Principal’s Message-

It’s hard to believe we are already into February and that means we will soon be able to say goodbye to the cold and snow and look forward to the warmer winds and rains of spring (I am an optimist and… have my fingers and toes crossed!). It has been a true pleasure getting to know more and more of the Hanover Heights school community and I thank staff, parents/guardians and our students for making me feel so welcome and... for their patience as I continue to learn names and faces (this gets harder the older you get)!

In this month’s newsletter you will find some excellent programs being offered by our community agency partner, Keystone. These programs are directed  at supporting students and families . They are wonderful programs, are being held in our own community at the Keystone office next to our school, and best of all... they are absolutely free!

You will also note that we have again included our Hanover Heights Safety Protocols which are now in effect. Staff will be working diligently to implement and monitor these protocols so that we can work towards keeping our school community a safe community. We understand this is a transition for many parents and students and we greatly appreciate your help and support with this as we all work together to build a safe community for our amazing group of students! Should you have any questions  or require any clarification on these protocols, please do not hesitate to contact me– I would be more than happy to discuss them with you!
We would also like let our school community know of some changes that will be happening with our Breakfast Club program. Presently our Breakfast Club is run by a wonderful group of volunteers (thank you, thank you), at the northeast section of our first floor, opening prior to instructional time. Please note that effective Feb. 9th, we will be changing from a Breakfast Club format to a full fledged Breakfast Program. Bins (prepared by our lovely volunteers) will now be delivered to each classroom by our student helpers. Effective February 9th, the program will no longer be operating in the northeast hallway. By changing our program we are able to ensure that each child has the opportunity to access a nutritious morning snack. We all know that when our tummies are fed, our brains, bodies and souls are nourished allowing us to learn and play at our best!
This change also ensures that our hallways are slip and congestion free, ensuring student safety, as well as helping to maintain our Safety Protocols. In keeping with this, all doors will be locked (except for our main office entrance) and are accessible only to students and staff exiting and entering during entry (students only please), dismissal (students will meet parents outside of the school yard gate not in the yard (unless Kindergarten), and during recess and physical education times.

Change is tough but working together we can focus on the positive for all of our children. “Change can be hardest at the beginning, messiest in the middle, but is the best at the end!" ~R. Sharma
