Students put their trust in each other

William E. Hay has new report cards for our new marking procedures at the high school.

William E. Hay has new report cards for our new marking procedures at the high school. These report cards were handed out to students in TA class last Friday.

After report cards are issued, of course, parent-teacher interviews are scheduled. The interviews will be held today from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the high school gymnasium.

Challenge Days are coming up for grades 9 and 10 students on Nov. 28 and 29. This is billed as “a life-changing day,” where students are asked to put their trust in others. The end result is breaking down the barriers of communication between students.

Challenge Days allow students to drop the waterline and show that everyone goes through the same struggles in high school.

Anyone interested in being a facilitator for Challenge Days is asked to contact Myranda Shepherd at or 403-742-3466.

William E. Hay students will participate in the Tell Them From Me survey this week. This is the seventh Tell Them From Me survey conducted at William E. Hay over the course of our High School Flexibility Enhancement Pilot Project.

The survey gives all students an opportunity to have their voices heard about education at our school, through an anonymous survey. The survey helps better direct our programs and practices here at the school.

Once again this year, our Be The Change Team plans to volunteer at the Kids’ Centre during the ShareBear Christmas Bazaar this Saturday. Be sure to stop by and support the bazaar.

There is no school on Friday, because of parent-teacher interviews. I hope all students and staff have an enjoyable long weekend.
