October 2021 Newsletter


Principal’s Message

Welcome Fall!   October is a month to give thanks! Wow are we thankful for all of the positive support we’ve received through our families, SCC and staff. It is so wonderful to have so many people working together to enrich the lives and learning of our HCCS students!

  This month we notice that the weather is changing! Please remember to send your child to school in layers so that they are warm enough on the cool mornings but able to enjoy the warm fall afternoons.

 This year staff and students will focus on a character trait each month. For the month of October HCCS will be focusing on perseverance. To persevere we encourage students to keep up their great work habits, continue with tasks that are difficult and keep consistent in their efforts to make good choices.  Please keep our character education initiatives in mind and speak to your child about what it looks like, feels like and sounds like. Building strong character helps students develop life-long skills that will lead them to success.

My door is always open and I value your input and feedback. My goal is to provide all students with an excellent education in a safe and supportive environment, in partnership with staff, parents and the community. You are welcome to chat with me either through a phone call, or email me at tracy_dinsmore@bwdsb.on.ca.

Attendance & Bussing

It is crucial that we know when and why students are away.  Please call the school 519 794 2729 x100 to leave a voice message for Mrs. Fullerton, our office manager, or text the school cell phone at 519-385-0923 (We do not take calls on the cell phone).  When texting please ensure you include your child’s name and why they are away.  The first time you text, please include whose phone you are texting from so we can add to our contact list (contacts get deleted over the summer).

If your student is absent and we don’t hear from you, we will be calling you or the emergency contact.  Thank you for helping us with this important task.

Similarly, if your child is not riding the bus home, you can either call, send a note, or text the school cell phone. The earlier you can let us know the better. Bus lists are printed by 2 pm and when you call late in the day, it’s challenging to get that information to teachers before dismissal. Please do not email attendance information or bus changes as we may not get emails in time.


Pizza and Milk

This year we will be offering pizza, possibly subs and milk. We are looking for parent volunteers that would meet School Board requirements so that we may offer this to students adhering to all guidelines.  If you may be interested in this please contact me at the school. Stay tuned as more information will come out soon !


School Community Council

The School Community Council will meet again in October.  We always welcome new parents and community members.  Come out to hear more about the wonderful supports provided by SCC!
