Communication of Learning - Please return pg.3 & envelopes
The Kindergarten Communication of Learning went home on Wednesday, Feb.14th. Please sign off on page 3 and return it in the envelope provided. Those who wish to meet with their child's educators to discuss the Communication of Learning are to indicate that by checking off the box on the Parent's/Guardian's page. Please note there is no PD Day for interviews therefore meetings will be held before (7:30am) or after school (2:30pm).
Wet Weather Week
As the temperatures begin to get milder, the Kinder yard starts to get wet, wet, wet. Keeping your Kinder out of the puddles and wet snow is impossible. They love it! Please pack extra socks and gloves/mitts. Packing their splash pants isn't a bad idea either as their snow pants can get pretty soaked as well.
Spirit of the Dance - MASC Performance - 11am, Fri. Feb.23rd
Hilson will host an Aboriginal Experiences performance this Friday, "Spirit of the Dance". This performance celebrates the diversity of our evolving culture with vibrant performances of Pow Wow dance styles set to the "heartbeat" of the drum, concluding with a special contemporary hoop dance as well as a friendship dance.
