Pre-exam De-stressing Activities

Good morning!

Students in Grades 7-11, please see pre-exam activities that will be open for you to sign up for, through Veracross, starting next week.  Based on the survey results last week, we have tailored both the number and types of activities to meet your needs.

Remember to thank your De-stressing Activity Leaders!

Blood Type

Good morning,

In Veracross we have now added a field to collect NIS faculty and staff blood type.   This information will be accessible by a limited number of NIS colleagues (School Nurse, IT and SLT).  Unfortunately, this information cannot be entered through the Veracross Portal, so if you would like to have your blood type entered into Veracross, please send Samantha an email indicating your blood type by Thursday, November 30.

Sharing this information is completely voluntary.

ACAMIS Touch Rugby – Cheering on our Lions!

Good morning,

As you know, we are hosting ACAMIS Touch Rugby from this Friday morning through to Saturday afternoon.  See schedule attached.

Our NIS Lions would love to be cheered on by our students and community.  MS and US Teachers, if you would like to take your class out on Friday, please send me (Arden) a quick note to let me know what time and which grade.  This is to avoid having the students in any given grade inadvertently out of class for multiple periods.
