Jr. Girls’ Volleyball- Team played at St. Francis across town on Wednesday the 24. They lost 30-17 to St. Francis, 30-20 to the Koinonia Christian School and then defeated Kinuso 30-28 in a real nail-biter!! Congrats Girls!  All the best in High Prairie on the 27th in your weekend tournament. See next week’s addition for scores. Thanks to Coach Butcher for supporting our Jr. Girls this year – without you volunteering, there would be no team.
Sr. Girls’ Volleyball- team travelled to Mayerthorpe for a tournament last weekend. The girls lost all of their matches but gained some real valuable game experience in the process. Unfortunately, their trip to Hinton has been cancelled. Thanks again to Miss Fish for Coaching the Sr. squad this year – much appreciated!
Cross-Country Running Team travelled to Vermillion for their Provincial competition last Saturday. No medals were won but the team represented our school proudly and had a bunch of fun running through the mud and trees which is typical for the cross-country tracks. We were Kenya Ross, Zoe Lightening – Fillion, Jaydyn Bar, Robert Roe, Ty Kubel and Harrison Wolters. Congratulations to our Running RAMS!
Wrestling – Tryouts are on November 15 in the Sr. high gym for both Jr. and Sr. high males and females. Bring gym clothes, water bottle and a great attitude. Tryouts go from 3:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Student Recognition:

Each week, dozens of students are nominated for this award around our building. They get nominated for kind deeds, great academic efforts and results, acts of citizenship and leadership. The list is read aloud throughout the school to recognize all nominees and then a random draw determines our weekly winner. Congratulations to last week’s winner Jackson Whyte!

Karios Blanket Exercises:

Our HPSD Indigenous Support Coaches, along with the assistance of an Elder, delivered two exercises to our high school Social Studies classes in the senior high gym. Thanks to all the folks who helped with these events! Our students will benefit greatly from these teachings.
