Congratulations to Grade 9 math students, Ellie Long and Ashlyn Elmy, who were accepted to participate in a prestigious mathematics workshop at the University of Waterloo. The "Think About Math" program is designed to ignite enthusiasm in high school girls for mathematics. It is a workshop demonstrating that math is fun, relevant, and leads to exciting careers. Only 40 students from across the country are selected and we are fortunate to have 2 students represent Centre Hastings Mathematics.
Come relax and read in the Learning Commons with your favourite book or choose from the selection we have to offer.
Enjoy complimentary hot beverages and snacks, participate in contests to win prizes, and join book talks to learn about new titles.
In order to participate, you need permission from your teacher. Permission forms are available in the Learning Commons.
Permission forms and a $2 donation to Food for Learning are due Tuesday, March 3rd.
* This is NOT a period to catch up on work or use computers.
Daniel Carcillo is a two-time Stanley Cup champion and mental health advocate. After winning the 2015 Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks, Daniel retired due to mental health issues in combination with post concussion syndrome. Since his retirement in 2015, he has become a mental health advocate and speaks openly about his struggles, along with how he overcame them. Ms. Stewart's leadership class will be supporting Mr. Carcillo's talk as we host him during second period on Friday, February 28th.
Regular daily attendance is important. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to be successful in their classes, have a sense of belonging, and remain involved and committed to school. Make school a priority and come to school rested and ready to learn. Our dedicated staff at CHSS are waiting for you. If your child will be absent, please call us at 613-473-4251 to let us know.
February 19th, 2020 will be the first I Read Canadian Day! We are encouraging everyone to take 15 minutes during the day to read something written by a Canadian - be it a novel, short story, poem, news or magazine article, or scientific journal. You can read alone, in pairs, or a group. When you’re done, we ask that you share what you read with someone else. Need help finding something? Come visit the Learning Commons and speak to one of the librarians.
Eyes to the future, Centurions! Start thinking about what you want to do next, in school and beyond. The guidance team will be coming around to your classrooms starting on Friday, February 7th and continuing to the 27th. Check your transcripts to make sure you have the credits you need to take the courses you want. Grade 12 students wishing to return must make an appointment to meet with Mrs. Scaletta.
Early Progress Reports will be walking home with students on Monday, March 2nd. Be sure to check with your Centurion(s) when they get home.
