We Day Fundraiser

The We Day Committee will be having a “guess the staff’s baby photo” competition and a spirit day in order to raise money for our local cause.  Students are encouraged to bring money and participate in the “guess the staff’s baby photo” competition.   1 guess for .50 and 3 guesses for $1.00.  Further donations will be accepted.  The photos will be posted in the front foyer of the school from Monday, May 4 to Friday, May 8.  Parents are also encouraged to participate in this activity.  Watch for information being sent home regarding these events.

Spring Weather

We are asking students to come prepared for all weather types, raincoats, splash pants and rubber boots must be worn during the spring as we are going outside on misty days.  Back-up clothing is recommended for all ages.  Please keep your umbrellas at home.

Music Makers

What a wonderful event!  Mme Fournier and Mme Hamilton, along with many South Hull students, put on a spectacular performance at the Music Makers event that was held at Symmes/D’Arcy High School on Friday, April 24.  Our students, with the superb guidance from Mme Fournier and Mme Hamilton, sang songs and played Djembe Drums.  The event was well attended and we are extremely proud of our students.  Kudos to you all!

Home & School

The next Home & School Committee meeting is Monday, May 4 at 6:00 pm in the teachers’ lounge.  There are only two more meetings left this year so if you are considering becoming a member next year; we encourage you to come to the meetings to get a sense of what we do as a group.

The next Subway Day is May 12.  The next Pizza Day is May 28.

The money raised from the February 13 PJ Night was put towards purchasing backgammon and chess games for the school.

We are urgently seeking Home & School Committee members for the 2015-16 school year.  We are looking ahead at organizing events for next year and in order for any activities to happen, we need you!   As well as members, we are looking for someone to be on the Executive Committee because without a complete Executive, the Home & School Committee will be unable to continue.  H & S is responsible for events such as Summerfest, Monster Ball, PJ Nights, as well as, fundraising for things such as books for the library and classrooms, sporting equipment and musical instruments.  If there is no Committee, none of these things can continue.  If you have any questions please call Crystal at 613-513-3717.

Summerfest

Summerfest will take place on Thursday, June 11 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  The Home and School Committee are looking for parent volunteers to help out and make this event as fun as possible for the kids.  Even a half-hour of your time would help!  For more information please call Crystal at 613-513-3717 or Allana at 819-921-0708.

Absences

Please be reminded to phone the school should your child be absent due to an illness, appointment or will be late.   You may leave a message on the answering machine anytime.

Bus Lane

Please be reminded that the morning bus lanes are busy.  We would like families to regard the city bylaws and pay close attention to the road signs that indicate that there is no access to Crescent North between 7:00 – 8:30 a.m., as well to regard the school bus flashing lights.

Parking

We understand that there is a lack of parking around the school.  Please be reminded that due to limited space, there is no parking in either of the staff parking lots.  There is a 15-minute free-zone in front of the school.  There is parking on Crescent Drive west of Vanier, on Crescent Drive east of the school, on Oval Drive (inside the Crescent) and on Lynn Street (behind the school).  The side street directly in front of the school, Rue Des Frenes Rouge, is a no-parking street.
