Grade 5 students leave their legacy

The Grade 5 Library Legacy Luncheon will be held Friday, June 21, at SES.

The Grade 5 Library Legacy Luncheon will be held Friday, June 21, at SES. The annual event celebrates the conclusion of the elementary school education of our wonderful Grade 5s.

As a way of honouring and remembering the contributions that these students have made to our school, the school council sponsors an annual luncheon. This is our 20th legacy luncheon.

The school council purchases new books for the library, and students choose one of those, or an old favourite from the library shelves, in which to place their photograph and a dedication bookplate.

The legacy luncheon is always a bittersweet event. We’re happy for the successes of our oldest group of students, but sad to see them move on to the middle school. We wish them all the very best.

Las Friday was jersey day at SES. The students and staff all enjoyed supporting some of their favourite sports teams.

A big congrats goes out to SES for being the school that collected the most pull-tabs for the 2012-13 campaign. All that pulling makes a big difference in the lives of our local families who use the Ronald McDonald House. SES would like to thank Mrs. Andersson and her Grade 5 class for all their help with organizing and keeping tabs on this program. Great work.

June is a busy month out on the track for our school. The kindergarten and Grade 1 track meet will be held on June 10, grades 2/3 on June 18, and grades 4/5 on June 20. All parents and family are welcome to come cheer!

The Grade 3 students were busy writing provincial achievement tests again Tuesday. We hope they all did very well.

The Grade 4 students went to Fort Edmonton last week for their year-end trip. They enjoyed a guided tour of the fur-trading fort, made bannock, and created and raced travois. Many students also enjoyed a ride on the train and a puppet show at the old theatre. Another favourite part of the trip was wandering through the 1920s’ midway. They had perfect weather and a great trip. Thanks to all parent helpers for making the day a success.

The Grade 5 students are gearing up and getting excited for Grade 5 camp. They’ll be gone June 11 to 14 and will enjoy horse riding, canoeing, campfires and lots of games and fun. Hopefully, the weather is warm and sunny for them.
