Parent Involvement Corner - As parents and guardians, we all want our children to do well in school and in life.  Research shows students are more successful when their parents are involved in their education.  But what does parent involvement include?  KPR's Parent Involvement Committee - which includes parent, guardian and community representatives - reminds busy parents they likely are involved in their child's schooling already.  That involvement may include communicating regularly with the school; helping your child with schoolwork; attending school events; and more.  During the summer, in particular, parents can help their children keep up their literacy and math skills.  Watch the school website over the next few months for practical, easy ways to help keep your children learning throughout the summer months.  For more information on parent involvement, visit www.kprschools.ca

Please read this important letter about internet safety.  KIK letter home.pdf
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!
