The school’s Grade 9 girls volleyball team has had an incredibly successful season. Saturday, Nov. 14, the girls won the gold medal in the CARA tournament in an intense, exciting final against Theresetta.

They continued to go onto CWAJHAA in Lacombe on Saturday, Nov. 21. Mrs. Lotoski is extremely proud of their teamwork, and sportsmanship.

Last weekend, six students, and three chaperones travelled to Edmonton to be a part of the Provincial SADD (Students Against Drinking and Driving) Conference. They met up with one other team member, Kendra Grams, who travelled to Edmonton early and was part of team SADD; she and the team were in charge of introducing speakers, and various other tasks, and activities. The group had a great weekend listening to speakers from across the country, speaking on various topics relating to SADD, and leadership. They participated in activities such as going through mazes while texting, demonstrating how difficult it is to text and drive.

Last week , the Grade 12 students were presenting their portfolios to panelists. The presentations are a Grade 12 exit requirement. We would like to thank the community and staff members who volunteered their time to be part of the panel for these presentations. In lieu of gifts this year, we will be donating $300 to the food bank, on behalf of the panelists. In addition, we are also challenging our Grade 12 students to “fill a fridge,” and bring in donations for the food bank.

Students from all grades have been working on wrapping, and filling boxes for Operation Christmas Child. These boxes will be going to children in lesser developed countries under unfortunate circumstances, as Christmas presents. If the students reach their goal of 500 boxes, they will be rewarded with a “Reward Day,” on the last day of classes before Christmas break.

Basketball tryouts began this week, on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for the senior, and junior boys’ and girls’ teams.

Thanks once again, and join us next week for happenings at Wm. E. Hay.
