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!
