Hey Families,

NO SCHOOL ON THE 17TH! All staff of the HRCE will be working with Dr. Sharroky Hollie.  He will be presenting on how our schools can be more culturally responsive.  Here is Dr. Hollie’s website: https://www.culturallyresponsive.org/  

Halloween Howl: Mark your calendar for the 25th. We are planning our Halloween Howl with a dance, haunted maze, and glow room.  It will cost $5 a student or $10 a family.  This is open for ALL of our families.

Self-Regulation:    Here is a short 7 min video from Dr. Shanker giving an overview of Self-regulation.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOlV_kNYAYA
We are looking at collecting feedback from parents on the best way to work on self-regulation together.  Can you please fill out the following survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PNMYGLR 

We had 2 classes out to the Milk Sports Fair last week.  This week we have the Gr 6s heading to the Aviation museum.  We always need volunteers to chaperone. Please consider getting your child abuse registry check and criminal record check done.

Rob Doublett from CBC Mainstreet was here recently to talk to Grade 1 students for a segment called Little People, Big Problems.  It aired last week.  I will send a link soon.  He is returning to talk with Grade 3 students this week.
