Text Books, Library Books, Locker Items and Lost & Found

Students who were unable to empty locker/return text books and/or library books should come to the office, as we have bagged/tagged all lockers that were not emptied on the last day of school.  If items are not claimed before the end of June, we will be donating/disposing of the items.  We appreciate your attention to this and hope to have all items returned to their proper owners!

Provincial Exams-Update

  • Those students who are writing Provincial Exams before the end of the June should refer to a previous post (below) which contained the times/dates for all Provincial Exams.
  • With regards to the picketing that BC Teachers are currently participating in, students will be able to access the building through the front door and gymnasium entrance, as there will not be any picketers blocking students who are coming to write exams.
  • Those students who are on bus routes will be picked up in the morning on the day of their exam. Those students who are bused and only are only required to be here for a morning exam should arrange alternate transportation if they would rather not wait at school for the duration of the day.  If this is the case, it would be appreciated if they mentioned that to their bus driver upon pick up in the morning, that way they would not be waiting for anyone.

A Little Bit About AVID!!

What is AVID? (Advancement Via Individual Determination)

AVID TRIP

For one class period a day, students learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking, probing questions, get academic help from peers and tutors, as well as participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college/university/trade schools more attainable.

Class Trip: On May 30- June 4, 2014 the AVID class went to Edmonton Alberta to tour the University of Alberta, N.A.I.T, Concordia, Grant MacEwan, and Kings University College. While on campus students viewed courses in session, spoke with professors, saw counselors in regards to courses they may need to take in high school, attended information sessions and experienced life at the university level. Students stayed in the University of Alberta’s dormitories.

A big ‘thank you’: The North Peace Secondary School AVID 11 class would like to take the time to thank the following sponsors who helped make their educational field trip to Edmonton possible. Aquavillis Solutions, Lake Point Country Club, Brandl, Jensen Excavations, Pimm’s Production Equipment, Diverse Trucking, Prospect Land Services, Northern Geo Testing, Fraction Energy Services, Yellowhead Road and Bridge, City of Fort St. John, and North Peace Secondary School.

On Friday, May 30th, NPSS students and staff dug deep and managed to raise roughly $300 for our local SPCA branch during the “Paws For A Cause” event.  Student Advisory Team (SAT) member Monika Lucas and classmate Charlie Allison put together the one-day fundraiser, and were instrumental in gathering donations during a lunch hour bake sale!  Well done NPSS.
