Time to sit back and unwind....after this very last blog post!
A HUGE thank-you to our Kinder families for your generosity and incredibly kind and touching words in the last week of school. You made our hearts sing! Our buckets were so FULL! Thank-you so very much. We have had a very memorable year!
Remind App - Reminders
For those of you returning to Kindergarten with siblings, we kindly ask that you add your incoming Kinder child's name to your user name. For example, you may list your name as Katherine (Emily & Joshua) so that both your children's names appear or simply put the child who will be coming into Kindergarten.
To all new parents, we see many new names joining our Remind Hilson Kinder Class. Welcome! We kindly ask that parents joining, list their name as follows on the app: Your name (Your child's name). Ex. Raquel Alves (Lennan) This will make it easier for educators to communicate with you over the course of the school year.
For those of you moving on to grade 1, many of our Hilson colleagues use Remind as a communication tool therefore don't delete the app from your device BUT we kindly ask that you begin to remove yourselves from the Remind Hilson Kinder class. You can do this by:
iOS App: Tap the class on the Classes screen. Then, tap the class name at the top of the screen. The final step is to click the red "Leave this class" link and confirm.
Andriod App: Tap the class on the side bar then tap the three dots on the top right of your screen. Choose Class Settings. The final step is to click the red "Leave this class" link and confirm.
Intake Envelopes are on the way!
