Week in Review
Posted on 09/01/2021

Good afternoon MHES Community!

We have had a great week at MHES this week. Your children will have many facts to share with your regarding Terry Fox and very actively walked/ran the track this afternoon. The Fall weather is certainly upon us and we have quickly realized that warmer clothing is required. We wish all our families a great weekend and look forward to seeing everyone back on Monday.

 

Rosh Hashanah

Each fall, the Jewish community celebrates the new year, beginning with Rosh Hashanah (September 25-27, 2022) and closing with Yom Kippur (October 4-5, 2022).Shanah Tovah to all our families that are celebrating. 

Online Forms for Parents

There are 3 forms that teachers require for students. Please fill out a form for EACH child. These forms must be completed before your child can have access to a school computer.

Community Survey 

This year we are looking forward to getting to know our families and community partners. Our goal is to promote and inclusive environment that promotes a sense of belonging for our students. If you could please take a moment to complete this short survey to help serve our students, it would be greatly appreciated.

Agendas

Agendas are now available for purchase online only. They will be available at https://www.schoolcashonline.com. You will have to set up an account if you have not already done so. Teachers strongly encourage parents to purchase one for their child. The cost is $8.00 per agenda.

Mabel's Labels 

If you are planning on purchasing labels this year, please consider supporting our school by selecting Mary Honeywell  ES from the support a fundraiser option on their website: https://mabelslabels.ca/en_CA/

Student Accident Insurance

Creating a caring and safe environment for our students is our top priority. Unfortunately, despite all reasonable precautions being taken, accidents can still happen. Some injuries may result in medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial health care or employer group plans. As a parent/guardian, you become responsible for these expenses. Student accident insurance is available for purchase, on a voluntary basis, through Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada. Parents may apply online at www.insuremykids.com or call 1-800-463-5437. The OCDSB encourages all parents/guardians to consider purchasing this insurance.  The accident insurance coverage options range from $17.00/year to $33.00/year. This coverage is for the entire calendar year and also applies to accidents that occur outside of school hours.  If you have any questions, please call Binks Insurance Brokers directly at 613-226-1350.

                                                                                     

School Open House

On Thursday, September 29th from 4 pm to 6 pm, you are invited to come to the school to see your child’s classroom, meet the teacher and other MHES staff. This is an opportunity to say hi. Should you have specific questions regarding your child and their learning please reach out to your teacher to make an alternate time to have a more fulsome discussion. We look forward to having our families be able to come and visit during this time.

 

Lost and found

The lost and found bin is quite full. Items will be displayed in the lobby on open house night - September 29th between 4 pm and 6 pm. 

 

Fire Drills & Lock Downs 

Fire drills and lockdowns will be happening as a whole school this year. We are expected to do 6 fire drills and 2 lockdowns. On Thursday, we had our first fire drill and all staff and students were out of the building safely in less than 2 mins. You can help us by having discussions at home on the need for quiet, keeping our hands to ourselves, and waiting patiently for instructions. 

 

 

 

Terry Fox School Run - A message from Mme Beaumont

Thank you so much MHES community!!! We could not have asked for a better day to have our Terry Fox walk/run! We had a great time!!! A lot of smiling faces running, walking, and trying out our fitness stations (skipping, stretching, hopping on one foot, and jumping). 

Thank you so much for your generosity! We have surpassed our goal of 3000$ and will have our whole school PJ day in the near future! We definitely will have some HAPPY children!! Our school fundraising page is still open if you have not had the chance to donate and still would like to. I will do the final count on Monday! Click on the link below.
