Learning to keep cool when there is fire

Stettler Elementary News

We had a fairly quiet week at SES. The last of the Grade 3 and 4 classes have started their swimming lessons this week which will run for three weeks.

Through our Leader in Me Program we have been running a photo contest. The deadline was Tuesday and we have had many great pictures handed in that were taken by students from kindergarten to Grade 5. There will be a winner from each category, which are K/1, 2/3, and 4/5.

Our kindergarten classes had a lot of fun spending time with the firefighters that came to visit our school. The students learned how to warn family members if there is a fire in their home, how to create a safe meeting spot outside and how to get out of the house safely. The firefighters also told the students what to do if you are in your room and can’t get out through the door, the importance of feeling the bedroom door and doorknob before opening it if the smoke detector is alarming or they smell smoke. Finally, our kids got to see what a fire fighter looks like when they have all their gear on. Thank-you very much to Etienne and Elizabeth for spending the morning with us.

This Thursday, Oct. 30, SES is hosting a parent information night to explain more about our Leader in Me Program. The hope is to share some of the language that we use here at school so that parents can be using the same strategies at home. We will describe what the seven habits are and how we use them in our day to day routines here at SES. All parents and kids are welcome. Please feel free to bring kids big and small as there will be activities planned for our small people during the evening. There will be snacks provided and we hope to see all our parents out this Thursday at 6:30pm!

Cute quote of the week: A teacher is showing her students how to count by tens using her age as an example. She says “Let’s count by tens to figure out how old I am.” The kids following along “10, 20, 30, 40, 50!” “Yes” she says, “I’m 50 years old.” “Oh, no” says a little boy, “that does not sound good.”
