This week was teacher appreciation week, and the school council treated the Stettler Elementary School teachers to a fabulous lunch.

This week was teacher appreciation week, and the school council treated the Stettler Elementary School teachers to a fabulous lunch.

They also brought in muffins and fruit for the teachers to enjoy in the mornings and covered supervision so the staff could all eat together.

We at SES would like to send a huge thank-you to the school council for all of the group’s hard work throughout the year and for the special treats all this week.

We have a wonderful council.

On Valentine’s Day last Thursday, almost the whole school was dressed in red and pink in honour of the special day. Many classes had valentine’s parties and we all enjoyed lots of treats. Thanks to all the parents who brought treats in for the various parties.

Last Tuesday, the kindergarten program had its annual family Valentine’s Day dance. It was a lot of fun and the teachers showed some of their best moves, including the twist, the limbo, and the Macarena.

The K team would like to thank everyone who helped set up, clean up and make the bookings. Also, a special thanks to Mr. Barry Hill, who was a fantastic DJ, complete with a bubble-blowing machine.

On Wednesday, we had our kickoff to the snack program here at Stettler Elementary School. It was sponsored by Breakfast for Learning Canada. All staff and students enjoyed a yogurt and fruit parfait that was delivered to their rooms by our Grade 5 helpers.

It’s going to be a great addition to our school. Thanks to Penny for all her hard work in getting the program launched.

The 1MS students have started their unit on building. The kids made some awesome furniture for their rubber ducks, out of recycled materials.

The 1MS class also celebrated 100 days of school by making portraits of what the students thought they would look like when they are 100. These portraits are lining our hallways, looking somewhat like a museum.

All Grade 1 students have been learning how to be “bucket fillers.” The students have started using the vocabulary when working out problems.

The KDB students turned themselves into giant hearts by making and decorating heart vests. Last Friday, Feb. 15, was the 100th day of school for the KKT and KDB classes. They have been celebrating and singing 100-day songs.

CUTE QUOTE OF THE WEEK: A little girl said to me the other day, “My dad is taking me fishing this weekend.” I said, “Oh fun, where?” She replied, “At the Stettler swimming pool!”
