Grade 6-9 students are asked to drop off all school resources on the last day of their exams.
Mr. Redick has sent information to the Grade 9 parents.
Remaining school resources can be dropped off at the school anytime between 8:30-3:30. Mr. Jackson and Mrs. Reimer will assist you in checking school resources in.
Come say good-bye to the teachers and pick up report cards and a special treat bag! The teachers will be along the sidewalk, by the staff parking lot, waiting for you. So that everyone can drive by the school in a safe manner, please follow the arrows on the route marked on the map below (one way traffic only). The schedule is suggested so we don’t have a traffic jam. If you have two sons at North Point, pick the time that suits you best – you don’t have to drive by twice. If the scheduled time doesn’t work for you, just pick a time that works better. We look forward to seeing everyone in person!
Our techie teachers are putting together an awards video to recognized our outstanding students. Stay tuned for more information on where to view it.
Last week, Minister LaGrange released guidance documents for 2020-21 School Re-Entry. Mr. Devost has put together a summary of the guidance document as it pertains to our school. You can read it here.
As with most things in the last few months, Mountain Day looked very different! We still rang the bell and we still had a fabulous surprise for the boys. We had the incredible privilege of being visited by coaching legend, Mike Babcock over Zoom for Mountain Day. Coach Babcock started with telling the boys about his challenges with reading as a young boy and encouraged them to be Resilient by being a builder of themselves and working on the things that are hard for them. A number of the boys and teachers had a chance to ask him questions and he wove our 5R Character traits into many of his answers and stories. Some of his key take aways were: treat people with Respect, do what is right when no one is watching (Responsible), maximize what you have (Resourceful), do your part so you can be great together, what separates a superstar from a star is determination (Relentless), and great moments are only great if you have people to share them with. We didn’t have a physical mountain to climb yesterday but the time spent with Coach Babcock was an inspiring mountain top experience none the less.
Last Friday we were treated to another fabulous art lesson by Maya Gohill. Building on the shading techniques the boys learned earlier, Maya guided them through an exercise on creating 3D effects. Her easy to follow, step-by-step instructions, using basic art supplies resulted in art work with great impact. Maya also showed the boys how using the shading techniques they are learning can be applied to drawing and painting portraits. Thanks for sharing your talents with us, Maya!
The Astronauts, the team that lead the whole year, was able to hold on for the win. Congratulations Astros!
