Pink Shirts!

​A reminder that tomorrow is Pink Shirt Day in support of anti-bullying.

I also wanted to let you know that the pink shirts arrived this afternoon shortly after 4:00 pm. The shirts were shipped by the company from Saint John on Thursday. Unfortunately, the distributor apparently only travels to our area once a week. The shirts departed Fredericton this morning at 8:00 am. I apologize for the delay as we really thought that we would have received them in time to send them home with students at the end of the day. I realize this is less than ideal, but I am thankful that they arrived in time for tomorrow. We will get them the t-shirt delivered to students that have ordered them asap in the morning!

Have a wonderful evening,

Mrs. Bruijns

​Happy Friday Husky Families,

We have a few announcements for you this week:

1) On Monday, elementary students will be marking the 100th day of school with themed activities and such. If wishing to celebrate at home: have your child count a collection of 100 objects, snap a picture, and email it to your child’s teacher.  For those learners not yet counting to 100 have them work at counting 10 sets of 10 objects.  Teachers are looking forward to seeing what collections students count!

2) Next week is Winter Carnival week at C-NCS! Monday is Wacky Wardrobe, Tuesday is Winter Fun (please dress for outdoors), Wednesday is Pink Shirt Day to support anti-bullying, Thursday is School Spirit Day so team apparel is encouraged and Friday is PJ Day.

3) A reminder to caregivers to please send their children with water bottles as we have no drinking fountains available this year.

4) Our Administrative Assistant, Sandra Jenkins, is now on leave for the next 6 weeks. Ms. Jennifer Wilson will be filling in for her while she is away. Please be patient as Jennifer adjusts to her new surroundings.

5) There will be a virtual PSSC meeting on Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm. Please email or call the school with your email information if you would like to attend.

6) There will be a virtual Home & School meeting on Thursday morning at 9:00 am. Please email or call if you would like to join us.

7) Friday, February 26th is our monthly half-day for grades K-12.

Turn Around Day Impacted by School Cancellation

​Hello High School Huskies,

As we have had another cancellation today, this means that our Turn-Around Day gets bumped forward yet again. As a result, all 9-12 students will return to school on Friday, February 5th for the start of Second Semester.

We look forward to seeing you then!

Turn-Around Day Impacted by Snow & Mill Cove Lunches

Good morning Husky Families!

I wanted to let you know that when we have a snow day like today, our Turn-Around Days get bumped ahead. As a result, all 9-12 students will return to school on Thursday, February 4th. 

Also, if you had ordered Mill Cove Lunches for today, they will be available at the school for lunch tomorrow.

I hope you take some time to get outside and enjoy the snow! See you all again soon.

​Happy Friday Husky Families,

We have a few announcements for you this week:

1) Senior Project and Art 9/10 will be focusing on environmental sustainability projects this semester. These classes will be discussing how everyday items can be repurposed instead of going to the landfill. Thank-you in advance for your support.

We are looking for donations of the following:

* Gently used knit wear, t-shirts and other clothing items that can be cut up and repurposed for new creations.

* Plastic grocery bags, bread bags, pita wrapper bags, etc. to weave into blankets. Only soft durable plastic bags will work, like those listed.

* Sewing notions such as thread, fabric, backing, etc.

* Potting soil and pots for planting herbs and vegetables indoors.

We also welcome any community members who would like to share their knowledge in gardening, sewing, quilting, sustainability, etc. Please contact Ms. Harris at 488-3500 or through email at kelly.harris2@nbed.nb.ca to arrange for delivery of items or to schedule a virtual visit. ITEMS CANNOT BE DROPPED OFF AT SCHOOL WITHOUT PREVIOUS ARRANGEMENT DUE TO COVID-19 PROTOCOLS. 

2)  A reminder to Elementary parents to check the ‘Elementary Authors in the Spotlight’ link in the Extracurricular Clubs tab on the school website.  Twice monthly new student authors are spotlighted from each classroom. 

3) Pink Shirt Day is coming up in February. If you would like a pink shirt, you can order them using School Cash Online, or by sending a completed order form to your child's teacher. Orders are due by February 6th.

4) As there have been a few questions from caregivers, a reminder that Monday is a regular day for all K-8 students. The PL day that was originally scheduled on this day was moved to the end of October. 

5) Monday and Tuesday are "Turn Around" days for all 9-12 students. Second Semester begins on Wednesday, February 3rd. 

6) Semester One report cards for 9-12 students will go home on Wednesday, February 3rd.

7) Middle Level Girls Basketball practice on Monday from 3:00-4:30 pm.

8) Middle Level Boys Basketball practice on Monday from 4:30-6:00 pm. There will be no supervision for boys basketball players to wait at the school for their practice at 4:30. Students will need to go home at the end of the day and then return to school for 4:30.

Thanks for another wonderful week, Huskies! We hope you have a restful weekend.
