YEARBOOK

Sneak peak at this year’s cover design.

This is a year that is going to be remembered for a long time!  With so much changing daily and uncertainty around the world, one thing is certain – our school yearbook will be published and will document this incredible time in our lives.  It’s one for the books!

We need your help

We are looking for pictures and stories of what school at home looks like for YOU! Send us pictures of your son doing his school work at home and the space you’ve created for leaning. Send pictures to Mrs. Reimer: dreimer@northpoint.school

Still need to buy a yearbook?

You can order a yearbook online at ybpay.lifetouch.ca. The school id is 13427420. Order deadline is June 19. Only those yearbooks that have been paid for will be ordered.

We have had 20 families who have reserved their yearbooks by paying for them already. If you don’t remember if you have paid for a yearbook or not, please go to the website above and click the “Get Details of Your Previous Orders by Email” button at the bottom and use the email address of the mother of the student. I have entered in those who have paid by cheque using the mother’s email address.
