To start off this week’s article, we would like to say a special thank you to Buffy Hushagen, Lesa Miller and Donna Morris for their help with our Subway Hot Lunch in March. We also would like to thank the Warden Ladies for donating to the breakfast program and to ATCO Electric for donating two microwaves for students to use during lunchtime.
There will be no school for staff and students from April 18 – 21 for the Easter long weekend, and no school for the students on April 22 while teachers participate in a PD day.
Report cards come home tomorrow before the students leave for their long weekend. Parent-teacher interviews will be next Thursday, April 24 from 3:40 to 6 p.m. Parents are asked to contact the school to pre-arrange interviews.
Last Wednesday, the Grade 8 students got a presentation from Mrs. Enyedy on registering for Grade 9 in the high school. The students got information needed to make decisions about their options and classes for next year. Then they watched a video made by the high school staff and students introducing all the different classes and options available as well as introducing them to the teachers who teach them. The grade eight students were very excited after attending this presentation.
A reminder that all Grade 9 registration forms for Wm. E. Hay High School are due into the middle school by tomorrow.
Stettler Middle School has been lucky enough to have a student teacher from the University of Alberta in these past few weeks.
We recently interviewed Miss Younghans about her experiences interacting with teachers and students here in SMS. Miss Younghans loved teaching the kids and getting to know everyone while she was here. She taught P.E. to some of the Grade 6s and Grade 8s, social studies to a couple of Grade 6 classes and a Grade 8 class, and C.I.A. to a Grade 7 group.
Her first impression of the middle school was how everyone here was so friendly and the students were easy to talk to and get to know. She would like to teach P.E. or social studies, but would be excited to teach anything except math.
Miss Younghans will miss interacting with everyone here at SMS, especially getting to say “good morning” at the start of the day and “goodbye” at the end of day. She enjoyed being a part of the students’ everyday lives and hopes that she made the most of the time here at Stettler Middle School.
We think she did for sure. Good luck in your future career of teaching, Miss Younghans!
