MHES Week in Review Dec.10-Dec.14

Thanks to everyone who organized, volunteered, presented and attended our Best of Season celebration and Holiday Gift Shop. It was wonderful to see so many families enjoy the festivities and smiling faces!


Thank you for helping us in keeping our Entry/Dismissal areas safe and efficient! Parents are using the small drop-off loop at the east-end of the school by the Canadian flag and not driving past the loop to drop off or park as staff is safely unloading students from our ASD program. We truly appreciate your efforts in keeping the parking lot as safe as possible A gentle reminder to please do not use the bus lane or the Barrhaven Child Care centre parking lot as this is not our property. There have been multiple reports of close calls involving cars and students in this parking lot. Please know that this is not our property nor is it a safe drop-off/pick up area for our students. Thanks for your cooperation.


There has been an increase in the cases of head lice. It is extremely important that parents notify their child's teacher if they have head lice. We will send out a notice to the classroom to alert you of this fact. The child will not be excluded from attending school but it is important that they are treated to reduce the spread of lice. Here is a helpful link for more information:


If you need to sign in/out your child during school hours, please ensure you notify the teacher and the office (by phone or by our attendance line) in advance when possible. The office can be a busy place and it can take some time to locate your child if the time falls between our recess times (10:50am-11:15am and 1:35pm-2:00pm). Additionally, we do our best to avoid instructional time disruptions as much as possible. We are asking that parents not be in the hallways during instructional time (8:30am-3:00pm). If you are picking up your child throughout the day, please sign them out at the office and wait in the foyer. Many thanks!


Our Holiday assembly will take place on Friday December 21st at 8:45am. All are welcome!


We would like to wish our Girls and Boys Bordenball teams every success. Our girls’ team plays next Tuesday and our boys’ team plays on Wednesday with both tournaments being held at Adrienne Clarkson Elementary School. Go Honeywell Go!


Primary Math Question of the Week

Use tape to make a line. Place blocks or lego on one side of the line and get your child to place the same block/lego as a mirror image on the other side of the line. For an added challenge try adding another line of symmetry. Making symmetrical designs develops your child's spatial awareness and is a quiet, calm activity to try before the holidays!


Dates to Remember:   

December 21               -last day of school before the holiday break

January 7                     -first day back to school

January 25                   -PD day, no school for students
