I trust that you had an enjoyable mid-week holiday. The weather was pleasant and It was a perfect day to be out and about in Ulsan. This being a short week means that there are only a few items to mention in this week’s newsletter.
PTA Meeting on Monday 14 October
We will have our next monthly PTA meeting on Monday 14 October at 3:35 pm. The PTA is a vital part of every well-run school and it is important for parents to be involved in the events and functioning of our school. Please join us on Monday at 3:35 pm in the HFS cafeteria if you would like to be a part of this ongoing initiative, I look forward to seeing you there.
HFS Global Warming Committee Clean-up
It brings me great joy to report on the efforts being made by our HFS Global Warming Committee in caring for the environment. The committee is a student initiative inspired by the efforts of activists such as Greta Thunberg who aim to do whatever they can to look after our environment. Yesterday the HFS students took a walk to the Myeongdeok Reservoir across from our school and worked hard cleaning up litter from around the area. Even this small action is significant in caring for our environment. I will keep you posted as to their future ideas and projects. Well Done HFS Global Warming Committee!
Trunk or Treat event on Sunday 27 October
If you would like to celebrate the popular holiday in October in a fun way, consider the 2019 Trunk or Treat event that is being organised by the coordinators of the WeHope charity group. The idea of trunk or treat involves a community coming together in a parking lot and decorating their cars in the spirit of the holiday so that children can trick-or-treat out of the decorated trunks of their cars. Children can dress-up, play around and trick or treat in safety. The 2019 Trunk-or-Treat will be on Sunday 27 October at Tongmyong University in Yongdang-Dong. Families who are interested in participating should inform Brian Girolametto by emailing him at Bgirolametto@hotmail.com. Anyone participating should arrive between 4:00 and 4:30 pm to have their car setup and stationary so that trick or treating can begin at 5:00 pm. It promises to be a fun event.
Parking Beyond Allotted Time at Hanmaeum Center
I must remind all parents who park at the Hanmaeum center square to drop-off and collect their child : the time period when our parents are allowed to park their car in the area is strictly between 08:30-09:30 am and 3:00-5:00 pm. The Hanmaeum center has generously extended this courtesy to us. Please do not park your car in the square outside of these allotted times, thank you.
Finally, thank you to all the parents who have generously donated sweets and candy toward our own Scary Dress-up Day event set to take place on Friday 25 October. The students are sure to be overwhelmed by the delicious treats in their candy packets. That is all for this week. Thank you for your continued support and do have a wonderful weekend.
