As we come to the end of the 2019-2020 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 Ms. Ahmadi, Ms.
MacKenzie, Ms. Correia 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 Mrs. Jensen and Mrs. La Rosa in occasional education assistant
positions which will conclude at the end of June. We appreciate their efforts to support our students and wish
them well in future endeavours.
Mrs. Ashton, Mrs. Chu and Mrs. Rashidian have been working in occasional Designated Early Childhood
Educator roles, which are also concluding. We would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them well as
they move forward to new prospects.
We have also been lucky to have Mrs. McLean, Mrs. McMillan and Mr. Campbell in teaching roles over the past
several years. Next year, Mrs. McLean will move on to Sir William Osler, Mrs. McMillan will be teaching at
Ferndale Woods and Mr. Campbell has accepted a central program role with the school board. We know that
they will serve their new communities and roles well, and will be missed by their CHPS family.
In exciting news, as the school year ends, Mrs. Shanahan will be starting her maternity leave. We send her and
her family our best wishes as she prepares for the arrival of a new baby next month!
Last month, we also said goodbye to Mrs. Hovius in the office. Mrs. Hovius had accepted a new position at
Alliston Union Public School. While we congratulate her on her new role, we will miss her smiling face in our
office when school resumes.
Finally, we wanted to share with you that Mrs. Kenny has been appointed Vice Principal of Hillcrest Public
School in Barrie. We would like to congratulate her on this appointment and we know that her new school
community, and the school board as a whole, will benefit from her being in this new position.
As we wind down the school year, please take some time to thank and say goodbye to these wonderful
professionals that our students have had the benefit of working with.
