Gus Wetter school year winding down

busy with field trips, finishing classes and exams

The last two weeks of May were busy for Gus Wetter (GW). It started with the Grade 12 Prom on May 25. The Grade 12 class theme was Small Town Big Dreams. The class paraded at the Lodge, Theresetta School, Extended Care and Gus Wetter School. The students looked fantastic in their grad attire, with a variety of styles and colors of dresses and suits. The evening started with a banquet at the hall, followed with the exercises and grand march at the school. Prom students, Jezlyn Van Oers entertained us with a ballet piece and Tiara vanZandbergen with an original musical piece on the piano. The guest speaker this year was Luke Peters, GWS High School social teacher.

Our high school track team of Hunter Baldwin, Brennan Grice, Devon Johnson, Bailey Musgrove and Hope Wiart competed well in each of their events at zones. Devon Johnson went on to provincials in all four of her events, 100m, 200m, triple jump and long jump. On May 31 GWS students held a pep rally to send her off to provincials in Red Deer on June 1-2. Devon received silver in the 200m and placed ninth in triple jump, eighth in long jump and sixth in 100m. Devon did extremely well as there was stiff competition at provincials.

On May 29 the elementary students competed in their track meet with Theresetta School hosting. It started out a cool and damp day, but everyone got through all the events and back to the school before the rain decided to come. Congratulations to all of students who competed and to those who won trophies.

On May 30 the kindergarten class went to Safety City in Red Deer, where they learned about being safe. They drove vehicles and learned to be safe pedestrians.

We ended the week with a movie night to raise money for Huntingtons. Although we couldn’t watch the movie outside because it was too wet, we had an “incredible” night in the gym. Connor Rossing in his tuxedo greeted everyone at the front door and our bellhops Chloe Wetter and Elise Duncan handed out glow sticks, while our junior high student volunteers handed out popcorn and pop. Bentley Towers won the door prize. We appreciate everyone who made this evening possible: Anthony Holland, Mrs. Dunkle and Carlos, all those who donated popcorn and glow sticks and our staff and students who put in time to make this possible.

The year is winding down but is busy with field trips, finishing classes and exams.
