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. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that things continue smoothly until the end of June (insert cautious optimism here 🙂). I… Read More

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

Principal’s Message – February 2021

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

Principal’s Message – December 2020

Wow, can you believe the weather we’re having?! Winter is not my favorite season but these mild temperatures certainly make it a lot more bearable. In an effort to embrace our Canadian winter, my husband and I bought snow shoes this year, intending to stay healthy and active as we trek through the snow. Just our luck, no snow – but I know it’s coming! Until then I will enjoy the balmy weather 🙂 We are now in our third… Read More

We all continue to navigate our way through an ever-changing situation and I am proud to see our NHS students, families, and staff taking steps every day to keep each other safe and healthy. We appreciate your continued use of the Covid-19 self-screening tool and that students are staying home when they are sick. Schools continue to be safe in spite of rising case numbers throughout the province. Although our community has moved into the “critical red zone”, I am… Read More
