Happy Summer!

Posted by Alysoun Mckaylee

Dear Chartwell community,

What a pleasure to write you a few words as your new Principal of Chartwell Elementary! I was glad to meet many of you at the amazing Multicultural Night, and some of you at a few events in May and June such as the PAC general meeting and the Welcome to Kindergarten event!

I am looking forward to meeting all of you at the beginning of the school year but wanted to take this opportunity before going off on my summer holiday to wish you a wonderful summer full of happy and restful moments with your children. I hope you can enjoy a little downtime after such a hectic last few months! I have been following all the action from down the hill and am very excited to be a part of your wonderful school community!

Happy Summer holidays to all Chartwell staff and families!

Best Regards,

Mme Chantal Trudeau

Principal, Chartwell Elementary School

​H2Whoa!!! Div 7’s Hard Work as Planet Protectors Pays Off!

Posted by Aron Campbell

A visit from Dreamriders Theatre production was a terrific experience for our students in KG and Grades 1 through 5 today on our second day back from the Spring Break. Not only was it an entertaining and educational opportunity, but it related directly to our new BC Curriculum in the area of Personal and Social Competencies.

Reading Link Challenge: literacy, collaboration & enthusiasm = Pure Fun!

Posted by Aron Campbell

​Chartwell Gr 4/5 ‘s returned to school on this bright Tuesday morning, post Spring Break, not with dragging feet and reluctant angst, but instead with the SPRING of reading excitement in their step!! It was time for our Reading Link Challenge, our own version of a Literary March to speak!

The Reading Link Challenge involved a partnership between four West Vancouver Schools and the West Vancouver Memorial Library. It is a collaborative, fun, and engaging way to read books and answer questions in a ‘Battle of the Books’ format.

Through an ongoing close collaboration between Chartwell Teacher Librarian Doni Gratton and Michelle Yule, students in Divisions 5 and 6 were encouraged to read 6 selections of grade level titles including “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda” by Tom Angleberger to “Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library” by Chris Grabenstein.
