Course in Fulton to raise funds and awareness for Proposition Two, which would raise taxes by nine percent and place a middle school west of the existing high school.
Right now, North Callaway has three elementary schools which serve kindergarten through eighth grade. The area does not have a middle school. About 37 golfers participated in the event and they say the school district desperately needs a new middle school.
"Two of our three elementaries are busting at the seems and the other is just about there. So um we need the space but also it's a we're gonna be able to offer more classes to the junior high kids," Tim Borman, a golfer.
The proposition will be on the August ballot. In April, the proposition lost by 25 votes.
