Each student leaves school ‘richer in life experience, friends and education’

Hooray! Today is the last day of the 2011-12 school year.

Hooray! Today is the last day of the 2011-12 school year.

September 2011 seems so far past as we look ahead to summer. We are proud of all students’ hard work and dedication.

Although our school year started with sadness with the passing of principal Rod McElroy, teachers did their best to create a fun and safe environment for students.

Students enjoyed many amazing activities. The Terry Fox Run was a great success and inspired students to knock out the T in can’t — if you try hard enough, you CAN. All the money raised went toward cancer research.

Our students also did a great job in presenting fabulous Christmas plays. Parents outdid themselves with delicious baked goods for the Christmas bake sale. Seuss days were another highlight at the beginning of 2012 when we encouraged students to try their best. Kim Poapst and Charlee Mappin were very entertaining and energetic Thing 1 and Thing 2. Pat Johnson dressed up as Cat in the Hat to make students smile and enjoy school even more.

The annual book swap and sale was a huge success. Sandra Norman and her team organized an enjoyable ski day in the spring. Crazy hair day, jersey day and pajama day were but a few of our school-wide spirit-building days.

Our bucket-filling campaign also taught our students the importance of filling other people’s buckets by doing good deeds and being kind. Our students also read enough books to encircle our school once.

Now, take note that these were only a few of our fun activities — not to mention field trips and other individual class events.

So, did we learn anything, did we make friends, did we grow, and are we any better?

Indeed, each student in our school is probably not only an inch or two taller, but definitely richer in life experience, friends and education. We hope each student had a fun-filled year at Stettler Elementary.

We thank you for reading about our school and supporting our school. We also thank the Stettler Independent for allowing us to write about our school.

Our wish is that you will have a safe, happy and unforgettable summer.
