This week we would like to spotlight Mrs. Shepherd’s Teacher Advisory class. Mrs, Shepherd’s TA class has teamed up with Mrs. Norman’s kindergarten class. Last week, the TA class worked with the kindergarteners on their ABCs and also worked together to create Halloween decorations. The classes will meet again throughout the year to further their relationships.

On Wednesday, Oct. 7, 30 of our students participated in the zone cross-country meet in Wetaskiwin. Wm. E. Hay athletes finished first in three out of six races.
