Semester One midterm reports were given to our students on Tuesday, Nov. 17. Parents and guardians should look over the report and see if their child's achievement matches their expectations. Also, some teachers will have indicated a request for a meeting with a parent under circumstances in which the student is at risk of not obtaining a credit for academic or behavioural reasons. Parents/guardians are always welcome to call the school to connect with our teaching staff to discuss a student's progress. The provincial report card also includes a sheet that should be completed by the student as a reflection of her/his progress so far, then the student and parent should sign the form and it should be returned to the school.

Semester One interim reports are coming in the mail. They have been processed for all of our grade 9 students, but only for students in grades 10, 11, and 12 who are, in the opinions of our teachers, at risk of being unsuccessful in a course if the identified concern is not addressed. So, don't be surprised if you don't receive an interim report for your child, or if one child receives an interim report and another does not, or if an interim report contains information from one or two teachers, but not the others. Interim reports provide an indication that a student will be more successful in a course if certain identified concerns such as behaviour, study habits, and attendance are addressed. The best way to address those concerns is to come to the CHSS Parent-Teacher Conference Night between 6:00 and 8:00 pm on Wednesday, October 14 to discuss your child's education with her/his teachers. You can ask your child to make specific appointments for you or you can just show up that evening and wait for the opportunity to speak with the teachers. Of course, you are always welcome to phone us (519-482-3471) to discuss your child's experiences at CHSS.
