Made in Manitoba Breakfast

Last week, Hawks were treated to a "Made in Manitoba" Breakfast & presentation.  Every item consumed was produced/grown in Manitoba - and it was delicious!

Thanks to Mrs. Kauppila for organizing this event and to all of the volunteers who made it possible.

Alice @ Wonderland!

The stage is dismantled.  The props have been returned.  But our memories of Wonderland will stick around for quite a while!

The students & staff involved with the Hedges drama production finished their final show last night and we couldn't be prouder.  Great work, everyone!

MANY more photos can be found under the "Student Leaders" tab - enjoy!

The grade 8s are participating in a variety of career related activities. They began with a matchmaker on the Career Cruising site to explore different careers. Twelve girls attended the Young Women's Conference at RRC and now all grade 8s will be going to an afternoon trip on May 12th to learn about careers. There are 6 different locations for the trip, so please look at your child's permission form carefully and return ASAP!
