Dear <<First Name>>,

Passion Projects

On Monday and Tuesday, parents and extended family were invited to come learn what our students are passionate about. The hard work and creativity of all of our students was on display at both campuses over the two days. Passion Projects ranged from sports (including a climbing wall!) and video games (one Gr. 4 student built his own gaming computer) to live music (there was a live band at Richmond) and steak! Thank you to all the friends and family that came down to support our students in their passions.

Well we sure packed a lot into the final week before our Spring Break!

Last Friday the grade 7 boys had the opportunity to participate in a drama workshop in the gym. The boys were phenomenal and succeeded in producing two short plays. We hope this may encourage our older boys to take advantage of future opportunities in the Fine Arts.

Monday we went over to the Currie campus to peruse the Passion Projects they had worked on all school year. The students at Currie did a great job and were excellent role models for the boys here at the Richmond campus. Tuesday we reversed the roles and the Currie campus students came over to see what our students had to offer. A very cool two days of exploring individual passion projects while supporting each other's interests. Thanks again to all the parents that were able to take the time to participate in this important annual event.

We wrapped up Tuesday with a fun lunch and the Townhall ceremony for March.

Yesterday we celebrated an excellent basketball season with a fun afternoon at Visions Sports Centre. The boys who played league basketball this year were able to play some fun games against each other as well as the feature match against the staff, while the rest of their peers cheered them on. Our young men have a little bit more work to do as the staff team managed to win the game by a single point.

Today the grade 7 boys went over to see the land that we recently announced the purchase of, the K to 6 boys went for a walk to a neighbourhood park for some outdoor fun and the K - 6 students also had the opportunity to participate in Ukrainian Easter Egg Decorating (Pysanky).

Tomorrow all our students will be heading to Nakiska to enjoy a full day of skiing! What a great way to transition into our Spring Break.

We hope you all enjoy the break and have the opportunity to enjoy some time with your families. The staff at Richmond are proud to be a part of such a supportive community and on behalf of them all, I would like to say thank you one more time! We are excited for the final stretch of the school year that will begin when the students return on April 11.

Young Entrepreuner's Busines Fair

Save the Date: Coming Sunday, June 4th

The Young Entrepreneurs Business Fair is a real-life marketplace where North Point students exhibit and sell products or services to potential customers. The money generated from sales belongs to them.

Pay-in-a-Day a Smashing Hit!

The resulting performances of the one hour workshop with Aliza Sarian were very entertaining and the students learned so much about the process from set design to execution. The Resourcefulness in using what was at hand to design a set and create the lighting was amazing.

Student participation in the 5th Annual Financial Academy Meme Contest was excellent. Sixty-five memes were submitted by students in kindergarten to Grade 12. The five winners of a $20 prize are Lex B., Brendan O., Hauxley K., Cohen H. and Madison B. Congratulations go out to the winners and thanks to all the students who participated!

Les Redick Presents:

Managing your Child’s ADHD

Our own Les Redick will give a presentation on Tuesday April 25th @ 6:30 pm at the Richmond Campus. This session is open to anyone so please feel free to invite your friends and family.

Session Description:

Parents are led through a discussion of how ADHD presents itself from early elementary school through to adulthood. Parents are shown what ADHD looks like at home and how it may look different at school. Parents are given strategies on how to manage ADHD at home and how to support teachers in the classroom. As a parent of a severe ADHD child, I will speak to topics like: Time Blindness, Poor Social Skills, Emotional Outbursts, Homework Issues, Poor Problem Solving/Time Management, Drug Use and Medications.
