This week we had our first Townhall and it was great to recognize the upstanding character of many of our Navigators – from grade ones who were Resilient in working on their sight words to the grade nines who are rising up to be the Responsible leaders we know they can be! Keep Rising Up and Being You boys!
Picture day (individual, class and school-wide photos) will be on WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 23rd from 8:45 to 11:00am.

Please note, this date has been changed from what was previously published on the calendar.

Join us for the annual Terry Fox run starting at 2pm for the whole school. We will all gather in the Learning Commons for a Terry Fox video and explanation of the purpose of the run. We will then proceed outside for a quick stretch and then begin the run at approximately 2:30. Everyone should be finished by 3:15pm and there will be a special treat! Students may bring a contribution to the school or may make a donation online at: http://www.terryfox.ca/NorthPointSchoolforBoys. Our goal for this year is $4,000.
We are still in need of 4 volunteers to help along the running route. Please contact Mr. Kostecki if you can help out.
Dress for the weather as this will be held outside, RAIN/SNOW or SHINE!
A select group of grades 7-9 boys will tee off first thing in the morning and be taken to Blue Lake after they are done. Good luck Navigators!

The packing list is in the packages that went home earlier. The weather looks like it will be on the cool side so make sure your boys have enough warm clothes along.
