Castleford Schools Raise Money For New PA Speakers


By Jay Michaels

Castleford, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Castleford Schools are raising money to improve their safety system. That means adding two new outside speakers to their public address system.

Right now at Castleford Schools, teachers and students on the playground can't hear announcements on the public address system.

Assistant Principal Clint Evans says, "Staff members can't always hear what's going on here in the building. It just makes it so everyone on campus will know what's going on. If we have an emergency situation, or even if we don't, if we need to call someone in, we don't have that option outside."

To remedy that situation, the school is holding a Mexican lunch and dinner fundraiser next weekend.

Fundraiser spokewoman Irma Vereni Bokma says, "It's authentic Mexican food. The food that Mexican families have on our tables every day. Not the Mexican American food, it's authentic Mexican food."

They're hoping to raise $3500. They'll be serving the meals at the Castleford Community Center across the street from the school.

Evans says, "This will be a fun event, it's right before Cinco de Mayo, so it's a good community celebration, it brings the whole community. And it helps prevent any potential issues that might come up."

The fundraiser will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. next Saturday May 4th. You can donate any amount of money you'd like to pay for your meal.
