SES students to participate in ‘100 Days’

Last week our students were able to take part in a couple of different presentations at the school.

STETTLER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL — Last week our students were able to take part in a couple of different presentations at the school. Each class had the opportunity to learn about Farm Safety in an interesting and thought provoking presentation. Lori Blake travelled to the school from Monday to Thursday to ensure that all students would have a chance to learn from her presentations. Our Grade 6 students have also begun their Drug and Alcohol Resistance Education (DARE) program. Constable Jon McNickle visits each of our Grade 6 classes on a weekly basis to offer this program to our students. Students have an opportunity to learn a great deal from DARE and the classes will continue for a 10-week period.

This past Thursday, Feb. 9, saw our grades 4-6 students take part in their final school ski day for the 2017 season. The students learned a great deal from their lessons and from their time on the ski hill. I know many of them are already looking forward to skiing next year. Thank you again to Mr. Lee and Mrs. Ternes for all of their work in organizing these ski dates for our students.

Friday, Feb. 10 was a very busy day at Stettler Elementary School. Our School Spirit team organized “Fancy Day”, which saw many students and staff members dressed in their very finest. It was a real treat to see so many ladies in dresses and gentlemen sporting their best ties. It was a great day, and lots of fun as well. Also on that day, many of our younger students participated in “100 Days.” We had students in grades K-2 who each brought in 100 items, and the teachers spent the day doing math lessons using the various items that were brought in. Although there were many great ideas sported on that day, Mrs. Thorne was particularly tickled by Elijah’s shirt with 100 bugs on it. The shirt read, “We’ve bugged Mrs. Thorne and Mrs. Nichols for 100 Days.” It was indeed very creative and very cute.

Students were also able to participate in the School Council Hot Lunch on Friday, and many students reported that the Bacon Chicken Wraps, cookies, and juice boxes were all delicious. Again we thank the many parents who work hard to ensure that our students have regular and scrumptious hot lunch opportunities. Friday was also the last day to have Camp McE forms in, but I am confident that if you hurry you can still get in on this amazing mini basketball program. Camp McE will be taking place over two weekends this year April 20, 21, 22 and April 27, 28, and 29, so be sure to get registered if you have not yet done so. This mini basketball program is open to all students in grades 2-6.

On Monday, Feb. 13, we held our February School Council Meeting and had a pretty good turn out of parents. As always there was some good discussion, but this month we were able to update parents on the MakerSpace area in the school and we had four Grade 5 students attend the meeting to share some of the neat and creative building activities that will be housed in that space. I was also able to share some information with parents about the survey that was sent to all parents regarding communication between school and home. Our next School Council Meeting is scheduled at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 13, and all parents are invited to attend.
