December Message

Dear North Easthope Families:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Hinz and the students and staff who created a beautiful tribute to all those people in our past, present and future, who have stood up for the freedom that we enjoy today during our Remembrance Day ceremony. Our students are a true reflection of peacemakers in our world who allow each and every one of us to live in peace at school as well. We were also so proud to welcome 2nd Lieutenant Taso Bujouves to NEH PS. He presented to the students his role as a Peacekeeper. He also visited all of the students in their classrooms during the school day. He commented on the amazing assembly the students presented. A special thank you to all of the parents, grandparents and family members who joined us for this ceremony. Your presence and support is always greatly appreciated.

We would like to extend a thank you and congratulations to all of our student athletes who played volley ball this season. An Eagle call out also goes out to our Coaches – Ms. vanZuilen, Ms. Hutchinson, Mlle. Miller and Mrs. Wilkinson. We came away with a Gold, Silver and Bronze at the regional tournaments. Go Eagles Go!

Congratulations to Ms. Susan Browning, our Grade 1/2 teacher, for receiving a Champion of Inclusion award at the recent Coaching to Inclusion Conference held in London. Ms. Browning was chosen from nominated educators in the AMDSB.

We celebrated a Wacky Hair school Spirit Day and continued to raise funds to help others in Tanzania. We will celebrate a Red, Green and White Spirit Day in December. Thanks to the Kindness Krew and Student Council for planning these events for our students.

Our students, under the enthusiastic guidance of Mrs. Hinz, have been working very hard to prepare for our annual Holiday concert. All of our students have the opportunity to take part in this presentation. Concert dates are listed below.

Thanks again to our School Advisory Council who help to plan and fundraise for many special events at NEH PS. They will be hosting a special time – Cocoa, Cookies and Carols PJ Party- for the entire school on December 14th. Thanks in advance for any help and support that you can give to this exciting event.

As we move through December and into the holiday season, I wish you and your families a very happy holiday filled with peace, laughter, family and friends.

As always, if you have any questions, concerns or celebrations, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.

Mrs. Jo Anne Knechtel
