    And don't offer classes on taxpayers dollars that supplies are not afforded for. Do not claim cameras are a need in hs. Make the person who wants the items Crowd Fund for them or is It as I suspect..the children could care less? When we wanted things in school we did bake sales candy sales all kinds of fundraising. Not our teachers. If we wanted something we worked for it. I'm not seeing why taxpayers are paying for an elective class they can't afford. Send memo hope saying your child needs to reach so and so for a class they would like to take. Its not neglect if they dont take photography. Get help from family and friends or local artists who feel this is a necessary endeavor . why is in not asked for donated cameras? My Crowd funding goes straight to the vet. I don't see the money.there's no question of where the funds go.

Soccer at Kilbourn

Just wanted to let parents of 7yo - 9yo know that there are open spots in the soccer class at Kilbourn Park Tuesdays from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, these classes are usually always at full capacity, but this year it looks like there was a problem with the online registration, I went to the park to register my child in person. The cost of $50 will cover the uniform and classes once a week until the first week of December. So if you have a bored child between those ages send them to the park to burn some energy.

  • Sue F. Long time resident

    Is this indoor or outdoor soccer? Instruction only or are there games? Thanks!

  • It is a mini league, and they will play both indoor and outdoor weather permitting.
