The Stafford SCOOP Sept. 12, 2022

Posted: September 11, 2022


Week of Sept. 12, 2022

Happy Sunday Skyhawks Parents & Guardians!

WOW!  What a tremendous opening week here in Skyhawk Nation!  From our “Welcome to HD Stafford” Grade 6 day run by Ms. Cooper, Mr. Briscoe and our amazing Gr. 8 WEB Leaders  – to our gym mural completion, brand new lockers in our hallways (almost!), and an incredible staff TEAM who are determined to make this year the best one yet – We’re off to a great start!  Every week we’ll be sending out the SCOOP to help our Skyhawk Parents & Guardians know what’s coming up for the week, important dates, and pictures from the week that was.  We encourage you to read the SCOOP as it’s our primary form of weekly communication for both staff and parents and serves as a hub for information.   Without further ado…

Here’s the SCOOP!

HDSMS WELCOME BACK BBQ ( MEET THE TEACHER NIGHT):

This year’s “Welcome Back BBQ” for our Skyhawks community will be Thursday September 22, 2022 from 5:00 pm to 7:00pm on the back field.

This is a BBQ for all our Skyhawks families that will take place outside the community room and back field from 5-7pm and is a fantastic opportunity to meet/connect with all our Skyhawks Staff in a casual outdoor setting with food and fun!  We’ll be sending out more information in the coming days – but we hope to see all of you there!
