From the Office

We’ve managed to make it through another month of excitement and learning opportunities at Hanley Composite School. This year our school is concentrating on three School Goals: Reading Intervention, Numeracy and Student Engagement. Each of the teachers are part of developing plans to meet those goals, so if you have some questions, or are interested in more information, stop by and ask one of them about the school goals.

Some more staffing changes are happening at our school this year. Mrs. Bain left this month on her maternity leave for the remainder of the year. Congratulations to Mrs. Bain and her family on the birth of their son, Liam. Ms. Adelman will be replacing her in all of her classes. Mrs. Koroll will be away on her leave by the end of the month. We’ll be moving Miss Martineau to the K/1 room at that time and Ms. Stefanson will be in to work with the grade 2/3 students until Mrs. Romanchuk’s return in the second semester.

Congratulations to Mr. Howie on the birth of his daughter. Mr. Howie is one of our interns we have working with Ms. Prakash.

I want to wish congratulations to our fall volleyball and football teams for their great performances this season and their accomplishments! Special congratulations to the Junior Girls’ Volleyball team on winning the District champions title, and to the Saber Football team on winning silver in the Provincial Final we hosted last weekend. We are proud of each of you and your efforts to represent our school with pride and respect. For your interest, Basketball is underway at Hanley with Junior and Senior teams already starting practices. Good luck to all the teams.

Information was sent home this week for parents to be able to start an account on PowerSchool – our online database for grades and attendance for students. If you have any questions or concerns, give the teacher a call to ask about it, or drop by to talk to me about it.

As always, Mr. Anderson and I would love to talk to you if you have time to drop by the office. Take care and I’ll talk to you soon.
