Report Cards and Parent/Teacher Conferences
Term reports are coming home Friday, December 1st.
Please take some time to review the report with your child. Of course, the report card can only give an overview of your child’s progress. We encourage you to meet with your child’s teachers to discuss his/her progress in more detail.
Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, December 7th from 1:00-4:30 and from 5:30-7:00. Parent/Teacher Conferences must be pre-booked (no drop-ins); please call the school to arrange an appointment time. There will be no school for students during the afternoon session; students will be dismissed for the day and bused home at 11:55 am.
Our KinderStart program will be starting on Thursday, Dec. 7th.
We are planning to provide four two-hour sessions. Please call the school to confirm that your child will be attending before Wednesday, Dec. 6th. If you don’t have a child starting Kindergarten next year, but you know someone who does, please pass this information along.
Session Dates: December 7th January 12th February 12th March 16th

A Note of Thanks from the Terry Fox Foundation
Dear Hillview Academy,
When Terry was running in the early days of the Marathon of Hope, he was lucky enough to be invited to schools along the way. He told his story, showed his artificial leg and asked students for their help to make a difference in the lives of people living with cancer.
We know Terry could never have imagined that in just the past two weeks more than 3 MILLION students and staff participated in Terry Fox Runs to do exactly as he asked back in 1980: to make a difference in the lives of people we know and love...and people we will never meet.
As our Terry Fox Run Organizer you make this remarkable coast-to-coast-to-coast fundraiser possible. You inspire your students to do more, to be more, to give more of themselves. Terry's cancer research legacy burns brightly, and hopefully, because of you.
Thank you for taking the time to make Terry and The Terry Fox Run an important part of your school year.
Below is a thank you message from Terry's brother Fred Fox. Click HERE to view the video message.
