Principal’s Message September 2017
Welcome back to Willow Creek Composite High School for another year. We are excited to get back to the business of teaching and learning this fall. We have increased in population a bit this year: we projected 316 students and are currently sitting at 327. This number includes 12 semestered or full year international students, some from Germany and some from Colombia. We will also be hosting a few Chilean students for 3 month stays starting in November. We may also have the opportunity, in the next year or so, for WCCHS students to participate in an exchange with students in Chile.
We welcome Mr. Styles, our new construction teacher. We are excited to have him and Mr. Centola in our school full time this year. We will also welcome back Ms. High who was new mid-year last year, but is continuing with us in Cosmetology. Ms. Mariah Besplug is our U of Lethbridge intern teacher, and will be working with Mrs. Franz in Gr 9 ELA and Social Studies.
We are excited for the possibilities that this new school year brings. One thing happening for sure is that we are hosting the 2A High School Boys Provincial Tournament in March. Thank you to Lisa Perry and Carmelle Steel who have taken the reins as Tournament Co-Chairs, and a thank you in advance to those of you who are already looking for opportunities to help out on various committees for that tournament. I know this community will get behind this amazing opportunity for our students and the town as a whole, because that is just what Claresholm does.
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.
