Stettler Elementary School News
Last Tuesday, KAD helped Mrs. Owens make a crock pot apple crisp. Students loved to smell the apples and prepare and measure all the ingredients. The classroom was filled with the aroma of fall as the apple crisp simmered in the crock-pot. We would like to thank Kian’s mom for being our chef for the morning.
Some of our Grade 3 and 5 classes have started swimming lessons this week. They have been having a lot of fun learning in the pool.
Thank you to everyone for participating in our Terry Fox Day on Friday, Sept. 26. We got a little bit wet, but had a great run. This is the 21st year that our school has participated in the Terry Fox Run. Thank you for bringing in your pledge sheets and thank you for donating to this wonderful cause. Congratulations to Illya Besyada, Megan Kirby, Dion Proudfoot, Aden Befus, Mason Tucker, Malcolm Roasting, Ethan Nichols, Julia Dietrich, Vienna Chapman, Sorin Shaffer, Brodie Pearson and Jason Kultgen who are our Terry Fox t-shirt winners.
Thank you to Stettler Elementary School and to the School Council for the t-shirt donations. Also a big thank you to Sobeys for donating juice and doughnuts for our snack on Terry Fox Run Day. Sobeys donated enough doughnuts and juice for all of our students and staff. Also, thank you to the teachers and staff that helped with pledge sheets and collecting pledges and making the Terry Fox Run, run smoothly. Over the next couple of weeks we will be finalizing the total amount of money raised and hopefully it will be at the $20,000 mark. Students have done an amazing job to help others. Also, if the total is over $20 000, Mrs. Fischer and Mrs. Syson will kiss a pig. Thank you to the Nooijen family for donating the pig. We will have an assembly that everyone is welcome to attend on Friday, Oct. 17 at 1:05 p.m. in the SES Gym. We will auction the pig at that time. The proceeds will go to our Leader in Me program. The classrooms have discussed Terry Fox and how he used the 7 Habits by putting first things first and beginning with the end in mind. When you are in the school, be sure to look at the “My Goal Is …” jugs that have been completed and posted in the halls of the school. Some of them are very interesting.
Cute quote of the week:
A pregnant teacher tells her class that she will be expecting her third girl … student raises his hand and says “Mrs. S, I think you are going to be broke!”
