The grade 5/6 class was lucky to have Cisco the police dog visit the classroom. The students have been working with Constable McDonald and Constable Batt and learning about citizenship, culture, as well as the D.A.R.E program.

Once again our students thrilled a packed gymnasium audience with a great Christmas concert. It was wonderful to see so many elders, parents, and family and community members. It was a great way to celebrate the end of this term and calendar year. Every student in the school had a part to play in the production. We thank Lena and Trevor for their creativity and hard work in coming up with the theme and program for this concert. Thank you to our student singers, as well as teacher singers, especially Lena, Miss Schwager and Mrs. Logan and former HHP students who joined in. And Santa dropped by as well!
