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!
The Farrell Creek Bus will not be available this afternoon due to mechanical issues.
We had fantastic weather for our Terry Fox Run today. We all enjoyed walking, jogging, running, and/or getting duct-taped to walls. A big thank you to Quinn for volunteering and encouraging students to raise awareness for Terry Fox, and to the Naisby’s for providing some Terry Fox T-shirts. We had a lot of students volunteer to help with this event.
Also, thank you to our RCMP members for monitoring the route. Way to go HAWKS!
Just a reminder that individual picture day is tomorrow.

Our Equine Studies class have been inviting younger students to join them at the arena. The E.S. students demonstrated some of the skills they have learned (haltering, saddling, bushing, cleaning hooves, circling, etc.). After some demonstrations, the younger students had an opportunity to give it a try themselves. Below are some pictures of the grade 3/4 classes visit.
On June 10th, our students enjoyed a great afternoon of fun and education. Students were able to participate in a variety of activities and presentations, learning about Indigenous drumming, beading, Inuit Games, Metis and Haida culture, and much more. Thank you Mrs. Paice, and to the many volunteers who provided supplies (including a teepee), and most importantly for volunteering your time and expertise!
Our first choral music class has been a wonderful success. They (accompanied by some supportive community members) provided a wonderful evening performance for parents and our community on the evening of June 10th. It was very enjoyable listening to our students perform in front of an audience. The class followed up with a performance to the entire elementary wing of the school (and many secondary students joined to listen as well). Way to go HAWKS!
