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!
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.
