On Thursday, Oct. 4, ATCO Electric put on an electrical-safety demonstration for Mr. Howell’s Grade 5 science class at Stettler Elementary School.

Gord Latham and Joel Dorn showed the students a model of an electrified town that showed people engaging in unsafe activities around power poles, transformers and other devices that produce electricity.

The students have been studying a unit on magnetism and electricity, and they were asked why those activities in the town were unsafe. The students enjoyed the highly educational demonstration, and became more aware of how to be safe when they are near high voltage.

In Mrs. Syson’s science class, the students have been experimenting with classroom chemistry and got to make and eat rock candy that they made in a crystal-making experiment!

On Friday, we held our Terry Fox wind-up assembly in the gym. We had a very special guest speaker, Mrs. Lynn.

We would like to thank Mrs. Lynn for sharing her journey and all her pictures with us. Mrs. Lynn is an inspiration to us all.

Both the Book Club and the Computer Club have now started for grades 4 and 5 students. The clubs meet during lunch recess once a week, and so far the turnout has been amazing.

This Thursday, our whole school gets to enjoy a performance by Splash ’N’ Boots in the Performing Arts Centre.

A reminder that our school has a web page with a wealth of information on it relating to our school. Parents are encouraged to check the site often: http://ses.clearview.ab.ca.

Also, school fees for the 2012-13 school year are due this Oct. 31.
