Repect ED - Day of Pink

Day of Pink T-Shirt Orders:

The Canadian Red Cross, The Roughriders, and many other companies are the sponsors of the Red Cross Day of Pink, and they believe that every child should be treated with respect, and so does W.S. Hawrylak School. This means that we take a stand against bullying every day. Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017 is the Red Cross’ Day of Pink, to celebrate, respect and to encourage others to join the movement. Because we are away on February 22nd due to the break, W.S. Hawrylak will be holding their Day of Pink on February 16th.


Some classrooms have expressed interest in purchasing a day of pink t-shirt for $8 from the Red Cross, to show our support against bullying.

This is an OPTIONAL purchase, but we thought that we would invite those that are interested in participating.

If you are paying online, your child must bring back their order form to school. Without the paper copy, any payments online will be refunded. - Order forms will be made availale soon!

Quantities are limited, so we need to get our order in as quickly as possible. Therefore, NO LATE ORDERS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

WS Hawrylak School Device Policy

Ecole W.S. Hawrylak School recognizes the fact that many students carry electronic devices on them at all times and for a variety of reasons. Our school supports a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment that contributes to enhancing student learning opportunities.  This year our technology committee with input from staff, students and parents has put together a policy to help guide technology use wihin the school to ensure that it respects the learning and safety of all students and staff.  Please read the attached policy as it will be communicated to students and posted in classrooms in the new year. 

Please Do Not Idle Vehicles in the Bus Bay

We are asking our community to be aware of the no idle signs posted in our bus bay and to please turn off your vehicles whenever possible. The busses will be doing the same.  Unfortunately, our fresh air intakes are the stacks you see outisde the front of the school drawing in exhaust which in turn gets vented throughout the school and is causing health concerns for both staff and students.  As this is the design of the building, the best solution is for everyone to be aware of this and to make every effort to turn your vehicle off if you are stopped in front of these air intakes.  We appreciate your support in keeping our school air fresh for staff and students.

W.S Hawrylak HSCC is excited to host fun lunches on the following dates:


Thursday Dec 1, 2016 – DQ

Friday March 10, 2017 – Domino’s Pizza and Booster Juice

Thursday June 8, 2017 – Quiznos and TCBY


The use of the website was a great success last year. As a result, the W.S Hawrylak HSCC will continue to use this website for ordering and processing of all fun lunches. Cash payments will not be accepted for any fun lunch orders.


Please go to where you will be able to create an account, view all upcoming special lunches, place an order for all dates or just one at a time, and pay online. For families that already have an account, once you log in you will need to once again add your child(ren) and choose the correct classroom teacher prior to placing an order. Orders can be placed online until 5 days prior to the dates listed above as this is the cut-off that the website uses to close orders.
