Volunteers needed for CHHS Exam Coat & Bag Check

Hello CHHS Parents:
 
The school has asked parents to assist in operating a coat & bag check during exams in June. 
 
For those of you who might not have participated in this before, the school operates a coat & bag check for students during final exams.  Students arrive for their exams, turn in their belongings and are given a ticket that allows them to pick up their belongings after they are released from their exams.  The students no longer have access to lockers and cannot take their items to the exam rooms, thus the need for the coat & bag check.
 
We are looking for 4 volunteers for each shift.  Volunteer sign up has been set up for each of the exam dates and times.  To see the dates and times and to sign up, paste the link below into your browser.

Thank you for considering how you might be able to help.  Please pass this along to any other parents you know who might be available.

Calgary students sweep social media with mental health campaign

By Heather Yourex and Mia Sosiak Global News

 

A social media hashtag created by Calgary high school students to raise money and awareness about mental health has exploded across Canada.

 

The hashtag #CHHSLetsTalk began with a modest goal of raising a few hundred dollars, but has been trending nationwide since Monday.

 

Brett Rothery, a Crescent Heights High School student, helped launch the campaign.

 

Over the holidays, Rothery, 16, and a few friends, handwrote 1,400 Post-It notes carrying inspirational quotes and the #CHHSLetsTalk hashtag.

Parent Access to Student Progress

 

D2L

As many of you are aware, the CBE now has a number of tools to help parents and students track and monitor their progress.  Teachers are using either HomeLogic or D2L technology to make marks available to students and parents  .  Please note, if teachers are using D2L as a marks program, you will not see their grades in Teacher Logic until the end of the term.  However, you can access student marks through D2L.  Parents can go online and access grades and login history. Parents have personal parent access by logging into the CBE MyAccount application https://webapps.cbe.ab.ca/myaccount/Account/LogOn and clicking on the D2L link. The site will provide access to student grades and login information.

HomeLogic

A parent portal called “HomeLogic” was recently introduced by the Calgary Board of Education. This online environment allows parents/legal guardians to check their child’s progress and attendance online throughout the school year. The specific information that can be viewed about your child is their attendance, schedule, transcript and demographics. In order to access HomeLogic it is important that the school have the parent’s/legal guardian’s current email address on file. Please email it to crescentheights@cbe.ab.ca. This is where your username and password will be emailed at the time of registration to HomeLogic. Once the school has your email address, please visit the website https://sirswebapps.cbe.ab.ca/homelogic. Click on the “New User?” prompt to create an account. Please note you will need your student’s CBE ID number to register as a new user.
