A group of students from Ms. McLeod’s Environment and Resource Management class is organizing a second-hand clothing and accessory sale, running from the end of November to the beginning of December. We plan on using the money raised from this campaign to purchase a water bottle refill fountain for the school to use.
Clothing, bags, shoes and accessories will be collected until December 6th. The sale will run from December 9th to the 13th. Donations can be dropped off in the foyer of the school from 11:00 am to 11:40 am. The sale will run during the same time.
This is a great opportunity to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
The goal of the Advanced Placement (AP) Program is to provide students with the opportunity to enhance their learning beyond the secondary school curriculum and enable advanced standing when applying to post-secondary institutions.
Students who have in-depth knowledge of particular subject areas may write AP examinations. The exams are administered by schools each May and are returned to the College Board for marking on a 5 point scale. Scores are made available to students in July. Students must achieve a score of 4 or 5 to be considered for advanced placement in post-secondary programs that recognize the AP designation.

NPSS's Global Action team sponsored a food drive during Hallowe'en. Students were challenged to collect cans instead of candy to help fill the shelves at the Angus Food Bank.
The school had set a goal of 1500 items, and during delivery to the food bank on Friday November 1st, the final tally was over 3000 items.
One student described his experience on Hallowe'en night by sharing "people are so generous here. At first, they looked at me and said I was a little big to be trick or treating, but when I told them who I was and what I was collecting for, they didn't think twice."
The Global Action team thanks all students, staff, and community members for their generosity.
