Grade 4 Student Leaders! – Update

Grade 4 students planning on reducing waste and helping the community.

 

Last week a post was made regarding Ms. Ewert’s Grade 4 and their “Waste in Our World” project.

A huge apology goes to Kiera who was also instrumental in organizing the project but was not named in the initial post! Our apologies!

The students continue to collect containers and do their part to reduce waste and provide assistance to local charities and community groups.

Halloween Day at NHS

Halloween Day at NHS

The morning began with a K-9 Costume Parade in the gym.

 

Draw prizes were awarded for students who participated in last week’s shoe drive. Over 300 pairs of shoes were collected! Thank you!

 

Students from Ms. Joly’s grade 5 class demonstrated their coding skills by having their “Spheroes” light up and roll through pre-programmed paths.

 

Ms. Graham prepared the K-6 students for a “mob dance.” Grade 5 student Brandon S. began the dance with an amazing routine into Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” That was followed by the entire student body joining in!

 

Ms. Araujo’s junior high leadership students created a haunted hallway ….

 

… and the leadership class also organized a Halloween Carnival for the elementary students.
