Last year the State Fire Marshal visited and that led to updating the building to increase safety for our students. The fire alarm was completely replaced last spring and later this month two fire doors will be installed in the main hallway.
A play set suitable for our pre-school and kindergarten age students has been designed and will be arriving the week of November 16. The plan is to install it November 21 (weather permitting). Help is needed to get this done. Contact Mrs. Garvey if you can help.
A third project is the building of a gaga pit. This will be used to play gaga ball which is similar to dodge ball, but it is a bit more “contained.” This was funded by a SHIP grant and other donations. It is being built by the high school building/trades class under the guidance of Mr. Matt Buysse.
Thank you to all Veterans for their service! Due to COVID restrictions, Veterans Day here at St. Edward School looked a bit different. Chassidy DeRoode, Dean Slatko, Ed Lozinski, Tony Buysse, Joe Garvey, and Mark Gruenes visited individual classrooms to share with our students. It was an honor to have these service members in our building!While they were here, members of the local VFW were able to congratulate the following students for placing in the Patriots Pen Contest: MadisonHennen-1st, Sarah Gruenes-2nd, Kate Badgett-3rd.
