Saturday Update - 08Jan21

Good Saturday out there, South Nelson.

Some of our grades 4/5 students and staff tested out our new school set of snowshoes this past week and we are thrilled to have these available for classes to sign out!  Thank you to our PAC for funding this purchase and Valhalla Pure for making it easy to move forward with.  We have 30 sets for kids and 3 sets for adults.

Over the break we also had our upstairs bottle filler & water fountain installed by our SD8 Operations crew.  Thank you again to our PAC for funding this project and to the Operations team for getting this finished.
