It has been a short week and as such there are few items that need mentioning in this week’s newsletter. I hope that you all had an enjoyable Foundation Day yesterday and that Typhoon Mitag did not cast too much of a dampener on your holiday.
Farewell to Cortney, Nikolay and Margarita
It was a sad day on Monday as we bid farewell to Cortney, Nikolay and Margarita. They have been at HFS for a number of years and it is always sad to see members of our HFS community leaving. We wish them and the rest of the Florovskiy and Dykes families well on the next step of their journey. Thank you for the delicious pizza farewell treat and please know that, should you wish to return, you will always have a place at HFS.
School Winter Uniform Order Forms
Thank you to all who completed and submitted the order forms for the HFS Winter Uniform. Those orders have been placed and should arrive within the next few weeks. If you did not complete an order form, please do so as soon as possible so that you may receive a winter hooded jacket before the cold sets in.
HFS Parent Teacher Association
Thank you to the parents who kindly attended our first PTA meeting of the 2019-20 school year on Monday 23 September. It was productive and many ideas were shared regarding planning for upcoming events for the rest of the school year. I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting on Monday 14 October.
Scary Dress-up Day on Friday 25 October
Thank you to all who donated sweets and candy for our upcoming scary dress-up day event that is set for Friday 25 October. Please keep the candy coming in so that we may provide the students with fantastic treat bags. Start thinking about being creative and crazy with your costumes. I have some ideas for my spooky outfit that should be scary and fun.
School Closed on 9 October for Hangeul Day
Finally, the school will be closed on 9 October to commemorate Hangeul Day (Korean Alphabet day). The holiday marks the invention and proclamation of the Korean alphabet by King Sejong in 1446 and is an important milestone in Korean culture. I hope you can all enjoy the holiday.
That is all for this week. Thank you for your continued support and do have a great weekend.
