Student Conference Day On Thursday, May 4th, Wheatland Crossing School will be hosting our “Empowering our Youth” Student Conference Day. This is a full day event for all students from kindergarten to grade 12. The students will be given the unique opportunity to see several speakers, entertainers and experts presenting on various educational topics throughout the day. Sessions focus on motivation, goal setting, making positive choices, team building, health and wellness, fitness, technology and the arts. Lunch will also be provided for all students. We look forward to a day full of unique learning opportunities, enthusiasm and coyote pride! Wheatland Crossing School would like to thank the Educational Partnership Foundation and the School Council for helping make this day possible.
Playground Installation: Volunteers still needed We need your help! Friends of Wheatland Crossing have worked hard to raise funds for a brand new playground and are ready to go! We will be installing the playground from May 9-13. If you can volunteer for a day, a part of the day or a few days, please let us know. Volunteers are vital to having a successful playground install. Each day we need 38 volunteers to do a variety of tasks. Not all will be manual labour and we need as many people there as possible. Sign up by going to our website for the link!

30 Hour Famine On May 12th our grade 8-12 students have been invited to participate in our annual World Vision 30 Hour Famine to raise money to help alleviate hunger and support food security in developing nations. Our goal is to raise $1500 through our event, which will see students and staff not only give up food, but also our handheld technology for 30 hours in support of our cause. If you would like to support our efforts or sponsor a student, donations can be made online to https://wv.donordrive.com/team/5194, by cheque (made out to Wheatland Crossing School) or cash submitted to the office or Mr. McKeen. All donations over $15 will receive a tax receipt. Thank you for your support of our students as they engage in active global citizenship.
