McAdoo Catholic Closing
McAdoo Catholic Elementary school will be closing it’s doors for good at the end of the year. Concerned parents called News 13 Monday to let us know that McAdoo Catholic sent a letter home with students saying that the school will not be opening for the 2013-2014 school year, due to lack of funding and low student enrollment. All this despite an enthusiastic community fund drive to try and raise the money needed that would guarantee the school’s future. That drive did raise over 100-thousand of the one hundred and thirty thousand dollars needed for the schools budget this year. However, that wasn’t enough. McAdoo Catholic is part of the Catholic diocese of Allentown. Around 15, teachers and faculty will lose their jobs because of the school’s closing. This year, 91 students are enrolled at the school.
