February 2015 Principal's Message

I hope that all students were successful in passing their first semester final exams and courses. It is hard to believe that we are half way through the school year. The time has just been flying by. The students are settling in to their new classes with their new teachers and we are now under way with the start of the second semester. I would like to thank our Student Services department and Mrs. Lovell for all of their time spent accommodating our students with timetable changes so that our students were prepared to start semester two with a working timetable.

As we get started in semester two, I would like to remind parents that you need to call the school's attendance line at (403) 742-3476 within 24 hours of your child being away so that their absence may be confirmed. This is crucial because a student's time away from school could affect their learning and the mastery all of their curricular outcomes. Also, without a phone call the absence will be entered into our Student Information System (Maplewood) as an unconfirmed absence and a phone call will then be made home. Both our attendance and exam exemption policies can be found on our school website at www.wmehay.ab.ca.

With Grad 2015 fast approaching, I would like to remind our grade 12 students that in order to be eligible for our Wm. E. Hay Graduation Ceremony, there are some requirements that you must be fulfilling. First, all grade 12 students must be registered in a minimum of 7 out of 8 blocks for the current school year, have at least 80 credits completed at the end of semester one and have a working timetable that will enable them to obtain an Alberta High School Diploma at the end of semester two. Grade 12 students also need to have completed their grade 11 Math and Science requirements as well as HCS 3000, CTR 3310 and finish their student portfolio presentation. If there is a possibility that a student may have failed a first semester course required for a High School Diploma, they must see one of the teachers in the Student Services department as soon as possible to revisit their educational plan to stay on track to obtain their high school diploma. If your grade 12 son or daughter may be in jeopardy of meeting the Alberta Education High School Diploma credentialing requirements or the Wm. E. Hay Graduation ceremony requirements, you may have received a letter in the mail indicating this. Also, all grade 12 students will be meeting in the gym on Friday February 6th; during TA class regardless of if they are planning to be in our Graduation Ceremony or not this year. Grand March practices are every Friday during Teacher Advisor (TA) class and if students miss more than three practices, they will not be allowed to continue in the Grand March. Graduation eligibility requirements will be monitored right up to grad time. Please remember, that the Graduation Ceremony at Wm. E. Hay is a privilege and not a right.

If you are enrolled in any of the Off Campus Education Programs (Registered Apprenticeship Program, Work Experience or Green Certificate program), you must be turning in your time sheets on a regular basis to either Ms. Resch or me. Grade 12 students enrolled in these programs that are not bringing in weekly time sheets or attending school regularly will be withdrawn from participating in our Wm. E. Hay Graduation Ceremony.

Last month we included information for parents about signing up for the Remind App to receive notifications from our school about when important events are happening. Please see the information in this newsletter about how you can sign up to receive our school notifications through the Remind App.  Finally, the last thing that we ask of you is to please make sure that your studentsí account is paid in full. If you are unable to clear your accounts in full please call and speak to me personally.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call Mr. Baharally, school principal, at 403-742-3466 or e-mail
