The William E. Hay runners gave their all and Andrew Kim was able to reach 11th place in his category, while Jennifer Taylor record a ninth-place finish in her division.

On Oct. 13, 200 students will descend on Red Deer to compete in science challenges and learn about careers in the sciences. If anyone is interested in joining the Edacity Extreme Challenge, register at edacity.ca.

William E. Hay will now be a household battery recycling depot collection spot. If you have any used batteries, bring them to the bin in the office.

It is that time of year again! Post-secondary institutions have started opening up their application process, as have many of the scholarship competitions.

Students who are planning on pursuing postsecondary studies should stay tuned to the memo for any scholarship and post-secondary information that comes from Student Services.

Parents can access this same information on the memo link on our website. There will be post-secondary application/funding information nights planned in the near future.

The Be the Change Team is “Contribution Catching” this week. Students who are caught performing positive acts around our school will be recognized with a round of applause, a treat and their name will be posted on the Be the Change Wall for the rest of the school to see.

This Friday is William E. Hay’s annual fall awards ceremony night. The ceremony will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Centre.
