Dear Parents/Guardians,

This is the final monthly newsletter for the 2020-2021 school year.  It has been a year like no other!  I am thankful that I live in New Brunswick and thankful our students have been able to be in school all year. I want to thank you for your support and efforts that continue to keep our community a safe place. We all look forward to seeing the end to the current pandemic and returning to the life we knew before covid.  


Tuesday, June 1st (and May 31st), staff and students in NB are invited to wear “orange”.  This is a way to acknowledge First Nation People’s experiences in Residential Schools in Canada.  Although Orange Shirt Day falls in September every year, on Tuesday we will wear orange again to support survivors and to recognize that every child matters.


Some preparations have started for the next school year including plans for bussing. Bus information is available in mid-August.  If you know that alternate bus routes will be needed for your child (ie another bus stop needed besides your home address), please contact the school for an alternate conveyance form and return to the school before the end of the school year. These will be processed over the summer. Also, we often receive questions about what classrooms students will be in next year.  At this time, we are unable to confirm the specific classrooms and teachers for students. Changes continue to take place even over the summer. Class lists with homeroom teachers will be posted on the first day of school.   


 Finally, with summer just around the corner, we want to encourage students to keep up their literacy and numeracy skills over the summer. A good way to do this is to connect with our local library.  We also want to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable summer. We look forward to seeing our returning students in September and wish our grade 5 students the very best as they leave us at HES and move on to middle school.
