It’s that time of year, back to school, and guess what comes with that deal: new staff, new students, Terry Fox Run, Welcome Back Dance, and look your best for picture day was on Sept. 30.

Let’s welcome our new grade 6 students from Stettler Elementary, other new students to our school and our new staff to our school and make this a great year. Our new staff members are Mrs. D. Younghans and Mrs. Hallett.

We welcomed the Grade 6 students with the first dance with free admission. Dance admission for the Grade 7 and 8s was $5 or anyone who brought a food donation to be donated to the food bank paid only $4.

Also Sept. 25 was not only the date of the welcoming dance, but also of the Terry Fox Run. After a short video in the gym, all students ran to West Stettler Park where our school council served hotdogs, water or juice for lunch. Then the fun activities, led by 8D, to celebrate Terry Fox Day began. In each classroom was a can with the title Toonies For Terry so each student could bring a loonie or toonie to donate.

Magazine sales started on Sept 29. Students will be knocking on your doors asking if you would like to buy subscriptions to your favorite magazines. There are prizes for the students with the most sales. This money goes towards items and trips such as our sports teams, field trips, activity days and new sports uniforms.

Awards night was on Monday, Oct. 5, 7:00 p.m. in the PAC. Students will were awarded with different individual rewards for sports, honor roll, citizenship, and much more.

The public also joined in this celebration of our students.
