Dear <<First Name>>,

Quinzee Building

The Gr. 8-9 Outdoor Education option took advantage of our most recent dump of snow and the relatively mild temperatures to build Quinzees right in our own backyard. Josh K-B., Joel E., and Brandon F. have a great start on their pile of snow.

We wrapped up midterm exams for our 5/6 to 7 classes this week. We are very proud of the boys for the effort they put forth. For us, the process is much more important than the exam result. We have been reflecting on how the boys prepared, if they used strategies and how they handled any anxiety for the majority of this week. High-stakes exams continue to be a reality and we want our boys to be prepared and be aware of what works for them. We hope you will have some discussion at home as we will repeat this process again in June and our grade 6 students will be writing Provincial Achievement Tests (PATs).

A midterm mark statement will be coming home with the students on Tuesday.

Our Outdoor Education classes continue to take advantage of the weather by finding ways to learn and have fun outside. Last Friday our K - 4/5 classes had a fun morning at Prince's Island Park.

We will be encouraging our students to dress up in red and pink for Valentine's day, so we are hoping you can assist them.

It's hard to believe that we have reached the midpoint of the school year and we are excited for what is to come in the final half.

Student Showcase

This past Friday, Brendan O. (Gr. 7) had the opportunity to join the Okotoks Oilers, Alberta Junior A Hockey, radio team for some experiential learning in broadcasting on The Eagle 100.9! The Okotoks Oilers faced off against the Bonnyville Pontiacs.

In the one picture above, you will see Keegan Bartram (Play-by-Play announcer), Brendan, and Mark Frank (Colour Commentary).  

Brendan was invited by Head Coach and General Manager Tyler Deis to participate in this experience and, while he was nervous to begin with, Brendan grabbed the reins and was given the chance to add some colour commentary on the live radio broadcast! - start listening at the 2:15 mark for Brendan’s colour commentary).

Love Your Library! 

We are excited that libraries are coming to North Point Schools at both the Currie and Richmond campuses soon. Your generous book-drive donations are a fantastic start, but we need funding for more book purchases. This will be managed through SignUp Genius, an online fundraising platform. All donations are eligible for a tax receipt and every cent donated will be spent on books for our wonderful students. Thank you for your support!

Gr. 7 hosted and won their match on Tuesday vs Rundle Academy.  It was exciting to see the high level of fitness and the Relentless effort shown by these boys. There was an astonishing highlight reel play at the end of the first half as Max inbounded the ball to Ellis with only a couple of seconds left on the clock, Ellis received, turned and launched the basketball from half court for a buzzer beater that was nothing but net. In a show of good sportsmanship all around, both benches and all of the fans cheered and were on their feet, amazed by this rare, yet brilliant play!

The Gr. 8 and 9 teams continue their season with Thursday games and will be on the court at the time of this publication.

In High School, our basketball team has a string of games coming up, with a match on Wednesday, Feb. 8th at Foothills Academy, a home game at Hounsfield Heights on Monday Feb 13th, and a tournament at the and of February at Calgary Academy.


Our High School curling teams continue to battle it out on the ice, throwing stones at houses and trying to freeze out their opponents. Our Men's team played out to a win this past Wednesday and our Open team came close (again losing by 1).  They will be playing (tonight) at the time of this publication and Wednesday of next week before the playoff draw begins!  It is great to see the level of improvement.  A huge shout out to Cohen and his teammates for being  Resourceful and Responsible in accelerating the team growth by taking extra time to find and book practice ice on their weekends!
