The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for our wrestling team. Our athletes participated in the B.C. Northern Zones tournament on February 8th in Prince George. They competed against teams from all over the North. ALL of our competitors qualified for Provincials! Here are the results:
48 kg – Lucas Beam – 2nd Place
57 kg – Nero Weder – 2nd Place
84 kg – Xavier Beam – 2nd Place
90 kg – Pasco Weder – 1st Place
57 kg – Freyja Jarnagin – 1st Place
69 kg – Bella Lucas Jarnagin – 1st Place
Also, Freyja Jarnagin won the Most Outstanding Female Wrestler for the entire Northern Zone Region! The Hudson’s Hope School Girls’ Team won the team tournament! Pretty exciting results for a school that has only been wrestling for three years. Great work Coaches Coleman Mercereau and Peter Douglas!
Five of our competitors travelled to the B.C. Provincial Wrestling Championships in Langley last weekend. All of our wrestlers earned points in their matches, or won at least one match (which is fantastic at the Provincial level). Pasco Weder earned the highest place for our school, making it to the final four, and finishing 4th in the province! Congratulations to Lucas Beam, Xavier Beam, Pasco Weder, Freyja Jarnagin, and Bella Lucas Jarnagin for giving it your all in this high-level competition. Again, a big thank you to Coleman Mercereau for travelling to Langley to coach our students. Way to go HAWKS!
Our annual Christmas Concert was beautiful. We had a record turnout of family and community members. Ms Dee once again wrote and created a fun and meaningful production that entertained us all and was truly rewarding for our students. Merry Christmas to all!
Our School Science Fair was once again a fantastic event. It is truly amazing to watch our grade three to six students share their projects with their peers, parents, and judges. I greatly enjoy observing how each child’s confidence grows as they present to different audiences. A big thank you to our teachers and support staff for their guidance, and of course to parents for supporting your child(ren). We had a great turnout of parents, relatives, and community members to our Fair! Also a big thank you to our many volunteer judges:
Mattias Gibbs, Levi Verlaan, Nigel Tilsen, Laurie Petrucci, Lorenne Hamre, Guy Armitage, Bill Lindsay, Wally Harwood, Tashana Winnicky, James Paulgaard, Erich Schmidt,Tim Hart, Dave Sloan, Deborah Peck, Ross Peck, and Grace Okada
Congratulations to the following students who will be representing our school at the Regional Science Fair this Spring: Hadley Gilliss, Sheigh Siemens, Andrew Quibell, Kaden McAndrews, Madison Beebe, Stella Matchett, Halle Beebe (gr 3), Damian Aldridge, Ayden Quibell, Penelope Mercereau, Addison Carruthers
Our grade 4-7 students enjoyed a fun day exploring different career options, while also participating in engaging hands-on activities. A big thank you to Mrs. Conway and her School District 60 Careers Team! The students rotated through six different stations including “Medical, Textiles, Try a Tool, Electrical, Welding, and Horticulture”. We were very thankful to have Mr. Paulgaard run the Medical Station (with a tour of the ambulance as an added bonus), and Lannie Rhymer provided an awesome hands-on horticulture station! Jesse Matheson put together a great career information station with books from the library (which the Career Team thought was such an awesome idea, they are going to incorporate the idea into their future Career Days). Also, thank you Mrs. Hart for volunteering to help out wherever needed. Awesome work everyone! Below are just a few quick pics!

Check out this link to an article by the Alaska Highway News featuring the beautiful home our students built last year! Missing from the photo – Martell Loberg (attending UNBC), and Sarah Haagsman (attending Northern Lights College). Great work HAWKS!
Last Wednesday morning, our elementary students were put into small groups, and then rotated through a variety of locations such as the bus, assembly area, “4-square”, and many others. A big thank you to Mrs. Scott’s grade 5/6 class for doing a fantastic job teaching our younger students how to be great H.A.W.K.S. in a variety of different settings. The grade 5/6’s obviously practised a lot and spent some time to make their presentations fun and engaging. Teaching our youth what good citizenship looks like (rather than telling them how “not to act”), is a big part of how we are able to create a positive culture in our school. Also, these types of opportunities help our different age groups to connect to one another in positive ways; fostering stronger relationships. Way to go HAWKS!
