Students’ union organizes Hat Day as fundraiser for shelters, call for items to fill shoe boxes

This week the Be the Change Team was working towards making the community a more positive place by painting over the unsightly and discriminatory graffiti that covered the old swimming pool.

This week the Be the Change Team was working towards making the community a more positive place by painting over the unsightly and discriminatory graffiti that covered the old swimming pool.

The team was given permission from the town and was supplied with white paint to cover the vandalism. The team was then able to add positive messages on the building before it is demolished in the next few months. What an excellent example of active citizenship and social change.

The students’ union will be holding another Hat Day next Wednesday. The students are asked to pay two dollars to get their “free pass” to wear their hats all day, and all of the proceeds go to the Women’s Shelters of Central Alberta.

This week we would like to highlight Mr. Gregory’s Teacher Advisory Class. Mr. Gregory’s TA class has taken on the challenge of organizing Operation Christmas Child this year. The class is encouraging all students to bring in items to fill shoe boxes that will be sent to impoverished children around the world. This will be a challenge for all TA classes – the class that fills the most boxes will win a Chinese food lunch. Also, if the students are able to reach the target of 500 boxes, they will be given a “Reward Day” the last day of class before Christmas Break.

On Friday, Oct. 30, the school will be having a Halloween dress-up day, and the students’ union is encouraging all staff and students to participate. There will be prizes awarded for various categories of costumes, and we have also heard rumours that some TA classes are dressing up in themes.

On Monday, Nov. 9, Clearview School Division will be hosting a community consultation. The purpose of the consultation is to give our school communities an opportunity to provide feedback to trustees about their school and the vital components of education for the children in their community. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. and supper is provided.

To RSVP for this event please call the high school office at 403-742-3466 by Wednesday, Nov. 4.

That’s all for the Wildcat News this week, we’ll be back the same time next week with more updates from Wm. E. Hay.
