For the month of November we will be blasting off into Space to explore planets, stars, and the life of an astronaut! We will also be learning about gravity, magnetism and our atmosphere. If any of you parents have some fun space facts and want to join us on our space mission we would love to sign you up for a short talk this month.
The HHBH CA Playschool is inviting you to participate in our Safeway Sobeys Gift Card fundraising event. The fundraiser will run from now until November 22rd, 2018. Cards should be available about December 7th – in time for the Holiday Season.
This is a great fundraising program for the preschool and an easy way for you and your friends and family to buy groceries! These gift cards also make a terrific addition to a gift basket or a care package for a family in need during the holidays. Your support enables us to continue to make improvements to our classroom.
With your purchase of Safeway Sobeys gift cards, the playschool receives up to 6% of the total amount of gift cards purchased (ie. To make a $100 donation to the school you need to buy $1250 in gift cards). You may purchase gift cards in amounts from $10.00 to $250.00 (see order form).
They can be used in all Sobey’s Inc stores (including Safeway, Sobey’s, and IGA) throughout Canada and have no expiration date. Safeway Gift Cards CANNOT be used for fuel or at any Liquor stores and CANNOT be used to buy other retailers cards in the stores.
An order form is attached and a hard copy will be handed out this week as well. Please fill out the form and attach a cheque made payable to HHBH CA Playschool. Please return the completed form to the fundraising envelope inside the classroom. Orders must be returned by November 22rd, 2018 so please do not delay.

For the month of October we will be learning about Fall, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. We will explore the wonderful world of colours, learn some new songs and do some fun October activities.
It’s hard to believe that in a few short weeks we will be welcoming new and returning children into the classroom. We are looking forward to a great year and getting to know all of our students and their families!
Please check out our September Welcome Newsletter for important Playschool Information, check your email for your child's staggered entry day & volunteer sign-up links + download our 2018/19 Master Calendar for important dates!
All parents/caregivers are also welcome to join the HHBH Community Association Playschool Parent Group on Facebook for updates and reminders!
See you all in September!
In June we will be learning about Camping & Outdoor Fun, and winding down to our summer holidays. If you pop your head into our classroom, you will see that our caterpillars are beginning to spin their cocoons and will be ready to hatch.
In the month of May we are exploring life in the ocean. We are excited to learn about the variety of marine animals and plants. Our butterfly larvae are due to arrive the week of May 22nd. We love to watch the caterpillars spin their cocoons and transform into beautiful butterflies.
In April we will explore Spring and Recycling. We will start the month with a special egg hunt as well as some fun Easter crafts. We will learn about Spring Planting and seeds later in the month, as well as looking at baby animals in the springtime.
In March we will escape to the land of books and leprechauns! We will explore different methods of storytelling, using some well known stories. Using puppets, props, pictures and acting we will help the kids to explore the magic of storytelling. We are expecting some mischief from Lenny the Leprechaun…be sure to wear green on St Patrick’s Day when we search for Lenny’s pot of gold!
