Parkland Student Wins Arbor Day Contest

Chelsea Thiessen 130x97This spring the city of Winkler created an opportunity for all grade 4 students in Winkler to enter a poster contest to celebrate Arbor Day.  The theme of the submission was required to be “Go Out on a Limb”, seeking to get students involved and excited about the important role trees play in our community and our health.  

Parkland Elementary School is proud to announce that one of their students submitted the winning entry!  Chelsea Thiessen of class 4D is the city wide winner and will have her poster re-produced and posted throughout the city of Winkler!  

As a result of her successful entry, Chelsea won a Wal-mart gift card and her class will also receive a pizza party!  Congratulations Chelsea!
