With the warm temperatures continuing, Mrs. Jackson’s Grade 1 students were delighted to be able to go outside this week during daily physical activity time. They worked together to build a snow fort. The project proved to be an example of Habit 6, Synergize, in action! It was a great opportunity for the students to be outside, enjoying the beautiful weather.

Our kindergarten students were excited all week as they looked forward to celebrating penguin day. Friday morning they arrived at school as planned wearing black and white to represent penguins. In class they made headbands and proudly marched around imitating penguins. It was great fun for everyone!

Friday afternoon all the students and staff gathered in the gym for the first assembly of 2015. Mrs. Van Ringen’s Grade 3 class lead everyone in singing the 7 Habit’s song. Mrs.

Boyd and her Grade 4 students had worked hard preparing a skit, as well as a video, representing Habit 2. Everyone was intrigued by the informative presentation.

Leia and Van Duff, two student leaders from SES, along with their older brother Noah from SMS, were recognized for their community spirit; during the holidays the three Duff siblings raised $1 010.20 for the Hamper Society by conducting a bottle drive. What a wonderful way to help others who are less fortunate. Mrs. Fischer also presented 14 student leaders with Leader of the Week certificates.

Stettler Elementary is bustling with activity in preparation for two action packed, fun filled Medieval Days next week.

The Lighthouse Team, which is made up of one teacher representative from each grade (K-8), will receive further training on Thursday, Jan. 29. Professional Day is Friday, Jan. 30. All Stettler Elementary and Stettler Middle School staff will receive further Leader In Me training.
