Due to the forecast extreme cold weather all School District 60 bus runs are cancelled Friday, January 12, 2018. Schools will remain open! We did lots of work today at the ELC, it is also a great time to catch up, and there are a lot of assignments on the go and due! 🙂
The 1st PAC meeting for this school year is going to be on Thursday, September 13th @7:00pm in the NPSS library. Please come in at the gym door entrance and remove outdoor footwear.
The NPSS PAC Executive looks forward to seeing you there.
How is it that time of year already! First day of school at the ELC is Tuesday, Sept 4th at 8:40 am. It’s a shorty tho! Classes end at 11:00am. The rest of the week is regular school hours – so 8:40am to 3:02pm. Students will be sent home an information package the first day, and no supplies are needed for the first week.
Please stop by the ELC tomorrow, May 31, between 10:30am and 12:30pm to help us celebrate our community focused project. Our students were asked “How can I make a difference in our community?” The exhibition will be set up like a trade show where visitors can walk through the school and interact with the different student groups, hearing from them how they tried to make a difference and what they learned in the process. We hope that you will have time tomorrow to come down and celebrate with our students their plan on how to make our community a better place 🙂
Please check out our invitation to our ELC Students Community Project Exibition!

WOW! Way to Go ELC students! The ELC sponsored 6 families for Christmas Hampers this year. The students worked so hard at raising money and gifts! They waxed their legs and offered to shave their eyebrows and head, held a chess tournament, made soup and sandwiches for the entire school, went to various business, collected bottles, held a basketball tournament, had bake sales and candy grams…Phew!…and in the end had gifts and food and over $1000 in gift cards for each family and raised approximately $10,000 dollars! It was indeed a community effort from the ELC and we are so proud of all our students. Merry Christmas and all the best in 2018!
