This last weekend our Robotics Club, made up of students from grades 5-9, made the journey to Nose Creek's first competition, with over 50 entrants, we finished at 32, an awesome job! Not only were the students enthusiastic and committed in the months leading up to the event, the parents support was fantastic. Miss. Ng was truly impressed with the team and community. Great job o our Kodiaks and their support system!
This week we are thinking pink at Nose Creek. Bullying is a major issue in not only schools but society and we are raising awareness within our school and are gladly partnering with Calgary Hitmen by going to their "Be Brave" hockey game. With close to 1000 Kodiak's, parents, and staff members going, we are excited. While we get out in the community though,it is important to make sure that we reflect on why the Hitmen are hosting the event. We must all be active participants in our communities, and not just on Pink Shirt Day but every day. I would encourage everyone to not let others suffer alone. We are a sea of 1000 pink shirts descending on the Saddledome. That is 1000 bodies that can work together to make our Nose Creek community, our community of Coventry Hills, and every community that we interact with a safer and supported place.
While we participate in our fun themed days (I can't wait to wear my hat for $1 on Wednesday!), let's keep in site the purpose. Bullying stops here. Not with our neighbors but with us.
As we look to finish off the second month of 2018, we are extremely thankful to our parent council for funding a variety of physical literacy resources for our classrooms. These include under-table bikes, balance cushions, resistance bands, and more! As a staff we continue to feel fortunate and amazingly supported by our parents.
While report cards just went home, we are already looking to the 2018-2019 year for term planning. We have gathered data about programs that students are interested in and will be looking at schedules and making sure that there is something for everyone here at Nose Creek!
Speaking of snow, please ensure that students are dressed for the weather as the temperature will continue its up and down cycle for a while longer. Lower grade students will go out for recess when weather permits so having winter clothing is a necessity.
The Start of Term 2
This week sees the start of our second term of complementary courses. We are excited to offer a wide range of programs to satisfy a multitude of interests and our teachers and students are excited to see what the second half of the year brings.
With the first term drawing to a close, report cards will be coming home this Friday!
Cardboard Floats, Balls Bounce, Another Week Passes
This past week we sent two teams to the Cardboard Boat Races. With one team blazing across the pool and the other making it a few feet, the engineering challenge was a massive success and tons of fun. Great job to our team that showed outstanding Kodiak Spirit.
We also hosted the senior Kodiak Classic Basketball Tournament. Close games and competition ran rampant with our senior boys and girls team representing us extremely well.
