It has been another busy month of engaging activities at Theresetta School.

The beginning of February ushered in a new semester which led to a change in our junior high options.

Students in Grades 7 – 9 have been given the opportunity to participate in cosmetology, hockey, philosophy and outdoor education/active living.

Mrs. Kneller and the elementary music classes were thrilled to receive the news that the Coronation Music Festival would once again take place.

Students have been fine tuning their singing voices, ukulele and recorder skills, bucket drumming beats, and rhythm instrument mastery.

Several students are also polishing up their poetry skills and melodic sounds are emanating from Mrs. Weber’s piano room.

With Valentine’s Day and Pink Shirt Day both occurring this month, students had plenty of opportunities to not only show off their bright colours, but to also focus on acts of kindness and caring.

Due to buses not operating on February 23 – the actual day set aside for wearing pink and drawing attention to the harmful effects of bullying – our school community chose to recognize it on Thurs. Feb. 24.

In addition to an array of shades of pink, students could be seen throughout the day gathered at the “Kindness” bulletin board, where they were welcome to write positive messages of goodwill and compassion.

There has been no shortage of athletic opportunities, as basketball, curling and ski trips have kept students in great shape.

The elementary students were blessed with beautiful weather for their ski trip to Alliance on Fri. Feb. 25.

The junior highs hope to be as lucky when they take to the slopes at Lake Louise from March 6 – 8.
