Head of School

Hello HNMCS Community:

Welcome to admissions season! The next 4 weeks are really key for us to get our “hidden gem” of a school out into the open. We want to sparkle for more girls and their families to see. In this regard, I am asking that you follow, share (not just like) and spread the word! We are on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and our numbers are growing - thank you - now I ask you to please keep talking us up on our social media, as well as on yours, and of course by word of mouth! Also please note that we have our first open house tomorrow at 10 am, our grade 9 Roundtable at 6 pm on Tuesday, November 9th, and another open house on Saturday, November 20th at 10 am. They all remain virtual, which does allow for us to host as many families as want to attend. Spread the word and have them RSVP so we can share the link. It is a beautiful time to help families find the next stop: Her Future is here at HNMCS.

We hope that your daughters enjoyed Mission and Heritage Weeks, Harvest Fest, and Spirit Week 2021 and that being back in school has allowed them to express themselves and share in the comradery that was reverberating through our walls.  

As we look ahead into November, we will be celebrating Remembrance Day on November 11th, before there is an early dismissal at 1:00 pm so that parent teacher interviews can begin at 2 pm. I know that teachers are looking forward to seeing you virtually for your appointments. I hope you have a blessed and relaxing long weekend and a Happy Halloween!

Sincerely,
Carrie Hughes-Grant
