Have a wonderful March Break, everyone! When we return, please...have your children walk to school or ride the bus if at all possible. Our parking lots are too small to handle a large volume of cars. The south parking lot is dedicated to staff parking and is almost always full. The north parking lot is dedicated to daycare staff, daycare parents, and those dropping off children for Junior and Senior Kindergarten. The bus loop is closed until all buses have loaded and unloaded. We ask parents of children in grades 1 and 2 to drop their children off using the Glass Court entrance. We ask parents of children in grades 3 and up to drop their children
off using the Beaver Street entrance behind the school. Thanks so much for helping us to keep our children safe!

Grade Five Food Drive!
Some of our Grade 5 students have discovered that donations at the Newcastle Food Bank have really declined now that the holidays are over. These students have organized a food drive to help replenish the Food Bank's supplies. They are really hoping that our students, parents and neighbours will pitch in and support this important community organization by donating non-perishable food items. The drive will run from February 18 to the 28th.
For anyone dropping off non-perishable food donations, our collection bin is in the NPS foyer by the trophy display case.
Many thanks for your help! The Fantastic Grade Fives
We are pleased to tell you that, thanks to your support, we donated a small mountain of toys, non-perishable food items, toiletries and a cheque for over $1500 dollars to Bethesda House just before Christmas! It’s so nice to know that because of our joint efforts, over a hundred families had a nice Christmas this year. (The money collected came from ticket sales from our Christmas Concerts this year and from staff donations for a Dress Down week before Christmas.) Thanks to all our wonderful families and staff for your generous spirit!
