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. Congratulations to all participants for a job well done. These athletes will continue training for the provincial cross country meet to be held in Wetaskiwin, Oct. 17.

Students Against Drinking and Driving (SADD) members were pleased to participate in the Safe Communities “Be Visible” campaign on Oct. 7. Members helped to serve hot dogs and pop in front of Wells Furniture on Main Street.

A new teacher to our school, Mrs. Leschert, was the recipient of the Hazel Alberta Robinson Memorial Award from the University of Alberta. The award was based on her creative writing and reflection during her student teaching at Wm. E. Hay last year. Congratulations, Mrs. Leschert

All parents are invited to attend the parent council meeting on Thursday, Oct. 15 in room 116 at 7 p.m.
