Hanover School division has created its Land Acknowledgement Statement. It is read every Monday morning during the morning announcements. We will also be reading this at all public events.
We acknowledge the traditional territory upon which the schools of Hanover School Division reside as the lands of Treaty 1 territory and the homeland of the Metis people. Hanover School Division operates on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe. In the spirit of truth, reconciliation, and collaboration, we honour our relationship with Indigenous Peoples and respect the contributions of history, culture, and language of Canada’s original peoples.
The months of May and June are hardly slow. While trying to complete the day-to-day and year-end tasks, we are busy planning for next year.
- Thanks to all parents (and students) who came out to parent-teacher and student showcase of learning The goal of the evening was to have parents connect with our school and find out a bit more about what their child is learning. The feedback from those that attended was very positive and we will certainly do it again next year.
- Spring is also a great time to get in some learning trips. Teachers of various grades are looking at the educational opportunities that can extend the learning beyond the classroom. If you receive notification regarding a learning trip, please provide consent through the parent portal asap.
- Finally, we can have events to revive school spirit. Last Month, we brought back our Spring Fling where students were able to dress up and participate in a variety of activities in the gym including various games, sing a-longs, Just Dance video game and of course food.
