The 2017-2018 academic year is upon us and the school start-up has gone very well. Our administrative team (M & M) have been enjoying our new crop of grade 8 students and our Grad class has shown some excellent leadership to start the year.
Our Student Council organized a pep rally/welcome assembly, which was great. Our Terry Fox Run was also very successful. Thank you to Mr. Beckingham and his Leadership class, along with our PE Staff.
We have some of our Grade 8 students participating in an Adolescent Health Survey today. The research is being done in conjunction with UBC and the McCreary Foundation.
We had a good PAC Meeting last night and the turnout was pretty good. Our PAC provides us with some much needed support throughout the year. The only fundraising that they do is the Hot Lunch Program, which is only running 3 days a week, ay present- (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday). We have had issues getting enough parent volunteers so we do not have hot lunch on Monday and Friday.
We have up to 500 people signed up for the Chatelech2Go app, which is awesome. Students and parents can use this as another communication tool.
I hope that everyone has had a good start to their autumn. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and then it'll be our Provincial Pro-D Day (Oct. 20th) and then our Halloween Extravaganza.
I trust that parents and guardians will contact the school with any questions or concerns.
We look forward to another outstanding year at Chatelech Secondary School.
All the best,
