Hilson's Little Library located in the Grand Hall
Hilson's Youth in Action club has created a Little Library in the Grand Hall. The idea to create an ongoing book exchange within the Hilson community. Families that are interested are welcome to donate a book to the Little Library and their child is welcome to then take a book of their choice. Kinder families can partake in this initiative on their own during drop off or pick up or they can send a book in with their child with a note in their Communication book and educators can assist them in participating.
Mafolo African Music and Songs workshops
We are happy to have Wise Atangana join us for two African Music and Songs workshops on May 24th and 25th. He has worked with Madame Raquel for the last two years helping her Junior students write songs in French in songwriting workshops. Each Kinder class will enjoy a workshop in their own classroom environment.
Please send a note via Communication books to your homeroom team to let us know if you are willing to make some playdough for your child's class. Thanks!
Sunscreen and a Sun hat - This week's forecast is looking a bit more promising
Both the Kinder and play structure yards have very little shade and a lot of direct sunlight. For families with children who burn easily, we suggest applying sunscreen to your child prior to sending them to school. Parents can also send to school some sunscreen for their child to reapply prior to outdoor play. Please take the time to show your child how to apply sunscreen to themselves, explaining that a little goes a long way. Spray sunscreens with pumps are allowed but please no aerosol spray cans. All students should bring a sun hat to school.
