Despite going line by line through the budget numerous times and trying to find as many efficiencies as possible, it will be red ink for Prairie Rose School Division (PRSD) for 2011-12. Board trustees called a special meeting Tuesday to approve the budget which has to be sent for Ministerial approval by the end of June.

Just like a kaleidoscope, the Prairie Rose School Division's June 11 fundraiser was a colourful event.

In a variety of colours: students, parents, teachers and even members of a variety of southeastern Alberta communities came out to support the fine arts program in the Prairie Rose School Division.

The Prairie Rose School Division hosted its inaugural Kaleidoscope of the Arts Fun Run at River Valley Park in south Redcliff Saturday morning. With 75 runners out, organizers were thrilled with the response.
No financial tallies were gathered as of yet, but totals should be figured out this upcoming week. For more on this story, read the June 17th edition of Prairie Post.
