TA class graduation salutes co-operation

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2013 and special thanks to all of the staff, students, parents and community members

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2013 and special thanks to all of the staff, students, parents and community members who spent countless hours to make our graduation a truly momentous occasion.

The graduating class had a special assembly last Thursday in the gym. The class is the first group to have spent four years with their TA teacher, and the staff wanted to recognize that fact. All students were present to watch the Grade 12s receive cards from their TA teachers and then get pictures taken with their fellow Grade 12 TA students.

Ms. Code, Ms. Scarff and Mr. Aspenes organized the event. “We were so pleased to be involved in the recognition of our students in the TA graduation ceremony,” Ms. Scarff said. “The TA program has had a significant impact on all of us, bringing us closer to the deep co-operation necessary for successful learning. Thanks to everyone who helped us create an event that reflects the fun, dedicated attitude of Teacher Advisory class.”

“Being able to celebrate and recognize our Grade 12 TA students for the hard work they have done and the goals they have accomplished throughout their high school career was very momentous,” Ms. Code said. “It was very moving and empowering to see the great bonds and relationships formed between the Grade 12 students and their TA teachers today.”

The deadline to order Grad DVDs and group pictures is this Friday.

Today, Mr. Siemens’ Physics 30 class is heading to the University of Alberta to participate in a variety of physics related labs and activities. It’s a fantastic experience for students to get a better understanding of the depth and degree of university labs, as well as utilize the elaborate equipment provided by the U of A.

The Cosmetology 1.2 students are having a fashion show to showcase their talents, and local businesses, on June 13 at 7 p.m. at the parish hall. Tickets are $5 and available at the high school office.

Good luck to all of our track and field athletes competing in the zone meet today in Stettler.
