Health Champion June St. Goddard shared that many exciting things happened at Entwistle School over the cold winter months. In January and February Kindergarten to Grade 5 went skating a number of time at the Evansburg arena. Entwistle had around 12 different parents volunteer and help to tie skates. Each skater was provided with a bottled water and a granola snack. Parents and the community members really enjoyed the event. More importantly, students were very grateful for the opportunity to get out and enjoy the rink as some had never skated before. As a result of this activity, one grandparent of a Grade four student decided to start up a skating program again for next season because of the expressed interest of the kids and parents. “We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome,” says Ms. Goddard.
In addition to skating, Lacrosse was an important part of Entwistle’s winter season. Nearly 32 students practiced for the Edmonton Rush’s game against Minnesota in February. Over 100 game tickets were purchased by family and community members. Thanks to teacher and performing arts club director Tara Burvill who organized this exciting performance, the students were able to show off their talents and share their school pride with the entire Edmonton Rush audience.
