The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to Stettler Elementary School.

The fair will be located in the school library between 6 and 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21, and Thursday, Nov. 22 (during parent-teacher interviews).

Everyone is welcome to attend the book fair.

Make a point of dropping by the book fair while you are in the school for parent-teacher Interviews. Students from kindergarten to Grade 5 will make a visit to the book fair with their class.

A notice will be sent home advising you of the date and time. Feel free to attend the book fair with your children to help them choose just the right book.

Draw slips for the grand prize draw ($25 spending for one student and $25 spending for their teacher) can only be submitted by visiting the book fair on Wednesday or Thursday evening.

Choose from hundreds of books, as well as a variety of pencils, erasers, bookmarks and novelty items. (Have your Christmas list in hand!)

Most books will be priced in the $5 to $15 range, though some hardcover and novelty books are available in the $20-plus range.

Each book with a list price of more than $3 will receive a dollar off. (Discount does not apply to non-book items.)

Intramurals are starting up in November for grades 4 and 5 during recess. We also have a new blog and Twitter for parents to follow the PE department.

We invite parents to check it out and use some of our at-home activity ideas. Twitter: @SES71PEBlog: sesphysed.tumblr.com

Students are advised to listen for announcements for further details on the start-up of intramurals.

On Oct. 25, Mrs. Fox’s Grade 5 class was fortunate to have a visit from Mrs. Enyedy’s class from William E. Hay Composite High School.

As part of Project Week, students from the healthcare aide option class put together six interactive stations that introduced our Grade 5 students to various body systems. Students learned about the heart and circulatory system, brain and nervous system, human anatomy, healthy eating, and active living.

High school students who are enrolled in that course will graduate with a health-care aide certificate from Red Deer College in June 2013.

It proved to be a great collaborative learning activity for both groups of students.

Thank you for coming, Mrs. Enyedy!

All SES students and staff dressed up in some amazing costumes for Halloween. Treats and activities were enjoyed by all throughout the day.
