Our first School Council meeting will take place at 6:30 pm on Monday, October 1st. Come out and meet your new Executive and School Council members. Find out how funds raised through school council initiatives are spent. All parents are welcome to attend our school council meetings.

Our grade 1 students will be heading to Springridge Farm on Tuesday, October 2. SchoolCashOnline payments will be available until today, Friday, September 28. This field trip follows the grade 1 science curriculum on Living Things. Students will explore living things, growing cycles and changes in seasons. Since much of the day is spent outside we recommend that parents send a litterless lunch, water, sunscreen and a hat.  

The Senior girls Volleyball Team will be heading to Falgarwood Public School on Tuesday, October 2, for a tournament. It runs from 4:00 pm to 9:30 pm. Falgarwood’s address is 1385 Gainsborough Drive, Oakville.

Friday, October 5 is a Professional Development day for staff. There is no school for students.

Monday, October 8, is Thanksgiving and there is no school for students. We wish all our James W. Hill Families a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with many opportunities to feel thankful!

On Tuesday, October 9 our Cross Country team will head to Kelso Park in Milton. The buses leave at 9 AM sharp so please ensure that your child is here on time. The return time to JWH is 2:00 PM. Please pack a litterless lunch, plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat. Please check the weather in the morning to see if your child needs to layer their clothing. Go Jaguars!

The grade 6 overnight Mansfield trip will be taking place October 10, 11 and 12th, 2018. Please return all forms by Tuesday, October 2. The initial deposit of $100 is due by the end of today and the balance of $125 may be paid through SchoolCashOnline between October 1 and 4. Rooming Lists will be prepared by the teachers and disclosed to the students the day before they depart. Please remember to pack 1 bag only and arrive at the school on time for a 8:45 am departure. Thank you!

The JWH Fall Fair is just around the corner. Taking place on Saturday, October 13 from 10 am to 2 PM. The organizing committee has been hard at work to create a fun filled day for all! On Monday, October 1, your child will bring home an empty container for our Twoonie Tub activity. Please fill the tub and return it to the school.

While the year started off with students arriving on time, we are now moving in the opposite direction! PLEASE make sure that your child arrives in time to line up on the black top with their classmates. The entry bell is 8:45 am and ALL students should be on the blacktop ahead of this time. Students who are admitted through the front door are late and this becomes part of their attendance history. It is the school’s expectation that every student should arrive on time in order to participate fully during the first period of the day. Thank you.
