Dear Henry Wise Wood Students, Parent/Guardians, and Community,

Today I would like to draw your particular attention to our upcoming May 19 full school virtual assembly and follow up May 30 and June 6 lunch hour sessions around the issues of consent, sexual assault, reporting and available supports.. This is in response to the two student walkouts this year, during which the students raised concerns and questions about these matters. Our students have gathered in Warrior Voice Cafes to build a supportive response plan. Please see the attached letter for further details. Thank you for your support of our Warrior community and our continued creation of our welcome, safe, caring and respectful learning environment. 

In other news, we are so pleased to share of the many successes of our spring Athletics teams,  

Field Hockey 

The girls competed in the Dino's Tournament and won 2 of their 3 games, placing third overall. They are having a dynamite season with a 3-1-1 record. Their last regular season game is Monday May 16 at the Soccer Centre @ 4pm. Good luck girls! 

Rugby

Congratulations to our senior boys who won gold, senior girls who won silver, and junior boys who won bronze at the Clearwater Cup on Friday. Our teams are having extremely successful seasons and we look forward to watching them in play-offs. 

Track and Field

Our athletes competed in the Dino's meet on Saturday and we had a number of top 5 finishes. We have a number of athletes competing again this evening at Foothills. Our Divisional Meet is next Wednesday May 18. Those who place in the top 6 in their event will qualify for City Finals on May 28. Go Warriors!

Soccer

Both soccer teams are moving along. Good luck to our seniors in their final 2 games. Our juniors had a big win last night and are currently second in their division. Keep up the momentum!
