The grade 10’s are so excited for the snow to arrive! Ok, maybe excited is the wrong word, but there are definitely some strong emotions. The snow is making it easier to focus on their studies, though. For instance, in English, they’re studying Challenges. Workplace Math 10 has them doing unit conversions for temperature and mass. Wildlife Management is currently focused on wilderness survival, trapping and hunting. The kids are having tons of fun in Wellness playing Basketball. Next week’s meal in Commercial Cooking is Lasagna. In IA, they’re still focused on cabinetmaking. And in science, they’ve just started Chemistry!
Have a great November!
The Hanley Saber Football team had another exceptional season this fall finishing the year with an 8 win 1 loss record, losing in a barn-burner of a provincial semi-final game 74-64 to a talented Lemberg team. The Sabers would like to again thank the communities of Hanley, Dundurn and surrounding areas for the incredible support that was demonstrated throughout the season.
The team would like to congratulate our graduating players on their success this year and thank them for their contributions to the club over their years with the team. They are: Dion, Michael, John, Jae, Joel, Kody, and Kirk.
We would like to thank everyone who helped with the upgrades to the field this year – the completed clubhouse and new bleachers and scoreboard: The Saskatchewan Roughriders, James and Marie Mann, Mike Prosofsky, Kaleb Freeden, Ryan Grindheim, Derek Libke, Troy Haroldson, Elance Steel, Darice Carlson and the town of Hanley.
Also, a huge thank you to our parents who have volunteered and helped out wherever needed (and especially Lisa Ashdown for coordinating the concession booth)!!
SEE YOU ON THE FIELD IN THE FALL OF 2014!!
The year is off in full swing and we are busier than ever. In English/History we are studying the start of WWI. In Physics, we are have just begun the Waves Unit, and studying the properties of waves. In Health Science, are learning about different body systems with our focus being on the skeletal and muscular system. In Phys. Ed., we are going outside to play games, as long as the weather holds. The grade 11’s are also working on personal fitness in the weight room and using online activities. Finally, the class is just finishing their first volunteer assignment and is looking for volunteer opportunities so that they can provide 5 hours of service each to the community during this term. Lastly in robotics we are building and testing circuits.
The Grade 12 class has been reading Three Day Road in ELA/ Social Studies, which incorporates both First Nations culture and Canadian history.. We are finishing off the first unit in Pre-Calculus, in which encompasses all three of the first chapters. In Chemistry, we are studying thermodynamics, as well as applying it to some cool heat related labs. In Home Ec, the photography and budgeting units have been wrapped up and we are all excited for our personal projects, as well as some Halloween themed events. This, our final year, has been a blast thus far.
We’re all very excited for what else this academic year has to offer. – Anita
