Dear Parent Community,

November has arrived and with it, the cooler weather. It’s time for students to bundle up and protect themselves from the inevitable wind, wet, and cold!

I would like to introduce and welcome Adele McLaughlin, who has joined the office staff of Chelsea Elementary to work alongside Ms. Margaret. You will soon see another new face in the office; I would like to wish a warm welcome to Natasha Bourdeau who will join our team, replacing Ms. Heather. Ms. Heather is taking a leave for the remainder of this school year and we wish her luck in her new adventure.

Term 1 Report cards will be accessible on the Parent Portal on November 19th. We want to go ‘paperless’ so please let us know if you need support registering. Parent-Teacher Interviews will take place on November 28th between 5:00 and 7:30 pm and on November 29th between 9:00 and 4:00 pm. The interviews will be scheduled using Sign-Up Genius, an online service, and parents will receive an email with details on how to sign up. Please let the office know if you have any difficulties with this system.

The Chelsea Elementary Remembrance Day assembly will be held on November 11th at 10:45 am. We would like to extend an invitation to parents and family members who have or are currently serving in the Armed Forces, to attend as our guests. Please let the office know if you are able to join us.

Thank you to the Chelsea Home and School Association for all the hard work that went into the Halloween Dance! It was a fantastic evening and money raised will be directed toward school technology initiatives.

This month we are exploring the value of honesty with the students. Please take time to discuss the importance of being truthful with your child. Being honest means more than ‘not lying’, it also means making kind and responsible choices.
