Both Kinder classes really enjoyed the Saidat show last week (Wed.Dec.7th). The show was positive and energizing and very community building. It was great see both students and staff let loose and free during the dance party finale!
Parents can learn more about the Saidat show here: http://www.saidat.ca/
The messaging of the "I like Me Street" performance of lifting each other up, not down and to care, share and help one another tied in nicely with our Hilson pledge of "Treat others the way you would like to be treated." The Kinder teachers are now building on this to create stronger community in our classrooms by giving out positive stars. Students who demonstate acts of caring, sharing, helping and being a good friend are given a star to hang on our display on the wall outside the Kinder classes. The stars have their name and details their positive contribution to the Kinder community. At the end of each month, stars will go home with students.
Holiday Showcase - Please note time change!
Hilson will be having its annual Holiday Showcase on Wed. Dec.21st from 8:15am to 10am in the gym. Both Kinder A & B will be performing. Parents and family members are welcome. Please scroll down and take note of other special days during the week before the break (Elf Day and PJ & Movie Day).
Outdoor wear, extra clothes and SOCKS!
Snow, sand, snow...hopefully is it here to stay. Thanks to parents for bearing through our strange sand pit snowsuit season. It was a messy one!
Now that the snow is most likely here to stay, please be sure your child is equipped with snowpants, boots, jacket, neckwarmer, hat and mitts. Making sure everything is labelled. Independence in dressing is key to making the best use of outdoor time. Please encourage independence in this matter at home too.
Keep count of extra clothes going home, if you see that your child has had to change while at school or they have brought home wet clothes, please be sure to send an extra set back to school. Extra socks are also very helpful in helping kept wet feet dry.
