Please join us to wear orange tomorrow to celebrate the Orange Shirt Day. This is to recognize the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and wellbeing and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.
We are only a few days away from the PAC Agm on Tuesday October 3 from 6:30-7:30pm.
Please find attached a copy of the Agenda : PAC AGM AGENDA 2017
and a Copy of the PAC Executive Nomination Form: NRP PAC Executive – 20172018 (2)
Also we will present the PAC Report: 2015_16 PAC Report
After putting forward for approval the budget items we will launch into a discussion about “Curriculum 101”. We are extremely fortunate to have two of the Alder Community teachers and Karen Noel-Bentley attending the meeting this time. They will be able to help us guide you through some of the important pieces you as a parent need to know. If you have any specific questions about the Curriculum you would like to make sure are addressed at the meeting, please email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are so fortunate to have so many new and amazing teachers starting at NRP this year. With this comes the challenge of some communities lacking important things. The grade 3 and 5 community in particular is in need.
If you have gently used Fiction and Non Fiction books that are appropriate for ages 8-11. (Sci-fi, mystery, action, books about countries, animals….) and are willing to donate them to the school, please drop them off outside the main office. We will set up a box for donations.
Game/Puzzle and Art Supply Drive:
For Grade 1 and 2 kids: We are also asking that if you have gently used puzzles (100 piece is ideal), Games (like Monopoly junior, Candyland, Scrabble Jr..), cards (Memory games).
Finally: art supplies like bits of cloth, felt, crayons, pencil crayons, paints, sm. cardboard boxes, egg cartons, toilet paper rolls…to please drop it off as well. Many communities around the school use these items for art projects
Orange Shirt Day: Friday NRP will be celebrating Orange Shirt Day. This is an opportunity for First Nations, governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope of children to come.

I am attaching the PAC Minutes from Tuesday`s meeting. I will put it on file under Documents as well.
I am also attaching a list of PAC Executive positions. We will be voting in the new group at our October 3rd AGM. Please consider putting your name forward for one of the positions! It is very important we have all positions filled. While it can be some work to volunteer in a positions it is also a lot of fun!
The following was posted today on the NRP App. It is extremely important that all parents understand and follow the new procedures. It has been taking up to 3 hours a day for Lily in the office to get through all the unreported late arrivals or absent children. This is way too long and it is preventing the school office from getting other work done. The goal of this program is to quickly identify any child that has not arrived to school so parents can be notified and, if something has indeed happened, the authorities can be called as quickly as possible.
Below is the App notice. I have attached a Chinese translated copy.
The Safe Arrival Program started this year throughout the district. The purpose of this program is to ensure the safe arrival of students at school on a daily basis. This is what we need parents to do when your child is going to be absent or late for any reason (holiday, dental appointment, sick, etc):
You have one of two ways to report an absence or late arrival to school:
- Phone the school at 604.713-5950 before 9:00am. Press 1 to Report an Absence.Include the following information and speak clearly: Child’s first and last name, division number or teacher, how long they will be away, or if late — when they will arrive.
- On the NRPS App, go to Absence and complete the form. Remember to press “submit”.
If your child arrives late, please remind him or her to report to the office to sign in.
If you don’t report the absence, you will receive a phone call from the school. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please find the PAC meeting Agenda for tomorrow`s meeting:
We hope you will be able to join us. There will be 4 Red Cross Certified Grade 8 babysitters attending so please feel free to bring your child!
If you have a topic you wish to add to the agenda, feel free to email us at email@example.com
We are also looking towards our AGM on October 3. This is when the new PAC Executives will be voted in. If you would like to volunteer your time, please feel free to sign up. Here is a list of the positions. If you are interested in a position that has a name already, do not let that stop you….add your name!
In particular we are in need of a parent for co-Treasurer, co-Chair, DPAC Rep and a Volunteer Coordinator
Thank you everyone!
