Every year alpha celebrates English literature by having literacy week from Tuesday April 18th to Friday April 21st. Literacy week has been a tradition here at Alpha for a number of years, featuring many fun activities! The activities were hosted in the library during the lunch hour of each day, along with a scavenger hunt that lasted throughout the whole week. The activities included jeopardy, scrabble, a spelling bee, and a Shakespeare quote recitation! Students who participated were given treats and students who recited a quote from Shakespeare got cake! Students and teachers already look forward to literacy week next year.

We all know that school is a serious learning environment, but who's to say that should stop us from having some fun and showing some school spirit once in awhile! This is why Grad Council brings us spirit days where students are encouraged to dress up in themed clothing. This year we had a Western Day, Dress Like Your Teacher Day, a Throwback to Grade 7 Day, Alpha Apparel Day and of course, 90s Day.

In the afternoon of April 7th, Alpha Photojournalism’s very first school event took place. After school, a clothing swap dedicated to students who wanted to revamp their closets after spring cleaning attracted a number of students. Interested students were assigned to find several unwanted articles of clothing of their own to bring to the drama studio during lunch where Alpha’s Photojournalism team would inspect and organize them.
