Happy Spring! I hope that you had a lovely Easter, and you are enjoying the sunshine and warmer days.  The school board will be starting work on a second well for the school to help with our water pressure issues that we experience at times.  This work will take place on the north side of the building by the bus lane and will not affect buses or be a safety concern for students or staff.  We should also have a response soon from the Ministry if our application for the grant to improve the playground has been
approved.  Unfortunately up to this point, we have not been able to start any work on the playground due to many unforeseen issues, but we will be able to give you a full update on our plans very soon.  Teachers have been busy recently ordering math manipulatives and classroom book sets with the money fundraised this year, over $10,000!  Thanks again to PPO and parent volunteers for all of their hard work and time organizing these successful events for these much needed materials for students.  Lastly, we are launching a more user-friendly school website in the coming weeks.
