Volunteers 'on track' at Franklin School - Appeal-Democrat

September 9, 2015
The students in the Franklin Elementary School District were welcomed back to the new school year with a surprise: A new track had been constructed and field improvements were completed during their summer vacation. As the students arrived on the first day of school, many had little knowledge of the changes that had taken place over the summer. The once vacant field now had a 15 -mile track, new broad jump pit, new baseball diamond, a play structure area and new playing fields.

Faced with the challenge of limited space, the school district has struggled for many years to provide its upper grade students with an adequate field area to meet the needs of recess time, physical education and athletic events. During the 2014-15 school year, the Board of Trustees secured the services of MHM Inc. to develop a "Master Plan" for the upper grade field area. Working closely with the staff, administration and Board of Trustees, MHM Inc. developed a comprehensive "Master Plan" that included a new track, broad jump pit, baseball diamonds, area for a new play structure and multiple playing fields. The board hired a construction coordinator, Douglas Reeder, with the goal to have this project completed by the start of the current school year.
