WILDCAT CORNER

It has been another exciting week at William E. Hay.

Student learning conferences will be held Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m., for all students from grades 11 and 12. Teacher advisors are contacting parents to set up appointments.

After the conferences, the early intervention/meet-the-teacher sessions run from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the gymnasium.

The school’s Be the Change team has begun doing small “good deeds” to build school spirit.

The group’s first action was spreading small notes on the lockers with inspirational quotes and distributing chocolate kisses to the students. They plan to continue such acts of kindness throughout the school year.

The phys-ed 20/30 classes have organized intramurals, which began Tuesday with volleyball as the first sport. They will be held every Tuesday and Thursday, with volleyball running until the first week of November, followed by basketball until the Christmas break. Students can sign up with their T.A. teachers or organize their own teams.

Thanks to the IODE rummage sale, Mrs. Leschert’s 20-1 classes are well underway, working on their Significant Objects project. Students are turning “insignificant” items into significant items through stories that they will create.

At the end, they will auction their items and stories on eBay.

The Eco Club at William E. Hay was formed last year to raise awareness and promote being eco-friendly.

They have been informing students and staff about local, national and international recycling issues through “Eco Minute,” a segment of Wildcat Corner, our school’s TV arts show. They will be holding a local bottle drive to raise money to improve the school’s recycling program.

If you wish to donate your bottles and cans, you can bring them to the west vocational wing, opposite the football field, between Oct. 11 and 14. Thank you in advance for your support.

Our fall awards ceremony will take place Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Centre.
