Bluffton School, a Kindergarten to Grade 9 school with a student population of around 140 students, is back in full force with a couple of new faces on the teaching staff.

Jaleesa Grzech, who taught at the school previously, is filling in for Shelley McFadden in Grade 1 and Darci Cole is teaching one day a week in the Grade 5/6 classroom and Heather Torris, an educational assistant is also in the Grade 5/6.

The school is continuing with its GAFE (goggle apps for education) program and the one to one chrome book initiative using cloud based computing is underway in grades five to nine.

This year students will have the opportunity to participate in a half hour block each day which will focus on individual needs related to literacy and numeracy.

The 35 annual Terry Fox Run will be held Sept. 19 at 1 p.m.

The annual Conoco Phillips welcome back barbecue is tentatively scheduled to be held Sept. 18 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the school.
