Second weekend of Camp McE starts today

The report from the students was that they had a fabulous time last weekend and they are looking forward to the second weekend.

STETTLER ELEMENTARY NEWS — The music festival kept Stettler Elementary School very busy last week. All of our students in grades 1-4 performed musical numbers with their classes.

We would like to recognize Mrs. Kirby and Mrs. Lynes for the work they put into these performances. As well we had 60 students involved in choral speech performances under the direction of Mrs. Boyd-Stadelmann. Mrs. Boyd-Stadelmann spent many, many recesses working with these students and the quality of the performances demonstrated that this work paid off.

She also worked with her Grade 2 students and they were entered in the festival as well. These young performers did amazingly well and were invited to perform at a provincial level. Almost all of the groups and individuals who performed at the festival received top marks for their work. The show choir, also directed by Mrs. Kirby, was awarded with Honours for their performance. We are very, very proud of all of our students and commend them for their behaviour as well as for their performances.

From Thursday, April 20 through Saturday, April 22 approximately 90 of our students participated in Camp McE. Students in grades 2-6, who registered for this program, had the opportunity to work with Mrs. Poapst and her coaches to acquire basketball knowledge and skills. The report from the students was that they had a fabulous time and they are looking forward to the second weekend of Camp McE this Thursday through Saturday, April 27 to 29.

Other fun and excitement in the school included Rainbow Day and Subway hot lunch on Friday, April 21. The students always enjoy having a treat from Subway, and it was even more exciting dressed in a multitude of colours. On Tuesday, April 25, our students in grades 1-4 were able to take part in the Festival Highlights Concert in our gym. This gave all performers a chance to see what other classes performed at the festival. As well, we are excited to see how well our grade 5 and 6 band students perform at festival on Wednesday, April 26 this week. Also on Wednesday, we have Shaun Booth travelling to our school for a cultural performance for our students. He is a Canadian rapper who has an “Everyday Heroes” message. Through song he will show us that we all have a hero within. We are looking forward to this performance and are confident that his message will enhance the leadership program that we have in our school.
