Other Important Information
All students are required to complete a Final Culminating Activity for each subject and should know the date, time and location of each of their FCAs.
All students who are absent from their FCA will receive a mark of ‘0’ for this Final Evaluation. If an illness prevents a student from writing an exam on the assigned day and time, a doctor’s note must be provided to the office immediately upon return from school.
Examinations and Course Culminating Activities will be run in their regularly scheduled classroom. Any changes to this will be posted in the Front Foyer near the Main Office.
Students are to remain in the examination room for a minimum of 2 hours.
Once examinations begin, all lockers and hallways are out-of-bounds. The library is available during the examination period for quiet study.
Students are to return their library and textbooks on or before the day they write their FCA. If textbooks are required for studying purposes, students are to bring the book to the FCA. If books are lost or damaged charges will be added to the student account.
Buses will run at normal times during the final evaluation period.
Next Wednesday, January 17th and Thursday, January 18th, our Grade 9 Math students will be taking part in the Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics created by EQAO. This assessment is administered to all students who are currently in Grade 9 applied or academic mathematics courses in Ontario. The assessments will consist of two booklets that are administered over two days during regular class time. Students can expect to see both multiple choice and short answer questions.
Unlike in Grade 3 & 6, this assessment will be worth 10% of the student’s final grade, which means that being in class on time next Wednesday and Thursday is vitally important.
Centre Hastings has a proud tradition of being among the highest performing schools in the province. We know that our teachers and students have been working hard to prepare for EQAO in an effort to continue this excellence.
If you have any questions about the assessment, please do not hesitate to contact your son or daughter’s teacher.
On Tuesday January 9th at 6 pm we will hold our annual Grade 8 Parent's Night. Parents and students are invited to join us for to learn more about classes, pathways and student life at Centre Hastings Secondary School.

We would like to congratulate Moira Wilson, Zackary Walker, Jonathan Naylor and Emerson Bonter who have been selected as members of MP Mike Bossio's Constituency Youth Council for Hastings-Lennox and Addington.
These students will join 14 others from around the riding to work together to learn about the Federal government and topics that matter to them.
The CHSS Sound Acadmey Christmas Concert will be Monday Dec. 18 from 7 - 8 pm in Gym 3.
