Always Caring, Always Learning, W. H. Day.
On this last day of school for 2013/2014, we’d like to say farewell to many of our students, who are moving to new schools, but especially all the best wishes to our Grade 8 students as they head off to high school.
The end of the school year also brings with it the moving on of some of our staff members. Many of them have transferred to other schools, that will bring them closer to their homes, others have been filling in for other staff as LTOs. We wish all these staff members all the best in their new endeavours and adventures. They will leave an empty spot in our W. H. Day family. All the best to Mrs. K. Kemp, Mrs. C. Blake, Mrs. J. Gardner, Miss K. Cox, Miss A. Coutts, Mrs. J. Hoogstad, and Ms. D. Pavlovich as they start a new chapter in their careers.

Just a reminder to parents that there are no more pizza days this year…..SO…..there will be no pizza tomorrow! Please send a lunch with your student. Thanks!
Mrs. Hendery’s and Mrs. Hick’s class hosted a “tres fantastique” ” Cafe Francais” in the gym Wednesday. The attendance of so many parents and granparents helped make this event a huge success. Many thanks to all the parents for their generous food contributions and to the students for their hard work in preparing for this event. Merci beaucoup!
The lights are on! But the phone system has not rebooted yet.
This is to notify parents that we currently have a power outage at the school, and in the area. We have been informed that it will be several hours before the situation can be rectified.
Our intermediate girls’ baseball team are AA champs! Another banner to add to our display in the front foyer. Well done ladies!
Our school is very pleased that we have two students entered into Young Citizen’s contest, through Canada’s History for Kids. The Young Citizens program focuses on citizenship and is a complementary component to Heritage Fairs, an annual event where students present the results of their research on Canadian heroes, legends and key events in Canadian history. Participants in the Young Citizens program make a short video about their heritage fair topic, much like an evening news report or short documentary. The student videos are posted online and reviewed by a panel of judges for a chance to win a trip to Ottawa to attend the Canada’s History Forum.
