Great learning experience for kindergarten students

Our Early Learning Program students enjoyed stuffing their own scarecrows with real straw.

Stettler Elementary School News

Our Early Learning Program students enjoyed stuffing their own scarecrows with real straw. The look of surprise on their little faces, when they realized what fun, and what a mess they could make- on purpose, was priceless!! Mrs. Laurie-Ann Niehaus, our crafty aide, prepared the burlap sack bodies and gathered straw from a field. There was the lingering fragrance of straw in the classroom so the students had a total sensory experience as they prepared for the Thanksgiving weekend.

Our Grade 1 teacher team, Mrs. Sylvester, Mrs. Limpert, Mrs. Jackson, and Mrs. Lang hosted an informative home reading information night for all Grade 1 parents. Thank you to the more than 50 parents and grandparents who attended.

Mrs. Fox’s Grade 5 class has paired with Mrs. Sylvester’s Grade 1 class for the “reading buddies” program. They meet once a week and both classes are loving this experience.

Mrs. Jackson’s Grade 1 class made bird treats to take home and hang from a tree, so the birds can enjoy a Thanksgiving meal, too.

Kindergarten classes were very excited to take part in a bus safety presentation with Mrs. Michelle Pinder. They learned how to cross in front of the bus, how to sit in the seats properly, how to get on and off the bus safely, how to get off the bus in an emergency and how the emergency exits work. They then went for a short ride to explain what the bus driver does at uncontrolled railway crossings. It was a wonderful learning experience.

A fun rock band named Speed Control was at SES on Friday and performed songs through the eras. All the songs were from Canadian bands that have been popular throughout the years. We heard songs from ‘The Guess Who’, ‘Bare Naked Ladies’, ‘Rush’, and ‘April Wine’. Both our teachers and our kids loved the performance.
