Dear Parents and Guardians,


Thank you. Upon my arrival in January, I was immediately impressed by your immense support for and dedication to Hillhurst School. I was very delighted to see how many volunteers there were to support both in and out of the school. Programs like grandparent reading and fun lunch among others contribute massively to the vibrancy of this school community. I met many of you before and after school and through your generous volunteerism, and I look forward to meeting the rest of you throughout the next school year. I know that the last few months were hard. I am a parent of two elementary aged children, and so I can relate to the ups and downs that each of us faced as we endeavoured to keep positive and support our children through this most trying time. I know each of you had your own stresses and demands while you also supported your child’s learning, so, again, I thank you. We are most hopeful that we will begin September 1st with kids attending in-school classes. I look forward to seeing you again in person and continuing to learn about the Hillhurst School community. I am excited to be leading Hillhurst through whatever the 2020-2021 school year brings, and I know we can count on you for your continued support.



Chris Giffen, Principal
