Students at Isabella Dicken Elementary School gathered together this morning to celebrate their accomplishments over the last month. The end of May assembly saw many students in all grades recognized for their hard work and recent achievements.

Lieutenant Tom Hopkins with the Fernie Fire Department presented Diego Grijalva and Daniel Hammer as the winners of a poster contest for burn awareness. Sandra Summerfield with the Fernie Heritage Library stopped by to congratulate Mac Piney, Leah Heavey, and Ella Hofer on their well-written projects for the Reading Club. Three Isabella Dicken students were praised for their art work that has been incorporated into the Arts Station’s Banner Project; Holly Stevens, Makenzy Pratt, and Justin Hula.

Keeping things upbeat, the Glee Club took to the stage to show off their singing and dancing. Following their performance, students, teachers, and parents in attendance gave a big round of applause to the 65 kids who represented IDES at the recent Kikomun Run.

After watching slide shows of some impressive grade six photography projects, the assembly wrapped up with everyone joining in for an enthusiastic rendition of the school song.
