Principal's Message - Dec 2019
I would like to start off this newsletter message by offering a get well message to Mr. Baharally who is currently on a short medical leave. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
Congratulations to all of our students who have been involved in our extra-curricular activities this fall. We are very proud of the hard work and dedication that our students put into their extra-curricular activities.
Basketball season has begun with tryouts, practices and many games and tournaments getting underway. We are confident our athletes will represent our school well across all grades! We would like to take a moment to thank all of our volunteer coaches, without you our athletes would not be able to show off their skills. Thank you!
November 30th was the deadline for all 9,10, & 12 Student Learning Conferences (SLC) being wrapped up. Please contact your child’s Teacher Advisor if you have not been contacted to do an SLC.
A reminder to start thinking about exams coming up in January. A copy of the exam schedule will be available on our website very soon. Please go to http://wmehay.clearview.ab.ca/ for more information.
If your child is enrolled in a diploma assessed course they can sign up for Rock the Diploma. This January we will be offering Rock the Diploma through an Online Classroom format. There are posters up around the school and registration forms available at the office. The cost per course is $30. This will include all the resources the student needs for the course and snacks and water. The deadline to register is Dec. 4!
The last day of regular classes for Grades 10-12 will be January 23, Grade 9’s last day will be January 27, and the Grade 7 and 8’s will be January 29. If there are any conflicts for students, a makeup day for writing missed exams will be on Thursday, January 30. There is no school on January 31 as it is a Professional Day.
At this point, your child should have brought home information regarding the Parent site for PowerSchool. This is where you can access your child’s marks, attendance, schedule, etc. If you need any help setting up your account please contact the office at 403-742-3466 and we can help you.
A reminder, December 6th, the school will be closed for a Professional Day.
Finally, I would like to wish every a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope that everyone takes full advantage of the Christmas Break from December 21st - January 5th. The last day of classes is December 20th, and we will see you back on January 6th.
