Principal's Message

December 2018

​The month of November was a very busy one and it certainly couldn’t have been possible without the support of Highwood School parents.  Thank you for your generosity in donating to VETS Canada, a non-profit organization that supports veterans and their families.  We raised over $900!  Thank you to all of the students who put together a very touching assembly, honouring those that fought for our freedom and reminding us that peace and love starts with us. 
Parent volunteers were also extremely appreciated during our many fieldtrips, K-2 swimming, and Grade One Open Minds School at Telus Spark.  We like to offer these rich learning opportunities for our students, but it can only be possible with dedicated parent volunteers who are willing to give up their time to support the students and teachers.  November was also our school’s cheque writing campaign where we raised over $7000.  Given the realities of our current economic times, we are very appreciative of every dollar that was donated to the school.  Please be assured that all of the money goes towards students and supporting student events, learning, and needs.
As we enter into December, we continue to ask Highwood students and families to give to those in need.  We are doing things a bit differently this year, but are still continuing to support The Mustard Seed with the “Warm Feet for the Street” campaign and The Calgary Food Band with The Mayor’s Food Drive.  We will be doing a reverse advent calendar!  Every day, students will be asked to bring one specific item to donate.  With all of the items collected, it will either be donated to the food bank or put together to create stuffed socks for the Mustard Seed.  A reminder that with toiletry items, small travel size would be preferable so that they can be stuffed into socks.  We encourage you to donate what you can.  Bins will be set up in the main hallway, so students are welcome to donate items even after the day has passed.
The donation schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, December 5: soup (cans, cartons, or dry packs of soup)
Thursday, December 6: dry pasta, noodles, rice, Mac and Cheese
Monday, December 10: toothpaste and/or toothbrushes
Tuesday, December 11: soap
Wednesday, December 12: socks (all ages, all sizes)
Thursday, December 13: toiletry items (brush, comb, razors, lip balm, small tissue packages, band-aids, lotion)
Friday, December 14: shampoo and/or conditioner
Monday, December 17: canned meat, fish, beans
Tuesday, December 18: canned fruit and vegetables
Wednesday, December 19: any food item!!!
A reminder that report cards will be distributed on December 14th and parent teacher conferences will be on December 20th and 21st.  Students are on winter break from December 22nd to January 6th, with school resuming on January 7th.
Happy Holidays!  Wishing you and your family health and happiness.
Christine Cheung
Principal, Highwood School
