This is a message from Mrs. Blanchard, Principal at Hampton Elementary School. Here is your weekly edition of the HES Hawk Squawk.
 
JUMP ROPE FOR HEART: Our Jump money has been tallied and we have surpassed our goal with over $4700 raised for the Heart and Stroke Foundation!
 
Hot Lunch Orders for JUNE: A reminder all hot lunch orders are due online by Sunday!
 
Milk Orders: Our last day for milk was scheduled to be Friday, June 15th, however, due to the three days of school closures we are extending the milk into the last week of school to replace the days missed. If your child’s class is away on a field trip the last week of school, they may opt to receive their milk on a different day that week.
 
Staff Update: We welcome back Mrs. Long to Grade 4 this coming week. Miss. Palmer will be in the classroom on Tuesday to support a smooth transition back. We wish Miss Palmer well and hope we will still see her in her role as supply teacher for Anglophone South. Miss Reay is continuing to replace Mrs. Hill in Music and choir.
 
Grade 4 Provincial Assessments: Due to the flood school closures, our students have been granted a one week extension and therefore will begin on Monday, May 28th. Students will be assessed in the areas of reading, math and science. Students should be well rested, have a good breakfast, nutritious snacks for school and of course, water!
 
PJ Day for Juvenile Diabetes: At Hampton Elementary we will be having a day to support Juvenile Diabetes suggested by one of our students who is living with T1D. On May 25th, students will be permitted to wear their PJ’s and we will be accepting donations for the JDRF organization. Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. Unlike type 2 diabetes, T1D is not linked to being overweight, lack of exercise or other lifestyle factors. It is not preventable and its cause is unknown.
 
“I Read, We Read, H.E.S. Reads!” Did you know there are only 4 Fridays left before the end of the school year? At H.E.S we would like to unite with families and the community to boost students’ reading skills. Each Friday, you are welcome to join us from 8:15a.m. until 8:45a.m. to listen to our students reading. Reading aloud helps build fluency, improves comprehension and helps develop critical reasoning. The reader is more invested in the process and is more likely to think about what he or she is saying while reading. More importantly, reading aloud builds reading confidence!
 
Home and School Reminders:
1, Hot lunch orders are due on the 20th of each month. If you are paying by etransfer, you may still squeeze in your order by Sunday.
2. Big Fair Day – we are currently collecting items for classroom baskets as part of our fundraiser. The baskets are looking great and tickets to purchase will be sent home soon!
3. Donations for Big Fair Day – we are always looking for people to volunteer their time for Big Fair Day, but for those who are unable to do so, we suggest helping with donations. Items requested include: water, juice, prizes (dollar store items, trinket type items, loot bag prizes etc).
 
Please find below a message from Ms. Watson, Office of the Superintendent regarding Wednesday, June 6th: this day will be a half day for students as the afternoon will be allocated to June Report Card preparation at the K-8 level.
 
Our weekly Hawk Squawk is always posted on our school website under the Synrevoice tab!

This is a message from Mrs. Blanchard, Principal at Hampton Elementary School. Here is your weekly edition of the HES Hawk Squawk. We were very thankful to be allowed to open our school today.

Our Grade 4 students (and some Grade 3 classes) are partnering with the Hammond River Angling Association to create a “Pollination Station” Butterfly Garden on site beginning Thursday with in class lessons. Students will be discussing the value of pollinators (butterflies, bees, birds), the biological needs of pollinators and the threats and challenges faced by local pollinator populations. Students will be helping with the physical building of raised beds for pollinator gardens as well as Planting, maintaining and observing the gardens.
 
WE BELIEVE SJ: This is an exciting opportunity for our Grade 5 classes to attend Harbour Station on May 17th for the first New Brunswick WE DAY event. One of the main topics at WE Believe Saint John is going to be getting students involved in volunteering in their communities. WE BELIEVE takes place Thursday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and we have about 4500 students on site at this event and the link for the stream is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOgpItkbeqa35Yzw8Od4Ehw/live
 
Grade 4 Provincial Assessments: The Grade 4 assessments will begin on Tuesday, May 22nd. Students will be assessed in the areas of reading, math and science. Students should be well rested, have a good breakfast, nutritious snacks for school and of course, water!

Please find below a message from Ms. Watson, Office of the Superintendent regarding Wednesday, June 6th:
Under the NB Teachers Collective Agreement, all Kindergarten to Grade 8 teachers are to receive two half days each year for report card preparation.  The teachers had a half day in November dedicated to preparation of their report cards. The report cards were new to everyone and this time was appreciated.  On March 15 the Kindergarten to grade 8 teachers were scheduled to have another half day to help with their preparation of the March 2018 Report Cards.  Unfortunately this was a storm closure day across the District.  As a result of this, we must adjust our school calendar so there is a half day dedicated for the June report card preparation at K-8.  This will happen on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 and on that day it will be an early dismissal day for all K to 8 students. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause, and we hope by giving a one month notice you will be able to make the necessary arrangements.

•Every 3 min, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the ER, that’s more than 200,000 visits per year.
•8 foods account for 90% of all reactions: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish.

This is a message from Mrs. Blanchard, Principal at Hampton Elementary School. Here is your weekly edition of the HES Hawk Squawk.
 
Today was a great School Wide Clean Up day in recognition of Earth Day. Students worked around the school to collect garbage, compost foliage in our flower beds and make HES clean again! Students were also spotted writing about Earth Day around the school. We have two grade 4 classes attending a field trip to Crane Mountain learning about where our waste goes and also how to minimize the waste by Recycling and Composting.
 
