Watching the evening news recently, I seen a discussion on Canada’s education system, on how the standards for math, among other subjects, has declined.

A Christmas party for Rainycrest residents took place Friday afternoon.
Hallett Hall was set up for party time, with the fireplace crackling, Christmas music playing, and all the Rainycrest Auxiliary members decked out in their Christmas hats ready to have fun.
The residents were treated to a yummy snack, warm apple cider, and complimentary tidbits which they so enjoy every year.
I am writing this letter as a concerned parent, taxpayer, and community member.
I am appalled by the senior administration at the Rainy River District School Board. These individuals make a living in the education system, but clearly care very little about the education of our children.
I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the countless individuals and businesses who were instrumental in making my recent spaghetti dinner benefit a huge success!

We would like to thank everyone who donated their time and treats for our “Hallowe’en Haunted Backyard,” including friends, volunteers, and Coach Wayne and the Lakers, but especially the people who vandalized our place after the event.
We appreciate their effort. But with the help of our Lakers’ team, my place cleaned up pretty good.
The council of the Township of La Vallee feels it is important to add information to the article in the Nov. 6 issue of the Fort Frances Times regarding the school accommodation meeting which was scheduled for Nov. 19 at La Place Rendez-Vous.
The Associates of Ste. Marguerite d’Youville held another successful coat drive.
Thanks to all the generous people who came with coats, hats, mittens, and boots.
But I also would like to thank the town for the use of the East End hall and Richard at McTaggarts for the use of the coat racks.
