Rimbey Elementary School’s teaching staff has some new faces on board this year.

Rimbey Elementary School’s teaching staff has some new faces on board this year.

Stephanie Voysey, who taught last year at Ponoka Elementary School, will teach Grade 1.

Darla Hohn, who will teach Grade 6 part-time, is returning from a year off and Christine Robertson is the new school/student liaison. Dawn Doll will teach in the Grade 3/4 classroom when Kathleen Robertson is coaching literacy.

Principal Jody Bramfield said numbers at the elementary school are also slightly down from last year when the school housed 362 students. She is, however, confident the school will see enrolment rise from the 350 students now registered.

“It changes daily,” she said.

Bramfield is pleased the school will also implement Chromebook this year for some classes in grades 4 and 6.

“It will free up the computer lab,” she said.

The school’s chili cook off will take place Sept. 13 at Pas Ka Poo Park from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Voting will take place and a trophy will be presented to the winning entry.

Anyone who is bringing chili should contact Bobbie Dudenhoeffer at 403-843-4249 by Sept. 12. Hotdogs and hamburgers will also be available.
