HAPPY HALL HEADLINES | FEBRUARY 2019

HAPPY HALL SCHOOLS MESSAGE BOARD

PROVIDING QUALITY EDUCATION SINCE 1951

Dear Families,

 

The new year has been off to an exciting start! Check out what we’ve been up to and what’s to come...

 

Safety Training
Safety comes first at Happy Hall Schools. In February, our staff updated their CPR and First Aid skills at an on-site training, facilitated by Kim Westhafer, American Red Cross CPR and First Aid Instructor.

Summer… Already?
We love Summer at Happy Hall Schools! Our talented program directors and teachers have spent months planning for Summer 2019. Both our preschool and school-age programs have booked several special guests and designed an exciting curriculum that will keep children engaged all summer long. Ms. Stacy’s Kindergarten Readiness Program will give children the confidence to begin their primary school journey in the fall.

Chinese New Year
February has been a fun time at Happy Hall. We really enjoyed our Chinese New Year parade. Thank you all for being flexible and helping to create our parade route indoors. The children enjoyed doing their ribbon, dragon, lion, drum, and fan dances and the Red class made very cute piggies! Thank you all for joining in the fun.
Rainy Weather
We have been spending a lot of time indoors due to stormy weather. Teachers are trying to do lots of indoor active games like dance parties and musical chairs. Please be sure to send your child to school in weather appropriate clothes as we will go outside even if it is cold or sprinkling a little. 
Friendship
This month we have been learning about friendship and Valentine’s day. Thank you for helping your child make Valentine’s Day cards. We had a fun time handing them out to friends. We are looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day next month.

Setting Goals
For the first month of 2019, we all reflected on what we did over our long break, and discussed our goals for 2019. They varied from wanting to get better grades in school, to making more friends, traveling more, trying to donate more, and even wanting to meet a professional athlete.  We talked often about what it will take to meet these goals, and why we make goals. It is great to see the students thriving with decision making, responsibility, and goal setting.

BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS (GRADES TK-5)

Friendship
It has been a fun month in February , full of celebration and friendship. This month we have had a fun time celebrating Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day. Thank you to all of our families for donating food items for our potluck. The children really enjoyed each and every dish! We had a special valentine snack mix with a delicious fruit salad made with mangoes, strawberries, blueberries and grapes for valentine’s day.
Budding Artists
Some of the art we have done this month included our annual dragon coloring contest. Congratulations to our winners this year Darren Chow, Sofia Washington, Chloe Yu, Maud Engerberson, Kimberly Lam and Ryan Kim! Heart art designs, valentine trees, our large stuffed dragon, year of the pig coloring.
We’re Having Fun!
We experimented in making kool aid dough (grape and fruit punch) and regular blue slime. We’ve also played Minute To Win It games with candy hearts like shuffleboard sweet tarts and timed conversation heart stacking.
One of our favorite activities is learning and playing chess with the staff and friends. 
Community
Some of our Wednesday group activities have included heart healthy team races and Rolling Brain Breaks teams race. On early dismissal days we have our group games and this allows us to help the children work on their life skills and creates connection time for our older and younger kids to work together towards a common goal. It is teaching our older kids to work as leaders and our younger ones to listen and follow through with directions. It also helps to build our Club community and helps them step outside of their comfort zone to make new friends of all ages.
Original Works
Keep your eyes out for an announcement letter going out about Original Works Art. This is a fundraiser where you can purchase items with your child’s original artwork on it! I am excited to say that all of the proceeds raised will go to the families in Paradise who were affected by the fire this past November.
Parent Engagement App
If you have not already done so please sign up to receive your daily reports from HiMama. You can see what your child has done throughout their day at the Club.

Finally, the month of love has arrived. Hearts and dragon crafts kept us company, as we created our heart shaped mailboxes for the goodies we received during our party on February 13, 2019. Pizza and ice cream filled our day and tummies as we celebrate the holiday of love. We chowed down yummy dragon rice with corn to celebrate the year of the pig! - Ms. Charina
