Gus Wetter School students can pitch in with Operation Christmas Child

Volleyball season comes to an end in Castor school

Submitted by Gus Wetter School

October 28 the Alumni Tournament saw the men’s team, James Jammers and the women’s team, Campbell Crushers win the annual event. It was a great day seeing old alumni coming back for a day of fun.

The students of Gus Wetter were busy last week. The halls and classroom were filled with students dressed up in Halloween costumes. There were the traditional costumes of witches and vampires to princesses, monsters and puns. The elementary student entertained the residents at the extended care and the lodge with songs and poems. Each of the classrooms, the junior high and senior high held their parties in the afternoon with lots of games and food. On Nov. 1 the elementary had their Western Spirit Day.

Last week also saw the volleyball season come to an end for all the teams. The junior High teams were in Stettler on Saturday for the CARA tournament, where both the boys and girls placed third in their pool. The Senior High had their playoffs on Thursday night and lost out.

Report cards went out last Thursday and parent – teacher interviews were held this week. The Scholastic Book Fair is on this week in the library from Nov. 6-9. If you want to find some stocking stuffers or a good book to read come on down and check it out.

Operation Christmas Child is happening. Students can bring in items to put in a box or drop off a box with $7 to cover the cost of shipping. Boxes and items need to be at the school by Nov. 15. We have boxes available for anyone who wants to do a box. Just ask at the office.

November 10 was the school Remembrance Day Service at 10:45a.m. in the school gym.

Our Live Different group will be going to build a house next summer in Dominican Republic so are having a spaghetti supper and silent auction fundraiser on Thursday, November 23 from 5-8 p.m. at the school. They will be serving spaghetti and meat-sauce, caesar salad, garlic bread, ice cream (gluten and dairy free option available). Preschool are free, students are $5 and adults are $10. Please come out and support this worthy cause.
