Advent Calendar # 18

Tell me a story

Quiberon Peninsula, Golf de Morbihan, Brittany, France


In their recent unit, “Tell Me a Story,” Grade 2 has been exploring different authors and their books. They looked at Mo Willems’s Pigeon and Gerald and Piggie; ​how he uses speech bubbles, and the type of illustration techniques he uses for each series. These are some of the Grade 2’s artwork, using Mo Willem’s style of writing and drawing to make a short story page.

Thank you…

...for spreading joy!

A huge thank you to our parents, who with their treats, wellness supplies, surprise gifts and holiday spirit left us with a warm, fuzzy feeling on the last day of school in the school building before Winter Break. Your kindness is heartwarming and was very much appreciated by students and staff.

Many thanks to the whole H.I.S. community. Together, we managed to successfully keep the school open and running as normal as possible, for almost everyone, for 15 weeks from the end of August until Winter Break!

May the next 3 weeks bring you joy, relaxation, the safety of your home, fun watching romantic seasonal movies, hot chocolate topped with marshmallows, Plätzchen, Lebkuchen, Pfeffernüsse, sunshine and Winterzauber.

Keep checking the blog from time to time, there will be new posts to enjoy throughout Winter Break!
