Thursday, April 19, 2012 was the day the School Board did their final vote on the Pangman School review process. A motion was put forth to discontinue Grades 9-12. The board voted 6-4 against that motion which allows Pangman school to remain as is — a K to Grade 12 school.
The process has been long and trying and has had an effect on everyone – students, parents and the community as a whole because of the pending decision, which was out of our hands.
So needless to say we are very happy and will do a celebration as a town later. Thanks to the School review committee as well as the SCC for all the work they did to promote not only our school but also the town as a whole. Also, thank you to all those from the community who came out to this meeting to support our school.
This year’s annual Sleigh Ride and Wiener Roast was held on Thursday, December 22nd. This yearly event is put on by the Pangman School Community Council.
Thank you to Darrell Rowland and Brian Schwindt for bringing in their team of horses and sleigh (on wheels this year due to lack of snow). And a big thank you to the Hometown Cafe for the delicious desserts.
The school children enjoyed rides on the horse driven sleighs and feasted on roasted wieners, roasted marshmallows, delicious desserts and hot chocolate.
