Open house was well attended

Each month our classes take turns filling the display cases in the front of the school. This month Miss Sawula’s Grade 4 class and Mrs. Boyd-Stadelmann’s Grade 2 class filled the cases with Halloween displays.

On Wednesday, Oct. 21, Stettler Elementary School held its open house. The parents and students had the opportunity to wander through the school and classrooms. Students were able to show their parents how they use math manipulatives and other activities to learn the new math curriculum.

On Thursday, Oct. 22, the kindergarten classes had their annual fall festival. This included a getting to know you hot dog dinner, hayrides, face painting and lots of fun for the kindergarten children and their families. This event was sponsored by the local advisory committee, which is a group of kindergarten parents eager to enrich the kindergarten experience at Stettler Elementary.

Another group of parents, the home and school committee does a similar job for the rest of the students in the school. They participate in fundraising events throughout the school year in order to purchase extra things for the Stettler Elementary School children. This year, they are selling students’ union book packs. Each student who sold a book had their name entered in a draw for a gift certificate, and Taylor Roth from Mrs. Norman’s kindergarten class was this year’s winner.

In addition to the many clubs and extracurricular activities already offered to Stettler Elementary School students, The Spelling Club is new this year. Students in grades 4 and 5 can come once a week, learn new words and improve their spelling through games and spelling bees. The Canwest Canspell National Spelling Bee program provides the word lists for students to study. Students who participate have the chance to compete in bees at the grade level and the school level. The winner of the school level can go on to the regional spelling bee to win prizes and perhaps even on to the nationals.
