Hilson's grade 6 students are hosting a Cake Walk on Tuesday, April 10th. The Cake Walk is to raise funds to help reduce the cost of the grade 6 end of year trip.
A Cake Walk is different from a bake sale. Baked goods are on display (cakes, groups of cookies/cupcakes) and students place their tickets in a container in front of the baked good they hope to win. It is like a raffle. At the end of the day, winners are drawn and the baked goods are collected to go home with winning students.
LAST DAY TO BUY TICKETS is Monday, April 9th. Tickets are 25 cents each or 5 for a $1.00. The Kinder team will then send the tickets home for parents/guardians to write: Student name, Homeroom (Kinder A or Kinder B) and phone number on each ticket. Families then cut out the tickets & send them back to school on Tuesday, April 10th for the Cake Walk.
Both Kinder classes are creating a bug hotel. The bug hotel will reside outside in Hilson's outdoor classroom. Parents can learn more about bug hotels here: https://gardentherapy.ca/build-a-bug-hotel/
Families can also help by sending in the following materials:
- Dried bamboo branches
- Dried flowers (like sunflowers)
- Hay or woodchip (like what you might put in a hamster cage)
- Small terracotta pots or pieces of broken terra cotta
April Showers Bring May Flowers
April is looking to be cooler than any of us would like. We continue to play outside for two 45 minute blocks. Our first play block is generally from 10am-11am and our second from 2-2:30pm. Please dress your child for the weather that day. Our cubbie space is very crowded and can not house extra outerwear therefore please do not send in boots or raincoats for just in case weather. Also be sure to label all your child's outdoor clothes as there are many similar styles and they often get mixed up.
April, May & June - that's only 3 months left!!
The school year tends to speed up at this time of year. April is a busy, busy, busy month in schools as it is when teachers and administrators get together to begin school organization for the following school year. If your plans for the 2018-2019 school year have changed, please contact the office to inform admin.
For any parents who have yet to register their child at Hilson for either Kindergarten or our MFI programs (gr.4 specifically), please do so sooner than later. It greatly helps in our planning for September.
Watch this space as there will be more events and important dates added to our calendar (field trips, Education Week events, volunteer appreciation tea, end of year festivities).
