April 14-20

It’s finally spring so we thought we’d do some “spring cleaning” and let you know about some of the things that have been happening around the school.  

In the fall, due to safety issues, we had to take down 2 of the basketball hoops as we they were coming undone from the pole and we were concerned they could fall down on top of students.  Now that the snow is gone, the hoops were reinstalled this past week! Facilities did a fantastic job and they have already been put to good use by the students!

We also did a bit of patching to the walkway just outside the front door where there were large gaps which could be a tripping hazard.  Students were quite concerned that something had “happened” due to the caution tape but we just didn’t want people to walk through the wet cement.

Sadly, one of our Mayday trees out front has advanced black rot and it cannot be saved so facilities will be taking it down on April 23.  

Over spring break, our gym lights were brought into the 21st century and the light boxes were replaced with ones that will actually come on as soon as you turn them on!  They are much brighter, use less electricity and we don’t need to wait for them to warm up.

Working with you,
Mme Sauder & Mme Garneau
