Principal’s Message February 2018
Welcome back to Semester II. Semester I was a busy one, with lots of activities going on in and around the school: exams have been written, hairdos and side tables built, meals prepared, issues debated, literature studied, equations balanced, chemical reactions observed. Our Dramatic and Musical Cobras have wrapped up their run of Back to the 80s thanks to the Claresholm Arts Society, Cobra Basketball is well underway with lots of success, regardless of team, our Volleyball Cobras represented the school well, our Cobra Football team brought home the Zone and Provincial banner, and we had a X-Country Cobra represent us at Provincials. High School Students, and Grade 9s have successfully completed their first semester courses and are looking forward to a busy second semester. Grade 7s and 8s have powered through, continuing their learning despite a HS exam week.
I am looking forward to a number of events coming up for us. Second semester will see Art back in the school, with art classes running for both Jr and Sr High students. We’ll also switch up one shop space and Mr. Centola will run Fabrication instead of semester one’s Mechanics. Grade 9s will have their Risk Reduction full-day Workshop, and Grade 12 students will continue to participate in the Risk Reduction workshops, both put on for us by First Responders and other local community partners. We will host 2A Boys Basketball Provincials in March, with a whole lot of Basketball at all levels happening before that. Prom candidates will strut their stuff at the fashion show, and will wow us with their rhetoric during speeches. And . . . many other activities will be packed in to student life between now and June 28th.
In thinking about the myriad activities that happen at Willow Creek Composite High School each year, I am often astounded by students’ attitudes and their drive to succeed, and by the support shown by parents to them and to us to help that happen. It feels great to be a Cobra, whatever aspect of school life that might be in.
Best of luck to students in Semester II.
