William E. Hay, thanks to the guidance and dedication of Mr. Gregory in hosting another Operation Christmas Child.
Students’ union donated 300 rolls of wrapping paper to the event, and together, we managed to fill 305 boxes and raise $500.
All students and teachers met in the gym to wrap their treasure-filled boxes and it was a great way to kick off the holiday season.
On Dec. 13, there will be a Night of the Bands concert at the Performing Arts Center.
This concert is a free event and includes all school bands including the Jazz Cats, and the Jazz Guys.
We invite you to come out and have a listen to what our students have been working on.
Near the beginning of the month, the Students Against Drinking and Driving group participated in the SADD Provincial Conference in Edmonton.
They listened to various presenters speaking about how their lives had been affected by drinking and driving and engaged in a “strike” to the legislature, getting the message across that drinking and driving doesn’t mix.
SADD was also invited to the Red Deer Rebels hockey game on Tuesday, Dec. 23, to help promote the Alberta Motor Association’s “None for the Road” Campaign.
SADD is very pleased to be included this year in the annual charity checkstop on Dec. 11. All proceeds will be distributed to the Stettler Christmas Hamper Society, Heartland Victim Services, SADD, and the Camrose Women’s Shelter.
That’s all for this week, folks.
