Floor curling takes place tomorrow at 1 p.m, so come on down and join in the fun.

Updated from the school, in the next couple of weeks, the students will be skating on Monday’s and Wednesday’s at the arena. This started on February 5 with the Grade 5/6 class followed by the 3/2/4 class ending these days with the K and 1/2 class ending the days off. The skating dates were February 5,7,12, so hopefully everyone had fun with these.

Also for the next couple of weeks the Botha will host Jimmy the Janitor on March 16Grade 5/6 class will be heading to the SES on Mondays to participate in some three on three basketball as a warm up before they start scheduling games with other schools.

On Wednesday 21, all the students will be heading to their annual Alliance ski trip. Unfortunately this year they were only allowed to book one trip. So on March 1, they will be heading to Canyon Resort in Red Deer for a fun filled day of tubing.If any parent has time and would like to volunteer their time to help out on these trip, this would very much be appreciate.

On February 28, will be their annual Hockey Day in Botha. They are asking everyone to join in the fun. They will also have a free hot dog lunch (all are welcome, as well as a lot of hockey related learning and activities including an ice skill competition with the members of the Stettler Lightning,) so come on out and enjoy the activities

On the 28th will be the pink shirt day, which means taking a stand against bullying. This year they have Botha School pink shirts for all students to wear that day.

This month challenge will be a balloon powered dragster to make.The bracelet style race-off with the students racing their dragsters down a flat, 20 foot track. The first dragster to cross the line moves on. The only restrictions are as follows: The car must be longer than 12 inches long, has to have three wheels and must be propelled by a rubber balloon (which can be any one balloon of any size and shape).So have fun everyone on this challenge, the deadlines for this month challenge will be February 28 at 10 a.m.

There has been a mistake in the paper Jimmy the Janitor was announced for Valentines day, but instead it will be held at the Botha Hall on March 16, so grab your tickets quickly before they are all gone. Purchased them at Well’s Furniture or contact Megan at 403-3097, Tamara at 403-741-8282 or Marsh’s at 403-740-3178. For more contact or to buy tickets.
