We are still waiting for our school pictures to arrive and anticipate that they will arrive soon. The picture packages will be handed out in TAG as soon as they arrive.
Should re-takes be necessary, they are scheduled for Friday November 3rd.
Thank you for your patience while we wait for the pictures to arrive.
We know our grade seven students will become leaders of Dr. Kearney Middle School. In order to help them succeed, we had some grade seven students take a leadership role in creating an event, The Country Harvest, for their peers. Over the past month, the leadership group has met with Mrs. Gorsic during their lunch hours to plan all aspects of the event. They have created interactive activities and planned music for a dance at the Country Harvest. Students have demonstrated great commitment and learned a multitude of skills that will help them in all aspects of building a positive community.
We would like to thank the grade seven students that organized and volunteered to supervise stations during our event. Many other students/parents donated their time and made food for our bake sale to help us have more events this school year. Our staff here at Dr. Kearney have been very accommodating and also spent time with the students to help them put on the event. Thank you to everyone for a successful and very fun event. – Mr. Logan
It has been a busy month for athletics at Dr. Kearney with volleyball and cross country running in full swing. The Grade 9 girls volleyball team was in Grande Prairie for the first tournament of the year and played very well. The Grade 8 and Grade 7 girls had their first tournament of the year Thursday evening at Clearview. Both teams played exceptionally well with the Grade 7’s taking home the win! Our Grade 7 boys team have been keeping busy practicing and are excited to put their skills to test. All teams have games coming up and the schedule is posted in the gym.
The cross country runners ran in multiple races including Kin Park and Dawson Creek. All runners gave it their all and represented Dr. Kearney very well. They will be off to more races throughout October.
A huge thank you to all coaches and teacher sponsors for making this first month a success! We could not do it without you!
Basketball season is fast approaching and sign up will be happening in the next couple weeks. We are also looking for coaches who can commit to the basketball season. Please contact Ms. Davidson for more information.
