Spring Break is still a few weeks away, but if you’re looking for something for the kids to do over the break, Shelley Painter will be running some March Break Art Classes!  Running Monday to Friday, March 12 to March 16 and then again from March 19 to 23, these two hour long classes run from 2:00-4:00pm.  Each day will be a different project and some days will explore more than one project, using a specific technique.  Participants can come to one class or all the classes – whichever works best for your child’s schedule.  Suggested ages are 6 to 12 years, but 3-5 year olds are welcome to come with a parent or babysitter, for the first hour only.  Please contact our department for more information about pricing and specific projects. 

The Neighborhood of Learning (NOL) and Visions for Small Schools (VSS) committees have created a survey regarding the school configurations in Rossland.  The survey can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/RosslandSchools or in hard copy format at City Hall.  Important decisions are being made in our school district regarding school configurations and they need your input!  The Neighborhood of Learning committee needs to know what Rosslanders want.  It is critical that you make your views known so that NOL committee knows what to fight for and what perspectives to present to the school district.  All views and ideas matter and they want to hear from a diverse range of people.  Make your views known!!   Rossland residents completing this survey will be eligible for a $50.00 draw prize!  Please complete this survey by March 19th to be eligible for the draw.
