Another busy month is coming to a close at HH.
Last week we celebrated Earth Week. We had activities throughout the week culminating in a school-wide walk to Devonian Beach on Friday, April 22. We collecting garbage and sorting recyclable and regular garbage found on our walk. We are part of the CTV sponsored clean up that happens for Earth Day. Thank you to the sponsors who provide gloves and bags for students! A big thank you to local scientists Andy MacKinnon and Kem Luther who came and talked to us about the Biodiversity day that happens next Saturday, April 30th. A notice was sent home for families regarding that local event.
Another exciting event this month is the visit from the Vancouver Island Raptors Society. They will be bringing their hawks to visit the Hans Helgesen Hawks on April 28 for the day! You are welcome to attend! Check with your child’s teacher to see what time their session with the hawks is happening.
We have Groove Dance Club and Mini Mudders happening this month as well. Information is in the office for these after school classes.
A local instructor of the “Home Alone” program is also generously offering a class to teach students safety in the home when they’re alone. Students must be 9 years old at the time of the class which is being held from 2:45 to 5:30 on April 27. This course is discounted by almost half of what you would pay through a Parks and Rec Program.
More information regarding May events will follow soon. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
