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.
