Dear HWW Students, Families and Community,
“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others." ~ Booker T. Washington
On Friday we shared details by School Messenger about our upcoming Warrior Voice Café in our ongoing work to create our welcome, safe, caring and respectful school. Please review the message and encourage your child to sign up to attend. All voices are valued and welcome. We hear you, we care and we are listening.
We will discuss the Warrior Voice Café as well as other important topics at our upcoming School Council meeting, taking place virtually at 6:30pm on Monday, December 13. Please click this link to join.
We are pleased to attach and share our January final exam schedule. Please review with your student to ensure they are aware of when and where they will be sitting their exams. In the spirit of generosity, and in response to interrupted learning needs and to the Alberta Education decision to lower Diploma Exam weightings this year, we have reduced our January and June final exam weightings to 20% in all core subjects. Teachers will be working with students to ensure a balanced body of learning evidence is gathered.
Thank you to all the Drama students, Mr. McDonald, Ms. Tuttle and Ms. Wells for the outstanding Drama production this week! It has truly been enlightening and great to see the artists of Wise Wood. The production runs to December 10, 2021. To get your tickets, contact Mr. McDonald @ email@example.com.
We are looking forward to the upcoming Band production on December 15 conducted by Ms. Natasha Mellish. All the HWW musicians are working hard to prepare for our first concert in 2 years.
In less joyous news, we are working closely with students about appropriate parking lot driving- including previous incidents of stunting. Our SRO has given out a number of warnings but after Winter Break it has been decided that tickets will be given for that behaviour which will cost $587 and 3 demerits. Please remind students to drive safely for the benefit of all.
Have a lovely winter week!
