Principal’s Message – November 2021

Someone told me today that there are 55 days until Christmas. Yikes! I’m not quite sure what to do with that information but I think I’ll just take it one day at a time. I hope this email finds you well and that your own days are manageable.  Here are a few things to be aware of in November: Spectators at School Sporting Events Effective today, November 1, HSD is permitting limited spectator access for varsity volleyball games with the… Read More

Principal’s Message – October 2021

September has flown by and fall is in full swing! There has been a buzz of energy throughout the school as students and staff re-establish school norms and develop a new culture of learning. The transition back to full time in-person learning has been challenging in some ways but we know the past year-and-a-half has been very difficult and understand that it will take some time to get into a comfortable groove again. The students always look forward to getting… Read More

Principal’s Message – September 2021

Wow, we are back!! Our school is filled with life and energy again! It’s been such a pleasure to see all the reconnection happening. The first few days of school often tend to feel a little busy and unsettled, and I think this year we are feeling it even a little more as we return from a pandemic year of learning. I’m happy to report that things are already starting to feel more calm today as we begin to settle… Read More

Principal’s Message – June 2021

Well, here we are. It’s June. Two more weeks of classes and that’s it – we made it! It has been such an unpredictable year but somehow we managed to power through and I have to say, I think we all did pretty well, all things considered. I have bragged to my colleagues several times over the year about how great the community of Niverville is and I want to sincerely thank you for your patience, understanding, grace, and support… Read More

Principal’s Message – May 2021

We are all working diligently to make the most of these final two months of school and I want to thank everyone for their ongoing efforts to follow the public health orders and safety protocols at school. It can be wearing at times but so far our diligence has paid off and our school has remained open for in-person learning.

Principal’s Message – March 2021

Country singer Luke Bryan sings that “days go slow and years go fast” and although that song (Most People Are Good) was released in 2017 it seems like a fitting sentiment for this particular year. There have been days that have just dragged, especially during the height of the lockdown, but all of a sudden it’s March. How did that happen? The beautiful sunny days we’ve had in the past couple of weeks have provided some feelings of hope and… Read More

What a pleasure it’s been to have our students back in the school! It’s been so nice to get into classrooms and visit with kids again. They all seem glad to be back too 🙂 … at least for the most part. Now we just gotta figure out a way to get everyone to turn their chromebook camera on so we can see their lovely faces during online classes! The transition into semester two this week was smooth and students… Read More
