Monday, May 6 to Friday, May 10

We’re excited to invite you to our upcoming Spring Scholastic Book Fair! This event is an opportunity for students of all ages to build their home libraries and further their love of reading. As always, all purchases benefit our school learning commons and our literacy programs at Hazelwood. 

It will begin on Monday, May 6th  with a walk through for students to view what is available and end on Friday, May 10th.  Keep watch for online displays of books and any changes to schedules.

Helpful hints:

1. If you are sending in money with your student, put it in a baggy or envelope with their name and the amount.

2. Go the website above to check the pictures on display.  They won't be pretty, but you'll get an idea what we have.

3. Books may have to be ordered.  A receipt will be sent home to show the purchase and order.

If you are interested in Volunteering, we need you to help with the day to day operations of the fair, please contact our Teacher-Librarian by email, garyedison@nlesd.ca, or call  709-368-2123 and leave your contact information. 

Learning how to Crochet

Outside Play 

We are a school that certainly promotes outside time. Teachers take students outside during the day and also at playtime. As well as a change of clothes just in case. 

We can expect the weather to change and temperatures to drop. We will continue to go outside daily when the weather and conditions permit us to do so. It will be important for students to come dressed and prepared for outside to dress appropriately with warm jackets, hats and gloves/mittens when coming to school.
