EHS Football Field and Track Upgrade Project

NOTE:- Article revised because original press release from GSSD did not mention the timescale of the Mosaic donation, and it was easy to misinterpret that the donation had only just been made when it was in fact made last year.

 

GSSD has announced the Football Field & Track Upgrade Project at EHS, and donations are now being sought from both corporate entities and individuals.   Below are excerpts from an official information release, and the full PDF documents may be accessed at the bottom of this page.

The Esterhazy football field and track has been in desperate need of upgrades for years and lacks proper drainage making it difficult to use much of the time. Esterhazy is the hub of our junior and senior football program drawing students from Stockholm, Dubuc, Atwater, Langenburg, Churchbridge, Gerald, Yarbo, Spy Hill, and Tantallon. We also host an annual district track meet in Esterhazy for students from these communities as well.

We are very thankful for Mosaic’s $50,000 donation to get us started! This exciting project includes excavation of the existing field with proper grading, drainage, and compaction; and installation of a pop‐up sprinkler system. Materials required include top soil, grass seed, concrete, and shale. To date, the field has been professionally surveyed, specifications have been received, and we are in the process of inviting local tenders for a general contractor. This is estimated to be approximately $200,000; therefore, we are very grateful for any donations in the form of labour, materials, and/or money.

Major contributors will be recognized on signage located in a prominent location on the football field. We are grateful for any donations of any amount, and receipts will be provided for anything over $20. Cheques should be payable to Good Spirit School Division and note it is for the EHS Football Field and Track project. The first 50 who donate over $1000 get their choice of a game worn jersey or helmet from the Warriors as a keepsake.

EHS – Principal’s Message

We are at the half-way point of the school year, and everything seems to be going smoothly, if not busy. Intramural curling has just wrapped up. Thanks to Ms. Scharnatta-Kerr and Ms. Harrick for overseeing this. Extracurricular curling is running and coached by Ms. Scharnatta-Kerr and Mr. Heise. Archery is moving into competition season. Basketball will be going into March. Badminton will fire up then.

March is the month for artistic endeavours at EHS. It is festival month for the Music Program. EHS is hosting the Potashville Festival March 5-6. The choirs are going to Telemiracle on March 4. The Sr. Drama Club will present two productions “Reservations” and “Emotional Baggage” on March 19 in the Jr. Gym.
Thank you to Mr. Daniel for the massive organization required for Activity Day on March 14.

We will host the High School orientation Night later in April because we are unsure of our staffing for next year. That depends upon the provincial government budget.
If you have any questions or concerns, please give me a call.

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!”
