I can’t thank you enough for all your support at home as we continue to navigate learning through this Pandemic. Like everyone else we are looking forward to having all this behind us and returning to times without masks and attending school with all our peers.
In the meantime, I continue to ask for your support to ensure learning is a priority. It is very important that students attend face-to-face on their in-school days and they follow the expectations for their off- campus days. We want our students to strive for the best they can be attaining the credits they are enrolled in or reaching a proficient level in their studies.
Please reach out to us at any time for additional support or any needed resources. Striving to have our students succeed is our goal.

We continue to recognize and thank students and families as they navigate the Blended Learning model we are currently using - A-K & L-Z, each group alternating every second day.
Please take a look at the February calandar to the left to see the days that your child attends school face-to-face.
THE P.O.P. PROGRAM
What is the Mental Health Capacity Building Initiative or the POP Program?
The Mental Health Capacity Building Initiative is a program modeled after Alberta’s very successful Mental Health Program that has been in place for 13+ years. The intent of the program is to build capacity within the students, staff, parents and community in the area of mental health.
This program does not provide counselling but aids in streamlining the access to services for those who require them.
The staff of the Mental Health Capacity Building Initiative provide support in classrooms that tie to curriculum outcomes.
Who are the staff?
Nikki Fidelak is the Mental Health Capacity Building Promoter at NBCHS. She provides support to students and to the staff of the school and brings a mental health lens to all her work.
Erin Woytiuk is the Mental Health Capacity Building Promoter at NBCHS and JPII. She oversees the program to ensure mandate of the program is being followed. She also assists the promoters when needed.
The P.O.P. Room is next to the Gateway Room. Stop by and say Hi!
STUDENT LED CONFERENCES DURING COVID-19
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to host Student Led Conferences in the school. However, we are committed to ensuring communication regarding NBCHS students. Students have been asked to have a conversation with parents or caregivers regarding their progress in each class using a conversation guide provided by each of their teachers.
During the week of Feb. 1-5th each student should be having a conversation with their parent/guardian using this conversation guide.
Teachers will make themselves available during the week of Feb. 8-12 for phone calls or video conferences if requested. Information regarding their availability will be included with the student conversation sheet. Arrangements for follow up conversations will be made directly with teachers through email.
The B.E.A.T.S. ENCOUNTER
The Breakfast & Lunch Program
NBCHS has a Breakfast & Lunch Program for $10/mth (ask about our school sponsored spots). During COVID, we have had to change the way the program works. Currently, we offer Grab-and-Go Breakfast Bags. These contain a fruit, a muffin & a granola bar. Breakfast bags can be picked up at the Canteen. Lunch is in the cafeteria. Students go through the sandwich line and can ask for a grilled cheese sandwich or a sandwich with their choice of meat and toppings. Along with the sandwich, students recieve a juice box and a piece of fruit. If interested in more info, please talk to one of our School Liaisons at 306-445-6101.
