​May 26th, 2022. Dear Chris Hadfield Families,

 I am writing to you at this time to share an update about the administrative team at our school. As I communicated with you this past February, at the end of the school year, I will assume duties as Principal of South Bradford Elementary School. As a result, Heather Rocca has been appointed as the Principal of Chris Hadfield Public School for the 2022-2023 school year. Ms. Rocca is an experienced educator and administrator with Simcoe County District School Board. Currently, she is serving as Principal of Codrington Public School and is excited to be part of the CHPS community. I know that you will welcome her to our community, the same way that you welcomed me, five years ago. To provide some consistency for our school community, Ms. Telesco will remain as Vice Principal of Chris Hadfield Public School, working alongside Ms. Rocca. Ms. Telesco’s professionalism, relationships with students, staff and families, along with her passion for education will ensure a smooth transition process. Furthermore, Mr. Cranston has been appointed Vice Principal of Cookstown Public School. While we congratulate Mr. Cranston on his new position, we will miss his positive mindset, energy and dedication in supporting student achievement and well-being. We know how fortunate the Cookstown Public School Community will be to have Mr. Cranston as part of their team. These past five years at Chris Hadfield Public School have been some of the best of my professional career. Working alongside a dedicated staff, hard-working families and wonderful students has been the highlight of my Chris Hadfield experience. I look forward to continuing to work with this outstanding community in the weeks ahead as I conclude my leadership at Chris Hadfield Public School. Thank you, Robin Dashnay Principal
