On Friday Oct. 24, all four Kindergarten classes will be having a fire safety presentation. The fire fighters will be here to give a tour to our students through the fire truck and learn about fire safety. The kids are very much looking forward to this.

SES would like to welcome Miss. Jessie Hampton to our school. She is a first year teacher who will be filling in for Mrs. Lynn while she is on a short medical leave. Mrs. Hampton comes to us from the University of Lethbridge and was spoken very highly of by all of her references. We are looking forward to having her here for three months. We wish Mrs. Lynn a speedy recovery.

On Friday Oct. 17, our school had our first monthly assembly. We celebrated all of the great things that have been happening so far at our school. Some of the highlights were celebrating our cross country runners, recognizing all of our leaders of the week with certificates, doing a draw for 13 free helmets donated by Canadian Tire and, of course, the kissing of the pig.

SES students raised an amazing $15 051.95 for the Terry Fox Run this year. Although they missed the $20 000 goal, we were so proud of their efforts, Mrs. Fischer and myself still kissed the pig. He was five weeks old and very stinky, but also very cute. We then held an auction and the pig went for $210 to Mrs. Hunter. All the proceeds of the auction are going towards supporting our ‘Leader In Me’ program. Thanks so much to our volunteer auctioneer, Scott Douglas, our mayor Mr. Richards who helped out with our festivities, also Mr. Barron, Superintendent of Clearview who joined us, as well to the Nooyen family for donating the pig and of course to Mrs. Hunter for buying the pig. It was a fun filled afternoon.
