Grad preparations underway

WILDCAT CORNER -- This week at Wm. E Hay Stettler Secondary Campus, Monday was an early Monday.

WILDCAT CORNER — This week at Wm. E Hay Stettler Secondary Campus, Monday was an early Monday and there is no school on Thursday and Friday for teachers’ convention.

We had a Reach tournament with the Senior A team coming out undefeated, with prospects of going to provincials this past Tuesday in Ponoka. There are skills practices every Tuesday and Thursday in the Cos lab at lunch.

Archery is practicing every Tuesday and Thursday after school for the rest of March. On Feb. 28 it was the second annual Castor Archery Shoot and it could not have gone any better for Jessa Hetherington. The seven kids from the Stettler team placed fourth or higher. Three out of the four kids who went to finals won their age category. Jessa also had a personal best and the overall high score for the whole tournament with a 291/300.

Permission slips are available for English 30-2 students for the Sherlock trip. Please see Ms. Mielke to get information and a form. Forms are due by March 24.

The County of Stettler is looking to fill a seasonal summer student position. AG Services department hires three to six summer college/university students every year starting in May, ending when school starts, so this summer student (July to August) position is a great opportunity for someone considering secondary education to get trained, and then be able to come back to a good local summer job each year. Please See Ms. Resch in the office for more details.

The Grade 9 students will have a drumming presentation next Monday facilitated by AHS-Addictions Counsellor Gerry Mancini. Through the drumming, the group will delve into issues impacting student success such as working with others, finding their own voice, dealing with change, coping with stress, etc.

Coco Brooks orders for New Orleans were picked up by those who sold. If you were unable to attend the lawyer signing on Monday, Feb. 29, you must phone Schnell Hardy and Jones to make an appointment. They have generously offered this service to us free of charge. Their number is 403 742 4436. This letter and a valid passport are essential to go on the trip.

Graduation is under way and the song has now been selected “We’ve Only Begun” as the theme for this year’s grad class. Any grads who would like to submit a poem on that theme for the grad program, please see Mrs. Lotoski. Entries are due by March 23.
