Principal’s Message – June 2022

It’s hard to believe I’m writing my last principal’s message for the school year. Two short weeks left of classes – unbelievable.  The last couple of weeks included a band concert, an art show, and a school dance. It has felt so good to have those aspects of school life back. Our school spirit has really seemed to have lifted. I hope you enjoyed these showcase of learning events if you were able to attend. These final two weeks matter!… Read More

Principal’s Message – May 2022

I’m a little late getting to this month’s message! The week flew by and I realized I had not yet connected with NHS families. I hope this message finds you well. Here at school we are suddenly immersed in all kinds of planning for various events and activities – it’s like someone flipped a switch and it’s GO TIME. We are preparing for a band concert and an art show, organizing learning trips, and will be hosting the first ever… Read More

Principal’s Message – March 2022

March has come “in like a lamb” so I guess that means it will go “out like a lion”? I hope not but I sure have been enjoying the sunshine these past few days. The days are getting longer, time seems to be flying by, and before we know it, it will be Spring Break!  With spring on the horizon we are in full planning mode for Grad 2022 as well as Grade 9 Orientation for our new incoming students.… Read More

Principal’s Message – February 2022

Goodbye January – Hello February January was quite the month … but despite the fragmented return to school we figured it out and here we are! I want to again commend our school community – students, parents, and staff – for their resilience and positive outlook as we managed remote learning and multiple weather-related closures.  Apparently the groundhogs say we have some more tough days of winter ahead but I guess we should be used to these long Manitoba winters… Read More

Principal’s Message – January 2022

Happy New Year! I hope the Christmas break brought you all some rest and relaxation. Most of us are probably glad to leave 2021 behind us and are looking forward to much happier and more settled times. In some regards the year is not off to a great start, but I’m hopeful that things are going to turn around and improve in the near future. Obviously, this was not the return to school we were wanting, but our teachers are… Read More

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
