Exam Schedule's Out!

A sincere "Thank You" to all staff and students who participated in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event last Thursday. The donations will be forwarded to the YW Sherriff King Home to support women and their families excaping domestic violence.

Final Exams in January 2020

Good news, the exam schedule is now posted under Teaching & Learning > Exams & Graduation. Please note, that we ask families to ensure that all students are present to complete the final assessments for the semester. For students in 30 level classes, it's important to understand that the Alberta Education Diploma examinations cannot be rescheduled. Additional information is posted in the resources panel of the Exams & Graduation page of our website.

Reminder that all International students and students rewriting exams must pay for exams on  myPass and subit receipts to the Main Office. Without providing this receipt, students will not be able to write exams in January. This is an Alberta Education regulation.

Once again, please view the Teaching & Learning menu to access the Exams & Graduation page for further information regarding the exam schedule​, tips and concerns for our exams in January.

Have a wonderful week.

Mid-Semester Draws Near!

We hope that everyone is having a good week. Thank you again for joining us during parent-teacher interviews last Thursday. 

It has been an eventful week already; I invite you to check out our news spotlights for photos and details on all the exciting things happening here at Henry Wise Wood. We would like to thank all of our Veterans who participated in our Veterans’ Tea. A special appreciation goes to all staff and students who helped set up this wonderful event, with a special acknowledgment for Ms. Teleky for her leadership coordinating this learning opportunity.​

As we move towards the end of October and the Halloween season, we would like to share a friendly reminder about some costume considerations. Families who are new to HWW, we have a wonderful Halloween parade on Oct 31 and encourage lots of spirit and creative costumes from staff and students!

​A reminder to parents to review the following with their student regarding costumes:

  • No Masks - we need to see our students faces
  • No weapson of any kind - guns, swords, etc.
  • Costumes that are offensive - inappropriate slogans, symbols, etc.
  • Unsuitable Clothing - please follow the dress code.
Lastly, mid-term report cards will be ready Monday, November 4. This is a reminder that there will be no printed Report Cards for the mid-term marks. Parents and students are asked to check their PowerSchool/MyCBE account for the most up to date marks. We also encourage students and parents to connect with teachers for questions and for a plan of action and support. This is only the mid-way point through the semester and there are many opportunities for improvement.

Welcome to the New Year!

​I am very pleased to welcome our new and returning students and their families to the 2019–20 year at Henry Wise Wood High School. We are proud of the opportunities that are available to our students both in and out of the classroom. 

I encourage all our students to take full advantage of these opportunities and make the most of their time in high school. This new website contains important information about the 2019-20 school year. I encourage you to take a few moments to familiarize yourself with it and discover the many resources it contains​​​.

Principal
