Wednesday, Sept. 23, the Grade 3 classes watched Alberta’s International Space Station event live on our smartboards. Dr. Robert Thirsk and the other astronauts aboard the space station answered questions asked by students from Vulcan, Alberta.

It was really interesting to listen to the answers given by the astronauts and cool to know that it was all happening as we watched.

Stettler Elementary School held its annual Terry Fox Run on Friday, Sept. 25.

The weather was beautiful, and many families joined in as we travelled around the school track.

The run topped off a day filled with exciting activities, like a sock hop at recess, and a donut and juice snack.

The Grade 4/5 girls also came in second place in their division with Abagail Spencer placing seventh. Overall, Stettler Elementary School placed third.
