Junior Boys Volleyball
Congratulations to the Junior Boys Volleyball team on a great season.  The team narrowly missed the SWOSSAA Championship last night against the Sandwich Sabres.  After dropping the first two sets, the team showed a lot of heart by battling back to win the next two sets; forcing a fifth and deciding set.  The team fought hard the whole way but ended up falling 15-12.  Great effort.

Let's radiate empathy by walking in our peers' shoes to make CKSS a place of positivity.  Come out at lunch and join us in an activity by showing ways you have shown empathy or compassion in the past, or by sharing something that has affected you which shows empathy towards others.  Starting today, for the next week, please bring in new or gently used socks for those in need for the winter months.  We will donate the socks to Hope Haven or the Women's Shelter to show empathy towards others in our own community.  Remember to wear pink tomorrow.

Volunteer Hours/Porchlight Night
Now is the time to start thinking about giving back to our CKSS community during the holiday season.  One way to do that is to volunteer with CKSS and the SAA for the Goodfellows Porchlight Night.  Porchlight Night will take place on Monday December 2 with students meeting in the cafeteria at 6 pm.  We will canvass our local CKSS neighbourhood for donations of money, food or toys for the Chatham Goodfellows and then return to the school for some snacks and hot chocolate.  If you are interested in volunteering for the event, please pick up a volunteer permission form from the bulletin board in the hall between Student Services and the phys ed office.  Signed permission forms should be returned to Mrs. Crow as soon as possible.​
