Spaghetti supper event raises $6,400 at Gus Wetter School

Christmas extravaganza will support Castor Museum

Submitted by Gus Wetter School

Our Live Different group had a very successful spaghetti supper and silent auction on Nov. 23. They served about 300 people and raised about $6,400. Thank you to all of those who donated food or prize items for this event, and those who came out and ate or bid on the silent auction items.

Basketball has started. The senior high boys were at a 16 team tournament in Daysland on Dec.1 and 2. The teams were very competitive. The boys played well , but lost out. This past weekend, our senior girls were at Forestburg. They made it to the finals, but lost to OLMP. Our junior girls were at Hughenden this weekend. They, too, made it to the finals, but lost to Macklin.

Elementary are busy working on their pieces for the Christmas Concert on Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. We are continuing our Christmas Extravaganza with the dessert raffle and cookie walk. Instead of the gingerbread house auction this year, we are going to have a silent auction of handcrafted items by our students.

The money raised this year from the extravaganza is going to the Castor Museum.

On Friday, the Kindergarten and Grade 1 students made suet and birdseed pinecones for our feathered friends. They then hung theses ornaments on the trees around the school yard. They are in the Christmas spirit of giving!!

On Tuesday Dec. 5 the Grades 9-12 students went to the Citadel Theatre to watch Dickinson’s A Christmas Carol. The performance was enjoyed by everyone.

Thanks to Friends of Gus Wetter, our students were able to take in this classic performance.
