Well, it looks like Spring has finally arrived with the temperatures rising above zero and more daylight hours. Winter felt endless this year and I’m happy to say goodbye to the snow!

Here are a few things to make note of in the coming weeks:

NHS High School Musical Production

Final rehearsals are underway and we are proud to present High School Musical this week. Evening performances will take place on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, starting at 7:00 pm. There are still a few tickets available for each night and can be purchased for $15 at the NHS office.

Report Cards

Term 3 report cards will be issued on Monday, April 24 and will be available through the HSD Parent Portal. If you would like to discuss specifics regarding your child’s progress, please email each teacher directly to schedule a phone call or in-person meeting at a mutually convenient time.

2023/24 Course Selection

Course selection for next year will take place over the next few weeks. Our school counsellor will begin visiting classrooms this week to explain the selection process and review course requirements and options. Grade specific emails will also be sent to parents with details and deadlines once we are ready to formally begin the selection process.

The 2023/24 Student Course Guide is available on our school website under the student tab for those who want to review course offerings and descriptions. You may also contact Deanna Wiebe at dwiebe@hsd.ca with any questions you may have.

Showcase of Learning – Thursday, May 11 – SAVE the DATE!

We are pleased to invite you to our final Showcase of Learning on May 11. The evening will run from 5:30-8:00 pm and learning will be showcased in a variety of subject areas throughout all the grades. This is an excellent opportunity for parents to see what happens day-to-day in terms of the learning process and content focus for each course. This event will be student-led to allow parents and students to come and go between classrooms throughout the evening. A schedule will be sent later in the month with the classes that will be featured.

School Fees

Just a quick reminder to pay any outstanding student fees for the year. Online payments can be made by logging into the HSD Parent Portal, or cheque and cash payments may be made directly at the school office. We would really like to clear up all accounts by the end of June. Thanks so much for your attention to this matter.
