Earth Day was on Friday! It’s very exciting around school these days as our classes get ready for the Celebration of Learning night on May 5. Quite a few classes are working on projects that have to do with the environment. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been learning this year! Make sure to stop by the library that night too- I am planning to have some book-related selfie props for you to take some pictures with your family in the library, as well as some DIY bookmark-making materials- lots of fun!
Easter weekend is over, but the reading and the learning doesn’t stop! Here are some great recommendations to continue to help your child learn more about Jesus’ death and resurrection or just to extend the fun of the holiday a little longer. I especially love these diverse book lists.
I am launching a new version of the HHCS Honours Reader program! Some of you might remember this program from a few years ago. The new program will replace the format of the old one. It will have categories to work on such as classics and modern classics, various genres, and diverse books. Students who complete this challenge before they graduate will receive a special HHCS seal. If you like reading, would like to learn more about the world around you, and would like to earn an HHCS seal for your efforts, then go to Google Classroom and click on the plus+ sign button on the top right to add a class and enter this code qru34nw. You will see all the categories with further instructions there.
Bruce the Moose visited HHCS for his birthday on Friday! Here are some pictures of him hanging out in the library.
April is poetry month! Mrs. Weening and I are planning a combination Speechfest/Poetryfest to take place coming up in May. Your child can check with their homeroom teacher for details. In the meantime, here are some resources for how to have more poetry in your children’s lives.
This Monday at HHCS we celebrated World Autism Awareness and Acceptance Day. We talked to the students about our wonderful neurodiverse brains, about qualities and difficulties of autism, and about accepting and celebrating our similarities and differences. Enjoy these resources!
