Week in Review & Upcoming Events

Good afternoon Mary Honeywell community,

With the arrival of summer, we are fortunate to experience warm temperatures that invite outdoor activities and fun. However, it is crucial to ensure the well-being and safety of our students during this time. We kindly request parents to ensure that their children are dressed appropriately for the weather, with lightweight and breathable clothing that provides adequate coverage. Wearing hats and sunglasses can also help protect against the sun's rays. In addition to dressing appropriately, we encourage parents to apply sunscreen on their children before they arrive at school and remind students to carry a small bottle of sunscreen for reapplication throughout the day. By taking these simple yet essential steps, we can protect our students from the harmful effects of the sun and promote a healthy and enjoyable learning environment.

Ottawa Race Weekend 

We are delighted to share the fantastic news of our students' remarkable achievements at the recent Ottawa Race Weekend held last Sunday. It was a momentous event where our students showcased their talent, determination, and exemplary sportsmanship. The race weekend brought together participants from various schools and communities, providing an excellent opportunity for our students to excel and represent our school with pride. We would like to thank Mrs. Evans for her dedication to this event. She was a big part of its great success. 


We are looking forward to having our new year 1 Kindergarten students join our MHES community in September! We have planned a special Welcome to Kinder event to give your children an opportunity to meet their future classmates, and some of our Kindergarten team educators, and visit a Kindergarten classroom together. As a parent, you will be able to get answers to all of your questions and receive important information to be ready for your child's first day of school. More information to come soon: mark your calendar for Tuesday, June 20th, 12:15pm-1:15 pm (rain date Thursday, June 22nd).  A save the date will be sent separately to all of our 2023-24 kinder families next week. 

Save the Date 

Our grade 6 leaving ceremony will take place on June 27th at 9:00 am. Each graduate may bring up to 2 guests to attend the ceremony.
