School Re-Entry Meeting

The Board of Directors and administration are scheduling the September School Re-entry Parent Meetings for mid-August as follow up to our last parent meetings held at the end of June and early July.
 
As you are aware, the Government announced on July 21, 2020 that all Alberta Schools will reopen in September under Scenario 1.
 
We are holding on-line meetings for NHS parents to review key points of our plan and answer questions you may have.
 
An email that included a link to the meetings was sent to all NHS parents. If you did not receive the email, please contact tzarowny@newhorizons.ca
 
Kindergarten – Grade 3 – Monday, August 17, 2020 – 7:00 pm
 
Grade 4 – 6 – Tuesday, August 18, 2020 – 7:00 pm
 
Grade 7 – 9 – Wednesday, August 19, 2020 – 7:00 pm
 

An NHS Thank You!

This NHS thank you is coming out later than we hoped, but we still think it’s worth sharing.

Thank you to the NHS School community of students, staff, and parents for all you did to help us bring another school year to a close.

When you have a moment, you may want to view our Thank You Video

As well, thank you to all the families who have donated to our year-end b0ttle drive. We collected  almost $900.00! The funds will be used to help with school programs that assist an benefit students such as Student Council.

 

 

Bottle Drive Update

We collected $435.00 today!
 
The bottle drive continues tomorrow. Please drop your donations off at the designated area in the parking lot.
 
We will be collecting during regular school hours (8:30 a.m. – 4:00- p.m.). Those of you who are dropping your resources off after 4:00 p.m. are still welcome to drop off a donation if you have one.
 
Thank you for your support. Your generosity is amazing!

NHS Bottle Drive (June 21 and June 22)

 

 

 

Do you have refundable containers taking up space in your garage?

If so, we have a solution!

When you drop of your child’s learning resources that were borrowed from the school, feel free to also drop off those containers that are piling up!

They can be dropped off any time between 8:30 and 4:00 p.m. in the school parking lot on June 21 and June 22.  Just look for the signs.

Proceeds will go to the school account that supports student activities such as student council and/or student leadership initiatives.

Faces Photos

In response to the “Faces Challenge” that went out yesterday, some photos have been submitted.

Here they are!

And remember, just the photo without the addition of facial features such as eyes will work just as well!

Send in your faces to your child’s teacher or Mr. Z.

NHS “Face” Challenge

 

If you look carefully around you in your home, back yard, or when you are walking around your neighborhood, you will find “faces” of animals, people, or creatures.

Students at NHS have been given the challenge (see the video link on our Facebook Page) to find faces in their environment, take pictures of them, and send them to his or her teacher or to Mr. Zarowny.

We will post what has been sent our way, and if we get enough photos, we’ll make a poster.

The photos in this post are our very first submissions!

There is no need to identify the face in your image as was done with these photos. Feel free to send in just the photo and let us look for the face!

Happy Face Hunting!
