Spradling said the school’s last building project took place in 2008, but there weren’t enough funds to complete the building.
Several fundraising campaigns — including a gold and silver drive, and the May 10-11 Walk-a-Thon — are being held to raise the remaining funds for the building. The Walk-a-Thon flier says if every MCS student raises $143, the students would collect $30,000 for the building campaign. Every student who raised that amount would get a chance to soak a staff member in a dunking booth in the parking lot.
“That’s just one way we’re trying to raise the funds we need to finish this project,” Brandenburg said. “Dr. Gary Cobb is organizing funding efforts with several area businesses. He’s raising close to $350,000 through that endeavor. Anyone can donate through any one of these avenues of funding.”
Classrooms are expected to be completed in time for the Aug. 20 opening of the new school year.
