Welcome Back to a New Year of Learning!

As we prepare for another exciting school year, I extend a warm welcome to our parents, guardians, and students. We are looking forward to seeing our students fill our hallways soon. Mr. Searle and Mrs. Arial are honored to be back as your administration team at New Norway School for the 2023-2024 school year.

Our school's motto of "Creating a Culture of Excellence" underscores our staff's commitment to fostering an environment where every student can thrive academically, personally, and socially. Here at New Norway School we're not only dedicated to imparting knowledge but also to nurturing essential life skills that will serve our students well beyond their time within these walls.

Collaboration between home and school is key. Join us in embracing open communication and active participation with your child’s teacher, ensuring each child's journey is a success story.

Let's dive into this new academic year with enthusiasm and partnership, creating moments of growth and achievement together.

Thank you for entrusting us with your children's education. Here's to a fantastic year ahead!

Demographic Confirmation

Dear Parents:

Please take a moment and log into PowerSchool and complete your child’s BRSD Demographic Confirmation Form for the year 2023-2024.

Alberta Education requires that we obtain a detailed update of student demographics on an annual basis. Funding they provide for your child’s education is conditional to us receiving these updates and making them part of the student’s record.

You can perform the following steps to access, review and submit the form:

1) Log into PowerSchool at

2) For each of your students, complete any forms which have been assigned to them.

We would like to thank you in advance for completing these forms.

BRSD continues to use PowerSchool for live up to date access to your child's grades, class schedules and attendance.

You will want to ensure that you are familiar with checking PowerSchool

throughout the year. Students in JR/SR high will also have a PowerSchool account to

access information. Information is available about how to log on to a private

account and access real-time information. The system includes a student and

parent portal, enabling students and parents to see similar information such

as attendance, grades, assignments and teachers’ comments. Students and parents will be able to log on anywhere there is internet access such as home, work or school.

To get an account, or reset a forgotten password, please contact Gwen Brown or call the school office.
