Dear Parents and Children

As the Olympic games and Seollal festivities approach we have gotten through a busy week in the year 1 and 1/2 classes at HFS. We were happy to hear that Hidayat is well again but we wish Rayyan and Ameer both speedy recoveries from their illnesses. They are both sorely missed by their teachers and classmates.

A number of exciting developments took place this week. Firstly, we would like to welcome Cortney and Anna to the year 1/2 class. Please greet them if you see them around the compound.

The school began their International week group projects. Each group of students from across all grades was given a particular country to research and create a presentation for the upcoming International week program. Also, the students are enjoying creating projects and organizing activities for Seollal celebrations next week. It will be a day of fun-filled festivities, we hope to see you at the school next Wednesday. The year 1/2 class has been hard at work preparing and practicing for their assembly on Monday. It is sure to be entertaining.

In regular classes we continued to look at non-fiction explanation texts as the students merged that with organizing their assembly in the year 1/2 class. Both the year 1 and 1/2 classes also rehearsed their rhyming poems to perform for the school. In Math we began to look at handling data and the students were energized as they did surveys by interviewing friends, classmates and teachers about their favorite color, fruit and Winter Olympic sport. The year 1/2 students had a great time recording their interviews on camera. Here are some videos of them conducting their interviews.


The student’s videos are being edited and will be on the class web page next week (along with a blooper reel). In IPC we continued our exploration of Olympic symbols by looking at mascots through the ages and getting the students to create a mascot for their own country using the colors of their flag.

Keep warm and have a great weekend.

Mr. Kearney and Ms. You
