Informal Reports in October

October is “Informal Reporting” month.  Parents will receive an informal report from each one of their child’s teachers by October 30th.  Informal reports are usually in the form of a phone call, a written interim report, emailed interim reports, or conferences.  Reports are to describe what the student is able to do, the areas of learning that require further attention or development, and ways the teacher is supporting the student’s learning needs.  Where appropriate, the reports may include ways the student or parents may support the learning.  If written interim reports are sent, please sign them and have your child return them to the teacher.  The first formal report card will be sent home on Thursday, November 19th.  As well, parents may wish to schedule a Parent/Teacher Meeting on November 25th or 26th.  Please contact the school if you wish to book an appointment or if you have any questions.

WEDAY Meeting

Notice to all the parents of the students who were chosen to attend WEDAY; there will be a meeting at 3:00pm on Friday in the Bert Bowes library to go over logistics and fees. We hope that you can attend! Please come with questions.

Musical Theater

The Bert Bowes Musical Theatre group is looking forward to another exciting year. This year we will be performing  “The Phantom Tollbooth Jr.” at the North Peace Cultural Centre on February 25 and 26.The Phantom Tollbooth Jr. is a fantastical show about a young boy who is bored of everything. “Even surrounded by dozens of toys, Milo is bored. Nothing interests him at all. The Phantom Tollbooth comes to the rescue! Transported to the Land of Wisdom Milo is thrust into adventure when told princesses Rhyme and Reason need rescuing, so as to bring peace between two kings. They are divided over which is more important: words or numbers. Knee-deep in danger, language, and math along the way, Milo learns everything has a purpose. Upon his return home, he realizes there is never a reason to be bored in a world full of so many things to discover.” (MTI website)

We are pleased to welcome Ivan Coyote to our district. In addition to a presentation at NPSS during the day, Ivan will also be giving a presentation for those middle school students and parents that would like to attend on Thursday, Oct. 8th at 7:30pm at the School Board office.

Ivan uses the transformative power of storytelling to explore coming-of-age, LGBTQ, gender equity and bullying issues while demonstrating that a good story can help inspire us to reinvent the present and create a better future. Please be advised that the presentation will involve mature subject matter.
