New Publication Schedule

Effective immediately, we are eliminating the weekly publication schedule in favour of updating the site as event announcements are received. This change will allow late submissions to be published, although you will get far more publicity power if you give us plenty of advanced notice. Please remember that announcements for schools, sports teams, churches, clubs, charities, and non-commercial events are placed on this site for free. These are fully sponsored by North Valley Credit Union, so keep us informed and we will keep the public informed.

 

NVCU school donation will go towards Chromebooks

North Valley Credit Union’s Stockholm branch recently donated $1000 to Macdonald school. The funds will go towards purchasing Chromebooks for the grade 7 to 9 students. Below is the thank you note from Reg Leidl, Principal of the school.

“The students and staff of Macdonald School would like to thank the Stockholm branch of the North Valley Credit Union for their very generous donation of $1000.00. This money will be used to purchase Chromebooks for the grade 7 – 9 students in the school. The students are part of a distributed learning math pilot project being undertaken by the school and the Good Spirit School Division. This donation helps ensure that all students in grade 7 – 9 will have their own piece of technology to support their learning. Thank you so much!”