PARENT POWER NIGHT: Thank you to those families who were able to attend our annual Parent Power Night! We had a great group of dedicated and supportive families who took advantage of this session. The panelists spoke of the importance of kids putting away their technology and getting outside for activity breaks and also connecting with family members. Sometimes anxiety presents as anger, defiance and misbehavior. It is important to allow your child to experience anxiety. You can’t promise that your child won’t fail a test or that she won’t fall when skating, but you can express confidence that she’s going to be ok, she will be able to manage it and that as she faces her fears, the anxiety level will drop over time.  This gives the child confidence that your expectations are realistic and that you aren’t going to ask her to do something she can’t handle.
 
Active Transportation: With the nicer weather, we want to encourage students to use active transportation to get to school. It was great to see the bikes come out the last couple of weeks and we know exercise is the most effective way to improve memory and attention at school. Read more here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-athletes-way/201410/8-ways-exercise-can-help-your-child-do-better-in-school  
 
Student Interns: Ms. Kayla Allaby is completing her term with us at in 3/4 Kennedy. We wish her well on her journey as a teacher! We are welcoming an NBCC student intern who will be learning with us for the next 8 weeks.
 
Courtyard Ducks: Our courtyard ducks have returned and were sighted by Mrs. Chase courting once again. If you recall last year, the momma duck nested and ended up hatching her ducklings in the courtyard!
Wednesday, April 25th is another half day for students with staff professional learning in the afternoon.
 
Pay It Forward Day: To wrap up April, we will acknowledge Pay It Forward Day on Friday with Random Acts of Kindness.
 
Volunteer Breakfast: On Thursday, May 3rd we welcome all volunteers to our Appreciation Breakfast from 7:45-8:45. There will be coffee and treats as well as a short performance by some of our students. This is a small way for us to thank you for your involvement in our school and for all you do!
 
News from the Home and School: The Home and School will continue to accept entries for the Big Fair Day ticket design. Please ask students to bring their drawings to the office early next week!
 
After School Activities: On Friday, Robotics continues with the Spring term (session #4/10). There are still a few spots remaining in this great enrichment program for aspiring engineers! It is open to both NEW and CONTINUING Robotics students and runs for 10 weeks. http://www.robonorthamerica.com/course/course_01_beginner.php

Safety Procedures: We had a planned fire drill practice this afternoon. The students and staff exited the building quickly and quietly in under a minute.
 
SPRING IS HERE! We had special visitors in our courtyard this week – our annual duck visit. For the past couple of years, a set of ducks have chosen our courtyard to nest and lay eggs. Each year we welcome baby ducklings and last year our students helped line the hallways for a duckling celebration to the marsh. Our classes have also been busy planting marigolds in our Greenhouse in preparation for our flower beds.
 
Milk Orders Start Monday: New milk orders start on Monday. Thank you to the 37 families who signed up for our new “cashless schools” option where you can pay by credit card – this is going to be a convenient option for families in the 2018-2019 school year.
 
PSSC Meeting: On Monday our Parent School Support Committee (PSSC) meets at 6:30PM in the school library. The PSSC is excited to host our second annual PARENT POWER NIGHT on Thursday evening at 6:30PM. Child care for school age children is available on a limited basis. Please call the school 832-6021 to register for one of these spots.
 
News from the Home and School: A continued thank you to our Home and School members who held another after school movie this week. The students were incredibly well behaved and they loved the movie. Congratulations to Braydon for winning a copy of the movie to take home! All hot lunch orders for the month of May are due by Friday, April 20th!
 
GOOD LUCK: Next week some of our Grade 5 students will be representing our school at the badminton jamboree at Westfield School. Good luck to these students! Good luck to one of our H.E.S. students, Orri Gionet, participating in the Provincial Chess Tournament this weekend!

I am the Journalism teacher at HHS. My students have created a school and community online magazine called The HHS Chronicle. It is updated weekly on the last school day of each week. I was looking through it today and thought the other schools in our community might be interested in the page as we try to cover a variety of local events and people.
Thank you for your support.

This is a message from Mrs. Blanchard, Principal at Hampton Elementary School. Here is your weekly edition of the HES Hawk Squawk. The storm closure this week was the 4th school closure of this winter. Last year we were over 8 days by this point in the year.
 
As part of Nutrition Month, ASD-South is promoting the theme “Go with the Flow, Drink H20”. We also were able to provide fruit and veggie trays again this week to all classes in order to promote healthy eating. We continue to share healthy eating tips on our morning announcements this week and are also continuing to catch students eating healthy with ballots on our Healthy Eating Tree!
 
REPORT CARDS: The Second Term report cards will go home at the end of the day on Monday. Parent teacher conferences are scheduled for Wednesday evening 4-7PM and Thursday morning 8:30-11AM. There is no school for students on Thursday due to Parent teacher conferences. In addition, schools are closed for Good Friday, March 30 and Easter Monday, April 2.

This is a message from Mrs. Blanchard, Principal at Hampton Elementary School. Here is your weekly edition of the HES Hawk Squawk. This week students had a busy week back after the March Break and we expect the rest of the school year to continue at this pace. This week, we have been quite busy reviewing classroom and academic expectations, finishing up and passing in final work for evaluation, interviews as well as individual testing in reading. Making sure that students are well rested, eating well, being active and having time to relax, will greatly help in preparing your child at being their best in our learning environment.
