Dear Chalmers Cougar Families!

As we approach another school year I am sure you are filled with varying emotions. The last year and a half has been quite different to say the least. I assure you that despite the Covid-19 pandemic your children will be safe, happy and learning at Chalmers.

Students will once again be kept in cohorts and be required to follow numerous health and safety protocols. We will practice physical distancing, proper hand hygiene and mask wearing while on WRDSB property. This year students in the same cohort will be able to share some materials and have mask breaks.

For the 2021-2022 school year we have 17 classes ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 6, with over 50 staff and 380+ students. We are a strong team of caring, compassionate educators and we value the relationships we have with our students, families and community members. It truly does “Take a Village” to raise a child. Unfortunately we are not able to have parents/visitors in the building at this time. We are more than happy to have phone conversations, email correspondence or to set up GoogleMeets so we can work together to support your children’s academic success and well being.

Our School Council meets(virtually) regularly, working hard to ensure our students have a wonderful learning experience. Over the last several years their fundraising goal was to raise money to enhance our playground. They purchased  a new playground climber, some musical structures for the existing climber and paid for games to be painted on the tarmac. Our students are thrilled. We encourage you to join us!

Despite the fact that we are in trying times, I am confident that we are going to have a rewarding year. Mr Bell, our Vice Principal and I  look forward to working with you all

Keep Smiling!   Sharon Morgan (Principal of Chalmers St. PS)
