The Week Ahead at NHS (September 9-13)

Welcome to the first full week on the 2019-2020 school year!

This week’s highlight is our Meet the Teacher Night on Wednesday, followed by a School Council MeetingJr. High Volleyball begins this week for students interested in playing for the Nighthawks.

As well, we will be having our Terry Fox Run on Friday. Our hope is that by Friday, each staff member and student will donate A Toonie for Terry to meet our goal of raising over $400.00. Students can begin bringing in their toonies to the office beginning Monday.
