Dear Chelsea Community,

As we move into October, I’d like to remind families of the upcoming Terry
Fox run. This is an annual event at Chelsea Elementary that brings us
together as a community, recognizes a Canadian Hero and raises funds for
the Terry Fox Foundation. In addition to this special day, there are several
activities coming up throughout the month. Please read the Upcoming
Events section carefully so you don’t miss anything (ex. school picture day!)

September was a wonderful and busy month. Thank you to all who attended
our Open House and AGM. If you were not able to attend, please reach out
to your child’s teachers for any information missed.

Throughout September
new student registrations have continued and our school population is now
at 312 students! I want to send a warm welcome to the new families that
have joined our school.

Every fall the school practices emergency procedures. This month we will
have a practice fire drill and a practice lock down. These practices are
supported by the Fire Department and the MRC and are done to ensure an
efficient response in the event of an emergency. Information regarding the
drills is attached; please let me know if you have any questions.

On October 15th your child’s progress report will be available through the
parent portal. See attached information for signing up if you haven’t already
done so. If you require a paper copy, email Margaret at

Thank you to the Home and School Association for the back to school BBQ!
