Message from the Principal:

Hello everyone....I would like to take the time to introduce myself…Lori Templeton.  I recently transitioned as the new Principal of CDCS at the beginning of February.  I am extremely excited to be working in the Chesley community, and I look forward to working with all students, JK – 12.  It is a busy and vibrant school, with lots of activity.  I am busy learning a great deal about many aspects of the JK – 12 system, and about your children.  Vice Principal Wendy Louwerse and I both believe that communication with parents is very important, and welcome the chance to get to know all of you.  I live in the Kincardine area and have two elementary-aged children of my own.  My daughter is in Grade 8 and my son is in Grade 6.

The past few weeks (and months) have been a very busy time of transition at CDCS, and there are many changes taking place here.  We recognize and cherish the diversity and wonderful strengths of all of our students and we will work hard to ensure the best possible learning environment. We place emphasis on creating a learning space that is welcoming to all students.  

Please stay tuned for a March newsletter, and for updates to the CDCS website.  Parents are also encouraged to visit the CDCS parents Facebook site.  We would like to thank all parents and guardians, as well as the entire Chesley community for the support and patience during all of the transition changes.  Communication is essential, and we look forward to working together.  Please keep in touch with questions, concerns and/or good news items!
