Hat Day at SES raises funds for Stettler Food Bank

On Jan. 27, staff and students wore hats to school and everyone who brought in $2.00, wore their hat for the duration of the day.

STETTLER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL — Stettler Elementary School had another amazing ski trip on Thursday, Jan. 26. The students, along with staff and parent volunteers, arrived at Canyon Ski Hill at approximately 3:30 p.m., got fitted with skis or snowboards, took lessons, and then had the remainder of the evening to practice their new skills. There was much laughter and chatter and for the most part everyone had a great time. Our students and teachers are looking forward to another ski trip on Thursday, Feb. 9.

On Friday, Jan. 27, staff and students wore hats to school. Everyone who brought in $2.00 was invited to wear their hat for the duration of the day. All moneys brought in that day are being donated to the Stettler Food Bank, and we are thrilled to announce that we raised almost $700 for this cause. Our students loved donning their caps and the food bank will surely be able to use these funds to continue the great work that they do.

On Monday, Jan. 30, Ms. Aimee Roste, along with Mrs. Fischer and six students from 5AR, walked to Clearview School Division to take part in the Zone 4 board meeting that was being held there. Ms. Roste explained to board members, from across this region, some of the things that her and her class have been busy exploring this school year. Then the students demonstrated some of the activities that they have borrowed from the Makerspace, while board members looked on and asked questions. It was a very enlightening opportunity for board members and a great chance for some of our students to show off their talents and skills. We are very proud of these students and their fine teacher for the great job that they did on Monday. Also on that day, our teachers were treated to a lunch catered by Teresa’s Catering. We would like to extend our gratitude to Clearview School Division for sponsoring this lunch and for giving us an opportunity to spend a lunch break together visiting and enjoying great food. We are also very grateful to our school council who organized a group of parents to man the phones, supervise the classrooms, and take care of our outside supervision responsibilities so we could thoroughly enjoy this time together as a staff.

On Wednesday and Thursday this week we are having DINO days. Thank you to Mrs. Kim Poapst and to all of the staff members who have helped her to organize this event. Every year our students are treated to a couple of very special days of activities that come with a powerful message. Last year we held Super Hero Days and the year before that was Medieval Days. Not only do our students have a great deal of fun, but they also get to reflect on themselves, our school and what we can do to make a difference in the school and the world. This year students are being challenged to practice gratitude. It is a fabulous way to begin the month of February.

Then after these fun-filled activity days the students will be able to sleep in on Friday, Feb. 3, as the teachers attend sessions as part of the Professional Development Day. We are thrilled that Frank Teravich, from Franklin-Covey, will be coming to Stettler Elementary School on that day to share more knowledge and information on “The Leader in Me Program.” We love the fact that our students have an opportunity to practice the “Seven Habits” at the school, and we could not be happier that Frank is coming to work with our staff, so that we can continue to improve, practice and become better leaders for our students.
