At the Botha School, they have had a busy two months since this school year started. Grades 1-4 will be going on a field trip this Friday. The students also had a great Terry Fox Run, and thanks to everyone, they were able to raise $1523.53, best support in years. Thanks also to the student council for supplying the juice and to Mrs. Kobi for baking an enormous amount of cookies for the runners. Everything and everyone was greatly appreciated.

Cookie forms have been sent out as this is the school big fundraiser for the year. It goes to support the students’ activities such as field trips, swimming lessons, etc. So thank you to everyone that orders.

Some students from our school will be participating in a cross country meet at the Theresetta School and students in Grade5-6 will be part of a 2 km. race; way to go everyone.

In Mrs. Burton’s kindergarten class, they are really happy with the older students treating them so good in school and at recess. Grades 1-4 also helped them on their project day, going on the bug hunt.

In Mrs Boxma’s Grade 1-2 class, they have been reading and re-reading to make sure it makes sense and is easy to read in their writing projects.

Talking about reading, in Social Studies they are reading about Nunavut, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia.

Mrs. Maxwell’s Grade 2 and 3s are busy writing mechanics, capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure and paragraphing. They are both back to reading again, too.

Mrs. Maxwell would like to thank everyone who started their reading schedules again and for those who haven’t yet,October is a great month to start your home reading. Please remember to mark this down in their agendas.

In Mrs. Melnyk’s class, they are working on fairy tales, reading and writing on original tales.They are also learning the background of Alberta and than as groups picking and studying about one region and teaching the rest of the class about it. They also will be participating in the student vote, so talk to your child about democracy.

Mr. Flieger’s class have been busy with numbers and decimals, factors and fractions and have finished 2 units already. In the third unit they are working on percentages and rations. . They to are getting ready for the student vote and learning about democracy. In 4-5 Science, they help to make Botha’s school a greener school by working on waste and our world and environmental issues and are doing quite well at this.

Congratulations goes out to the big three winners that Lorraine Hankins were selling on them hunting raffles tickets, way togo.

Village office meeting happens tomorrow evening at 7 p.m., so please attend.

Quilting takes place on the 26th at 9:30 a.m., and they would like to see everyone attend.

In closing I would like to send a big thank you to all our children and friends for holding one fantastic event at our 25th wedding anniversary held this past Saturday at the Botha Hall. I really truly appreciated everything and to see everyone.
