Principal’s Update & Newsletter: May

Newsletter – May 2017

Dear families,

April was another busy month at Hemmingford Elementary School. Our students participated in our Community Connections program for six weeks starting at the end of March and finishing in the last week of April. A profound thank you to all of our volunteers!!

Hemmingford Elementary School participated in the NFSB Music Fest 2017. We were well represented by our choir led by Mrs. Mary Aboud. A video or the performance is available on the NFSB Youtube page.

This month, we are once again participating in Energy Cubes, part of the Grand defi Pierre Lavoie (GDPL). We have sent home our booklets, please track your progress and write it in your child’s booklet. Last year, one of our staff, Louise Trahan, participated in the GDPL and, through using the money raised and other grants, we were able to purchase 6 bike desks that are spread-out through our classes.

Lastly, the staff and students surprised me by decorating my door for Principal’s Day! My signature ties were on full display and contained wonderful messages on the back!
