Grade 3/4 class recently holds Pioneer School Day

Theresetta Catholic School students learn good habits

Grade 7 students

The Kinder Kids have been using the 7 Habits to help plan, prepare and serve a school-wide hot lunch on May 24. The kindergarten students stopped at Food Town to hand in their food order to the staff there. They even wrote up their orders all by themselves! The hot lunch they cooked and baked was delicious.

The Grade 3/4 class recently held a Pioneer School Day. Students completed math problems on slates, had a spelling bee and brought water from a “well” to the class. They even ate their lunches from a pail. They had so much fun, and Miss Loonen enjoyed the very well-behaved class. May 16 was Pitch-in Day. The whole school participated by splitting into groups and picking up garbage. The garbage bags were supplied by the town. The community looked a lot cleaner afterwards, and everyone enjoyed a cold treat, also donated by the town.

The Theresetta Knights badminton team had great success at the CWAJHAA tournament. The team went to Red Deer on May 8 and May 10. They had the most wins out of all of the schools the same size. Together, the team won more than 50 games.

Theresetta hosted the Grade 1-6 track and field meet on May 29. Students from Gus Wetter and Brownfield attended the annual event.

Field trips are quickly approaching for students at Theresetta.
