October Message

Dear North Easthope Families:

It is hard to believe that we are already through our first month of school! Hopefully we will continue to enjoy some summer like weather as we head into Fall. We have had a fantastic beginning to the 2018-2019 school year. We have participated in our Terry Fox Walk/Run and for the 12th year in a row we have been able to donate money to the Terry Fox Foundation. This year our total donation was $285. It was wonderful to welcome so many families to our Open House as well.

As Summer turns to Fall, we are looking forward to many exciting events in October. Our grade 2-8 students have been busy practicing for Cross Country. We have many students who will be showing their talents and join schools from Huron and Perth Counties at the annual Pat Cook Run at the SERC site in Stratford on October 2nd and at the AMDSB Regional Meet on October 4th at Wildwood Conservation Area. We will be welcoming the University of Waterloo to each of our classrooms this month as part of the “Let’s Talk Science Program” and we will be hosting our 2nd Family Math Night. Parents can expect to receive a Progress Report on October 29th and follow up interviews will be held later that week.

I look forward to another great month of learning and growing with all of our students and families. Enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday with friends and family. As always, if you have any questions, concerns or celebrations please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.


Mrs. Jo Anne Knechtel
