I'm a BIG kid NOW!
Our SKs were super excited to join the grades 1 to 6 on the big yard last Thursday for their morning recess. They will continue to get their big kid experience this week from 10:20am-10:50am on Hilson's main yard. Each day, they are accompanied by 2 of the Kinder team educators while the JKs enjoy the Kinder yard to themselves. This allows our SKs to get a feel for what to expect in grade 1 and a chance for our JKs to establish and strengthen their own relationships without their year 2 peers.
Welcome back, Ms. Barter!
Ms. Barter has returned to work with her homeroom class (Kinder B) for the remainder of the school year (Mondays, Wednesdays & Friday, June 23rd). Ms. Gillian Rick will continue to work with Kinder A (Tuesdays, Thursdays & Friday, June 16th).
