Staffing Updatehttp://had.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/232Staffing Update<p> As we come to the end of the 2020-2021 school year, we wanted to take some time to thank some of our staff members who will be leaving us at the end of the month. We have had several occasional teaching positions that will be ending which include Mr. Keller, Ms. Doyle, Ms. Elsner, Ms. Kuse, Ms. McEllistrum, Ms. Shanmuganathan, Ms. Felluga, Ms. Chicorli, Mr. Taylor, Ms. Ward and Ms. Harding. They have been wonderful additions to our staff, and we wish them the best as they move onto future career opportunities. Our school has also been fortunate to have had Ms. Chiarizia, Ms. Edwards, Ms. Gooding, and Ms. Killam in occasional Education Assistant positions, as well as Ms. Klassen in an occasional Designated Early Childhood Educator position, which will conclude at the end of June. We appreciate their efforts to support our students and wish them well in future endeavours. </p><p>We have also been lucky to have Ms. Black, Ms. Murray, Mr. Furchner and Mrs. Stepanek in teaching roles at our school. Next year, Ms. Black, Ms. Murray and Mr. Furchner will be working in new schools within the Simcoe County District School Board and Mrs. Stepanek has accepted a role within the Simcoe County Elementary Teachers’ Federation. We know that they will serve their new communities and roles well, and will be missed by their CHPS family. </p><p>In exciting news, as the school year ends, Mrs. Iafano will be starting her maternity leave. We send her and her family our best wishes as she prepares for the arrival of twins next month! </p><p>As shared previously with you, Mrs. McCann will be leaving our school to serve as a full-time Vice-Principal at WH Day. We appreciate her efforts and dedication in support of our students and their families. We know that the WH Day community will be fortunate to have her there in a full time capacity. </p><p>Finally, we wanted to share with you that Mrs. Hackl will be retiring from a career in Education that spans over 30 years. Mrs. Hackl’s dedication and commitment to student achievement and well-being has had a positive impact on numerous students over the years, and CHPS has been so fortunate to have had been a part of her journey. Please join us in congratulating her on an incredible career. </p><p>As we wind down the school year, please take some time to thank and say goodbye to these wonderful professionals with whom our students have had the benefit of working.<br></p>

We have over 900 students who we will need to be placed and we have had staffing changes consistently throughout the pandemic. Therefore, we will not be able to accommodate any parent requests for classroom placements next year.

Grade 8 Graduationhttp://had.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/229Grade 8 Graduation<p>​Dear CHPS Grade 8 Families, We wanted to share with you some of our plans that we have in place to honour our Grade 8 graduating class on Thursday, June 24th. While nothing can replace the traditional in-person ceremony, our school team has come up with a few ways to celebrate our students’ accomplishments. On Thursday, June 24th, we are inviting our Grade 8 students to come to the front of the school to pick up their diploma and a few other surprises that the school has arranged for the graduates. Students are able to attend with two family members and are welcome to dress up. Grade 8 teaching staff, administration and some other staff members will be on site to welcome the graduates. We ask that students and their family members practise physical distancing measures, wear a mask (we will provide a mask for those who forget) and once they have collected their items (and have taken a picture or two), to head home in order to promote the safety of all involved. Students will have the opportunity to visit at the front of the school according to the following teacher name schedule:</p><p> 3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. – Emo/Legros </p><p>3:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Koson/CHPS students attached to other Learn@Home classes </p><p>4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. - Scigliano</p><p> Later that day, at 7 p.m., the virtual graduation ceremony will be posted, in the students’ Google Classrooms. The virtual graduation ceremony will also, be emailed out to our Grade 8 families. We would ask that families make plans to watch the virtual ceremony together as close to 7 pm as possible. We are hoping to avoid any “spoiler alerts”, so we would ask that when students and families are discussing the graduation ceremony with classmates and their families, that they inquire as to whether they had viewed the ceremony in its entirety, prior to having this conversation. We do not want to spoil any surprises that we have planned. While the current pandemic has prevented us from our traditional celebrations, we do look forward in recognizing our Grade 8 graduates as best we can in these challenging times. We are so proud of them!<br></p>

Picking Up Belongings & Return of Technologyhttp://had.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/228Picking Up Belongings & Return of Technology<p>​To our Dear Chris Hadfield Families, Who would have thought that another school year would have been ending like this, again? But what do we Commanders do? We keep our heads up high and keep going! Although we are not in the school together, please know that we care for and appreciate all of our students and their families. We hope that in the fall, we will have a smooth school year as we have had in previous years. Some dates that are happening here at CHPS that would need your attention are as follows: </p><p>Belonging Pick-up Days – On days of scheduled student belonging pick-up, students will be expected to work online as an Asynchronous day. School work will be posted on their Google Classrooms by their educators. We understand that there are families with siblings in various grades, but unfortunately the days scheduled for belongings to be picked up must be done on the scheduled day in order for us to ensure that Covid protocols are being followed. This may mean multiple trips to the school for families (only classes scheduled for their specific day will have access to pick-ups). </p><p>Days for picking up belongings, medications and dropping off borrowed technology from 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-3:00pm only on the following days </p><p> Thursday, June 24th – Grades 6, 7 & 8 </p><p> Friday, June 25th – all Kindergarten classes, Grades 1 & 2</p><p>  Monday, June 28th – Grades 3, 4 & 5 </p><p>When you arrive at school, your student picking up their belongings are only permitted in their classes. Kindergarten students are to walk to their exterior kindergarten classroom door (back tarmac). Students in portables are to go directly to their portables, and finally, all students with classrooms inside the building are asked to use the front doors to enter and exit the building only. A 10-minute window upon arrival will be given for student belonging pick up. All parents/guardians are kindly asked to wait either on the sidewalk or parking lot areas all while keeping social distancing measures of 2 metres. Masks MUST be worn by all students and anyone on school property during this time. If you would like to bring a card, craft, or gift for your child’s educator, you may do so on your child’s scheduled pick-up day. </p><p> Borrowed Technology: If your child has borrowed any technology (i.e. Chromebook, Internet Hub, etc.) we ask that all equipment be returned on their scheduled day, to either the child’s classroom teacher when picking up their belongings or to be brought to the front school doors where a staff member will receive them. We kindly ask, any Internet Hubs that were borrowed to be returned in their original box packaging and all Chromebooks/laptops be returned with their accompanying chargers. Technology can also be dropped off at the front doors on June 28th and 29th from 9:00 a.m to 3:00 p.m. </p><p>All Student Medications at school: Any medications kept at school for your child, i.e. EpiPens, Asthma Inhalers, Children’s Advil or Tylenol, Benadryl and etc., will be available for pick up in your child’s classroom on their scheduled day of pick up. If your child would require a new Yellow Medical form to be filled out and signed by a doctor for their medications for the new school year 2021-2022, one will be sent home in their medication envelope. A new Plan of Care form will also be in your child’s medication envelope that is to be filled out and sent to school in September. All medications returning to school with your child in September, must be accompanied with the Yellow Medical Form only if the previous medical form we have on file was signed by your authorizing doctor or nurse practicioner in 2019. </p><p>Lost and Found Items: We will have a Lost and Found Table set up with items for display. This table will be located at the front of the building with staff available to assist students if needed. Please take a moment to stop by. As we approach the end of another successful school year at CHPS, (even if it looked a little different this year!) your consistent support, co-operation and love is appreciated but more so, your smiling faces are missed by us every day. We thank you in advance for your support and co-operation with following the schedule for technology returns and belongings pick up.</p><p> We wish you all a healthy and safe remainder of the school year and into the summer break. </p><p>Sincerely, R. Dashnay<br></p>
