STETTLER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL — Stettler Elementary School has amazing students and on Friday, Jan. 20, our teachers had an opportunity to do a “shout out” to some of these students during the January assembly. We are truly blessed with so many great kids in the school and we do not always make the time to simply say thank you.

We have many leadership programs in the school and our students are recognized through these, but we have decided to add the quick “shout outs” to our monthly assemblies. Our Grade 6 students in 6BP are leaders and are continually looking for ways to make a difference and to give back to the community as well. As part of this, Mrs. Prehn and the class offered a Leadership Lunch package at the annual Festival of Lights. The high bid for this package was won by Evelyn Strandquist, and she and her guests spent time on Friday being dined and educated by these Grade 6 students.

The Grade 6 students were split into seven groups of four, and each team was responsible for explaining one of the seven habits. Using Google slides, the students collaborated to create a presentation consisting of explanations, scenarios, skits, videos, and quotes. The class then served subs on interactive place mats with bottles of water wrapped in inspirational quotes. As well, the students served cupcakes, since everyone knows that cupcakes can make everything better!

Along with every student being responsible for the presentation of their habit, students were also given the various roles for this function. The roles included host/hostess, photographer, visual designers for posters, and servers. The students were encouraged to dress in “business attire” and our guests were incredibly enthusiastic, encouraging and supportive – thank you! These students thoroughly enjoyed the class guests and for having a chance to inspire others and give back to the community. This was a wonderful win-win opportunity shared between our students and the community.

Our Grade 2 and 3 students were also busy last week. On Monday they travelled to Wayne and Lisa Smith’s house to learn about igloo building. The visit fit in well with the Grade 2 social studies and science curriculums.

Students in all of these classes learned about insulators and the trip fit in with their study of Iqaluit, capital of Nunavut. The students and teachers genuinely appreciate the time and knowledge that Mr. Wayne Smith shared with them on the subject of igloo building. Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity again this year, Mr. Smith.

Our students continue to be busy with student-led clubs, basketball, and skiing. The next school ski trip will be held this Thursday, Jan. 26 and staff and students will be leaving the school at 2:30 p.m. This is a great opportunity for students to learn a new skill, just as their teachers continue to look for new skills and knowledge. During the past week, our teachers have had many different professional development opportunities and many of them have taken advantage of this chance to learn new and exciting things.
