After concerts, SES students to enjoy movie before Christmas break

It has been a very fun and exciting beginning to the month of December for the students at Stettler Elementary School.

It has been a very fun and exciting beginning to the month of December for the students at Stettler Elementary School. Our monthly assembly was held on Friday, Dec. 4, and on that day Principal Sharon Fischer and Vice-Principal Jeff Lee had to make good on their promises to the students.

The students were told that if they raised over $15 000 for the Terry Fox Foundation in September, the school administrators would sing to the whole school and would allow the students to duct tape them to the wall of the gymnasium. Both of these occurred on Friday, much to the delight of the student body. Also during that week, our students and music specialists were busy polishing up for the annual Christmas concerts. On Tuesday, Dec. 8, we had our first set of concerts. Half of our grades 2, 3, and 4 students performed for fellow students, grandparents, parents, and community members in three different concerts held that day. There were performances held at 10 a.m., 2 p.m., and 7 p.m. Then on Wednesday, Dec. 9, our grades 5 and 6 music and musical theatre classes shared their talents with the public during the Christmas concerts that they worked hard to put together. Other concerts this week will be the concerts held on Thursday, Dec. 10, showcasing the talents of the remaining grades 2, 3, and 4 students.

Then next week, all of our remaining students will have an opportunity to share what they have been working so hard to prepare for this holiday season. Our grades 5 and 6 band students will be a part of the annual “Night of the Bands” on Monday, Dec. 14, and our kindergarten and Grade 1 students will share their Christmas spirit and joy with everyone who comes out to their concerts on Tuesday, Dec. 15 and Thursday, Dec. 17. That will end the concert season for 2015, but our students will have an additional day of school before we dismiss for the Christmas Break. The staff and students will walk to the Jewel Theatre on that last day of school to enjoy a movie, popcorn and water as part of the final school day celebration. We would like to thank Sonya and Byron Geddes, owners of the theatre, for generously sponsoring this event again this year. We truly appreciate your support.
