Sport stacking has been scientifically studied, and has been proven to have many benefits. One of these is right and left brain activation. In a recent study, Dr. Melanie Hart empirically examined the electrical activity of the two hemispheres of the brain, as measured by an electroencephalogram (EEG), while sport stacking. The results proved that as well as using both hands at the same time, sport stacking requires both sides of the brain to work in conjunction in order for the stacker to be successful. This is important, as most people use one side of their brain more than others, and it has been proven that using both sides of the brain at the same time will improve all aspects of learning.

This week in our Sports Stacking Club at SES, Cassie Barca had the fastest 3-6-3 time, clocking in at 11.83 seconds to do all 19 moves required in this stack, and Jordyne Wolkowski remains undefeated at 5.34 in the 3-3-3 stack. Great work girls!

The SES Olympic dream hallway is almost complete. The students at Stettler elementary each drew a picture of what their SES Olympic Dream would be.

We are all eagerly anticipating the upcoming Olympics at Stettler Elementary School.
