NPSS volleyball is in full swing this weekend, as 14 teams are on hand hoping to play for the final match point! The opening game, which saw the Sr. Girls team host the Peace River Nomads, started with a special presentation which recognized an NPSS alumni volleyball player from the class of 2009~Dana Cranston! Our Ookapiks shared a moment with Dana before their first game…a game that seemed to be fueled by Dana’s inspirational message during the presentation!
The tournament will run all day Friday and Saturday so make sure to stop in and cheer on the home team! Go Ookapiks…Go Oscars!!!
We have a lockdown drill scheduled for Monday, October 20th.
Even though we are trying to ensure that all staff, students and parents are aware of the practice, we realize this type of drill can cause anxiety for some people.
If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let us know.
