Orange Shirt Day and Buttons for Sale






On Monday, October 1, FHPS will be honouring Orange Shirt Day. 

Orange Shirt Day is a day where we encourage staff and students to wear orange to honour the strength and courage of children who experienced Canada's residential school system. Furthermore, this day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come. 

For students who do not have Orange shirts - we have you covered! Bill Hogarth SS has  designed orange "Every Child Matters" buttons.  We will be selling these buttons in the morning, recess and lunch on Monday.  

Encourage your children to pick up a pin for a donation of 50 cents and show their support for reconciliation. Funds raised will be donated to the Legacy of Hope Foundation whose purpose is to educate, raise awareness and understanding of the legacy of residential schools, and to support the ongoing healing process of Residential School Survivors. 

Thanks for your support!

Yom Kippur

To all families and staff who commemorate Yom Kippur, we would like to wish you and your families an easy fast.

Image result for yom kippur 2018

Yom Kippur is the Jewish Day of Atonement and the most solemn of the Jewish Holy Days. Before Yom Kippur, Jews perform the Kaparot atonement service. In the late afternoon they eat the pre-fast meal, followed by blessing their children, light a memorial candle as well as the holiday candles and go the synagogue for the Kol Nidrei service. In the course of Yom Kippur, five prayer services are held. People ask for forgiveness of their sins and forgive others of theirs. Jews refrain from all eating and drinking on this day.

As we start the 2018-2019 school year, we would like to remind and encourage families to consider walking or cycling with children to and from school.

There are many benefits to walking and/or cycling to school.

It:
  • Improves student academic performance by making children more alert and better prepared to learn.
  • Contributes to the daily goal of 60 minutes of moderate or vigorous activity for children, improving their health and overall fitness.
  • Reduces traffic congestion and improves safety for everyone in school zones.
  • Promotes life-long habits that foster independence and active lifestyles, preparing children for their future.



For those who can’t walk or cycle to school every day, choosing active travel once, twice or a few days a week can still provide benefits. You can also consider parking a block away from the school and walking the rest of the way. Include active travel as part of your daily routine!

To all those celebrating Rosh Hashanah, we would like to wish you and your families a very happy celebration.

Image result for rosh hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year and begins a solemn ten-day period of contemplation and selfexamination that ends with the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.

Rosh Hashanah is the first of the High Holy Days, and the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve. Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration beginning on the first day of Tishrei - the first month of the Jewish lunar year. According to the Hebrew calendar, days begin at sundown. Hence Rosh Hashanah begins the evening before Rosh Hashanah day.

These High Holy Days are the most religious days of the year for many Jews, and is a time for reflection and atonement. Many families attend synagogue, praying for peace among nations, among peoples, and within themselves in the coming year. Many people have a special meal where blessings are recited over different symbolic dishes including apples, honey, dates, and pomegranates
