Hello Lakers, Parents, and Guardians,

A couple more updates before the long weekend:

 

Athletics
Yesterday, I announced that this Friday the Lakers Football Team would play Lindsay Thurber at CHS. THIS GAME IS UNFORTUNATELY CANCELLED. Our next football game will be against George McDougall at 7:30 P.M. on Friday, October 15, 2021, at CHS.

Sarah Wells Presentation
On Tuesday, October 12, 2021, all staff and students will watch a virtual presentation by Canadian Olympian and Pan-Am Silver Medalist, Sarah Wells. A few years ago, Sarah presented at Chestermere High School's Leadership Conference and now brings her message of resilience and motivation to all our students. Here is the link to Sarah's website for more information.
Long Weekend Schedule
CHS is closed tomorrow for a staff Professional Learning Day. The school is also closed on Monday. We are looking forward to seeing your children back again next Tuesday.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the week.
