And just like that it’s February! Covid continues to present us with daily operational challenges but the staff has worked hard to cover one another where needed and as a result, we have been able to continue to learn, in school, face to face. Thank you parents and guardians for continuing to follow the AHS daily checklist to identify whether or not to send your child to school or keep them home. Stay Home if Feeling Unwell: FAMILIES MUST CALL THE SCHOOL EACH DAY THAT THEY CHILD IS ABSENT! Now, more than ever, it is important that anyone feeling unwell must stay at home. Parents must use Please call or email our office to let us know EACH DAY your child will be away.

Report Cards: Report cards are quickly approaching. They will be available for viewing online in Power School on Tuesday February 1st. If you need assistance setting up your child’s Power School account so you can view the report card, please contact the office.

School Council: Thank you to all the parents who joined us for the School Council meeting last evening. We had 23 parents join us to hear the grade 2 and 3 team talk about their program. Stay tuned for the date of our next meeting. 

Olympic Athlete Visit: Canadian Olympic Ski Jumper Mackenzie Boyd-Clowes joined us virtually from his training hill in Slovenia to talk to the students about his sport. He has wanted to be an Olympic Ski Jumper since Mrs. George was his school teacher in grade two! We will all be cheering for him when he jumps in Beijing later next week. Good luck Mackenzie!

Education Matters: We would like to thank Education Matters for two grants that allowed us to purchase some valuable resources to support literacy and math learning at Douglas Harkness. Teachers are now using Math Up, a robust set of tools and resources, to support math instruction and $15,000 worth of decodable books to support literacy instruction. Thank you Education Matters! ​

Students across the CBE got up early to catch Team Canada’s last hurrah at the 2022 World Cup. It was more than just a soccer match. At Rideau Park School, students brought in items for the food bank. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/fqsAd71X4a
