Grade 2, 3 and 4 students were warmly welcomed at the Festival of Lights Seniors Tea on Wednesday, Nov. 24 at the Stettler Community Hall.
The student choir, under the guidance of Mrs. Hellekson, were excited for the opportunity to perform school favourites like “Violet in the Snow” and “Children of the Light.” They particularly enjoyed singing “Gingerbread House” with percussion accompaniment. Students were thrilled to receive candy canes and sweets afterwards.
Everyone is welcome to join us for our weekly Advent celebrations in the foyer. The Kindergarten and Grade 1 class led our first celebration on Monday, Nov. 29, along with some Grade 5 and 6 helpers. They sang and prayed with all of us as well as building a human Advent wreath and explained its significance.
Mark your calendars for our upcoming Advent celebrations on Monday, Dec. 6, and Monday, Dec. 13. We will also be celebrating monthly mass on Friday, Dec. 10 at Christ-King Parish.
Students are preparing for A Topsy Turvy Christmas, the name of this year’s Advent concert. Join us on Dec. 16 at Christ-King Parish at 7 p.m. for the concert, followed by a social at the Parish Hall.
Plans for our annual ski trip are underway with permission forms due on Wednesday, Dec.1. We will be skiing at Canyon Ski Resort near Red Deer on Jan. 6 and are looking forward to a more challenging hill for our older students and improving our skills.
