Older students offer tips via PLAY peer program

HEaRT has started a new recess program called PLAY, which stands for Peer Leadership For Active Youth.

HEaRT has started a new recess program called PLAY, which stands for Peer Leadership For Active Youth.

A select group of Grade 5 students have been trained in leadership skills and divided into three teams. Every month, these peer leaders are taught different games that they teach to groups of students on the playground during several different recess times each week.

The peer leaders are responsible for leading and supervising the game, while being supported by one of the HEaRT staff.

Initial feedback has been very positive. Contact Corrina Yome at 403-741-9091 for more information.

December is definitely a busy month at Stettler Elementary School. Our choir has entertained the crowd last week at the Festival of Lights at the Community Centre in Stettler.

Classes are busy doing Christmas crafts and art and practising for their Christmas concerts.

Christmas concerts at Stettler Elementary School are Dec. 11 for 3HT, 3KR, 4MP, 4LW, 5RH, 5SO at 2 and 7 p.m., Dec. 12 for kindergarten at 6:30, Dec. 13 for 3GE, 3RV, 4NN, 4SC, 5TA, 5CF at 2 and 7 p.m., Dec. 19 for 1TJ, 1JL, 2DB, 2AH at 2 and 7 p.m., and Dec. 20 for 1KL, 1MS, 2CS, 2SG at 2 and 7 p.m.

Our Grade 5 classes are walking to the Stettler Hospital Complex on Dec. 17 to sing Christmas carols at Pine Ridge and Heart Haven. The students and the senior residents both thoroughly enjoy this festivity.

Also in Grade 5, all four classes are collecting food for the food bank, and in the middle of December they will deliver their donations to the food bank.

Cute quote of the week: While a teacher is talking to her kids about grandmas and old age, students are sharing, “My Grandma is 60, mine is 72,” and one girl pipes up with a confident voice and says, “My Grandma is 101 feet long.” Ah, kids say the darndest things.
