Continuity of Learning

Greeting Parents;
This morning our staff and I met to start planning continuation of learning for Hudson’s Hope Students.  Teachers will be connecting with you in the next day or two to touch base, and also collect some survey information to help us with planning (such as do you have technology at home, reliable internet service, etc.).
Some of you will receive multiple calls if you have more than one child in school.
The plan is to be able to start providing some educational pieces by Monday, April 6th.  I will be providing some general activities that families can choose from as well.
We are really looking forward to getting connected with our community again…even if it “looks different”.
Go HAWKS Go!

PS – This message was sent via email to all parents/guardians. Email is the primary method of communication that I use for school announcements. If you did not receive the email, please contact me dbeam@prn.bc.ca so I can make sure my contact list is up to date. Thank you!

Student Learning Survey – Parents

For Parents of Hudson’s Hope School students in grade 4, 7, 10, or 12. When you have a few minutes please click on the link below and complete the survey (just use the “Direct Access”. Our District is “#60 – Peace River North). The survey contains 45 multiple choice questions to gather data for the Ministry of Education. Also, there are some key questions that we track as part of our school’s Framework to Enhance Student Learning (such as: “Do you feel welcome?”). The survey is open until April 3, 2020. If possible, please send a quick email to dbeam@prn.bc.ca stating that you have completed. Thank you! Survey Link

Wrestling Team Celebration

The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for our wrestling team. Our athletes participated in the B.C. Northern Zones tournament on February 8th in Prince George. They competed against teams from all over the North. ALL of our competitors qualified for Provincials! Here are the results:

  • 48 kg – Lucas Beam – 2nd Place
  • 57 kg – Nero Weder – 2nd Place
  • 84 kg – Xavier Beam – 2nd Place
  • 90 kg – Pasco Weder – 1st Place
  • 57 kg – Freyja Jarnagin – 1st Place
  • 69 kg – Bella Lucas Jarnagin – 1st Place

Also, Freyja Jarnagin won the Most Outstanding Female Wrestler for the entire Northern Zone Region! The Hudson’s Hope School Girls’ Team won the team tournament! Pretty exciting results for a school that has only been wrestling for three years. Great work Coaches Coleman Mercereau and Peter Douglas!

North Central Zones Champions – Hudson’s Hope School

Five of our competitors travelled to the B.C. Provincial Wrestling Championships in Langley last weekend. All of our wrestlers earned points in their matches, or won at least one match (which is fantastic at the Provincial level). Pasco Weder earned the highest place for our school, making it to the final four, and finishing 4th in the province! Congratulations to Lucas Beam, Xavier Beam, Pasco Weder, Freyja Jarnagin, and Bella Lucas Jarnagin for giving it your all in this high-level competition. Again, a big thank you to Coleman Mercereau for travelling to Langley to coach our students. Way to go HAWKS!

2019 Christmas Concert

Our annual Christmas Concert was beautiful. We had a record turnout of family and community members. Ms Dee once again wrote and created a fun and meaningful production that entertained us all and was truly rewarding for our students. Merry Christmas to all!

Science Fair Success!

Our School Science Fair was once again a fantastic event.  It is truly amazing to watch our grade three to six students share their projects with their peers, parents, and judges.  I greatly enjoy observing how each child’s confidence grows as they present to different audiences.  A big thank you to our teachers and support staff for their guidance, and of course to parents for supporting your child(ren).  We had a great turnout of parents, relatives, and community members to our Fair! Also a big thank you to our many volunteer judges: 

Mattias Gibbs, Levi Verlaan, Nigel Tilsen, Laurie Petrucci, Lorenne Hamre, Guy Armitage, Bill Lindsay, Wally Harwood, Tashana Winnicky, James Paulgaard, Erich Schmidt,Tim Hart,  Dave Sloan, Deborah Peck, Ross Peck, and Grace Okada

Congratulations to the following students who will be representing our school at the Regional Science Fair this Spring:  Hadley Gilliss, Sheigh Siemens, Andrew Quibell, Kaden McAndrews, Madison Beebe, Stella Matchett, Halle Beebe (gr 3), Damian Aldridge, Ayden Quibell, Penelope Mercereau, Addison Carruthers
