Congratulations to Mariah and Mark on finishing 6th place at the district NBA 2ball challenge which took place at the UNB Currie centre. Mariah and Mark faced off against all schools from the Fredericton area Anglophone West School District and some Francophone schools and were able to finish 6th. What a great accomplishment. Congratulations and way to go! Wolamsotas!
The Chsmes Basketball had its first regular season games of the season Thursday at lunch recess.

Everyone is welcome so please come check our hoops action. Next league action is scheduled for Tuesday at lunch. See you there! Wolamsotas!
Welcome back all CHSMES students, staff, and families. I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays with family and friends. We are sure looking forward to an awesome 2018!
Our latest CHSMES student-athlete is Myla Atwin. Myla is a grade 5 student who is great leader in and outside of the classroom. Myla strives at always trying to do the right thing and is eager to learn new things. Currently she plays on the Lions (A-team) under 12 girls which plays in the Northside Minor Basketball Association. She was a member of the CHSMES Cross Country team, and raquet club. She also plans on playing in the CHSMES basketball league which starts next week.
I sat down with Myla and asked her a few questions about sports and her favorite things. She stated that her favorite sport is basketball. Her favorite sport in basketball and when she grows up she would like to be a basketball coach. Her favorite food is caeser salad!
I asked her if she had any tips for students that were new to basketball and she said "to never give up trying" and "always try your best"!
Keep up the great Myla and we are proud of you here at CHSMES! Wolamsotas!
Our two featured student athletes are Madden Underhill-Brooks and Zander Sacobie. These two boys are representing CHSMES and St. Mary's in the local minor hockey league working hard trying to improve their skating and shooting skills. They both tell me they really love the game of hockey.
Madden is a kindergarten(k5) who is playing his first year in timbits hockey. Madden plays on the Canadiens out of the Willie O'Ree Arena. His favorite team is the Montreal Canadiens and when Madden grows up he would like to be a police office. His favorite game day food is chicken nuggets and fries.
Zander is part of the early years at CHSMES in K4 program. He is also in his first year of timbits playing for the bruins also out of the Willie O'Ree arena. He would like to be a NHL goalie when he grows up for the Boston Bruins. His favorite game day snack is marshmellows!
Both of these boys are working hard in and out of the classroom and I am looking forward to seeing them grow into fine young student athletes. Keep up the good work boys and remember.......Wolamsotas!
Students will be skating at Willie O'Ree on the Fridays listed below up until the Christmas break. Our first skating date was today with a great turnout of students and parents from CHSMES. Parents please feel free to join us whenever you can. Just a reminder to make sure that your son/daughter have proper clothing for skating as well as skates and helmets. We have some skates and helmets at the school to borrow if needed.
Thanks and hope to see you skating.
Students from grades 3-5 will skate from 9:30-10:15 and students from grades k-2 will skate from 10:30-11:15.
Throughout the course of the school year CHSMES will be featuring different student-athletes. The first feature athlete is Terryn Bear. Terryn is a grade 3 student who loves to run and is becoming a great role model for all students here at CHSMES. Terryn joined the CHSMES cross country team this fall and has had outstanding results in every race she has participated in. She is the first student in CHSMES history to win a District Championship Race.
Her accomplishments include: 2nd Place- Gibson Neil Elementary race, 1st Place- Henry Park race, 1st Place-McAdam Ave race, 1st Place-District Championship @ Nasis Middle , 2nd Place-Provincials @ O'Dell park, (Atlantics November 4, 2017)
Terryn's success is a result of not only her natural ability to run, but the extra practice that she puts in daily. She works extremely hard at every opportunity to practice. She is a fierce competitor and loves the challenge to race against anyone who lines up with her. She has really demonstrated the power of Wolamsotas, that if you believe in yourself and try your best than anything is possible.
Terryn has one race left to go this Cross Country season. This past Sunday she placed second in the Provincial Championships and which gives her the opportunity to represent Team NB at the Atlantics in Moncton November 4th. We are very proud of Terryn and wish her good luck at Atlantics! Wolamsotas!
Welcome back to school CHSMES student-athletes! I hope you had a great summer with your family and friends. I am really excited for what the upcoming school year has to offer!
Our first extra curricular club will start next week with a sign up for the CHSMES Cross Country team. Get your running shoes on and start practicing, the first race is September 20th!!!!!
See you on Tuesday!
After 9 days of fierce competition, the defending Champions from Grade 5 are in the lead. Grade 2 is very, very, close behind.
Its that time of year again for the CHSMES Wulastukw Challenge. The Wulastukw Challenge is a school wide pedometer challenge where every student can run, walk, or jog for the first five minutes of Physical Education class wearing a pedometer. At the end of the five minutes steps are recorded. The top ten scores from each class are added up to give each class their score for the day. The first class to take 150,000 steps is the Wulastukw Champion.
The Wulastukw Challenge was created to encourage students to get moving. It has really turned into a great competition that encourages students to be active while working together for a common goal. It also encourage students to create daily step goals and to believe in themself! Wolamsotas!
The Grade 4 class from last year was the Champion. Can they repeat? Guess we'll have to wait and see!
Check out the results from the first five days!
The 3rd place final for the CHSMES basketball league will be tomorrow March 30th at 12:20 in the CHSMES gym.
The Championship game will be Friday March 31st at 1:00pm. Come check out some great hoops action!
