This is certainly a big week at William E. Hay Composite High School.

We will be host a teacher-to-teacher collaboration involving about 200 teachers this Thursday evening and during the day Friday.

These teachers and Alberta Education representatives will be at William E. Hay to discuss the High School Flexibility Enhancement Pilot Project. They will participate in discussions and even drop into classes. This is an exciting opportunity to showcase our outstanding students, outstanding programs and outstanding staff.

William E. Hay will be on a modified schedule for this Wednesday and Thursday to accommodate the second set of Project Days. Students will participate in a variety of activities, such as a camping trip to Deer Valley Meadows, Poetry Slam, visiting the local courthouse, and a department-wide Science Fair.

There will be a Halloween Dance, hosted by the Students’ Union, this Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. All students must bring their School ID in order to enter the dance.

As we look ahead to November, there will be a post-secondary fair held in the high school gym on Nov. 5 from 9 to 11:15 a.m. Students will have an opportunity to discuss postsecondary programs, with close to 30 post-secondary institutions in attendance.
