As we approach the May long weekend, we hope that our families are able to take some time to relax and enjoy the outdoors. This
long weekend will certainly be different than previous ones, but it is still important to enjoy some family time and reach out to loved
ones (through virtual platforms). It has been a challenging couple of months, but the resiliency, co-operation and determination that
has been demonstrated within our community has been inspiring. I am so thankful to our dedicated staff, our hard working students
and supportive families. One of my highlights during this time has been reviewing all of the wonderful student work that is being
accomplished and watching videos and messages from students that have been shared with me by their educators. I truly believe that
when we come out of this, we will be a stronger, more united school community. Enjoy the long weekend! Be safe and stay healthy!
From the Library
Make someone smile! A fun family activity is to create kindness rocks. Kindness rocks are rocks that you paint and put positive
messages on and then leave outside for others to find and collect. All you need is rocks, paint and some markers.

Grade 8 Student Transitions
As students progress from elementary school to secondary school, important personal student information is shared which eases each
student’s transition to secondary school. Sharing this information also improves our ability to program effectively to benefit all
students. The collection and use of personal student information for such purposes is authorized under the Education Act. Please note
that all information used for the transition process is limited, secure and protected at all times. Please contact Mr. Daryl Halliday,
Superintendent of Education, if you would like more information about the transition process at Chris Hadfield Public School.
