William Arthur Ward said that feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

Stettler Elementary School students were definitely counting their blessings the past week in celebration of Thanksgiving.

Sonya Geddes’s Grade 2 students created their own Thanksgiving class poem.

After talking about what thanksgiving means to them, 2SG students made a large class acrostic Thanksgiving poem to celebrate. They also made some decorative corn as an art project to hang around their classroom.

All Grade 2 students are having fun playing and learning about magnets.

Grade 4 students decided to show their gratitude toward former principal Mr. Rod McElroy by donating all their recycling money collected from last year to our school council. This money will be put toward the new playground equipment in memory of an exceptional educator, Mr. McElroy.

The Grade 4s also attended an allergy information session put on by Deanna, the pharmacist at Wal-Mart. Thank you, Deanna, for the excellent presentation.

Grade 4s have also planned a field trip to our local transfer station and landfill. Remember to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Congratulations to the following students who were the lucky recipients of a Terry Fox T-shirt, sponsored by the Stettler Elementary School council (thank you, school council): Drew Rouse (KSN), Bianca Brugman (1MS), Kendra Knudtson (2AH), Faith Shuckburgh (3RV), Ethan Rahn (4NN) and Mason McLaughlin (5TA).

It’s Mixing Spoons time. This fundraiser is a great opportunity to order some cookie mixes from our students and use them as Christmas gifts.

Mrs. Denyse Boyd’s kindergarten class spent the month of September learning about apples by completing apple crafts and other apple activities. These little ones are A-plus additions to our school.

Kelly Lang’s Grade 1 students enjoyed a fall afternoon this past week. During an autumn walk, students spied for things that indicated that fall has arrived. They observed that the temperatures are cooler, the leaves are changing colours and falling to the ground, the birds are flying south in a V-formation looking for warmer weather, and the days are getting shorter.

Our students also celebrated National Walk Week last week. All the classes participated in a national walk day last Wednesday as they donned their coats and went walking in the crisp autumn air.

We trust that all our families enjoyed a blessed, restful and enjoyable Thanksgiving.
