NPSS will be moving to paperless reporting in the months ahead. To help parents, we will be sending out parent e-mail to explain how to log on to the Parent Portal as well as how to navigate the on-line environment of MyEd. Those parents who have not yet logged on to the Portal should check their emails for new login information. Please refer to the following document if you have any questions.
Please see the attached letter clarifying student admission and school choice from the Assistant Superintendent, Stephen Petrucci.

Doodle 4 Google Canada is a national contest inviting students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 to redesign the logo for the Google.ca homepage for a day.*
As Canada blows out a whole lot of candles for its 150th birthday this year, what better way to celebrate than by asking students to imagine what the next 150 years will look like? Google believes our youth hold the key to a bright future for Canada, and can’t wait to see what their optimism, creativity and imagination give rise to.
The winning doodle will be featured on the Google Canada homepage for 24 hours. The winning student will also receive a $10,000 university scholarship, a Google Chromebook, and a $10,000 technology award for their current school along with a trip to the final event on June 13, 2017.

AVID is an elective for grade 10 and 11 students. Students will prepare for their post-secondary experience by working on skills and visiting different campuses in the spring. The focus is on collaboration, writing, reading and inquiry. Organization is also a key element for AVID. Students participate in weekly tutorials where time is provided to work on their other courses. AVID also promotes student leadership through events like Relay for Life, snow shovelling for seniors, bake sales, Pitch in Day and Link Crew. Mr. Redford, Ms. Harrison, and Mr. Graham will be coming around to classes next week with more information.
