Dear Parents and Guardians,
Happy New Year and welcome back to school!  After a couple of weeks of truly Canadian weather, here’s to hoping that you and your family were able to relax and rejuvenate while enjoying time with family and time outdoors!

Weather Watch
Just a reminder  that on days with less favourable weather, please keep an eye/ear on OSTA’s Website, the OCDSB’s  website and Twitter feed, CHPS’s Twitter feed, or a variety of the local news and/or radio stations.   If buses are cancelled, the school will remain open; however, parents are responsible for dropping their children off at school and picking them up at 3:25.  The OSTA website is also an excellent resource to, on a daily basis, check for bus delays.

CHPS Renovations Update
 Despite a slight delay in the start of the project, I am pleased to share with you that the upgrades to Carleton Heights proper (1660 Prince of Wales), are back on track and progressing well!  Click HERE to continue reading....

Dear CHPS Community,
This morning during our monthly Character Education assembly, we took pause to pay our respects to the passing our Nelson Mandela.  Using a number of video clips, our two student hosts, Sarah and Tassanie, led our school through a reflection on the character education traits of respect and acceptance and how they relate to the teachings of Mr. Mandela.   Click HERE to view our "Don't Laugh at Me" poem and video.   Click HERE to view our 'Tribute to Nelson Mandela' video clip.  Both of these videos were a part of our Character Education assembly.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the month of November; a time of year when it seems as though our school day begins and ends in near-darkness. Nevertheless, I am confident that it won’t be too
long from now that we will wake up in the morning to find that the city has been covered with a white blanket of soft snow. As drivers, many of us tend to furrow our brow as the
first snowflakes fall; but the excitement, energy, and enthusiasm of our children is unparalleled!

Progress Reports
This afternoon your child, in Grades 1- 8, brought home their fall Progress Report. Click HERE to read more.....
