Dear Parents/Guardians:
“April showers bring May flowers” and … lots of puddles and mud!  It’s the season for rubber boots, extra socks & pants, and maybe even rain gear! For parents/guardians it often means extra laundry but... for our Foxes it is the beginning of the “end of winter” exploration and more outside time in the sunshine, as they days get longer and the sun makes more appearances!  For our Foxes and their friends & families, this spring will also mean the opportunity to take part in our Spring Fundraiser, “Make is Sow”, where members of our school community can order seed packages for  Spring garden planting Please see pg. #4 of this newsletter for more details. This fundraiser will take place April 10th to April 28th, with proceeds continuing to support the purchase of math manipulatives for every classroom in our school! When we can get our hands on math, our brains can connect to it! We thank all of you for supporting our fundraisers throughout the schoolyear! Your efforts have helped us to add to our student/classroom technology through the purchase of classroom iPads, to update our library of books, and to begin the process of equipping our students with math items to grow our numeracy connections and understanding. We could not and cannot do this without all of you! We thank you sincerely, for all that you do for all of our kids! The Fox Den is a lucky place, indeed!
Spring also means that EQAO is nearing and our EQAO testing for Grade 3 and 6 will take place between May 22nd-June 2nd. As such, we kindly ask that parents/guardians help us by avoiding the scheduling of appointment on these days (when possible) and ensure that students arrive promptly to school in the mornings (8:50 is our instruction start time each and every day!), during this two week period. When taking into account provincially reported scores it is important for the community to remember that any child not writing, counts as a 0 which is factored into our overall score. Our goal for our students is to do their best and show growth, regardless of their score, and to build skills when applying the skills learned over the entire course of the school year with their peers and teaching staff. We celebrate our diversity, inclusivity, and... each child’s unique strengths and gifts here at the Fox Den!
New this Spring, Hanover Heights Community School is now part of the BWDSB’s Cash Online Process. Where possible, all BWDSB schools are encouraged to have their community members take part in this new payment plan. Please see pg. #2 & 3 of this newsletter, to learn how to sign up and to have questions answered. If you have further questions, please call 519-364-2910 EXT: 521 to speak to our Office Manager, Mrs. Laurie Symonds.
Our Foxes (big and small) continue to implement and work at learning to apply the Fox 4R’s (being Respectful, Responsible, Reasonable, Resilient) in our Code of Conduct For All, and we thank our adult school community members for trying hard to adhere to this and modeling it for our students. Cultures of respect, problem-solving and caring grow out of the examples for behavior that we, the adults,  set and demonstrate for our children! If we act it, promote it, encourage it, practice it, and accept it… our kids… will do it!
Wishing all of our Fox families and friends are wonderful start to the Spring Season,
Mrs. Napper-Sharpe, Ms. Love & the “Fox Fantastic” Hanover Heights Staff
