Another school year is underway at Stettler Elementary School. This year we have some changes to staff.

Mrs. Sandra Norman has added the junior kindergarten to her repertoire.

Mrs. Amore’ DuToit has joined the kindergarten team and is teaching in the three day program. Miss Leah Watts has moved from kindergarten to Grade One. In Grade Two, we now have Mrs. Donna Boyd-Stadelmann. Mrs. Nancy Nielson is now teaching Grade Four. Miss Jayme Sawula has also joined the Grade Four staff. Mrs. Carmen Fox has moved to Grade Five. Mrs. Vicky Laewitz will be teaching our computer classes.

In addition to a few changes in staff, we have a new school schedule. Our day is now a balanced school day, whereby we have three periods, then a recess break, followed by three more periods, then a lunchtime and recess break, concluding with three periods to end the day. While we only have two recess breaks, the breaks are longer, allowing our youngest students adequate time to get geared up and still have lots of play time, and our older students the opportunity to join club events in either the morning or afternoon. This pushes our lunch break back a bit, however students will be encouraged to have a bigger snack at the morning recess break.

You may have noticed a change to our playground in front of the school.

The kindergarten and grade one playground has an added blacktop area with a variety of fun games painted on the surface. This should mean an opportunity for a lot of new recess games by our younger students.

Our older students have an opportunity to take part in a variety of clubs.

Two have started up already. Students in grades 2 – 5 can take part in the cross country runnning club which meets Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Here students play games, and work at building muscle and being physically fit. Students in grades 4 and 5 have a chance to join the show choir, which is a singing group where students can practice singing and have the opportunity to make several public performances throughout the school year.
