We are pleased to announce that 2019 kicks off the School Council's traffic safety education and awareness campaign for all students, staff and family members.

Principal's Message

hopefully we have seen the last of the very cold weather

With February coming to an end, hopefully we have seen the last of the very cold weather. A friendly reminder that unless it is bitterly cold, our students do enjoy going outdoors for recess so they need to continue coming to school dressed for the outdoors. With having had such a cold February, I would like to thank the Parent Care volunteers and School Council for providing the staff at Hidden Valley the best snacks and hot meal items during the week of Feb. 19-22. We are so appreciative to have such kind and caring parents and a sincere “merci” thank you goes out to all of you for taking such good care of us and spoiling us rotten. We love our students and we love our school and I believe I speak for all the staff when I say we also love our parents and you are the best!
February was a short and busy month and we did it up in style by having both our Pink Shirt day to put an end to bullying everywhere followed by our Carnival (Carnaval) week to learn more about and celebrate the French Canadian culture. During Carnaval, students enjoyed sports like raquette (snowshoes), curling and hockey. We had our door decorating with a Carnival theme and students enjoyed the musical group La Folklofolie. Bonhomme Carnaval paid us a special visit from Quebec and we ended the week with our “Cabane a Sucre” where the kids enjoyed making “tire” by pouring maple syrup onto crushed ice-delicious! It was a great week of activities paid for by our School Council. On that note, I would like to make a special request to all parents to consider joining School Council. We will have several positions to fill for next year and we really need your help and support to continue bringing in special events like our Carnaval week activities, planning hot lunch and spirit/snack Fridays, and organizing special events like our school community dance and our spring activity evening. Our meetings run every second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm in the Learning Commons and all parents are invited to come out and share ideas and lend a hand in continuing to support your child’s learning here at Hidden Valley School.
From now till the end of the year, School Council volunteers will be teaming up with the school staff and police services to focus on traffic safety for our kids at and around the school. Please take the time to read the School Council write up to see what has been planned for spring and how you can help out with this important initiative. Kids’ safety is all of our concern and I am excited to help educate kids about being safe and support traffic safety in the Hidden Valley area for all.
March will be a time to book your Student-Led Conferences whereby your child gives you a tour of his/her classroom and shows you what he/she has learned so far this year. When we design tasks for kids to do, we ask them three important questions: what are you doing, why are you doing it and how will you know when you are ready to move on? Students reflect on their learning to apply it in other situations in the future. Student Led Conference gives your child an opportunity to share their learning with you and reflect on how much growth they have already experienced this year. Online bookings will occur in a couple of weeks and I encourage all of you to come celebrate your child’s learning.
