Poetry Games - Our Students' Poems Published!
Recently, Halcyon entered four students’ poems in the Young Writers' "Poetry Games" competition. We are delighted to announce that all four of our students were chosen to be published in the upcoming "The Poetry Games - London Voices" book which will be sent to the British Library and further libraries across the UK and Republic of Ireland.
In her letter to the school, the editor of the Young Writers Books, Allie Jones, commented on the "perception, imagination, expression, and creative use of language" of our students poems.
Congratulations to Tanguy Guerlais (Grade 7), Siri Cervin (Grade 6), Kate Crannell (Grade 6), and Noah Melman (Grade 6) on this outstanding achievement! Your Halcyon Community celebrates with you!

April Break Reading:
All Halcyon Students will receive a text to read over the April Break. These texts are directly connected to their curricula studies, and we encourage parents to assist their child with this reading. The following Scholastic Resource contains some excellent tips on how to engage with your child during reading sessions.
Upon their return to school, all students will complete a short digital book review on our Halcyon Community GoodReads Board. If you have not yet joined our Halcyon GoodReads Community, you may sign up here or, if already a member, connect to our group here.
