Grandparent Reading – Looking for you!

Our Grandparent Reading Program is very important for our young learners. This program is run by generous individuals of the community who love children and want to help them learn!

The program runs every second Thursday of the month from 8:30am – Noon. The Grandparents get to read to the Kindergartens, Grade 1,2’s and 3’s. They also get to enjoy a complimentary afternoon tea & treats along with getting to know the other wonderful volunteers. Our kids look forward to this time with their Grandparents and grow quite the bond with them, as do the Grandparents!

We are looking for some brand new faces who would like to get involved in this one of a kind program at Hillhurst Elementary school! Please pass this message on to any “Grandparents” that you think would enjoy this program. Please see Grandparent Reading volunteers needed poster.

Welcome Back to School September 4

The Hillhurst School Council warmly welcomes new and returning students and families back to school on Tuesday, September 4. Be sure to stop by the Welcome Hut just outside the front doors for a breakfast snack and a beverage. This is a great way to re-connect or meet other Hillhurst School parents, ask questions, and find out what activities and volunteer opportunities are available through our Council and School Society for the 2018-19 school year. Hope to see you then!
