Thanks to Linda Moczulski- Thompson for the following school news. We have moved down the road for those who are wondering and we are in our temporary Wheatland Crossing location. With 375 students it is a busy but exciting place to be. There is no shortage of kids and lots of names to learn and we really have filled all the available rooms in our current location and are looking forward to moving to our real location in the future. Please be sure to check the Wheatland Crossing webpage to keep current on all school activities.
On Sept. 22, we did our first Terry fox Run as Wheatland Crossing School. The amount of $1100 was raised by the students and it was matched by the Standard Lionette’s Club to make a donation of $2200 to help in cancer research. Thanks to all who ran and supported the students.
The grade 6 class went to Kananaskis Country for a two day trip. Not only did we see the beautiful fall colours but we also spent some time bonding as a whole group of 36 students. Former Hussar students Riley Armstrong, Rori Holm, Jayna Hale, Naomi Vogstad and Laura Peake along with Mrs. Moczulski participated in this fun excursion.
Many Hussar students are involved in extra-curricular activities. Cross-country running, junior boys’ volleyball, junior girls’ volleyball and some senior volleyball all have enthusiastic members. Watch for more news as the season progresses. Just a little glimpse of us; we may have moved but we still look forward to our community support.
The community would like to extend sympathy to the family of Mrs. Alice (Nielsen) Quinn who recently passed away in Calgary.
