Save The Date . . . Wednesday, March 22

There are two events on the evening of Wednesday, March 22 that you may want  to attend.

 

  1. Parent-Teacher Conferences will take place from 6:00 – 8:00 pm in the CHSS cafeteria. Parents/guardians are encouraged to attend and to make scheduled appointments by having your child(ren) book your times with their teachers while in class between now and then.
  2. Parent Advisory Council will meet at 7:30 pm in the CHSS library. All parents/guardians of CHSS students are welcome to participate in this advisory group.

I hope we will see you at both of these events. In the meantime . . . enjoy the March Break!

Interim Reports

Semester Two interim reports have been mailed out. An interim report has been created for all grade 9 students and for those students in grades 10, 11, and 12 for whom at least one of their teachers has concerns about their academic achievement. Therefore, parents/guardians should not be concerned if an interim report does not show up in the mail. Whether or not your child receives an interim report, you are encouraged to come to Semester Two Parent-Teacher Interview Night on Wednesday, March 22 from 6 – 8 pm in our cafeteria. All parents should know who teaches their children and all students are benefitted when their teachers and parents are working together to support their academic success.

Please Call Us!

The Education Act makes student attendance a very important responsibility for our staff. We do a great deal to make our classes and our school a welcoming place where learning is engaging and everyone feels welcome. We expect all of our students to be in all of their classes on time every day. Of course, there are days when medical appointments, illness, and other important life events make students miss individual classes or entire days. If we don’t have prior knowledge that a student will be missing, we must phone home to make sure they are safe and/or to find out why they missed class(es).

We appeal to all of our students’ parents/guardians to PLEASE call CHSS (519-482-3471) as soon as you know your child will not be attending a class or a portion of the day or an entire day or more to inform us of the absence and to tell us why.

It doesn’t matter when you call . . . even in the middle of the night . . . we will get the message the next morning. If a student misses a class and we don’t know about it, there will be an automated call home at the end of the day  informing the parents of the absence. This is easy to avoid by informing us before the absence occurs. Students who miss class(es) or are late for class too many times will be subject to consequences in the form of detentions, in-school suspensions and, if the problems persist, even out-of-school suspensions.

Semester Two Kicks Off Friday

Semester Two classes begin on Friday, February 3. Starting the new semester means starting new classes and a fresh start all around. Students received updated timetables last week, so everyone knows what classes they have in the new semester. Our guidance staff is ready to assist any students who have decided to change their timetables . . . but they will only be able to make requested changes if there is room in the classes students want to add. Semester One final reports will be given to our students during Period 4 on Thursday, February 9.

All students in all classes in all grades are required to attend their final evaluations on these dates. All students are responsible to know when each final evaluation is being completed and to be in their classes ready to go before 9:00 am. Students will be required to stay in each final evaluation for a minimum of one hour and they will not be allowed to be in the halls after their evaluation on each day in order not to disturb other classes. Students with spare periods are not required to be here on that day, but they are encouraged to come for extra help with their teachers. Teachers will be available each afternoon to help students who have questions or who need help preparing for finals. On all of these days, buses will run at the usual times and our cafeteria will be closed. Please note that Thursday, February 2 is a PD Day and semester two classes begin on Friday, February 3.
