Extra Clothes & Indoor Shoes
In an effort to prep the cubbie area for a good clean up over the break, most Kinder students were sent home with their extra clothes and indoor shoes. This also provided parents the opportunity to check and see if the extra clothes and shoes still fit their child. Please be sure to send indoor shoes to school this week as well as a ziplock bag with: a couple of pairs of socks, underwear, pants/leggings and a shirt. Extra clothes are not just for toileting accidents but for lunch/snack time spills, overzealous water table play and outdoor puddle/wet snow play. They help keep students comfortable at school and are much appreciated by staff and students when needed.

School Council Chocolate Fundraiser - all of April
A letter from the School Council went home prior to the March break informing parents of Hilson's upcoming Laura Secord chocolate fundraiser. Participating families will receive a box of chocolates to sell on behalf of the school over the course of the month of April. Families who would rather NOT sell any chocolates are to send in the letter indicating that they are choosing NOT to participate. No news equals participation therefore please communicate with your homeroom team if you do not want to sell chocolate. If you can not find the letter in question, please write to your child's homeroom teacher in the communication book or through the Remind app.
The chocolate fundraiser proved to be a HUGE success last year for our School Council. A BIG THANK-YOU to all the families who do choose to participate in this endeavor.
