We are all finally adjusting to our usual school routines, with things starting up again, such as SADD (Students Against Drunk Driving), Morning Band, Eco Club, Be the Change, and Breakfast for Learning. You will certainly be hearing much more about these programs and clubs as they get underway for the new school year.

The building construction department will consider any project anyone might have in mind for the school group. There are many intermediate and senior builders that are competent enough to complete a project. Costs for all projects will be materials plus 20 per cent. For more information, contact Gord Goodrich at 403-742-3466.

The Grade 9 social classes are campaigning for their mock elections, which will be held this Friday. For the elections, they will be representing the Liberal, Conservative, NDP and Green parties. Each party will have a platform of five key points covering what the party will do for the environment, economy, crime, agriculture and defence.

Last week, the athletic department had its annual chocolate-bar blitz. All students currently involved or planning to be involved in any school sports team were encouraged to come out and help fundraise by selling chocolate bars around town.

The money raised will go toward keeping athletic costs low, so every student has an opportunity to be involved in any sport. Although it was a one-night blitz, there’s still chocolate available. Contact the school if you’re interested in purchasing some.
