Mrs. Czemeres and the school’s SADD group were very busy last week. They organized a Grim Reaper Day which had students being “whited out” to illustrate how devastating the drinking and driving statistics are. They also organized “Dangers of Drinking and Driving” awareness contests and sold Mocktails during the lunch break. The group also brought in representatives from the SGI Safety Squad to give presentations about the dangers of drinking and driving. These groups and the SADD team ended the week with an “Awareness BBQ.”
The G.F.K. Track Team attended the District Meet in Weyburn last week and Brody Slykhuis finished in 2nd place in the shot-putt event. This means he will be heading to the Provincial Meet in Saskatoon.
The Grade 10 Big Muddy Trip is scheduled for June 7 and 8. Hopefully the weather cooperates.
Grade 12 students are getting excited for their Graduation Ceremonies which are coming up on Saturday, June 16.
The Home Ec. Lab would appreciate any material scraps, or broken tape measures. We do a lot of sewing projects with these items. Thank you in advance.
The Student Council continues to sell muffins and donuts ($1 each) during the first break of each day.
