Notices Week 8 Term 1 2015
Monday 23rd March
At Havelock North Primary we are always looking for easier and more efficient ways to communicate information to you - our parents and caregivers.
We have recently set up a text service through Twitter, which will send out information regarding school activities and events. The service will also be used to send out important information in an emergency such as after an earthquake.
If you would like to subscribe to our text service please text the words: follow @HNPrimary
to the number: 8987
You can unsubscribe from the service at any time by texting STOP
Please note that the service is outgoing from Havelock North Primary only.
As part of our Citizenship in the Community inquiry we have been thinking about ways to make our classrooms positive learning communities. We have also been thinking about places that are special to us. This week we start to think about people who are special to us and we will be learning how to write character portraits.
Last week our PB4L (Positive Behaviour for Learning) focus was using polite language, tone and voice level. Congratulations to Tilda Shennan (Room 15) and William Lee Smyth (Room 14) who received the PB4L certificate. This weeks focus is correct behaviour when going to the office.
Lucky Book Club orders are due back in by March 30th. Please can cheques be made payable to Havelock North Primary School.
Library - Now that the school library is up and running we will be having library time every Monday. Please remember to send library books back every Monday so children can choose new books.

Homework Week 8 Term 1 2015
The amount of time given to complete the tasks will vary depending on what is required. 20 minutes a night is a good guide, but children are very busy these days and if you don’t have time to fit the homework in some days, or your child is just too tired, that is fine.
Take a book home each night. You might get a book from your teacher, your group browsing box or from the library.
Get a member of your family (Mum, Dad, Grandma etc) to sign the reading log in your Book Bag.
Bring your Book Bag to school every day.
Books only go home in Book Bags.
Next week we will be writing about a person who is special to us. Talk to your family about a person who has been important in your life. Think about why this person is special. Jot down the things you want to remember. Perhaps you might be able to find a photograph or a treasure that reminds you of that person.
This weeks homework is a printable sheet from Studyladder.
