Hello CHHS Community,
I am very pleased to announce some key administration changes that are happening at CHHS. Recently, two of our Assistant Principals have moved along to other key positions within our school board. Assistant Principal Tim Kitchen took a specialist position last December. Tim will be replaced by Lis Martinez, currently an Assistant Principal at Senator Patrick Burns School. Furthermore, Assistant Principal Rachel Elliot will be taking on the role of an Assistant Principal at the new North High School. Robyn Jacobi, currently a CHHS resource teacher, will be taking on Rachel’s CHHS Assistant principal seat. All of these changes will come into effect as of January 30th. I am very excited with the new teachers that have agreed to take on the vacant CHHS administration roles. Lis Martinez and Robyn Jacobi are incredible teachers that both have the ability to quickly form positive relationships with students and to unconditionally support the ever-shifting, complex needs of teenaged learners. All CHHS students will continue to benefit from strong administrative supports as the new APs take on their new roles.
In addition to the new CHHS Assistant Principals, our learning community will also be welcoming in a new key administrative assistant. After serving at CHHS for several years, Shannon Lamb, our former head CHHS administrative assistant, has taken on a new position at Henry Wisewood High School. Shannon has left CHHS is prime condition for our new head Administrative Assistant to assume the role. Barb Rocca, currently at Kenneth Taylor School, will be taking on this important role on January 30. Barb is a personable and level-headed professional that will be instrumental in keeping the entire admin team and teaching staff focused and organized. We are really looking forward to her arrival.
The entire CHHS community owes a great debt of gratitude to Tim Kitchen, Rachel Elliot and Shannon Lamb for the countless hours of service, organization and compassion that they have freely given during their time at CHHS. They will be missed, however, we know that they are key professionals lending their skillsets to other areas of Calgary public education. We wish them all the best in their continued journeys.
