Principal’s Message November 2017
Well . . .we are now well in the swing of things for the 2017-18 school year. We’ve had a chance for students and parents to meet teachers at Parent Teacher Interviews and for students to be engaged in multiple activities: from Cobra X-Country Running, Volleyball, Football, to dress up days, Leadership Elections, and Read, Write and Draw Ins. Once again we can be proud of the performance of so many students already in the year, both in and outside of the school.
I’m really looking forward to our Annual Awards Assembly and Awards Evening next week. We’ve been organizing and calculating, ordering and planning since last June in preparation for the event. It is one of my favorite times at school because I get to watch students who work hard and succeed be celebrated. I know calls have gone out, and now the anticipation grows, for all students. I am also excited to award our Distinguished Alumni award to a former WCCHS student as well. But who that is? We’ll keep it under wraps for a little while longer.
Our Provincial 2A Basketball Host fundraising is well on track, including November’s Cash Calendars. I know I’ve got two, and am checking every day! Thanks to our Co-Chairs Lisa Perry and Carmelle Steele who are whipping the rest of us into shape! Also an especial thanks need to go out to Natalie Wright for her efforts with fundraising. If you would like to get involved in this whole-community venture, talk with Carmelle or Lisa. They’ll find you something to do, or at least point you in the right direction.
As always, my door is open to talk with parents, students and community members. Please drop me a line if you have questions, comments or concerns.
