Students ride in classic style

Mrs. Poapst and Ms. Mappin have been taking our kids outside for physical education to enjoy the awesome weather.

Mrs. Poapst and Ms. Mappin have been taking our kids outside for physical education to enjoy the awesome weather. They have played a lot of “kick-the-can” and other wonderful fun recess-type games.

Our phys-ed teachers are encouraging moms and dads to play these games at home with their kids.

Also, it’s a good idea for kids to put on sunscreen before school or bring some to school, as well as wear hats, because they’ll be exposed to UV during recess and possibly in PE.

Malcolm Fischer visited Mrs. Sylvester’s Grade 1 class to talk about his antique 1938 Buick. The students eagerly looked at pictures, asked questions, and shared their own stories with Mr. Fischer.

After the discussion, with the students eagerly anticipating a look, Mr. Fischer showed the students his antique car. The students were allowed to recline in the fancy back seat or sit right up front and pretend to cruise.

“Wow! No seatbelts.”

The students are learning about changes from the past. What a great example. Thanks, Mr. Fischer.

Congratulations to SES. We were the school who brought in the most pull-tabs for the Ronald McDonald House Pull Together program, with a whopping 265.16 pounds of tabs!

That comes out to about half a pound per student collected over the past year. Overall, about one million tabs were collected to help support the Ronald McDonald House in Red Deer, which will go a long way to helping them continue to provide the families of sick kids in our community with opportunities to stay closer to them.

We will continue to collect pull-tabs for the 2013-14 Pull Together campaign, so keep pulling those tabs and sending them to school with your child, starting again in September.

Mrs. du Toit’s kindergarten students are the proud owners of two zebra finches. They are a mommy and a daddy. We named them Sam and Pam, so we could write rhymes about them. Sadly, Sam escaped two weeks ago and when he was recaptured, his wing got injured badly.

But with lots of love and medicine and even kids singing to him, we nursed him back to health. So we decided to give him a new name. His name is now Terry (like Terry Fox) because he taught us to keep on trying and to never give up. His wife is now called Sherry.

We just love this happy story and thought we would like to share it with everyone.
