Principals' Corner

Hello Marvelous Hiawatha Community School Families!

Thank you for participating in “I Love to Read” month. We appreciate all support you give your learner at home. Thanks to our wonderfully supportive PTO, every student was able to pick out a new book to bring home. In March, there will be a book exchange when students can exchange their book or books for “new to them” books. Watch for a notice later this month.

March 6th is Heritage Cultural and Literacy Night. Come join us for an evening of fun and learning.  We look forward to our 5th grade students sharing their Ethnic Heritage with our school community. What a great opportunity to have “Windows and Mirrors” into the cultures that are celebrated at Hiawatha and Howe campuses. There will be samples of food from many cultures and performers too.  Please, join us Wednesday, March 6, 5:30-7:30 at Howe campus.

Also on Wednesday, March 6, we will have our “make-up” Literacy Night at Howe Campus. Classroom teachers from both Hiawatha and Howe will be hosting parent learning and make-and-take sessions during the Heritage Night Events. Please stop in to the teacher lead sessions. These are a great way to make additional connections to student learning at home.

On March 15, both campuses will be entertained and delighted by a performance of Irish Dancers from the Mactier Academy of Irish Dance. The performance will take place at both campuses at 9:00 am.

We are in full swing of the School Budget Process. Thank you to everyone who filled out a survey. Your input is vital to our decision making as we put together the budget for next school year. We are fortunate to have such a caring, talented, creative learning community. The surveys show that our schools are places of welcome, learning, and kindness.  The Site Council will be meeting during this month to review the surveys and work to ensure we maintain a high level of learning, caring and inclusivity at Hiawatha & Howe.

 

Academically,

Principals Pang & Oldenburg
