Hundreds of children, parents and staff attended an open house at Budlong Monday the Budlong Local School Council learned Tuesday.
“It was a big success,” according to Principal Al Solomon. “There must have been a thousand people in the building.”
Solomon told the LSC the school had filed two teaching positions approved earlier by the LSC.
The LSC will be sending a survey to parents asking for their input on the extended school day. LSC members said drama, arts and crafts, soccer and homework are very popular choices to fill the additional time.
While LEGO toys and time is popular among younger children, there is a need to develop more activities for older children, Solomon noted.
The Budlong LSC has one parent opening. A second parent opening may happen shortly, it was noted.
Parents should apply to the LSC to fill the temporary vacancy.
