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!
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!
