Principal's Message

Thank you for Cappy's Kinder Dramatic Playhouse

A gigantic thank you to our community:
This week I was yet again reminded of the incredible community support we have here at Cappy Smart School. Some of you may recall that last year I sent out a note pleading for help. Our Kindergarten class was going to lose their beloved Dramatic Playhouse, something that had been used for many years during centres and other activities. The playhouse actually belonged to our former kindergarten teacher, Ms. Blake, who needed the playhouse at her school for her kinder class. 
So in the spring I sent out a message asking our families if anyone had some skill with carpentry and a desire to help us out.  To my great pleasure we had several families reach out, including Amy Dahl, and her partner Morgan! Amazing Cappy Community spirit! Amy had a long family history here at Cappy, having had her daughter and son attend our school, and her sister had also attended.  They remembered the playhouse being used with their daughter, and even though Amy's family would no longer be attending Cappy, she and Morgan wanted to create a project that would help the school and leave a lasting thank you from their family.  
This summer Amy and Morgan worked on the playhouse, modernized it and had it ready to go in late August. The result is astounding! We could not be more proud of the work that this family did for our school. On Friday, during our assembly, we had an "official" house opening, complete with red ribbons and borrowed hard hats. The kinders were able to see their new dramatic playhouse and Amy was able to see the impact this house had on our students. When our kinder teacher, Ms. Meakin, asked the student audience how many of you played in the house in your kinder year, almost all the students put up their hands! 
From the bottom of our hearts, a huge thank you to Amy and Morgan for building us this new playhouse, giving your time, energy, creativity, and, from what I understand, a good chunk of your living room space during construction! 
We appreciate our community and together we can do great things for our students, families, and school! 
Take care, 
Rachel MacDonald , Principal
