On our Day of PINK, we focused on being kind. We read a Kindness Pledge which included “I will find my kind today and every day. I will use my SUPER POWER of KINDNESS to look for others who are sad or lonely and give my kindness to them.” We have many opportunities to express our kindness to others! Go to it NES!

At that time, every class practices being quiet in a corner of the room, away from the door. After a few minutes, we begin to account for all students and adults. Once everyone is accounted for, we announce that the lock down is over. We… Read More

Grade 4s and 3K are IN the new addition! A big thanks to all involved to make the classrooms ready for the students. As well, students are back into the music room and the library. You’ll see the new sod is fenced off and it will remain so until late spring or early fall. We want the roots to be established before using the area. We’re excited and very pleased!

Carol Ann Tomlinson, an educator, writes that The Little Prince is her favorite book. I haven’t read it, but it’s about a boy (Little Prince) who is trying to find his way in a confusing world. He comes upon a fox and asks him to play with him. However, the fox says he can’t because he isn’t tamed and asks the Little Prince to tame him. The fox explained the process—that he would look at the boy out of the… Read More
