The Morinville Community High School (MCHS) Religion 15/25 class came up with the idea of a bike-a-thon event. The fundraiser took place from Thursday at noon until Friday at noon.

On Wednesday the CWL (Catholic Women’s League) sponsored and helped serve the HOWLS lunch for over 190 MCHS students. The HOWLS (Honor, Ownership, Welcoming, Leadership, Safety) lunch is something the school does every month to recognize students behaving in a positive manner. Some of the staff and students were wearing hats for Hats On! For Mental Health Day. Each May, Albertans are invited to wear a hat to raise awareness of the importance of good mental health. Participating schools relax the hat rules and encourage students and teachers to build understanding by wearing hats to school.
