Weekly Newsletter: February 1

February 1, 2019

Dear James Hill Families,

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Sunday Giants game at the Langley Events Center!s It was so great to see the JHE community come together to share in this experience. The beautiful sunrise on Monday was just the start to a week filled with lots of exciting learning opportunities! Our kindergarten classes made a field trip into the community to visit the Brookswood fire hall, our grade three classes went off to Science World, and several of our classes had Reptile Refuge visit

There were some impressive Crazy Hair dos on Tuesday!

in the library with lots of interesting animals to touch and hold. Our grade five basketball team played their first basketball game of the season in the JHE gym! Way to go athletes on your sportsmanship! Special thanks for Mr. Sheaff for coaching and to Mr. Peck for being referee! We also hosted our January Honouring assembly for our grade five students, had crazy hair day and had a fun popcorn day on Friday (thanks to our parent volunteers for making that happen). What a great week!
