Wecome to Holland Chatsworth Central School

Principal’s Message

Welcome May !

 Here we are into May already; the year is flying past! May brings with it some regular school events and we are happy to be able to provide these experiences for students. Coming up in the next couple of months will be sports (interschool), our own track and field for grades 3-8, city track, field trips and end of year celebrations!

  I will list the events that I am aware of at this time in the Dates of Interest for May & June so families can prepare.

   A special congratulations to our Girls Basketball team as they are now the Bluewater District School Board District Champions !!  and a special thank you to staff that Coached the team and parents for your flexibility to drive to games and tournaments!   The District Championship Banner will soon have its own special place hanging in the gym!    WELL DONE !

  We ask that parents do not drop students off before the 8:45 bell as there is no supervision until that time.

Please remember to send your child to school with appropriate outdoor wear & some ways to keep themselves protected on sunny days!

This year staff and students will focus on a character trait each month. For the month of May HCCS will be focusing on responsibility.  Please keep our character education initiatives in mind and speak to your child about what it looks like, feels like and sounds like. Building strong character helps students develop life-long skills that will lead them to success.

My door is always open, and I value your input and feedback. My goal is to provide all students with an excellent education in a safe and supportive environment, in partnership with staff, parents and the community. You are welcome to chat with me either through a phone call, or email me at [email protected].

Attendance & Bussing

It is crucial that we know when and why students are away.  Please call the school 519 794 2729 x100 to leave a voice message for Ms. Brown, our office manager, or text the school cell phone at 519-385-0923 (We do not take calls on the cell phone).  When texting please ensure you include your child’s name and why they are away.  The first time you text, please include whose phone you are texting from so we can add to our contact list (contacts get deleted over the summer).

If your student is absent and we don’t hear from you, we will be calling you or the emergency contact.  Thank you for helping us with this important task.

Similarly, if your child is not riding the bus home, you can either call, send a note, or text the school cell phone. The earlier you can let us know the better. Bus lists are printed by 2 pm and when you call late in the day, it’s challenging to get that information to teachers before dismissal. Please do not email attendance information or bus changes as we may not get emails in time.

Pizza and Milk

Pizza, Subs and Milk are available for purchase through School Cash online, please check your email for contract updates. We appreciate Parent volunteers to assist in this.

School Community Council

The School Community Council will meet on May 3 @ 6:30.  We always welcome new parents and community members.  Come out to hear more about the wonderful supports provided by SCC!

IMPORTANT: If you are interested in volunteering within the school, your child's classroom or on field trips you must have a valid Police Criminal Records check. Please contact the office for more information.
Contact the school if you have an hour a week to volunteer!

Did you know there is a free math support program? Students in Grades 4 to 11 can get free math tutoring using Mathify
