Mr. Greaves' leadership group will be offering Ping Pong on the stage at lunch on Monday's and Friday's. They will also be offering dodgeball on the outside basketball court (weather permitting) on Monday's and Friday's as well.
In front of a packed house, the grade 6/7 boys and girls rugby team dominated arched rivals SMU and Royal Oak racking up two more wins. Could all players that did not play in the game yesterday (you remember the scale) see Mr. Greaves immediately in room106 before going to your presentation. The boys next practice is Thursday after school. Bring Your MOUTH GUARDS!!
If there are any students who missed the information meeting yesterday at lunch time but are interested in participating in Track and Field this year, it's not too late! Please come and see Ms. Wheatley, Ms. Carruthers, or Ms. Jones to get the necessary information.
Remember...practice times are Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Parklands from 3:20-4:15. Get changed here at NSMS and then walk up to the high school. If you are interested in high jump, practices will be here at NSMS at 8:15 am on Wednesday mornings. Remember, the coaches do not expect you to make all of the practice sessions but you should try to make at least one per week.
Yesterday's School Bike League race was a fantastic success. Our 5 NSMS riders performed extremely well, with Kael taking first place for Middle School Boys, Tharen in the same class, and Tori claiming 3rd in the Girls' division in her first ever Super-D race! Next up: the Cross-Country Short Loop on Tuesday. New riders are welcome - registration is still open. You don't need to attend every ride, and there are lots of types of races. Later in the year: the Veledrome & Road Race are scheduled.
Water fact of the day: Did you know that 6000 children die each day from unsafe drinking water? (www.worldvision.ca)
You can help YAC make a difference by donating coins from now until May1st. Winning class gets prizes and we all get to feel great about helping people with one of life's basic necessities: access to clean drinking water. Thanks, everyone, for being generous.
