Hi! My name is Georgia Shaver and I’m so excited to be writing this column. Horse Lake Elementary School (HLES) has been extremely busy in the past three months.

This is what they’ve been up to…

On Oct. 31, the Grade 6/7 students of Mike Davidson’s class were busy. In the morning, his student went around to each class to see who was wearing a Halloween costume. If they were wearing a costume, they would get a candy and be part of a class picture.

At lunch, participating students got together in the gym and had a costume parade with prizes. After the parade was done, there was a dance for the rest of lunch break and extending a bit into the afternoon. After lunch starting with the kindergarteners, they started gathering classes and guided them through the haunted house, five at a time.

A couple of weeks ago, Grade 6/7 students were training hard and practising their skills for the upcoming volleyball tournaments.

On Nov. 25, the Grade 7s went to their volleyball tournament a Mile 108 Elementary School and competed with them and 100 Mile Elementary School (100 Mile). Mile 108 took first place with HLES in second and 100 Mile in third place.

On Dec. 26, the Grade 6s had their tournament. Mile108 took first place, while 100 Mile finished second, and third went to HLES.

Today (Dec. 18), HLES will be having a Christmas concert. Classes will be coming up to perform songs and other stuff they have been practising. There will be a dress rehearsal at 12:30 p.m. that you are welcome to attend. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. for the evening concert, and you will have time to do the raffle baskets before the concert begins at 7 p.m., as well as donate items to the Food Bank.

There was a Christmas store at the school from Dec. 8 to 12. The PAC bought a great selection of presents with a price range of $1 to $10. Several wrappers wrapped and delivered presents by the end of the day.

HLES is currently having a food drive. If you do decide to donate, please bring non-perishable food items – canned soup and beans, powdered drinks, condensed veggies, etc. Any donations are appreciated.
