Grade 9 Farewell Ceremony

The end of the year is fast approaching and F.R. Haythorne is preparing for our Grade Nine Farewell.  This year’s program is going to be fresh and unique as we have some exciting ideas in the works!  We are planning to showcase our grade nine talent during the event and will be holding auditions in the coming weeks.  We will NOT be holding a dance this year.

Join us to say farewell and good luck to our 2014/2015 grade nines on June 5, 2015.  Doors will open at 5:00 p.m.; students will assemble in the library at 5:45, and the formal ceremony will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the main gym.  Immediately following, we invite you to an informal reception to visit with family, friends and staff and enjoy some light refreshments.  There will be plenty of opportunity for pictures at this time and areas for families to interact and share in the moment.  The festivities will end at 8:30 p.m.

As in past years, we request that only two family members per student attend the ceremony due to the large number of students participating. We trust you understand that we must remain within our fire code regulated allowance for people in the gym.  You are welcome to record the ceremony if you wish to share with family and friends.  More information will come home with your student as plans are confirmed. There will be no cost to attend this function.

Hawk Film Fest 2015

It was a high spirited night at the Sherwood Park Galaxy Cinemas, hosted by M. Drozda and Will Nowak was the F. R. Haythorne Junior High School Hawk Film Fest. The audience was on the edge of their seats as multiple films with the theme ‘Stunt Double’ blasted across the screen. There were moments of heartbreak, excitement and anticipation and the 11th annual Film Fest did not disappoint. What follows is a quick summary of each of the fantastic movies that the Film students dedicated many hours to.
