Stettler Middle School joined Stettler Elementary School in the Elementary gym for a Remembrance Day service on Nov. 10.

We were fortunate enough to have members from the Royal Canadian Legion, Stettler Branch join us at our service to make it memorable, as well as Stettler RCMP Constable Dave Yome.

Representing the middle school was master of ceremonies Taylor Chase and at the cenotaph were vice-principal, Mr. Jeff Lee and Autumn Woelk, and representing Stettler Elementary School at the cenotaph were Mr. Stefan Olafson and Kallie Stewart.

Our wreath layers were Axel Bergstrom and Paul Du Toit on behalf of SES and Cole Bailey and Nikki Vanderlee on behalf of SMS.

Reverend Mark Osborne gave the lesson and invocation and the benediction. We were also honoured to have Mr. Harvey Mitchell give a brief message from the Stettler Legion and Mrs. Rosalind LaRose, also a Legion member, read an unforgettable poem.

Our special guests were Clearview School Division Superintendant John Bailey and board members Peter Simon and Patty Dittrick.

Stettler Elementary School Show Choir performed “Song of Peace” directed by Miss Amanda Hugh and Mr. Eric Rahn’s Middle School Band performed “Black Is The Colour Of My True Love’s Hair”.

We were very proud of all of the students for making this a special occasion for our school.

Our Grade-5 students were busy picking up litter on the playground outside on Thursday. Thanks for pitching in!

We are getting ready to start a cup-stacking club, and think that Monday and Wednesday first recesses look clear for grade 4 and 5 students.

Stettler Elementary School is in the process of rebuilding our web site.

We will keep you informed as it when it will be up and running.
