Stettler Elementary School News
Our young cross country team had a lot of fun and was very successful in Wetaskiwin this Saturday. The cross-country team is made up of students from grades 2 to 5. Our elementary school did very well capturing the grade 2-3 boys division behind strong runs by Stefan Oprea (first) and Colby Frank (sixth). Stefan received a medal and both boys received a top 6 t-shirt.
The grade 2-3 girls also won their division with Caitlyn King being the top runner from our school in seventh place. The grade 4-5 boys had 60 plus competitors and our boys placed third overall with our grade 4-5 girls placing second with 64 plus runners. Gabby Heck was our top girl runner placing 10th and Carter Kranzler placed 20th. In the overall boys competition for the elementary, our boys won and our school placed second overall.
Our students did very well and the 7 Habits were displayed throughout the morning. A big thank you to the many parents that brought their kids to the race. Practices run during recess and all our mini athletes prepared very hard for this fun event. Thank-you Mrs. Poapst and Mrs. Limpert for all your work with this team. This week, all our students are working on habit number one, which is ‘Being Proactive’. In 1TJ, they made Proactive Me People to sit in their chairs during open house. Each child wrote a way they can be proactive. They also have been learning about patterns in math.
3KR is studying rocks and minerals. The students learned that igneous rocks come from volcanoes. The students enjoyed making their own “mini” volcano and “erupting” them. In Grade 2, the students are having lots of fun with magnets in science.
We would like to thank all our parents for coming out to our open house. It was wonderful to see everyone.
This week, we are gearing up for our Terry Fox run which is happening Friday, Sept. 26. All parents, grandparents, siblings are welcome to join us on the track around 1:25 pm. Remember if SES earns $20 000, Mrs. Fischer and Mrs. Syson will kiss a pig. Good luck with the fundraising.
We had a lot of fun opening our Grade 2 playground on Friday. All people who were involved were thanked and there was a ribbon cutting ceremony to follow. Our students love this new playground and it has been very exciting having this new space open for our students.
