Portfolio presentations start next week, joint BBQ planned

For a second year, our Grade-12 students will begin gearing up for our portfolio presentation week, which will take place from November 16-19. Portfolio presentations are an exit requirement at Wm. E. Hay, and an excellent self-reflection tool that allows students to better understand the skills and abilities they have to offer potential employers, community organizations, or post-secondary institutions.

Our school’s Students Against Drinking and Driving (SADD) chapter will be attending the annual provincial conference on Nov. 6-8. This year will mark the 20th year of SADD being in Alberta, and we are thrilled to have our chapter be part of this event. Also, we are pleased to acknowledge our chapter president, Kendra Grams, who was selected from hundreds of applicants to be a member of Team SADD Alberta. Team SADD Alberta organizes and acts as youth leaders throughout the provincial conference. Congratulations Kendra.

This week we would like to highlight Mr. Siemens’ teach advisory (TA) class. Mr. Siemens’ class went ‘all out’ for Halloween by decorating their classroom. They are currently busy working on filling shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, with a goal of donating more boxes than Mr. Enyedy’s TA class. A reminder for all students to bring items to fill the shoeboxes, which will be sent to those less fortunate for Christmas. In the future, Mr. Siemens’ TA class will be planning on joining with a few other TA classes for a joint BBQ.

Report cards were sent home on Friday, Nov. 6. A reminder to parents of parent-teacher interviews taking place on Thursday, Nov. 12 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Stettler Legion Hall.

That’s it for this week; join us next week for more news from Wm. E. Hay.
