November 25, 2018

One month until Christmas … just let that sink in! Crazy we are almost at December. We have busy week coming up so please read through the information below carefully.

New Information To Share:


Report Card Prep Day/Early Dismissal: A reminder that Monday November 26th is report card prep day for teachers. Students will be dismissed at 11:20.

Aboriginal Family Gathering: This Friday is our annual District Aboriginal Family Gathering hosted at HDSMS. It is a great community event and all of our Skyhawks are invited. It goes from 5:00 – 8:00 so please feel free to stop by.

Lost and Found: We have a healthy pile of clothes, shoes and other miscellaneous items in our lost and found. Please ask your child to have a look to see if they own any of it. We will be donating it all to charity at the end of this week.

Nite To December Christmas Concert: We will be having our annual Nite To Remember show on December 18th at 12:00 and December 19th at 6:00pm. It is a great opportunity to showcase the many talents of our students. And there will be a special guest appearance! Looking forward to seeing our Stafford Community in attendance.

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.
