Mid June Message

Dear North Easthope Families:

The summer like weather has finally arrived and we are enjoying as much outside time for learning as we can fit into the day. It was wonderful to see so many families at our school Bar B Q earlier this month and our volunteers at the Volunteer Tea last week. Thanks again to everyone for supporting and helping to make NEH PS a wonderful place to learn and grow.

The students have been excited to welcome Janice Danen, the Perth County Dairy Educator as well as Luke McCarroll from the Stratford Tennis Club for workshops and learning this past week. Last week we welcomed Winona Sands and Patsy Day, Indigenous Knowledge Keepers, to our school. We learned about their stories and made Indigenous crafts.

We are looking forward to our school prizes from our Jump Rope for Heart Event. We will have an extra recess, a school walk and someone will be helping me out as Principal for a Day next week. All of the students enjoyed a freezie together at the end of the event. Thanks to the school community for supporting this fundraising for Health Hearts in our community. Thanks to Mlle Miller and our student leaders for organizing this event for us. Individual prizes for students will be sent home this week.
We are also looking forward to another fun trip to the Lions Pool in Stratford for all students on Friday, June 21st. We will have an end of the year assembly on the last day of school in the gym at 9 am to celebrate our year.

A sincere thank you to all students, staff and parents for a great year of learning, setting new goals and celebrating accomplishments. I value the time that I spend with your child(ren) each day and I look forward to welcoming them back in September.
