This week will be a busy one for the Chris Hadfield team. We have a group of staff members who will start organizing
student personal belongings to prepare for distribution on Thursday and Friday. We are doing are absolute best to ensure
students are able to retrieve their items, but the reality is that we cannot guarantee that everything will be returned. If
there is something that you really hope to have returned, please reach out to your child’s teacher. Please refer to the
email that was sent out on Friday regarding all of the specifics and follow the directions. We appreciate your patience,
understanding and kindness as we work through this process.
Also happening this week, will be Grade 8 Graduation Photos that will be taken in our parking lot on Thursday. Unless you
have a scheduled appointment, we would ask that you stay away from this area if you are coming to school for the pick-up
of student belongings.
It is hard to believe that we are in June – harder to believe that we all haven’t been together since March 13th! As we
complete this final month of the 2019-2020 school year, I choose to focus on how grateful I am to be part of such an
extraordinary school community, filled with dedicated staff, supportive families and inspiring young minds.
From the Library: Family Memories:
An amazing way to reminisce about family memories. Find a jar or box and take time filling it with handwritten memory notes when you want to add
something. At the end of the year, you open up the jar and read about the amazing memories you’ve had.

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.
