This month, the grade 4 students at NCS are taking part in something Called the "Secret Acts of Kindness!" Each grade 4 student will have a chance to do 3 acts of kindness for another student in their homeroom class. The goal is to find ways to do kind acts for others without spending any money! Each student will randomly draw out a name, and then have to complete 3 acts of kindness (in secret)! Students can work on these acts of kindness at home or at school (some flex time will be given and student's can come to Ms. Clark's room on Monday or Wednesdays at lunch. The last day before winter break, students will have to guess who their secret friend was!
A note will have gone home with your child by the end of the week outlining this with a little bit more detail regarding the secret acts of kindness project! It's a great way to show Nose Creek spirit and community in the classroom!
Below you will find a list of ideas that students might want to complete for their secret friend. There are a lot of great resources/tutorials on the internet that are options as well!
-portraits of secret friend
-make a joke book
-make an activity book
-something from recycling (made into something else)
-make a game for them (board game, etc)
-make a scavenger hunt
-make a decoration for locker/room
-make a bookmark for a buddy
-make a sun catcher
-make a musical instrument
-make a monster mask
-make a fidget spinner
Teachers will have paper, pencil crayons, glue, markers, etc. If there is something special that you want to make, you will need to either make it at home or bring the materials you need!
Thanks for your continued support,
The Grade 4 team.
We're all very excited about our upcoming Ski/Snowboard Field Trip on Tuesday, December 5th 2017. We just wanted to remind all parents/guardians about a few important details (as per the original note sent home).
-Students need to be at the Nose Creek Main Gym at 8:00am on their Ski Day (December 5th)! Students will be taking Southland buses at 8:30am to WinSport Ski Center (88 Canada Olympic Road SW) and returning to Nose Creek School at 3:15pm. We will have teachers attending the trip to supervise our student population on and off the hill.
Please make sure to bring a lunch, a water bottle and dress appropriately for the weather. A reminder to parents and guardians, students are only able to bring their own helmet and goggles if they have them, although COP will be providing all necessary ski and snowboard equipment and helmets.
We're looking forward to a great day on the hill with many new experiences!

As students and families transition into Nose Creek School we understand there are questions regarding many topics. Here is a quick FAQ sheet that can begin to provide more information about the Grade four school year.
