to the Point – March 3, 2019


Welcome to MARCH !

Excitement is in the air when March comes around! Our 2nd term officially ends and the challenge will be to jump out to a great start in Term 3, our final term of the school year. With the weather starting to brighten, Spring Break and the Utah Trip just around the corner, there are multiple distractions in the air. Our boys will rely on their Resourcefulness in relying on all of the means they have available to launch into term 3 with a bang while they enjoy all of the fun activities that come with March days!  Our final Term sees us change our fine arts programming from Art to Drama after spring break, which means the fun and zany performance in June will soon be upon us!

PS. Save the date for the SPRING SHOWCASE on March 13 at 1-3 p.m. and see the amazing work the boys have done on their Friday Passion Projects.

PPS. Coming soon (before spring break) we will have our ‘TALK’ with astronaut David Saint-Jacques on the International Space Station! Media releases will be sent out as soon as our date is confirmed. Stay tuned for more info about that.

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

School-Wide

~~~ WEBSITE Updates

Pardon our dust as we will be making updates to our website over the next few months. If you use the PARENT link (top right) – it has been renamed USER LOGIN but it still takes you to the same place. This is where we keep the key resources you need as parents and faculty/staff at North Point.


~~~ OPEN HOUSE Update

The nicer weather certainly helped as we had a great Open House on Wed. Feb 27. Many potential families attended and there are more shadow days coming in the next few weeks. Thanks to everyone for spreading the word about our program. Our student and parent ambassadors did a fabulous job!

KYUDONG Kim

Many many thanks to everyone at North Point for making Kyudong feel welcome and like a true Navigator during his two months here. The Aviators will feel the loss! Special thanks to the Grade 7 class and Mr. Fagan. Now we must say goodbye – 안녕히 가세요 (annyeonghi gaseyo). Kyudong’s last day at North Point was Feb. 27. Safe travels and stay in touch with us! We gave Kyudong a few North Point items so the rest of Korea can find out about North Point School. Please send us photos of you in your hat in your home!


DIMITRI Farris

Dimitri and his famous dab…
Dimitri’s classmates all wrote and said something they will miss about him…!

The Aviators took another hit this week as Dimitri’s last day was Feb. 28. He was on a plane March 1 moving to London, UK with his mother Ashley. Great big thanks to both of them for providing local UK treats to EVERY student and faculty/staff. We will miss you. Enjoy the new adventure.
