Student Communication - June 26

Dear Students,

 

The staff at Hillhurst School is incredibly proud of all of you. As a school community we had many great memories together including field trips, special events, projects and all the regular day to day tasks and activities that make elementary school special. Smile as you reminisce about all these positive experiences. You grew both personally and academically, and we know you will not allow the unexpectedness of the last few months to define your experience this year. You are wiser, more mature and ready for the transition to the next grade. We want to thank all of you for the resilience, versatility and understanding you demonstrated through the disappointments of the last few months. Missing out is never fun, but you persevered.  As adults, we can learn from the collective of our children and how you handled this sudden, drastic change. As Christopher Robin declared, “You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” As students, you lived this throughout the spring and this makes us very hopeful for the future. The 2019-2020 school year will be one that none of us ever forgets, but it will make us appreciate ‘normal’ more than we ever have. Take care, find the joy in the little things and don’t forget to smile.

 

See you soon,

Mr. Giffen on behalf of all Hillhurst Staff​
