Elementary students line up for Terry Fox Run

We had a great turnout at the Stettler Elementary School open house last Thursday

We had a great turnout at the Stettler Elementary School open house last Thursday, and we would like to thank the many parents, friends, grandparents and siblings who came.

We enjoyed meeting and visiting with each and every one of you!

We have some changes in staff this year, with Ms. Denise Campbell as our new principal. In addition, Mrs. Becky Baltimore is teaching the youngest students in our pre-kindergarten program and Mrs. Geraldine Bruketa is teaching kindergarten.

Mrs. Katy Syson is the author of our newspaper columns and is our newest teacher. She joins the Grade 5 team of teachers and also teaches kindergarten, computers and music.

Mrs. Syson advises that she’s “pleased to be teaching at the same school I attended as a little girl.”

Our kindergarten students are practising their running in preparation for the annual Terry Fox Run, which will be held this Friday.

All parents, grandparents and siblings, babysitters/strollers, are welcome to join us.

Pledge sheets are due back to the school before the run.

SES hallways are now adorned with many colourful flags. Culture Days are being celebrated in conjunction with the Terry Fox Run.

Students are learning about the different countries that participate in the Terry Fox Run and have prepared flags from those countries.

The grades 2 to 5 cross-country team competed in Wetaskiwin this past weekend at the Peace Hills Cross-country Run, with 50 athletes making SES very proud.

The grades 2/3 boys had an overall placing of first and third. The grades 2/3 girls had an overall placing of second and third.

Some honorable mentions go to our top-10 finishers, who were Colby Frank (Grade 1), Carter Kranzler (Grade 2), David Butterwick (Grade 2), Gabby Heck (Grade 3) and Brooke Mulgrove (Grade 5).

Thanks to the eight staff members who attended the cross-country meet.

Under the Safe and Caring School umbrella, there are two new procedures at SES.

Firstly, we’re implementing a “Sign-in-Sheet” for visitors to sign when entering the school.

Secondly, we’re asking for support in overcoming congestion at dismissal time. Parents are asked to consider waiting outside the school for their children rather than entering our foyers and hallways at the busiest time of the day.

Parents and staff advise they have had some extremely positive comments about those new procedures.
