Have you met our amazing Mrs. Mellings? She truly is the best custodian ever! She is also a wonderful person with a heart of gold. Thank you Mrs. Mellings for keeping our school so clean! We celebrated National Custodian Appreciation day and surprised her with a shout out to her on 93.1 the One radio station, a standing ovation, lots of hugs and her very own Golden Garbage Can Award filled with treats! Hope your day was fabulous!

The staff and students enjoyed a beautiful fall day for the school's annual Terry Fox Run on Friday, September 27. Mrs. Giles led the run this year and we had four students run the whole way with her!!! Over 5 km at this age is no small feat! Our younger students enjoyed a shorter path and we all came together in the end to enjoy a hot dog and a water that was donated by the Lions Club. Thank you once again to the Leduc Lions Club for sponsoring us for this annual event.
We appreciate all the parent volunteers and the donations that will go towards Cancer Research. As always, a great day, for a great cause. Thank you Mrs. Dukeshire for organizing such a fabulous event.

We are very pleased and excited to announce that we have hired another grade one teacher. Students and both teachers will take next week to get to know each other and classes will be divided at the end of next week (Sept. 27). Parents in those classes will receive a letter to know which room their child will be in. Thank you for your patience as we work through this period of growth! :) Welcome Mr. Aasen (rhymes with awesome) to our East Elementary family!!

We had a great surprise for Friday's assembly . . . One of our student's Grandpa came to talk about cycling. Jack Almond is a competitor at the Seniors Masters level and just competed in Italy over the summer. The student enjoyed hearing about an activity that could literally be a life long skill. Lots of questions were asked and then they all had to have a chance to touch or lift the bike. Thank you Jack for a great impromptu presentation!
