Every month the Students Union holds a student of the month contest, the contest for the month of September was “Most Welcoming student”.

Every month the Students Union holds a student of the month contest, the contest for the month of September was “Most Welcoming student”.

The students being recognized for their willingness to help all students feel welcome and accepted in our school are Mary O’Donnell in Grade 9, Jessica Lee in Grade 12, Cooper Jackson in Grade 11 and Brittany Strandquist in Grade 10.

The New Norway track meet was held on Thursday, Oct. 1. The Wm. E. Hay cross-country running team won the overall team award. The course was one of the most challenging ones around with several hills, uneven terrain and water holes that the runners had to negotiate. Our top 10 finishers included Alana Skodopole coming in first, Brad Lawlor coming 3rd, Andrea Pederson 5th and Evan Buffalo 8th.

This week we would like to recognize Mrs. Klevgaard’s teacher advisory class for working on picking rocks from the elementary playgrounds to make sure that the elementary students are safe and comfortable while playing on the equipment. They will continue this next week as well. The TA class also celebrated a birthday; the celebration included a cake, a game of twister, party hats, balloons and music. The students took on the task of planning, organizing and carrying out all of the preparation. Their hope is to visit elementary students in their classrooms later in the year to do some sharing.

On Wednesday, Oct. 7, all students grade 9-11 attended a drug resistance educational speaker brought to us by the Seven Steps Society.

The Students Against Drinking and Driving group attended a conference over the weekend at Deer Valley Meadows. The SADD students learned a lot on their trip and will be bringing their knowledge back to increase student awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving.

A reminder once again: the school will be holding Parent Teacher Interviews/Meet the Teacher night on Wednesday, Oct. 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Stettler Legion Hall. Also, don’t forget about the Fall Awards ceremony Friday Oct. 9 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

That’s all for the Wildcat news this week, tune in next week for more updates.
