Thank you Ms. Tilly for a great first week back to school. Hope is excited every morning to learn, and I appreciate the balance of learning between instructional and virtual learning , as well as encouraging the children to take a break from the screen. On top of that, you have continued on the Montessori training path this weekend, so big thanks to you! -Bronagh L.
Mrs. King is giving the kids lots of opportunities to speak in her zoom calls, despite it being clunky and time-consuming. I know it’s helping the kids feel like they are a part of something, that their presence on the call matters. I really appreciate her caring for them in this way when it would be easy to just want to push through teaching material. My child had only good things to say about her days this week! Thank you, teachers! -Anonymous
We love the teachers and staff at HHES!!! They are amazing!!!! Also a big thank you for their hard work and patience during the first week of virtual learning 🤗. -Tanya S.
Ms. Lachlan has been so kind and patient as she teaches the students to navigate Zoom. I can imagine it is quite frustrating to teach & manage behavior through a screen, but she has kept her cool and continued to keep her cool as she encourages the students. Thank you Ms. Lachlan! -Emily P.
Special thanks to Mrs. Tiller and Mrs. Carel for a great first week back! Although things may be “different” for the start of this year, the kids are in great hands under your care in the “classroom”. Thanks for loving on these kids, and offering the support and optimism they need in this new start. -Oliver C.
Ms. Thompson, thank your for starting off music this week with fun and positive energy with a scavenger hunt. I enjoyed hearing the giggles and excitement in an effort to gain the items. We love your approach! -Bronagh L.
