For a long time now, St. John's students and teachers (especially kindergarten teacher, Mrs. O'Neil!) have wished for improvements to the school yard. The small kindergarten yard is practically bare and all water and dirt drains into that section of the yard, and the space for junior and intermediate students lacks quality playground and sports equipment.
Tonight, a sub-committee of the School Council (Parent Council) was created to bring together the community to give the current school yard a face-lift! A small group of moms volunteered to help, and the first priorities are to create a plan and submit applications for funding. Wish us luck!
