Principal’s Report:
● Funding for school is site based. Government provides the funds, then administration
decides with consultations and after 1701s (numbers of students and students with
designations) how to allocate the funds.
● New SD 46 strategic plan is in the works. Continued focus on core values at CSS
● Core Values cards can be won by students to use for hot lunch
● We are seeing a great shift with students being more engaged and a part of that being
the cell phone policy
● FLEX will be available for students to connect with a teacher or catch up on homework
Community schools report:
Lia L and Wendy W are the community schools coordinators for CSS and HMB schools,
respectively. Almost all SD46 schools are community schools. Lia thinks of herself as a part of
the culture of care at CSS. She supports in areas such as: special events, like Grade 8 day and
Grade 7 Transition day; food for any students in the building who are in need, whether it is daily
or occasional, including applying for grants to fund food in our schools, as well as the BC Fruit
and Veggie program; and substance awareness programs.
