Hume School Newsletter
From the Principal’s Desk:
As we move into the last few weeks of this school year, I have reflected on those things that have created such a fabulous school year.
The learning throughout the year that our students participated in has been amazing!! The staff continue to build real-life learning opportunities for the students to engage in. Even in June, many of the outdoor adventures, are not just about year end fun adventures (although that’s there too!) June activities continues to build on the connections established all year.
I wish to send a big shout out to our school PAC. Through the year, funds from PAC have supported classrooms, field trips, grade 5 activities, and of course the playground that will be installed sometime this summer. Parent volunteers have been eager to participate and support us when needed and that puts a smile on my face. We cannot do many things without this incredible team!! The reality of the playground coming this summer and of course the success of the Ice Cream Social certainly shows off what great team work accomplishes!!
I am very proud of so many things that happen here at Hume Elementary!! I have many ideas from here that I will take with me to my new school and hope to build upon the successes they have there as well. Hume Elementary is a huge feather in my cap of experiences!! Words are hard to find to say how fortunate I feel to be a part of this school and the community.
Equally, I am glad to have worked with all of this staff, you and your children. I have my picture of Nelson that will hang proudly n my new space at Adam Robertson Elementary School. But, I will always have great memories of Hume!
Change is not easy, but an opportunity to grow and learn as part of a learning journey. I find that this change does bring with it a surge of new and different energy. Again, that opportunity to learn and grow. After all, working with new people in all walks of life, expands our own skills and perspectives that can enrich our lives and of those around us. As we adapt to what’s new (and students do this every year), we can reflect on what’s most important to us, what we can make different and what’s okay to let go of. Change really is an opportunity for everyone!
I know that I personally have gained so much from being here. Thank you!
Thank you PAC for this wonderful print!

As we finish the last month of this school year, please remember our students still need a good sleep (harder to do with the longer days), and to be on time for school. Routines for students are important as they build a sense of calmness to start the day. We have seen a significant increase in the morning lates. Thanks to those who call including ones due to appointments. This is appreciated.

The school provides the school supplies for students. Costs to parents are as follows:
