Important Dates

Athletic Awards

Thank you to all of our athletes for another incredible year of Warrior Athletics! On Friday June 26 between 9-2 pm, we will be celebrating our athletic award winners from the 2019/20 season.

 The schedule is as follows:

  • 9-10 am Swimming and Wrestling
  • 10-11 am Trainers of the Year, Curling and Badminton
  • 11-12 pm – Volleyball, Girls Soccer, Gr. 12 Athletes of the Year
  • 12-1 pm – Basketball, Cross Country, Gr 10 & 11 Athletes of the Year
  • 1-2 pm – Football

Award recipients will be notified by their coach this week via phone or email, and are asked to join us during their scheduled time for a small presentation and photo (semi-formal wear suggested). As we continue to follow AHS guidelines adhering to safe distancing, we kindly ask that once the award is presented, students celebrate elsewhere to ensure that the next group can join us. Looking forward to a great day! 

Academic Awards:

The Annual Academic Awards will be held on Thursday June 25 between 9am – 3pm.

Education Matters Scholarships and HWW Major Awards will be presented during that time. Parents and students will receive an email and phone call to let them know they are the recipient of a major award. Recipients will enter from the main doors and be directed to the Courtyard where a photo will be taken and award presented. Each recipient will have a specific time spot and we will adhere to all AHS Covid Protocols. We are looking forward to honoring these amazing students!

Creative Arts & CTS Awards:

For the overall exceptional award winners, the Creative Arts and CTS awards will be taking place on Friday June 26 between 9-2 pm. For all other award winners this will take place between Thursday June 25 -Tuesday June 30. You will be contacted for details.

Students have worked very hard to distinguish themselves this year, either in classroom learning or under the unfamiliar scenario of ongoing learning during the Covid-19 global pandemic.  As school winds down, and we reflect on the year we’ve had, take pride in these accomplishments!  Students certainly deserve recognition, and they have earned our appreciation and respect for the extra distance they have covered through their dogged pursuit of excellence!  Attributes like effort, work ethic, persistence, service, engagement, and skill refinement by individual students help to create the programs and culture that Henry Wise Wood is known for.  For that, we congratulate all our award winners!

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and health and safety restrictions, the Creative Arts and CTS awards are being handled differently this year. Some students will be picking up their awards from the pick-up window, while our Overall Exceptional award winners will be invited for a photo opportunity with their teachers. Award winners will be sent an invite through email which will outline the pick up schedule and instructions.

Yearbooks have arrived!

School Updates:

We ask all of our parents and independent students to ensure they have paid all school fees owing and return all textbooks to the Learning Commons. To check your fee balance please log into your My CBE Account online or contact the business office at (403)253-2261, ext 2421. 

myPass is a very important tool that roughly 800 HWW students are still not accessing!  Students need it to: order high school transcripts, view diploma marks, register to write diploma exams, view your progress towards your diploma or certificate, access detailed academic reports, view and print confirmation letters, and much more! To sign up, go to mypass.alberta.ca and create a new education account with a non- CBE email and password. Verify your e-mail, then follow the prompts and request an access code to be mailed to you. For more information, see guidance.

As My CBE Account will be discontinuing over the summer, please ensure that you have signed up to receive updated information from  SchoolMessenger.

It’s Time to Celebrate! Join in the HWW Drive Thru Grad Initiative

Join fellow Henry Wise Wood Graduates and family members, on June 25 at 4:30 pm at Spruce Meadows, for our “Drive Thru” Graduation celebration!

As Mayor Nenshi said, “Every high school student wants to have a memorable graduation,” so in an effort to make happen, this “drive-thru model” offers graduates that special celebration they’ve worked so hard for, to have their name called, and to walk the stage, perhaps in cap and gown, in front of their HWW community.

For more information on how the celebration unfolds, fees, and to register, visit https://www.drivethrugrad2020.com/, and if you register, please send a note to our Parent Advocate, Tammy Lane, who is coordinating the event for us at henrywisewoodgrad2020@gmail.com, and we will keep you updated as June 25 approaches.

Also, please join our dedicated Facebook page, to find out the latest information, engage in group discussions about cap and/or gowns purchases and keep apprised of all the updates specific to our school, as June 25 approaches! "Like" and "Share" this page with your friends!

Of course, safety adherence and compliance to all AHS approvals is paramount to proceeding with Drive Thru Grad and this project meets all requirements for Drive-In Events laid out by Alberta Health Services, so consider joining with a group of enthusiastic parents & students who are organizing and participating in our “Drive Thru Grad” celebration at the marvelous venue of Spruce Meadows on June  25.
