Principal’s Message May 2018
We are sooooo happy that Spring has finally come to Claresholm! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and students are trying to be focused on their studies despite all of that!
Many congratulations must go out to our Provincial Champion High School Boys Cobra Basketball team for their winning season. And . . . many thanks go to staff, students, volunteer parents, community businesses and Co-Chairs Lisa Perry and Carmelle Steel for their countless hours and sweat equity put into this event. It really showed me how a community can get behind a team and support our school.
I also have to congratulate our Cosmetology Cobras on their exploits at the April 25th Regional Skills Canada competition in Lethbridge. Three girls won their competitions: Mary Al Slieman received Gold in Intermediate Hairstyling and will be going to provincials, Kaelan Shimp received Bronze in Hairstyling Intermediate, and Jacci Wicks received Silver in Junior Hairstyling. Tanner Ling also competed in the Culinary Arts competition. Well done to all students who represented our school and took Pride in Performance.
Although it is partway through the semester, we welcome Greg Skelton as our new Foods teacher, ‘replacing’ (is that actually possible) Ms. Nelle in the Cafeteria. Certainly my waistline is testament to the fact that the quality of food produced by students in the cafeteria has not changed!
It is that time of year again where we are already looking at next year’s budget, courses, and timetables. Students have been completing 2018-19 course registration online this week, and we held our Registration Evening last Tuesday. If students are struggling with that process they can talk with Mrs. McNutt or me, and we will help get that sorted out.
Only a few weeks and we’ll be heading into exams and Grad. As always it flies by faster than I’d like. Until then . . . stay safe and work hard.
