As the green begins to emerge, Medstead moves into the full throes of the spring season. A short week marked the beginning of Easter break, with school returning to session on April 29. With the coming of the warmer seasons, a number of community events draw nearer.
A number of school run events from track and field to the arts are forthcoming. Quickly after the end of Easter break comes back-to-back events on May 2. Kindergarten registration will be at 9 a.m. at the school with Mrs. Knot, teacher.
On the evening of May 2, speaker Evelyn Larson will be hosting a presentation at the Medstead Central School gymnasium. The information session, to be followed by a question period, is open to both students and families of children at the school, as well as to the general public.
Evelyn Larson, a consultant for the Saskatchewan Health Authority, is a life coach with Child and Youth Mental Health who spent time at the local school facilitating a program for Grades 1-4 to encourage positive habits and wellbeing. The focus of the May 2 presentation is the keeping of a healthy mind. The endeavour is scheduled for 7 p.m. and is to be followed by the annual general meeting of the School Community Council, the sponsors of the event.
