Principal Nolan Krauss said 130 students have registered at the K to Grade 9 School, although the number could increase in the next few weeks.

“We are down a couple of students, but it is about the same as last year,” he added.

Krauss is pleased the school will be utilizing Chromebooks in the Grade 7/8 class with the Grade 5/6 class to follow in October.

“It is an excellent device,” he said. “Very cost effective.”

Krauss said staff and students are looking forward to the annual Terry Fox Run coming up Sept. 20. The run, a popular event, at Bluffton School, has raised more than $200,000 since its inception.

Cross country running and volleyball is also coming up soon, he noted.

“It looks like a great year ahead.
