Welcome Back!



We would like to welcome our students and families back to Champlain Elementary School!!


We are so very excited to see our school families and welcome our students into their new grades and classrooms. I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome some new staff to our CES team. Miss McInnis will be teaching our 2/3 classroom and Miss Courtney will be joining our grade 4/5 teams with Mrs. Smith and Mr. MacQueen. I would also like to welcome our new Custodians who come to us as part of the AVRCE team; Mrs. Cranton and Mrs. Atwell. We are very lucky to have these new staff members and they have very quickly become part of our CES team who are here to support our students. 

Our transition from a P3 school working with Nova Learning to becoming part of the AVRCE Family of schools has gone very smoothly with both groups working together during the transition to ensure the school is ready to the best of all our abilities for the students when they return on September 8th.

Although our returning to school is being guided with new norms and our classrooms and routines may look a little different from last year it is important to remember that the “Heart” of our school has not changed at all. Your children’s teachers are ready to welcome their new classes and have worked hard to create lessons that still address the curriculum outcomes while continuing to encourage curiosity and growth mindset. We continue to focus on bringing happiness and joy to learning as we inspire our students to become “lifelong learners”. 

I will continue to add new information to our website throughout the school year and hope that you visit our site to see the fun our students are having at school as they embark on their new adventures in learning this year. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with our site and note that new letters and information will be added at the top of the right hand column in a PDF format that you will be able to open and read. We will also work to change our pictures and information in our Tabs at the top throught out the year as well.

Thank you 

Jan Ross

CES Principal
