“Something Cool After School” is holding its last class before Christmas break on Dec 14.

The school now has a great sound system, thanks to the parent council, and will be hosting their first drama night in the gym on Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. The sound system will also get good use on Dec. 20 for the Elementary School Christmas concert at 7 p.m. Don’t forget to bring your two dozen baked goods to be sold after the concert.

Dec. 21, it’s the last day of school before Christmas. Dec. 21 is also get out of bed and wear your pajamas to school. Pack up your swimming suit, towel and goggles and mom doesn’t have to make lunch for you because it’s hot lunch day too. The last day of school sounds like it could be lots of fun.

If you are looking for something active to do during the holidays Erskine is hosting a mixed bonspiel on Dec. 28 and 29. If you would like to enter your team call the Erskine curling rink and leave a message. The bonspiel will end off with a banquet on the Dec. 29.

Birthday wishes goes out to Tara Heintz Dec. 12, Cole Nichols Dec. 13, Sandra Steele Dec. 14, Logan Wilson Dec. 15, and Ty Neitz Dec. 17.
