Dear Families & Friends,


Welcome to February! This month may be short in days, but it is chock-full of learning and activity here at HGS. In addition to celebrating our 100th day of school this month, we are celebrating kindness all month long. Our school is proud to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge, and we have many exciting activities taking place. Some of the highlights of this great event include:

•Kindness Challenge Kick-off Assembly, which took place on 1/28: students were treated to a special video created by teachers & staff;


•Kindness Matters photo station at 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, 2/1 ~ Teaming up for Kindness


•Friday, 2/8 ~ Hats off to Kindness (hat day)


•Friday, 2/15 ~ Shine Bright with Kindness (neon, bright, sparkly)


•Friday, 2/22 ~ Powered by Kindness (superhero attire)


Several other important reminders for the month of February include:

•Wednesday, 2/13 ~ Parent/Teacher conferences from 4-7 PM


•Thursday, 2/14 ~ Valentine’s Day Parties in classrooms


•Friday, 2/22 ~ Global Day of Play (stay tuned for more information)


•February 25 - March 1 ~ Winter Break (no school)


In good citizenship this month, we will focus on KINDNESS and HONESTY. Classroom discussions, daily quotes, and school-wide activities will focus on how we can each develop these character traits to make ourselves, and the world around us, a better, kinder, more beautiful place to be.


We hope that each of you experiences kindness as we journey through this school year together. As always, we appreciate the opportunity to teach and nurture your children. We look forward to all that this month will bring!


Until next time,


Lois Connors, Principal        Sarah Muncey, Assistant Principal
