Christmas concerts entertained the community

STETTLER ELEMENTARY NEWS -- It is the season to be busy, and that it has been at Stettler Elementary School.

STETTLER ELEMENTARY NEWS — It is the season to be busy, and that it has been at Stettler Elementary School. The students have worked and rehearsed and finally had an opportunity to showcase all of their talent at our Christmas concerts. Grade 2, 3, and 4 students were divided into two groups that each performed three times in one day. These performances were held at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on both Tuesday and Thursday last week. Then on Wednesday, Dec. 9, our Grade 5 and 6 music and musical theatre classes shared their talents with the public during the Christmas concerts that they too worked hard to put together. All of these concerts were supremely successful and set the bar pretty high for our band students and kindergarten/Grade 1 students to compete with this week. On Monday, Dec. 14, our Grade 5 and 6 band students took part in the very successful “Night of the Bands” held annually and under the direction of Mr. Eric Rahn. Then the next night, half of our kindergarten and Grade 1 students entertained parents, grandparents, and the general public with their cute and very well rehearsed concert. Tonight, Wednesday, Dec. 16, the other half of our youngest students will be on stage and ready to perform at 6:30 p.m.

Other activities that have been keeping us busy include visits to the seniors’ residences in town. We had our kindergarten students sing and make crafts with seniors at Paragon Place, Points West, Heart Haven, Willow Creek on Wednesday, Dec. 9, as well our Grade 4 students continued to visit and play crib with the seniors. These students visited the seniors again yesterday, and delivered cards and candy canes along with their visit and crib playing. Also this week, we have Grade 6 students visiting Heritage House on Wednesday, and Grade 1s visiting on Thursday. We always learn so much from the experienced members of our community.

In other news, Friday, Dec. 11, saw us dress in green as the kindergarten students took part in “Grinch Day”. That day, we were also honoured to receive a visit from Brent Schiffner and his family as he presented a cheque from Ember Resources Inc. to our school. We sincerely appreciate the support and will use this money to keep our school actively moving forward with “The Leader in Me” program. The staff and students at Stettler Elementary School wish each and every one of you a very merry Christmas, and sincerely hope that this holiday season brings much joy to you and your family.
