Welcome to Hafford Central School
We will be having our second literacy assembly on October 17th to kick off EDUCATION WEEK!
I had sent home a note with report cards in June suggesting students spend time reading over the summer to boost our reading scores. I want to emphasis that spending 10-15 minutes each night reading together will make a HUGE difference for students. We have many, many new books in our library for students to read. We encourage students to look through the library and take some out! The OVERDRIVE platform also allows students to take out books online. Let's improve our school-wide reading scores!
The magazine campaign is underway. Please support our SLC fundraiser as this helps to pay for school activities for students.
The first few weeks have been busy preparing for the activities that will happen during the year and we think this is going to be a fantastic year! Please plan to get involved as it helps to build morale and to make the year more enjoyable!
Football practices continue even after the first two wins of the year! Way to go team and keep up the great work. Football game tonight versus Macklin. Game time is 4pm rain or shine!
Volleyball is underway! Mrs. Linnell and her volleyball experts put on another great clinic for our Volleyball players. Mega Volley is just around the corner!
The magazine campaign and Blue and White Day are the two main activities for our SLC this month! Thanks to our leaders who are working hard to make things run smoothly but with some excitement!
Happy birthday to Kory, Shaye, Morgan, Abigail, Jessica, Nicholas F, Logan, Toni, Conor, Steele J, Daylon, Tiana, Dawson, Hailey P, Alicia R, Krystiyan, Nakelka, Ian, Max, Steele T, Courtney, and Rayna who have birthdays in September!
We are slowly making our way through the registration forms. Grade 12s will have career couselling later in the month to help them solidify plans for their future.
Grade 12 students must have 24 credits in order to meet Ministry standards for graduation. Students should make an appointment to see Administration if they are unsure of the number of credits they have earned.
High School students need to remember that full course loads ensure they will meet all criteria for graduation and for entrance into post-secondary institutions.

We are now using the online calendar to share events. Please check regularly as it is updated frequently. A paper copy of the calendar is also attached to the back of the monthly newsletter should you require one. Also, a full school calendar including events and important dates has been sent home with the youngest in the family.
The Upcoming menu on the left side of this page is a small glimpse at the upcoming events and important dates that are approaching. This menu is calendar sensitive, meaning once the date has passed it will be replaced by another upcoming event.
