Visit to hospital was fulfilling experience for Hay students

By Jorgen Rangen

We had a pretty relaxed week here at William E. Hay High School in Stettler – at least until report cards were sent home.

Other than the inevitable mid-term mark sorrows, things are running quite smoothly.

Students Against Drunk Driving had a very successful trick-or-treating campaign. They almost filled the box of a pickup truck with food bank donations. They are thankful for this generous display of community support.

Our school had 39 students attend Health Discovery Day last Thursday at the Stettler Hospital. They were given presentations and tours of numerous departments; it was an enlightening experience for all who attended.

Recently, our Art 10 class has started carving soapstone, and they seem to be really enjoying the experience.

Also, Mrs. Lotoski’s French class had a meeting on Monday to discuss the trip to Paris they’ll be taking later this year.

The athletic board will be having an athletic clothing sale, hopefully later this month, so that students can purchase Wildcat apparel.

That’s it for this week, folks.

Stay tuned until next time.
