Highlights at HHS elementary

Harrison Hot Springs elementary has suffered a few break-ins over the winter, principal Mark Classen told school board trustees on Tuesday night.

About $8,000 worth of equipment was stolen over three incidents. The first took place just before Christmas, when a thief stole about $5,000 in electronic equipment. That was replaced, and then there was a second break in, where about $2,000 in gear was stolen.

On the third break in, the thief walked away with about $700. But by then, the school had installed security cameras throughout the school grounds and upgraded their security system.

RCMP have the image obtained, said Sgt. Stu Falebrinza, and they are following all leads.

But Classen wasn’t just speaking to trustees about the break in. The meeting, which was held at HHS elementary, was a chance for the principal to show off all the good things happening at his school.

One of those highlights is the new climbing, or traversing, wall. The equipment was purchased in the summer, and installed in the gym this January.

Classen also reported they had just taken the less popular books out their library system, and are looking forward to building up their library with newer materials, along with a continuation of improving their physical education equipment.
