We have had another successful week of learning and fun here at HSF.  If you have any questions about the content of this newsletter, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

PE Kit
 Parents are reminded that all students need to have warm clothing for outdoor PE and breaks.  We do not want anyone to be cold!

Student Council
 This week, students who were interested in being on the Student Council were asked to write a paragraph describing how they could add value to the group.  Each student also had to interview with the Principal do discuss their interest in the position.  Members of the Student Council will be announced at our assembly on Monday.

Dear HSF Parents,

58423_plain

It has come to my attention that some parents are driving too fast in the compound!  Parents are concerned that we will end up with a child hurt or worse. 

Please drive slowly in the compound!!! 

 
Parent Volunteers in the Library

It seems that some parents missed our meeting for parents who wanted to volunteer in the library after school.  There will be another meeting for anyone interested on Monday @3:30 pm in the library.  See you there!

Students have 4 days away from school beginning tomorrow.  That does not mean that learning is put on hold!!!  All students are expected to READ everyday at home.  Parents should discuss with your child what they are reading and help them if needed. 

“Readers are Leaders!”

Have a safe and productive long weekend!

Dear HSF Parents,

 

We have had an exciting week at HFS and we are pleased to share with you what new and interesting things we have been doing. 

 

Dress Up Day

6. Dress Up Day-2

7. Dress Up Day-3

This was a huge success and fun was had by everyone.  The children dressed in their favourite costumes and began the day by touring the classrooms and offices in school.  Then we paraded as a school out in the community showing everyone what we were doing.  Students particularly enjoyed having their picture taken with the Police Chief off campus.  We returned from our parade to a picnic organized by the PTA.

Thank you to everyone involved in making this day a tremendous success!

 

Library Volunteers

We would like to thank Mrs. Psarros and Mrs. Davis for volunteering in the library on Monday and Thursday afternoons.  The library will now be open for students to return and take out books, read and use the new computers in the library after school. 

Library hours are:

Monday and Thursday-3:30 pm-4:15 pm.

Parents are welcome and feel free to bring your children! 

 

Coffee with the Principal

8. Coffe Morning with Principal

We had a nice time chatting and having a snack together after students went to class.  This is a time where we can all get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere. We will continue this, “Coffee Morning,” on a monthly basis. 

 

Healthy Food, Healthy Future!

It has come to our attention that some of the students have had soda, energy drinks and gum in their lunches.  Please……our students need only healthy fuel to keep them energized.  No unhealthy food or drinks should be sent to school.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Healthy Food, Healthy Future!
