This past week has been very rewarding for students as the Stettler Middle School had their final awards night on Monday, Oct. 5. Many awards were given out including Honours, Personal Growth, Citizenship, Kinsmen Cystic, I.O.D.E Athletic, Clearview Teacher, and The Stewart Family Excellence awards. Wm. E Hay Stettler Secondary Campus had their Honours Breakfast last Tuesday, and their Fall Awards on last Friday which recognizes academic achievement, community service and post secondary awards. Hundreds of dollars have been donated by the community and is greatly appreciated. Congratulations to all recipients and nominees.

On the sports end of the world, cross country had another competition last Wednesday. The junior high volleyball teams have a game today against one another, and on Oct. 21 at home versus Donalda. CARA starts on Nov. 4. The Grade 8/9 girls have tournaments on Saturday, Oct. 17 at Lacombe (parent volunteer drivers needed), Saturday, Oct. 24 at Erskine hosted by Donalda (parent volunteer drivers needed), Saturday, Nov. 7 at Stettler (CARA final tournament), and Saturday, Nov. 21 (CWAJHAA regional tournament, location to be determined). The JV boys volleyball team won their game against Hunting Hills. The sr. girls played a hard game against Sylvan, but to their disappointment, they didn’t win. Stettler Wildcats football team defeated the Rocky Mountain House Rebels last week (22-18) in a very exciting come from behind victory.

Magazine sales in the junior high will be ending on Oct. 19. Jersey day was last Wednesday and it was fun to see all the jerseys. In the sr. high, yearbooks from last year came out last week.

The New Orleans Band Trip wreath order forms were due yesterday. The Fine Arts Board received the tricaster camera and are learning how to use it. The tickets for a Christmas Carol High School have gone on sale at Wells Funiture and at the high school office. The dates are December 3-5, with Dec. 4 being a dinner theater.
