In sports this week we have the end of the volleyball season approaching quickly. CARA starts on Nov. 4. This past Saturday, Oct. 24 participated in a tournament in Erskine that was hosted by Donalda. Upcoming games are on Saturday, Nov. 7 at Stettler (CARA final tournament), and Saturday, Nov. 21 (CWAJHAA regional tournament, location to be determined).
Twenty junior high students went to Burman University in Lacombe for the last cross-country event of the season. This meet includes all schools in Central Alberta and usually draws 800 to 1,000 runners in the race. Isaac Lee in Grade 8 finished first, with Clay Kneeland coming in a very well earned seventh place. Kassie Diegel in Grade 9 finished in third and Tori Brower finished in sixth.
It was Meet the Teacher night last Thursday, and the yearbook committee was there promoting the great opportunities that yearbook has to offer. If you like taking pictures, you should join the yearbook. FCS is preparing for operation Christmas Child and will be having a bake sale every Thursday at lunch for the next three weeks to raise money for the boxes, which they will be packing in early November during TA/CIA.
YCAT will be having a costume contest over lunch on Oct. 30. There is a junior high dance on Nov. 6 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Be the Change will be doing a campaign called “We Scare Hunger.” This campaign works directly with our local food bank and our Ford dealership. All we want for the community is that everyone bring some non-perishable food items to William E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus by Oct. 30 where we will have a Ford truck ready to be filled.
