Operation Christmas Boxes is underway at the Erskine School. All donations will be gratefully accepted. The boxes are due on Nov. 20.
The Erskine Extreme Hoodies are available again this year and orders for them are due on Nov. 14.
Coming up at the school on Friday is Dress-up Day, Thursday Nov. 12 is PD Day, so the kids will have both 11 and 12th off school, Nov 15th is CWAJHAA volleyball tournament (Good Luck Erskine), and the parent council meeting is on Nov. 19 at the school library; report cards are sent home on Nov. 25.
I see that there are getting to be lots of ads for Christmas activities and tea and bake sales and I guess Christmas will be here before we know it.
Get well wishes are extended to Harry Johnson Sr., hoping he makes a speedy recovery.
Happy anniversary to Ed & Debbie Waugh, who celebrated their 40th anniversary on the weekend and happy anniversary to my husband Mel on Nov. 13 — we have been married for 49 years. Oh my!!
Three Erskine students travelled to Strathcona Wilderness Centre on Saturday to compete in the Alberta provincial cross-country races. These three, Ava Lee, Avery Chick and Isaac Lee did made their personal bests in this fast-paced race. They competed with the best of the best indoor track teams from the province and put Erskine on the map with their running. Very well done!
Ava did 2 km in 8.55 min in the Peewee girls category, Avery did 2 km in 8.40 min in the Bantam girls class and Isaac did 2 km in 7.13 min for the Bantam boys.
The Erskine volleyball team got second in the CARA volleyball tournament held in Stettler, so they will go to the CWAJHAA on November 15.
