Welcome to Grade 4 @HPS

Dear Students/Parents and Guardians,

My name is Terry Vella and I am very excited to be teaching Grade 4 this year. I have taught in the junior division for most of my career which is my passion. My family includes my wife, who is also a Grade 4 teacher, and my two sons Cameron and Colin who are very active in many activities in the community.

This year, I will be teaching students Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Art, and Music. Mrs Shah will be teaching French, Drama, and Dance. I have a passion for technology in my classroom and use computers and idevices in many different aspects to help improve student learning and engagement. In my class, I maintain a student blog with my class which is a great place to view student work and thinking.

Student planners will be maintained daily. Every day we will be adding both classroom and school information and reminders. Students are asked to have planners signed every night by a parent or guardian. Therefore, it can be a used as a valuable communication tool. School planners were made to order in June. If your child does not have a planner from the school, students are expected to have a good functioning planner. A dollar store planner may not be a sufficient and adequate tool to record  information. If you would like to purchase one for your child from the school, some limited planners may be available at a TBD price.

I look forward to learning much about your children over the next few weeks and meeting you at some point at the Meet the Teacher Evening. This is an exciting time with our new school being completed and many new things will be happening. Should you have any questions please feel to write to me in your child’s planner or call me at the school at 613-962-7867.
