Project week coming up oat William E. Hay High School

By Justina Nibourg

This week was pretty mellow but made many students happy to have only three days of school. Report cards came out on the Nov. 4 and let’s hope everyone’s marks were good.

Last month’s student of the month was for happy go lucky and our winners were Roseanne Hernando, Sherri Langford, Eryhn Boggs, and Ashley Bennett. November’s student of the month is for citizenship.

We had our Remembrance Day service on Nov. 10 and we would like to thank the Legion for coming and reminding us why we have a beautiful, free country we call Canada.

We would like to thank our soldiers for protecting us with their lives. For those who can’t stand behind our soldiers, please feel free to stand in front of them.

We would also like to thank Jessica Harvey for being master of ceremonies and to Amy Nattestad for giving an amazing speech.

Rehearsals of Anne of Green Gables is going well. The players are working hard to put on an amazing play, so please buy tickets. Tickets can be bought at Odds and Ends or at the high school office.

On Nov. 17, all the teacher advisor groups will get together in the gym to wrap and pack shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.

This year all boxes will be sent to Haiti, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Chile, Uruguay, Venezuela, and some parts of West Africa.

Nov. 22 to 25, the school is having a project week, this is where each class will be about three hours long and meet only twice during the week.

These classes will be, as the name says, intended for students to work on projects that are assigned by teachers.

Basketball starts up soon, so come and try out for the teams.

That’s all that is going on this week at Wm.E.Hay school, but tune in next week to see what fun things are going on.
