June is a special month like May as we honour our fathers and
all they do for our children. It is heartwarming to hear our children speak so
highly of their dads during morning prayers, as they talk about the many
wonderful things they get to do with their dads. Like moms, dads play an
integral role in the development of their children. Time with dad is needed and
special for our children. Thanks to our dads for being an important support and
caregiver in the lives of our students.
It is a month of special events that include field trips, fun day and a
farewell celebration to celebrate the closing of our school year. Our students
have worked hard this year and we are proud of their accomplishments and
achievements. Please be sure to read the newsletter carefully and check the
calendar as June is one of the busiest months of the year.
There are still many exams and assessments to complete, so be sure your
children are well rested and prepared. Practice and review are an important
part to your child’s success and helping to keep them focused as the weather
gets nicer will be a goal for both school and home.
We would also like to take the time to thank our parent council for helping our
families in so many ways. Our Parent Council does so much more than provide
money to support our school. They promote school community through the Family
Dance and Family Festival as well as volunteer in classrooms, on fieldtrips and
organize hot lunches (Thanks to Maria Ward, Hot Lunch Coordinator) that help
families twice a month by taking away the worry of having to make your child a
lunch. Bonus!! In addition that staff would like to thank Bonnie Kreklau for
organizing the annual staff appreciation lunch. All these events and support
truly make Mary Hanley Catholic School a Community of Joy.
The staff and students of Mary Hanley Catholic School would like to take this
opportunity to say farewell to Mrs. Dohn, Mrs. Marin-Boscan (educational
assistant) and Mr. Bain. We are going to miss them so much but we know they are
moving on to a new and exciting phase of their career. We would like to thank
them both for the many wonderful activities and service they have provided to
MHCS over the many years they have been with us. They are truly great educators
that cared for each and every student that crossed their path. May God bless
them and we wish them health, happiness and continued success.
Mr. King and I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks-you to the
students, staff and parents that have helped make another school year a
success. We are very proud of the staff of Mary Hanley Catholic School for the
time, dedication and care they put into ensuring our students succeed. We have
been extremely fortunate to work with a staff that is professional and
dedicated to student growth and learning. Take the time to say thank-you to
your child’s teacher before they move on next year.
