Elementary students pitch in for productive garden project

Spring is a time for planting. Rob Spencer from the Town of Stettler visited our school May 22. All Grade 2 students listened to a presentation about the Stettler Community Gardens.

Spencer made an illustration of the community gardens, explaining to students all the different kinds of vegetables and plants that will be planted in the gardens. He also talked about the use of all the fresh produce. Students enjoyed sharing their favourite vegetables. Looking at the show of hands, it seemed as if our Grade 2s are real vegetable lovers. We’re not sure if their parents would agree, but that is what they said to Spencer. He thanked the students for their lovely illustrations of vegetables that the town will use as row markers.

Stefan Olafson is also happy to announce that all classes have raised enough money from recycling their milk to buy 11 big trees to plant in Stettler. Students are excited to plant these trees sometime in June.

Our staff is also participating in the Relay for Life. Students heard of this and decided to help raise some funds for cancer research and also in support of their beloved Mrs. Lynn.

Monica Sylvester’s class did an amazing fundraiser for the SES Super HERO Relay for Life team last Friday. They sold jumbo freezies in the foyer for $1 each and raised $658. Students loved this great fundraiser.

Brain freezes, sticky fingers and shiny cheeks were enjoyed by all. All the Grade 4 classes went on a field trip May 24 to the steam train and grain elevator to learn more about Stettler’s past. They got to tour all the train cars and learned a bit about the history of each one.

Students learned how the old grain elevators worked and appreciate how well it has been preserved. We say thanks to Bob Willis and his crew for the steam train tour and to Stan, Craig, Oliver and Donna, who taught us about the grain elevator.

Our students were also thrilled with their treat from Stop and Go.

On May 25, students were treated to a great band performance by the Alix-Mac band in the gym.

We want to thank the talented Joanne Henry for entertaining us with her talented high school band students.
