Dear Parents & Guardians of Grade 6 Students,
We are looking forward to having your child attend Hodgson for Grade 7 in September 2014. To ensure a smooth transition from Grade 6 to Grade 7, we have planned several events in the Spring and Fall of 2014.
On Thursday, April 24, we are having our Info Night for Parents of Grade 6 students who are coming to Hodgson for Grade 7. Please join us in the Gym at 6:45 pm for an evening where you can learn about what Grade 7 at Hodgson is like. We hope to see you there!
On Tuesday, May 13, Grade 6 students from our feeder schools will visit Hodgson for the morning to learn about our school and our staff. It will be a fun morning for our in-coming students.
For early September, we have planned a Hodgson Spirit Day, called the Colour Games, which focuses on team-building and welcoming new students to the Hodgson community. This day is a lot of fun and gives our Grade 8s a chance to provide leadership to our new grade 7s.
In early October, we are also planning an overnight trip to an outdoor education centre for our Grade 7s. Our goal for this trip is to create a common experience for our new students and to strengthen the relationships within the Hodgson community for our students. We are excited about this trip!
We hope that these events will be a warm welcome to Hodgson for your child.
