Exchange program with the twin school in Germany expanding this year

If you are a Grade 12 student or a parent of a Grade 12 student who is planning on attending a post secondary institution next year, plan on attending an information session on applying for scholarships and post-secondary funding Dec. 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. in room 115.

In the 2010-2011 school year, Wm. E. Hay will be participating in a large group exchange with our twin school in Sanitz, Germany. 12 students will be participating in this exchange from Wm. E. Hay. All interested students and their parents are required to attend a meeting on Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. in room 116. Applications are due on Dec. 15.

This week we say goodbye to Tim Rudlaff from our twin school in Sanitz, Germany. Tim was with us for three months and stayed with his host partner, Taylor Olson and his family. Tim was extremely outgoing and was certainly a welcome addition to our school – he will be missed. Taylor will be heading to Sanitz for five weeks in February and March to stay with Tim and experience Germany.

Tis the season. Students and staff at Wm. E. Hay are getting into the holiday spirit with our annual door decorating competition. Teacher advisory classes will compete with each other with the goal of decorating the best classroom door. Doors will be judged by an impartial panel on Wednesday, Dec. 16.

The Morning Band will be performing in the Middle School rotunda balcony on the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 16. at 8 a.m. The performance consists of many holiday tunes as well as pieces that the band has been working on throughout the year.

As we move into the holiday season we would like to remind parents and students of important dates. Friday, Dec. 18 is the last day of classes before Christmas break. Classes resume on Monday, Jan. 4.
