Here we are again, at this time of year when no one has any idea who they will see, where their classes are, or if they even have lockers in the mix of things. The confusion and newness of the situation can be extremely stressful for everyone, especially our Grade 10s that are coming in this year.
I have heard that there are MANY new students coming our way, and that really excites me. I know how stressful it can be coming into a new school, so if you are reading this, I would like to give you a little pep talk to start off your school year the best you can.
I know it can be hard going into a new school, with new people, but you will get used to it. And, at the end of the day, you will enjoy it. Just take this time to be with friends, join clubs, and do what it is you want to do, because this will be the easiest year of high school for you. Make the most of it, because before you know it, it will be the end of the year and you will be wishing for it all back.
And with that, I, along with all of the students and staff that have been at CCH last year, welcome you to the school, and hope that you learn as much as possible.
