Grey Skies Today

Good morning Hawks,

With the light rain this morning, who knows what the day will bring us!

Please remind your child (big and small!) to dress for the weather!  It is cold and wet right now, and we will be braving the elements and heading outside at recesses.  Unless it is pouring rain, this is our classroom break where students can run around and burn off the energy spent in their desks learning.  The kids are loving it!  Well, the ones that are dressed appropriately are. 

Tuck a toque, mitts, a jacket suitable for light rain, an umbrella, etc. in the backpack just in case.  That backyard can be very windy and goes right to the bones sometimes.

Arriving as close to the bell as possible is also a good idea as we do not have supervision or let children into the building until 8:35am.

 

Thank you,

Friday Flash…a look ahead!

Good morning Hawks,

Stay dry today everyone!  If you are a walker or a driver, please come as close to the 8:50 bell as possible to reduce the number of students in the hallways etc if this rain continues.

Next week of the most Holy Week in the Catholic Church.  Our 40 days of Lent will come to a close as we relive the Passion Story and celebrate as a school the Stations of the Cross on Holy Thursday.  I would like to thank Mrs. Mikuljan and Miss Stevens for leading our school through the stations of the cross with their students.  This has been a powerful liturgy in the past and we know they will do a beautiful job virtually.

Lent is a beautiful way to remember Jesus’ sacrifice for us and prepare us for the Easter season.  It is a time for us all to look beyond what we want or need, and to find ways to meet the needs of others, like Jesus did. Our Almsgiving initiative this year is in support of the homeless and more specifically A Better Tent City.  Thank you to the families who have donated toonies (or any donation – thank you!) this week.  We will be collecting until next Thursday.

Friday Flash…a look ahead!

Good morning Hawks,

What a unique and fun week we had during March Break @ School.  Our trips around the world were a success and each afternoon the spirit was alive with staff & students dressing for our day’s destination!  

It’s hard to believe we are more than half way through March! With only 3 months left of school, there is much to teach/learn and we want everyone to #finishstrong.  Students are encouraged to keep doing their best!

To help us get through the next hump, stay tuned for our SPRING WELLNESS CHALLENGE to be introduced on Monday!

Destination Today:

Good morning Hawks,

We are off to Brazil this afternoon to take it in the sights and sounds of South America!

 

We have had an exciting week so far at Haller!  We have been celebrating our first-ever “March Break @ School” and we have had amazing trips around the world for our students!

Staff have even gotten into the March ‘madness’ fun by participating in a STEM challenge (congrats Mrs. Norman!), free throw competition (congrats Miss Murphy), announcement BINGO (congrats Mrs. Metzger, Mrs. Yake and Mr. G).

Tomorrow we will play our “Caller-In Game” where one lucky class who calls in as the 11th caller to Mrs. Hunter’s office will be given a St. Patrick’s Day trivia question to answer and win a class prize!

Stay safe Hawks!
