New play structure to be installed in spring

I’m sure that you’ve heard the expression, “It was too good of a deal to pass up.”

Well, that’s exactly what happened for us. For years, the School Board has been talking about replacing the wooden play structure, but they are very expensive. One of our board members, Grace Wallace, decided to make this her project. To make a long story short, we found a set-up that was shown at a trade show, and therefore was considered used. Because of that we got a 35 percent discount on a great set-up.

Then, Jason Olsen, another board member, wrote a grant request to the Grays Harbor Community Foundation for funds. We recently learned that we were awarded $10,000. In addition to that, we had another $2,000 donation. So, all that being said, we are planning to demolish the old structure on April 20 and erect the new one on April 27.

The entire school population is extremely excited about this, and is actively working on a fundraiser (selling pizza, etc.) to help offset some of the costs. Please help support us if you are able.

Several of our students have had perfect attendance this quarter. Those students were: Elias Lipski, Brook Winters, Levi Clements, Alexis Miranda, Elizabeth Birks, Baylie Lusher, Emily Newberry, Esther Wood and Nika Eschete.

That is a great family accomplishment. Congratulations!

During January, we had several students drawn for the “caught being good” award. Those students were: Hunter Quimby, Grace Koonrad, Canon Seaberg, Miley Seaberg, Colton Lowe, Alex Miranda, Kaylan Bossard, Daylan Eaton and Luke Clements. Way to Go! We are proud of each of you.
