Historic Sites of Manitoba: Juno School No. 1679 (RM of Whitemouth)

The Juno School District was established formally in April 1913, and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW14-10-12E in the Rural Municipality of Whitemouth. It had the largest catchment area of all schools in the municipality, with some students coming from as many as 10 miles away. Some came from west of the Whitemouth River by means of the Juno cable car. The district was dissolved in 1968 and its area becoming part of the Agassiz School Division.

Among the teachers of Juno School through the years were S. P. Dankin (1921), Robert Askin (1921), William Andrew Kachur (1921, 1931-1938, 1942), Michael Sadowy (1930-1931), Frances Pamula (1944-1945), Bernice Cecilia Popiel (1947-1948), Phyllis J. Dunn (1951-1951), William Lylyk (1951-1952), George Bilan (1952-1953) Patricia Elinor [Elenor] Hill (1954-1955), Margaret MacInnes (1955-1957), and Frances Apolony (1957-1958).
