Grade 5 student to meet environment minister

AMORE du TOIT/Elementary News

In early April, several of the grade five students at Stettler Elementary School completed an activity booklet entitled, “Minister for the Day.” These booklets were mailed to the Legislative Building in Edmonton and judged along with hundreds of others from across the province. This program is designed to bring further environmental awareness to our students, and to review and teach about the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling. We are very proud to announce that Sydney Poapst was one of 12 winners from all of Alberta. Sydney and the other 11 students will spend June 8 in Edmonton meeting the environment minister and spending the day at the legislative building. Sydney (and her teacher) also gets to have lunch with Mr. Rob Renner, take part in a mock legislature, tour Telus World of Science, and watch an IMAX movie entitled Amazon. The IMAX experience will help students discover wetland ecosystems in the Amazon. Congratulations to Sydney and to all of the grade five students that worked hard to complete the booklet! There were many great entries this year and the judges had a very difficult time narrowing it down.

Sandra Norman’s kindergarten class performed their amazing Little Red Hen concert for their appreciative parents and other friends.

Penny Dahl, the school wellness worker, treated all her students to a special lunch on May 27. Students enjoyed this kind gesture.

Amore du Toit’s ocean wall was just recently completed. Students completed daily crafts to fill the ocean with all ocean critters. The other kindergarten classes filled their rooms with crafts of ocean animals as well.

All other grades are looking forward to many exciting field trips and other exciting places. Oh, the places we’ll go!
