Hello Hadfield Families...

Summer is here.  At this time I would like to wish all of you a happy summer.  I hope there is good weather, relaxation, and lots of quality time with friends and family.

The school will open again on Monday August 20th, 2018, and will be open each day from 8:30-3:00 pm.  Class lists will be posted after 4 pm on Friday August 29, 2018.  Please bring your child's OEN number with you to find out their classroom teacher for the 2018-2019 academic year.  Teachers will be waiting on the blacktop on the first day of school, Tuesday September 4, 2018.  The lists will be up all weekend.

I wanted the community to know that once again Chris Hadfield is an Ontario PLATINUM ECO School.  We are one of only 3 Halton schools who have held ECO status for  11 years in a row,. We are the ONLY Halton school to be a PLATINUM Eco-School for 5 straight years. 

See our Eco Hawks below receiving our certification seal for this year.  We needed a second plaque to hold all of our accomplishments.  Our director sent our students and staff a letter acknowledging all the hard work, collaboration, and persistence needed to achieve this goal.  A big thank you to the community for supporting us in our work to be a sustainable school.  We could not do it without you.

Looking forward to next year!

All the best,
Ms. Baxter
