School Photos are happening on Thursday, October 21.

 

Attention Grade 12 students:  Grad pictures will take place beginning November 1 until November 12.  More information will follow about how to book an appointment.

Parents/Guardians are reminded about signing off on forms in School Cash online.  Your son/daughter received a notification yesterday in their homeroom class if they have any fees owing as well.  We appreciate if you can pay any outstanding fees as soon as possible.

We are still waiting on some green student data collection sheets to be returned to the school.  It is extremely important that we have accurate contact information in the event of an emergency.

SCHOOL CLIMATE

We are noticing disrespectful behaviours in the washrooms which are being used as a place for gathering, graffiti and drugs. This choice of behaviour is certainly not related to the values of Bernice MacNaughton High School.  Students will receive a consequence if they are involved in this behaviour. We are monitoring the situation closely. We are confident that Highlanders can make the right choice.

We are currently looking for a head coach for the JV Girls Basketball team as well as a team manager for the Swim Team. If you are interested in either of these positions, please contact Mr. Matheson at eric.matheson@nbed.nb.ca or leave a message at the school.

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

The province will reassess these rules on Sept. 27.”  Hadeel Ibrahim, Elizabeth Fraser · CBC News · Posted: Sep 13, 2021

Our students were able to enjoy a fun outside activity at lunch today with a corn boil and Tie-Dye session hosted by Student Government.  The rain did not dampen their spirits.

 

Every start to the school year we are required to review and practice our fire drills, emergency evacuation protocols along with our Lockdown drill.  On Monday, Sept. 13th an RCMP officer will be here to conduct our Lockdown practice drill.  Teachers have already reviewed the protocols for these emergency procedures and drills with students.    If you wish to read more about the Lockdown and Hold and Secure information with your child at home, please refer to the School Cash online forms.

 

The ”green” student data collection sheets have been sent home this week and require a parent or guardian to verify and sign off on the demographic information and add any medical concerns the school should be aware of.  Please return this form to the Homeroom teacher as soon as possible.

 

School picture day will be held on Thursday, September 23rd.  Please check with your child for the brochure that was sent home regarding pictures this week.

We want to wish our Highlander families a Happy Valentine’s Day on February 14th and a happy Family Day.    There will be no school on Monday, Feb 15th to observe the Family Day holiday.   We encourage all families to get outside to enjoy some family time in our winter weather through a walk, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, sliding, snowmobiling etc. or if the winter weather is not to your liking perhaps a family movie inside.

 

The 20-21 Yearbook is available for sale until March 1st on School Cash Online for 75$. After this, it will not be possible to order anymore yearbooks, so act fast!

 

Group B will return to school on Tuesday, February 15th.

 

We understand that the new expectations for online learning have been a quick change since semester one finished.   Please know that teachers and students are learning to adapt to this new format and undoubtedly there will be some growing pains as we progress through the month of February. 

 

Course selection information

This week students viewed a Powerpoint presentation about graduation requirements (Group A may need to view from the website due to interruptions) and selected 4 courses to visit during our Course Fair next Thursday, February 18th and Friday, February 19th.   These choices will inform students in selecting their courses for next year. 

 

Students will select their courses for the 2021-2022 school year on Monday, February 22nd and Tuesday, February 23rd.   Please visit our website at BMHS.CA to see more information about the Course Selection Process as supporting documents will assist conversations with your child.

Talk Mail - Feb. 2nd

Dear Highlanders,

Just a quick reminder that there is no school tomorrow, February 3rd due to today's school closure. The first day of school will be the group "A" only, on Thursday, February 4th. 

After a semester of experience with the one day in school and one day home learning system, we are changing the student expectations for second semester. During the students’ home learning days, they will be required to join a team meeting for each of their 5 classes. Teachers will either teach new materials or give expectations of the students’ work when they are home learning. Attendance will be taken daily for all students. We hope this will permit students to stay engaged in their learning and connected to the school.

Good Evening Highlander Family,


After a semester of experience with the one day in school and one day home learning system, we are changing the student expectations for second semester. On the students’ home learning days, they will be required to join a team meeting for each of their 5 classes. Teachers will either teach new materials or give expectations of the students’ work for when they are home learning. Attendance will be taken daily for all students. We hope this will permit students to stay engaged in their learning and connected to the school.


If there is a snow day tomorrow February 2nd, the first day of school for students will be Thursday, February 4th for group A and Friday, February 5th for group B. Evidently, if there is no snow day tomorrow, the school will start normally on Wednesday, February 3rd for group B.


Have a great semester,

As we move to the RED phase at midnight tonight, we want to assure our Highlander community that we are ready to receive students for learning in the last few days leading up to "final assessment week".  Please refer to the district communication to families this evening for more information.

During a RED phase staff will be actively screened upon entry in the building.   Parents/Guardians are required to screen your child each and every day before sending them to school.  In the RED phase, if your child has one symptom they must stay home. 

Yesterday and today, students taking credited courses received a form to OPT out of one of their final exams.  This form requires a parent/guardian signature and must be returned to school tomorrow for GROUP A and Thursday for GROUP B.
