A Message from Parent Council for Parents

From our School Council and Parent Advisory Association 

1. Last year some of the fundraising money went towards purchasing Gatorade
and Granola Bars that were given to students who were on sports teams, band
and drama for one of their events with the purpose to build morale and provide
an extra snack to get through their event. These were much appreciated by

The school council is just asking for donations of Gatorade (we’ve now collected enough granola bars) to continue running this program. Please drop off at the office if you’re able to contribute to this 

There have been so many generous donations, Thank you so much! 

2. Thank you to the parent volunteers who are contributing to a potluck meal for teachers at Parent Teacher interviews on October 18th! Food is a wonderful way of showing appreciation to the staff of NSCHS and is always well received. 

If you would like to contribute to future staff meals, please contact one of the School Council executive members.

School Council

Our NSCHS (Parent) Council provides an opportunity for parents, students, teachers and community members to provide input, in an advisory capacity, to the administration of our school.  Our School Council members meet on a monthly basis to discuss and collaborate on enhancing student learning and fostering the well-being and efficacy of our teaching and learning community.

All members of our school community are encouraged to attend and participate.

A school council is mandatory for all schools in Alberta.

Parent Association

Our NSCHS Parent Advisory Association is our fund-raising volunteer parent organization that retains an Alberta Gaming License.  Our Parent Association continues to fund many valuable aspects of our school’s learning community and activities.
