The Grade 7/8 science class made egg drop cases. They used straws and tape to protect the egg from a two-metre fall. The lightest cases that protected the egg well won the challenge. There were many unique designs and the students had fun as they learned about engineering and pressure.
Several junior high students from the Wellness Club went to Wainwright on May 3. They met up with students from our school division to talk about growth mindsets. They had an amazing day and are looking forward to sharing what they learned with the rest of the school.
May 2, was the CARA badminton tournament in Stettler. The Theresetta students did very well. Twelve Theresetta teams will represent our school at CWAJHAA. CWAJHAA is our regional tournament, including larger centers like Red Deer, Ponoka, Innisfail, Rocky Mountain House and Lacombe. Out of fourteen categories, 12 Theresetta players or teams are going to CWAJHAA hosted by St. Francis of Assisi School in Red Deer on May 8 and 10.
Theresetta also had a Junior ATB day at the school on May 3. There were 14 customers. A $25 Indigo gift card was awarded to Grade 8 student Ashley Renschler in a draw.
Many of the elementary kids are playing baseball on the new backstop by the school. It is beautiful out and the kids are enjoying their recesses a whole bunch. The beautiful weather is an awesome blessing from God as spring signs are all around us.
Theresetta also presented a cheque to the Live Different group last week. We had coin wars during the Lent season as a fundraiser. A donation of over $800 to the Live Different group was made. The Live Different group is made up of Gus Wetter High School students, parents, and teachers; the group will travel to the Dominican Republic in July to construct a home for a family in need.
The kindergarteners picked up garbage in Pals Park and on the school grounds as part of their Earth Day celebrations. They are using the seven habits to plan a hot lunch, too. The lunch will be on May 24. They also are learning their nursery rhymes and have been acting out some of them outside.
Theresetta religion Grade 7, 8, and 9 students continue to visit long-term care. Students and residents enjoy visiting while working on an arts and craft project.
Theresetta is excited to host the Elementary Track and Field Meet on May 29.
