November 18, 2018

Happy Sunday. Was a great sunny weekend, but definitely a feel of winter in the air. We have a busy week coming up so please be sure to read through the information carefully.

New Information To Share:


Collaboration Afternoon: This Tuesday November 20th is a collaboration afternoon for staff. Students are dismissed at 1:34.

PAC Meeting: There is a PAC meeting this Wednesday at 6:30pm. All are welcome.

Aboriginal Family Gathering: Our annual Aboriginal Holiday Family Gathering is coming up on Friday November 30th. It is a great community event and all Skyhawk families are welcome.

School Status Alerts: Given that we are heading into the winter season, it’s a good time to remind our Skyhawks Nation where they can get information regarding the status of HD Stafford Middle School. We will always keep you posted through our normal channels of communication. The more real time information will be through our text subscription (Remind), Facebook and Twitter. We also will share information via email. Final, you can go to the district website which you can access by clicking here.  

Information From Last Week:

Archery Helping Adult: David Sandquist runs the after school archery program for our students here at HD Stafford. He is looking for one or two adults who may be able to help him out. If you are interested, please email him at or speak with him in the small gym.

WE are Rafikis Bracelets: In Kenya, Rafiki means friend. Rafiki Bracelets are handmade with love by Kenyan mamas. Rafikis make a wonderful gift for anyone, and a perfect stocking stuffer. Each Rafiki you buy helps to improve education, water, health, food or financial opportunity for someone in a developing community. Students can see Mrs Bhamra, Mr Ostafiew or a Me to We student rep if you would like one. Orders are due by November 30th.
