Flex program is doing well

Hello, Wildcat fans,

This week, our Wm. E Hay students have been preparing extra hard for elections. Posters are popping up here and there, coat­ing the walls in sharpie and construction paper. Candy and treats are being handed out to persuade students to vote for the can­didates. As well, videos are being made to persuade students a little more. Some kids may not realize it but the students that are running for the election have a lot to do, and sure they have friends to help, but some are on their own. So, even if those students don’t win the elections, we would like to say a big congratulations to all our candi­dates for their efforts all week.

We have only four weeks left of school, so that means diplomas are coming up. Stu­dents are starting to work hard, and seem to be more intrigued with what their teach­ers have to say. The Flex program this year seems to have been running great. I’ve seen more students in the class then the hall­ways, and even though they aren’t really doing anything, they have to sit in a room with teachers who probably scold them at times, and just to please them, the students end up doing the work. Good job teachers, with getting students to do their work, even though you shouldn’t have to.

Now that the gowns are put away, and the march is done, students and staff seem to have a whole weight lifted off their shoulders. And every one seems happier than ever. Even though there has been a lot of rain, and cold days, at least we can say that winter is finally over, and has left us in a giant muddy puddle of happiness.

The Gay-Straight Alliance is hosting a parent night on Wednesday June 11 at the high school at 7 p.m.

This evening is for parents and commu­nity members who are interested in learn­ing more about sexual minorities and/or have any questions regarding this topic.

The topics of conversation will focus around religion as well as providing support and guidance for parents of the LGBTQ community. We are happy to include Rev. Carolyn Langford from the Alliance church who will be sharing her views and answer­ing questions on this topic. There will be juice, coffee and snacks provided. We look forward to seeing you there.

Please contact Jennifer Taylor, Miss. Santana Scarff or Mrs. Kate Syson at the school if you have any questions.
