Another week has passed for Westisle Composite High School, with the year going smoothly already. Many events are still approaching, and can be found listed below.
Meet the Teacher/Parent Night
The school’s first Meet the Teacher/Parent Night will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 24, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Parents will meet up with administration until 7 p.m., they will attend four shortened classes. Following this will be a short Parents’ council meeting.
There will also be parent information sessions on the evening of Meet the Teacher held by the school’s Guidance Department, with a Grade 12 session from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and a Grade 11 session from 6 to 6:30 p.m. These sessions focus on post-secondary information and how to handle the transition out of high school.
Terry Fox Run
The school’s annual Terry Fox Run still lands on Friday, Sept. 27. All students and staff will be participating, and the school has been working hard to earn money for the cause. The day will start with regular classes, a combined lunch, and the walk/run immediately following this.
The school would like to welcome its two fourth-year student nurses, Danielle Perry and Maria LeClair. These nurses will be staying with us on placement until the end of November, and will surely be kept busy.
Heckberts will be taking graduation photos until the 24th with a $20 sitting fee. Lifetouch Canada will be available to take photos on Oct. 2 for Student IDs. It is suggested to at least get a proof done with Heckberts, costing $20, to be included in the school’s composite frame and yearbook.
The previous week’s themes went over very well, and were enjoyed by the vast majority of students. On Thursday, Sept. 19, Westisle had an inspirational speaker named Phil Boyte visit. The school would like to thank him for joining us and giving us his time.
Join us for the Wishmaker Walk for Wishes, run by The Children’s Wish Foundation. On Saturday, Oct. 19, come to any of the following locations to participate: Charlottown, Summerside, Tignish, North Rustico, and Montague. If interested, please contact either (902) 566-5226, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Prince Edward Island Chapter is currently working on granting 11 wishes for Island children.
Monday, Oct. 14 lands on Thanksgiving Day, meaning there will be no classes. The annual CUPE and PEITF Conventions land on Oct. 17 and 18, with no classes on these days as well.
