This is an open invitation to all people in Macon County to meet members of the Academic Foundation Board on Thursday, Jan. 15, at 6 p.m. in the School Board Room at the school district county office (1202 Old Murphy Rd). We are especially interested in discussing our mission and accomplishments with members of the private business community upon whose support we rely every year to raise money for use in all public classrooms of Macon County.
The Macon County Academic Foundation is an all volunteer, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise and grant funds to teachers for classroom project materials and field trips. In 2014 alone, MCAF granted over $14,000 to programs that directly benefit our students, including the purchase of harps for a new music program at Mountain View Intermediate, clay pottery kits for East Franklin Elementary, and new P.E. equipment for Union Academy. The money raised at our yearly Academic Auction – set for May 2, 2015 at Cartoogechaye School – helps students across all grade levels in this way.
