Students show talent, style at their Christmas concerts

A week ago Tuesday, the 1KL and 1TJ classes from Stettler Elementary School participated in the Kids and Conversation program.

A week ago Tuesday, the 1KL and 1TJ classes from Stettler Elementary School participated in the Kids and Conversation program.

Forty Grade 1 students went to the Pine Ridge and the Heritage House lodges and the hospital to sing Christmas carols to the seniors.

The students were very fortunate to have Ms. Mappin (and her guitar) join them.

They enjoyed sharing the gift of music during this holiday season and fun was had by all. Thanks goes out to Ms. Mappin for leading the students and to the hospital staff for allowing the students to experience such as great opportunity.

Thanks also to Mrs. Kirby for all of your hard work to showcase our students’ talents at the concerts.

Thanks to Mrs. Boyd-Stadelmann for helping students with their speaking parts and to Mrs. Pinder and Mrs. Johnson for all of their behind-the-scenes hard work.

On Wednesday night, our kindergarten students performed their Christmas concert to another full house in the Stettler Performing Arts Centre.

The students did their rendition of various Christmas carols, including a crowd favourite, “That’s What It’s All About.”

The girls looked beautiful in their little dresses and the boys were so handsome in their dress-up clothes. The students always enjoy the Disco Ball at the end.

Thanks is extended to Mrs. Norman, Mrs. Boyd, Mrs. du Toit, Mrs. Bruketa and Mrs. Thorne for always making the Christmas concert a night to remember.

Also, thanks to Mrs. Smith for filling in and to Mrs. Johnson for always lending a helping hand.

We’re looking forward to the grades 1 and 2 concerts that will be happening at the PAC this Wednesday and Thursday.

Cute quote of the week: A teacher is talking to her class about using sign language for people who cannot hear. She asks her class, “Do you know what the word is that we use when somebody cannot hear?”

“Old,” answers one of the students.

Ah … kids say the darndest things!
