The school bell rings at 8:45, please ensure students arrive on-time.
Dear Parents / Guardians,
It’s hard to believe that our school year is almost done. We have a very exciting but busy month here at HGS – Track 'n' Field, Annual HGS Picnic Day June 11 at Kildonan Park, Knights of Columbus Track Meet in June, and so much more! Please check out the calendar in this newsletter and the school calendar on our school website for more activities.
May is here which brings us warm weather and summer clothing! We hope to see all of you for our Family Picnic Day on Saturday, June 11 from 12:30 - 4:30. Bring your blanket, energy and family! Order forms will be sent home towards the end of May. It’s going to be fun!
Some very exciting news, Holy Ghost School has been approved to build a playground!!!! We have placed the order for the new structure and it will take approximately 4-6 weeks for delivery. I am hopeful, but not certain that it will be installed this school year. Fingers crossed!
In regards to our Morning Drop-off Zone, I would like to encourage our families to use it. As of now, we get an intake of approximately 30 vehicles. This procedure was implemented to improve the safety of our students. We have noticed that families are preferring to drop off their children on Selkirk, which is a very high traffic area and the risk of an accident is higher.
On another note, I would like to take a moment to remind families about a couple of safety concerns. Children should not be arriving at the school before 8:30 a.m. due to no supervision being available. Supervision begins at 8:30 a.m. If they arrive prior to 8:30, they will be required to be in the Before School Program. When the children arrive at the school, they should head directly to the playground unless it is raining or there are extreme weather temperatures. As mentioned in the previous newsletters, there seems to be more and more students arriving before supervision begins. Once again, please have your students at the school after 8:30 am and/or before classes begin which is at 8:45 am.
Yours in Catholic Education,
Principal: Ms. J. Siska
