    West Kings will be holding earth day events today.  Don't forget to wear your sweaters to keep warm all day because West Kings will be turning down the heat by 2 degrees to save energy.


    We will also be saving energy in the cafeteria at lunch by turning off the lights, and eating by candlelight. Feel free to share your photos of your blackout lunch with the hashtags found attached to the candles at each table.


    Stop by the main lobby at lunch as well to pick up a tasty earth-themed treat from the bake sale!  WORMS!


    Also, the fine arts committee will be bringing you a fun, ambient atmosphere in the cafeteria at lunch with some great WK performers. Come out and chill in the cafeteria at lunch on Friday to hear some great sets.



    Starting this afternoon, the West Kings Grad Parent Committee is holding a fundraiser to support activities for the graduates.  Order forms will go home with report cards. So, order Meat Boxes because now’s the time to get ready for BBQ season! Order from a selection of 8 meat boxes, prepared locally by Meadowbrook Meat Market.  20% of each sale will support the graduating class of 2018. Check the school website, or call the school 902-847-4440 for more information. Orders due May 1st and anyone can order.


    Our school wide cleanup has been moved to the 25th due to the weather.



    Also, this upcoming Wednesday night, April 25, from 7pm to 10pm,  WK will be holding a NEON dance. It’s an invitational dance, so if you like to invite a student from another school and there’s an invite sheet in the office to fill out. All invites must be submitted by today at 2PM. NO LATER.  We really need chaperones so staff, please if you would be so kind, sign up in the staff room. That’s for the neon Dance on Wednesday the 25th, so come on out and have some fun.


    Also on Wednesday, April 25th, at 1 pm, Noel MacDonald will be here to present scholarship info to any student planning on attending NSCC in the fall. There will be lots of tips and info on where and when to apply and what is available. That will be located in the AV room. Plan on being there if attending the NSCC is in your future. This is the session that was supposed to happen on April 10th. There will be lots of info on financial opportunities. Come on down with teacher permission.


    And guess what? On April 25th, this Wednesday, WK’s own Relay for Life team will be raising funds for cancer research.  They will be selling slushies in the lobby at recess and lunch, so help cancer research and get a frosty treat.


    For the graduates out there, here’s an event to save you money off your grad activities.  There is to be a silent auction on May 12th with the proceeds going towards your grad. If you, your parents or a local business would like to donate items or service vouchers that can be auctioned off that would be appreciated.  



    Want to attend the Gaelic Concert, which will be celebrating the Scottish-Gaelic culture of Nova Scotia? There will be performances from groups from all over the province to West Kings putting a great show for all who want to attend.  Tickets are $5.00 and are available from the office. The performance is on May 25.


    Heads up to all grads! West King’s graduate barbecue will be held on May 30th. Make sure to book the time off of work, as this is going to be a great event. It starts at 2 and is happening at a special location that is to be announced later on, so keep an ear out for details.


    Yesterday’s trivia question was on for our musical students, asking how many valves a trumpet has. The correct answer? 3!  The winner’s from yesterday were Jeremy Parisien, Matthew Priddle, Fionn Carson, Ryan Bramwell and Sophie Hunter.


    Today is friday, so it is also time for a draw! And the winner is … _Sophie HUNTER ! Go to the office to get your free lunch. Now, our basket of names to draw from is empty, so make sure to get some guesses in to get some free food.
