Well done elementary students

Stettler Elementary School had a Terry Fox windup assembly on Oct. 9. Stettler Elementary School students raised an impressive total of $20,052.70 for the Terry Fox Foundation. Thank you students for your great efforts for this fundraiser and a big thank you to the parents and community for making this so successful.

At our assembly, we were fortunate enough to have a special guest speaker Matt Bendoritis. Matt is a cancer survivor and had the same type of cancer as Terry Fox. Students were once again impressed with the message that Matt gave to them, and interested to see the prosthetic legs that Matt brought to show them. Mrs. Yaremcio has arranged Matt’s visit to our school and it is appreciated.

SES would like to thank the Elementary Home and School for donating Terry Fox t-shirts for our t-shirt draw and for donating the proceeds of September hot lunch to the Terry Fox Foundation.

The kindergarten classes were treated to a tour of the fire hall. Deputy fire chief Etienne Brugman and firefighter Mike demonstrated the hazard house and warned students of potential dangers that could be in their own homes.

The Kindergarteners were able to see the fire trucks first hand. Students were impressed with the demonstration and learned what to do in case of fire.

Stettler Elementary School is holding its open house and meet the teacher night on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 6:30 p.m. in the Elementary School gym. All parents are welcome to attend, come and get to know their child’s teachers.

Teachers will also be holding an information session on the new math curriculum in their classrooms following introductions. Hope to see you there.
