The Stettler Elementary School Terry Fox Run was held on Friday, Sept. 25, and it was once again a great success. It was a little bit windy, but otherwise we could not have asked for better weather for this event. We were thrilled that so many parents, grandparents and younger siblings we able to join us for this, the 35th anniversary of the Terry Fox Run in Canada.
The staff, students, and families ran or walked around the track during the afternoon and again we would like to thank the moms and dads for participating with the little siblings. It is such a special feeling to have so very many people participate in this very worthwhile event. We would also like to thank the members in our community for their continued annual support for the Terry Fox Foundation when our students were out in the community collecting pledges. As well, we extend a very special thank you to our school council for donating t-shirts for our Terry Fox t-shirt draw, and for everything that they do throughout the year. The lucky winners were Angelo Manallili, Bogdana Dikova, Harmonee Leggo, Tristin Rempe, Aivee Leard, Damion Hollett and Ty Diegel.
Other “thank you”s this week go out to the Heart Haven Residence Club for their very generous donation made to our breakfast for learning program. We sincerely appreciate that these residents have chosen to support our students and help to ensure that their best learning can occur through having full stomachs in the morning. I know that our students appreciate it as well. We are so fortunate that have such awesome community support, and we do not want to neglect all of the groups or individuals who support us in so many ways throughout the year.
Also, on the topic of community support, please be sure to get your tickets for the upcoming CFCW Critter’s Hockey Game. Most of the office staff from SES will be participating in the game on Oct. 8, and we are looking forward to a victory against the CFCW team. Our school council has put a great deal of work into the organization of this event, and we are looking forward to a fun-filled evening with lots of activities for all age groups to take part in. We are still looking for some sponsorship for this game, as well if you know of a business that would like to advertise in the program for that evening, please contact the school or one of our parents from the school council. We are very excited to be able to take part in the charity event, and I, for one, can’t wait to lace up my skates again for the first time in a very long time.
We are looking forward to seeing you there.
