What a wonderful time to celebrate Family – Family day falls officially on Monday, February 18 this year but why not celebrate Family Day every day during the month of February! I feel so lucky to not only have a wonderful family at home but also to have such a special family here at North Point.  From all of our teachers and staff to our students and parents, we have all come together around the common purpose of making education exciting, invigorating, challenging and enjoyable for our boys.  We encourage the boys this month to take on the important responsibility of being the best family member they can – both at home and at North Point.

Welcome Liam !

We have a new student in our Gr. 5 class. Liam B. joined North Point on Monday January 28. He was right at home since he spent a shadow day here the week before. Welcome to Liam and his parents Kendra and Curtis!

Gr. 1-3 Perogie Making

Many thanks to North Point parent Jen Kohut-Hunt for a fantastic session making MANY perogies at her shop, Jenny’s Delectables on Monday Jan. 28. Lots of full bellies in the Gr. 1-3 class after that time in her kitchen. The real question though is WHO WORE IT BEST (the hair net)?



Join us next week with Kyudong Kim in the next issue of to the Point as he shares his perspective of school in Canada.
