January 2018 Principal: Mr. B. Stoikos Vice-Principal: Ms K. Lee Superintendent: Ms M. Campbell Trustee: Mr. Chris Glover [email protected] PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful, restful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year! It is great to see so many happy, smiling faces to start the New Year. Staff and students are back at it with clubs, teams and special events being planned. Despite the cold and wintery weather we had a great turnout for our Holly-Days Concert. Each year our vocal, strings, band and keyboard students prepare from September to December to make the evening come alive. A special thank you to: Ms. Riddell, Ms. Kepowitz, Ms. Cnossen and Mr. Estrin for their commitment and dedication to the Hollycrest music program and to our students for their hard work and dedication. I can’t wait until the Spring Concert. I’d like to thank all of the Hollycrest families for their generosity during the Holiday Season. Families contributed to our gift basket raffle; donated food items for the Daily Bread Food Bank collection; and donated clothes to Rm. 17’s clothing drive. A big congratlaations must go out to our Sr. Girls Basketball team. The Hawks finished 2nd in the city, losing a close final to Bliss Carmen. Congratulations, girls! Way to represent. In the next few months we will be taking part in Winterlude, basketball and volleyball, various field trips and other exciting events. We would like to encourage students to take part in the many extracurricular activities offered, and in the afterschool help that is offered in the HIT Centre on a nightly basis. Let’s make 2018 an exciting year at Hollycrest Middle School. Mr. Boris Stoikos Principal

GIFT BASKETS The Parent Council and the Hollycrest Grade 8’s would like to thank the Hollycrest community for donating so many wonderful baskets.

We are looking forward to Winterlude, our annual winter activity day, on Tuesday, February 27th.

ROOM 7- 8B NEWS Happy New Year to all! 8B is now back into the swing of things! In language, we are now beginning our third novel study. Students have selected one of four books. The focus for this novel study will be on examining guiding themes, how plots are developed, and authors' message. Students will be focusing on responding to the readings through essay writing. In writing, we are focusing on thoroughly examining the writing process. Students will discover the important relationships between planning, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing their work and how good writers are constantly revisiting each phase in the process. Students will also learn about concise writing by learning that word selection makes a difference when communicating thoughts and ideas clearly. In math, we are onto Geometry and Measurement. Students will be looking at nets and rendering 2D images in 3D. We will also be examining 3D shapes and calculating surface and volumes. In science, we are now beginning our cells unit that will wrap up by mid-February. Aside from learning important vocabulary and about cell components and systems students will also be completing a research report about cancer and create a hands-on model of a plant or animal cell. In geography, we are examining the economic, political and environmental factors that drive indicators related to quality of life and the Human Development Index. This study will provide students with the opportunity to gain a better perspective about the inequality that exists throughout the world and ways that we can perhaps create change. These are interesting times in 8B! Stay tuned! - Mr. Kozaris COURSE SELECTION FOR GRADE 8 STUDENTS

"Happy New Year! We are quickly moving toward course selection time. Course selection will need to be completed using myBlueprint. A signed copy of the myBlueprint form will need to be submitted to Guidance no later than Feb. 23rd. Earlier submissions are always appreciated and can easily be completed for those students moving into their feeder high school. All course descriptions are provided on myBlueprint. Stay tuned for more information that will be given to your son/daughter. As always, feel free to reach out to me at the school should you have any questions." Suzanne Gumbs-Fleming Elementary Itinerant Counsellor (EIC)
