Dear HGS Families & Friends,

We are “leaping” into February this year - the extra day might not seem like much, but with all we have going on this month, we can use it! We celebrate our 100th day of school during February which is always an exciting milestone! We are also pleased to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge for the second year in a row. Our focus on spreading and celebrating kindness includes lots of activities, such as:

❖ Be the “I” in KIND photo station - Thanks to Ms. Thibeault, we have a wonderful photo station where students can literally be the “I” in KIND and have their photo taken during lunches;
❖ Door Decorating Content: classrooms are busy preparing door displays that highlight kindness;
❖ Random Acts of Kindness: students are encouraged to find ways to spread kindness at home, at school, and in the community. They will share these on our bulletin board;
❖ Kindness-Grams: the Giving Gorillas will be delivering Kindness-grams throughout the school;
❖ Keeping it Kind Fridays: Spirit days to celebrate kindness!
➢ Friday, 2/7 ~ Teaming up for Kindness
➢ Friday, 2/14 ~ Shine Bright with Kindness (bright & sparkly)
➢ Friday, 2/21 ~ Powered by Kindness (superhero attire)

In addition to the Great Kindness Challenge, there are many other important & exciting things going on at HGS during the month. These include:
❖ Recognition of Black History Month with lessons & activities in classrooms
❖ Wednesday, 2/5 - World Read Aloud Day - guest readers will visit each classroom to share a special book
❖ Wednesday, 2/5 - PTO meeting 6:30 PM
❖ Thursday, 2/6 - Parent Teacher Conferences 4 - 7 PM
➢ Please be sure to have signed up ahead of time.
❖ Friday, 2/14 - classroom Valentine’s Day celebrations
❖ Friday, 2/21 - Day of Play (details to come)
❖ 2/22 - 3/1 - February Break - school resumes Monday, 3/2

Our word of the month for February is KINDNESS. Daily quotes, classroom lessons, and school activities will focus on how we can spread kindness to help make the world a better place.


We hope that each of you has the opportunity to experience & spread kindness each day. Thank you for the opportunity to nurture and teach your children. What we do together matters, each and every day.

Until next time,
Lois Connors, Principal Sarah Muncey, Assistant Principal
