Principal's Message

Dear Hiawatha Community,

Thank you to everyone who was able to come out for our Community Dinner. It was so nice to be able to serve you all and give you space and time to enjoy a good meal with good company.

I hope everyone has a great break. I will be taking the break off to be with my family.

Take care and see you in March!

Message from Mr. B in gym

Over the past three weeks students spent a lot of time working on their basketball skills. Younger students played games like Freeze Dribble, 4 Corners and Red Light Green Light with basketballs. Ask your older students about Make It Take It, Steal the Frog, Chicken FIghts, Watermelon Shooting and Basketball Bowling. All students had the opportunity to explore and shoot around during choice time.

Cold Weather Clothing Reminder

During the Winter months, please remember to send your student to school every day with the items listed below.

We go outside every day when the wind chill temperature has our "Feels like" temperature higher than zero degrees.

  • hat
  • pair of gloves or mittens
  • coat
  • snow pants
  • boots
  • change of clothes
  • indoor shoes

If students do not have boots and snow pants, they will still go outside but need to stay on paved areas of the playground during recess. This is done to keep them dry.

Please pack indoor shoes for your student to wear inside the school building. Wearing wet snow boots is not only uncomfortable but makes for wet floors, which can lead to injury.

Need Winter Clothing Items?

If you need assistance with obtaining winter gear, please contact Mrs. Grykien or Nurse Reyna. Health Office: (802) 857-7740.
