The Hawk's View - Parent Edition
We are very pleased to be writing this first “Hawk’s View” for our parent community. As a principal, it is very important to me that all parents are feeling connected to the school, that they know when and where things are happening, and that they have opportunities to provide feedback and information. As an educator, I want to make sure that students are supported at school and at home; to do that, we all need to know what’s going on in our fabulous school.
An email was sent to all families this morning, this will continue every week. Each Monday morning via The Hawk’s View, I will provide an overview of what’s happening in the school, perhaps share a great video or reading, and highlight upcoming events. If you did not receive the Hawk's View on Monday, please contact the office to update your email address. If you would like us to add an additional email address to our distribution list, please let our front office staff know and we’ll be glad to add it.

Of course it does, and you knew that, but have you heard about the newest initiative here at FRH? Let me tell you about it!
The Haythorne Cares Project is an exciting, locally developed program that is in its first year of implementation. Growing from a professional development activity in May, it is developing into something that has the potential to make our amazing school truly exceptional. It calls upon the abundant human resources we have, our fantastic students, dedicated staff and committed parents. It is very exciting and full of tremendous possibilities.
You can find updates on the Haythorne Cares Project on our connections page.
