Mrs. McGravey’s grade 1/2 class came out the winner with their ‘Happy Feet’ creation. Paper penguins were glued on the door under a “Happy Feet Happen When” decoration that had attached sayings from the students such as, “I give a Christmas present to my brother”, “The kids get their special Christmas ornament for the year”, “I have a snowmobile fight with my sister”, “I go for a sleigh ride”, “I bake cookies for Santa”, and more.

It was a ‘Winter Wonderland’ at Barriere Elementary

Students at Barriere Elementary School were super busy before their Christmas break decorating classroom doors in a common ‘Winter Wonderland’ theme in hopes of a white Christmas. Each door was judged on theme, work ethic, and creativity. Mrs. McGravey’s grade 1/2 class came out on top with their ‘Happy Feet’ creation. The school also gave a special thanks to the judges; Fire Chief Ashley Wohlgemuth, Mayor Ward Stamer, RCMP Constable Deboersap and Constable Wallbank.
