Endiang Enterprise

The students of the Byemoor School enjoyed a year-end trip to the Science Centre in Edmonton last week. School doors closed Tuesday for the much anticipated summer holidays. Bus driver Deanna Johnson has retired after 15 years of driving the school bus. We hope you enjoy your retirement Deanna.
