My name is Jorgen Rangen, one of your Wildcat News correspondents and also the student union vice-president. I would like to welcome back all returning students and staff to our superb high school, and also to welcome all new students and staff to William E. Hay Composite High School.
For new staff appointments, we have Miss Kayla Fedor teaching English, dedicating her time to the breakfast for learning program, coaching the Grade 9 boys’ volleyball team, and also choreographing the Anne of Green Gables theatre production. Jessie Holwell, who received her first Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Ottawa and who just recently graduated from the University of Calgary, will be teaching social studies this year as well as coaching volleyball and representing staff on parent council. We also have Alicia Kneeland teaching cosmetology and esthetics, coaching JV basketball, and an active member of SADD. Our cosmetology program is happy to announce that upon completion of a new cosmetology lab, we will be offering basic hair services to students, friends, and community members at a discount price. Lindsey Hagen is teaching social studies, also devoting time to the breakfast for learning program, acting as a student union advisor, and as the Wildcat News teacher correspondent. Mr. Jon Campbell has taken the role of a physical education teacher and is also coaching the Wildcat football team.
On Thursday, Sept. 30, the Student Union, in partnership with the Athletic Board, Fine Arts Board, SADD, and the Be The Change Team, will be hosting a Spirit Day. The event will include a student versus faculty volleyball game, SADD will present an awareness video and activity, the Fine Arts Board will be hosting Fly on the Wall, where students will be duct taped to the wall by teams, and the Student Union is having a hot dog eating competition.
Recently, the Wildcat Athletic Board participated in a chocolate blitz to fundraise for the athletic program. We would like to thank the community for supporting this event. Also, we still have numerous boxes of chocolate almonds available for sale at the high school office.
Wildcat Theatre Productions is pleased to announce that auditions for Anne of Green Gables – the musical – are complete and the cast have been announced. Rehearsals are now taking place and the production will be presented to the public on Dec. 1, 2, and 3.
SADD (Students Against Drunk Driving) members from Wm. E. Hay High School are partnering with Safe Communities to hold a barbeque on Main Street Stettler on Oct. 6th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Money raised will be given to a local injury prevention committee and is in support of “Be Visible Day”.
That is what is happening at William E. Hay this week. Tune in next week and my partner Justina Nibourg will have more to tell.
