Bentley students entertain

Bentley school play in honor of memory of Joslyn Snow

On the evening of Friday, December 15 a very special event took place in the little town of Bentley.

Children, parents, grandparents, great grandparents, community and school staff came together, as one, to celebrate Christmas, in song and dance, in their beautifully decorated venue. The Bentley Elementary / Junior High School students presented “Snow – Winter Wonderland” in honor of the memory of their Miss Joslyn Snow.

With the recent retirement of the schools’ fine arts teacher, this year’s production became a true team effort, with all staff pitching in to create such a memorable event. The production was brilliant in its simplicity, serenity and spirit. The students looked and sounded amazing and the dance number and songs were perfect.

A great crowd came to share this special and memorable evening. High praise needs to go to Bentley School students and staff for rising to the challenge – in style, as always. It was amazing!

Following the performance, the annual Christmas Raffle Baskets were drawn and announced; the live auction of the Staff Basket, containing items that were “All Things Jos”, was held; and the draw for the signed Connor McDavid print (donated by United Cycle Source for Sports, in Edmonton) took place.

Students, staff and parents provided many generous donations to the annual “Bentley School Gives Back” programs, which include “Gifts for Grandparents” (gifts are delivered to Bentley’s three seniors’ facilities) and “Families in Need” (gift cards and certificates are purchased and delivered to families in our local community). The annual “Winter Classic Staff/Student Hockey Game” is another fundraiser with proceeds from admission, raffles and 50/50 also going to “Families in Need”.

Because of their giving spirit, during the Christmas season, Bentley School and community are able to bring cheer to many people in the community.

Students and staff at Bentley School wish Merry Christmas and a Happy, Joyous New Year to one and all.
