Best of luck to Grade 8 in high school

Can you believe the end of the school year is here?


Can you believe the end of the school year is here? This will be the last article submitted by students from the SMS journalism class this year. It has been a great year for everyone here at Stettler Middle School and it will be sad saying goodbye to the Grade 8 students as they venture off to high school. We wish them the best of success next year and every year after.

It’s a busy time with students studying for their final exams. The Grade 6 students write the following P.A.T.s on the assigned dates: language arts is today, math will be tomorrow, science on June 20 and social studies on June 23. Grade 7 and 8 students write their final exams as outlined: math on June 20, language arts on June 23, science on June 24, and social studies on June 25. Exam times are from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., with no student allowed to leave before 11 a.m. Those needing more time will be allowed to stay.

On June 25, Grade 8 students will be staying after their social studies exam in order to meet their high school TA teacher for next year. This will be the last day for students. Students can return on Friday, June 27 to pick up their report cards from 1 to 2 p.m. from their homeroom teachers. If they are unable to pick them up during that time, they will be mailed out.

Mrs. Hallett would like to thank CJ Hanson from Performance Physio for coming in and teaching the Grade 8 nutrition and fitness class about proper fitness. It was a great experience for the students.

The last C.I.A. lunch is being held today. All those who received C.I.A. nominations in the last few months are invited to take part and enjoy a free meal of burgers, chips and pop.

The Grade 6 D.A.R.E. graduation ceremony will be held this Monday in the PAC from 10:45 a.m. to noon.

The 6C class won the pizza party for having the best participation at our SMS track event on June 3. Congratulations!

A big thank you goes out to all parents and staff that helped out with our track meet. C.A.R.A. track meet was on June 10 with other schools competing against ours. A record was broken for the Grade 7 boys 200m race by Noah McKay. Way to go, Noah. We had outstanding performances by the following students: Talon Conner, Shayna Brower, Bailey Webb, Robert Mbongalonzi, and Noah McKay. Overall, we had a higher number of athletes participating than usual. Everyone did very well and we are proud of their accomplishments.

The annual talent show was this past Thursday and it was great to see all the students sharing their talents and having fun at the same time. A special thank you goes out to Mrs. Erickson and Mr. Rahn for organizing the event and helping the students with the preparation of their individual pieces.

The winner of the chugalug contest last Wednesday was Brenden Tucker. He chugged the most pop over the lunch hour to earn that title.

The night of the bands was a huge success. Mr. Rahn was very pleased with how well everything went and proud of his band’s accomplishments this year. The girls group had their windup last Thursday and the Y-CAT windup was yesterday.

All library books are due into the library tomorrow. The grades 7 and 8 textbooks will be handed in when they arrive to write that particular exam. If library books or textbooks are not returned, they will be assumed lost and a bill will be sent home in the report cards.

From everyone at Stettler Middle School, we would like to wish everyone a wonderful summer and see you back here in September!
