New Norway School

November 2022

Creating a Culture of Excellence!!

From the Admin Desk

Halloween is over and November has arrived!

New Norway School will be hosting its annual awards ceremonies for secondary students on December 1st, recognizing the accomplishments of students during the 2021/2022 school year.

Our Remembrance Day ceremony this year took place on Tuesday November 8th staring at 10:30 am in the gym.

Just a reminder that Report cards will be distributed on Friday November 18th for grades 1-12.

Winter weather has arrived and as such I would like to remind everyone that it is important for students to dress appropriately for the conditions. Please ensure that your child comes to school with their winter coats, toques, gloves/mittens and winter footwear when needed for the weather conditions.

The protocol for bus transportation during inclement weather will remain the same as last year. On days of inclement weather, bus drivers will make a decision about whether or not it is safe to operate their bus on their route for that day. In the event that one or more buses does not operate, this information will be passed along to the Battle River School Division transportation department and an automated phone fan-out will be initiated for affected routes. In addition information will be updated on the Battle River School Division website with respect to bus operation.

“Take our kids to work” day took place on Wednesday November 2nd and involved grade 9 students who spent the day with their parents at work. We hope you enjoyed your day!

Just a reminder that there will be no school for students from the 9th to 15th of November. School resumes on Wednesday, November 16th.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club is looking for donations to help us through the year. Donations could include things like fruit cups, granola bars, cereal and yogurt tubes. Bread items and fresh fruit would also be good. Any questions please email
