Patching the B-ball Court

The 7th- and 8th-graders at the BICS have taken on another urgent need: improving the basketball court behind the school. The cement has cracked, and indestructible picnic tables and a garbage can are needed.

The kids knew money was the main obstacle, so they held a bake sale at McDonough's Market on April 18th, and then presented a check for the proceeds to the School Board the next day. They hope additional funds might be available from the school's ‘Sinking Fund,’ which was set up to pay for school repairs. Michelle LaFreniere hopes to complete the work before Island Clean-Up Day on May 17th. Her crew of Caitlin Boyle, Hannah Connor, Patrick Cull, Deven Cook, Maeve Green, Signe' Thomas, Eric Albin, Leaha Cary, Brittany Crandall, Kevin Gillespie, Samantha Kuligoski, Brenden Martin, Andrea Moore, Melissa Peters, Jeffery Smith and Daniel Runberg should be congratulated for identifying a problem and vigorously attacking it.
