Cross-country running back on track at Mother Teresa School

.

Halkirk Herald

Mother Teresa School opened its doors to 43 students this year, which include four new Grade 1 students and three kindergarten beginners.

Staffing is unchanged with Ms. Veronica Pinoski as principal and homeroom teacher to the K-to-Grade 3 students. Ms. Tracey Solden teaches the Grade 4 to Grade 6 students while Mr. Eric Neilson and Mr. Mike Courtney share the junior high subjects. Mrs. Maxine Baird is the school secretary, librarian and instructional assistant.

Mrs. Clara Fowler remains as the school custodian. Darcy Mabbott, Melody Kent and Connie Turre are our area bus drivers, with Bernie Doan as a spare driver.

The Grade 6 to 9 students commence cross-country running practice this week.

The first school council meeting for this year and the opportunity to “meet the teachers” night will be Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. All parents are encouraged to attend.

Our students will participate in the Terry Fox run on Sept. 30 in Castor.

Harvest is well underway in our area, thanks to the wonderful warm weather during the past two weeks. Seems like summer just arrived.

Winter hours go into effect at the landfill site on Oct. 1. Saturday hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays.

Mary Stewart attended the third birthday party of her great-granddaughter, Brooklyn Stewart, in Stettler last Friday evening, along with many other family members.

Linda and Wally Lehmann have enjoyed a busy summer travelling to the local farmers’ markets, meeting new people and displaying Linda’s jewelry creations.

Sheryl Bunbury and daughter Tanya were part of the group of family and friends who attended a stagette weekend in Kananaskis honouring bride-elect Stephanie Bunbury of Cochrane.

Coming up Sept. 20 is the pot-luck supper and meeting at the senior centre. Everyone is invited to attend.
