Students rewarded with their bountiful fall harvest

In May, our gardening group ventured over to Stettler Community Gardens to plant a variety of veggies and flowers.

In May, our gardening group ventured over to Stettler Community Gardens to plant a variety of veggies and flowers.

We continued to weed and water through the summer months, hoping our plot would flourish. The students got wet, and hands got really dirty!

At harvest, they were in for a surprise, as each student lugged their vegetables in big recycling bags, not realizing how heavy they would be. Great job, Stettler Elementary School.

Lots of exciting things are happening in our Grade 1 classrooms. For example, 1TJ has been busy learning about seasonal changes in science. We made beautiful leaf animals in art, and in health we have started learning about healthy foods.

The Grade 4/5 Book Club will start up on the Wednesday following Thanksgiving. We are planning lots of exciting activities for this year, so we encourage any grades 4 and 5 students who would like to be reading ambassadors in our school to come out for that.

Computer Club for grades 4 and 5 students will also commence the week following Thanksgiving. Keep your ears and eyes open for announcements on where to meet.

Home Reading at Home (H-RAH)

Times are a changing! Even the way we teach reading to children has changed some since you were a child, or maybe even since your last child was learning to read.

All the Grade 1 teachers are asking parents to come, as we go through some procedures to help make home reading more enjoyable for everyone.

Mrs. Pinder is also going to be sharing a story for the children that night, so we’re inviting students also.

Please make it a priority to come out to our parent session on Oct. 16 at 6:30 p.m., as we go through “home reading at home (H-RAH).”

Trust me — you will be glad you came. Home reading is one thing your child will be required to do all her/his elementary school years.

Let us give you some helpful tools.

Again, a reminder that this is for Grade 1 parents only. Thank-you in advance for your support.
