Erskine School hosted its Grade 9 farewell last week in the gym.

All six Grade 9 students participated in the program and all junior high teachers took part in the presentations to the students.

Brooklyn Peterson and Tim Gardner were the mistress and master of ceremonies. Clayton Page compiled the class predictions.

Jordan Boehlke gave the tribute to the teachers, and Mrs. Faltin gave the response.

Shane Bernard delivered the tribute to the parents, and his father, Gaetan Bernard, gave the response.

Gardner and Allyson Marshall presented the class history. The final class montage was put together by Marshall and Peterson.

Congratulations to Erskine’s Grade 9 graduates and best wishes at William E. Hay Composite High School.

ECS to Grade 3 students travel to Big Valley today for a track meet. The grades 4 to 7 students go down to Big Valley on Thursday for the upper-elementary track meet.

A legacy dinner, hosted by the school council, will be held Thursday for the Grade 9 students.

It has become a tradition in Erskine for the past several years that the Grade 9s leave behind a legacy to the school.

They’re given the opportunity to choose and order a book, then they leave a signed message in the book, and the book goes to the Erskine library for future students to check out.

A representative from Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton is coming to Erskine on Friday to receive a cheque from the school. It represents money raised by students as part of their Hank Boer mini marathon fun run last month.
