New Heights is Growing!

New Heights is growing again for the 2021-2022 school year. The Mount Norquay classroom will be opening up in September, completing our trio of classrooms in the New Heights High School program with Castle Mountain and Mount Columbia.

Mount Norquay will be located in the high school wing of New Heights, down the hallway next to Castle Mountain.
Ms Laura Jay & Ms Dulaine Lough
Our Administrative Assistant, Laura Jay, will be off on maternity leave as of the end of this school year. We will miss her, but are excited for her to grow her family.
Congrats Laura!
Dulaine Lough will be joining us for Laura’s maternity leave, and will be the voice you hear on the New Heights side of the phone on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays during the 2021-2022 school year. Alison Black will still be the voice on Mondays and Tuesdays. Dulaine is joining us on certain days through June to work with Laura in the office.

Welcome Dulaine!
Way to Go!
Each month at New Heights there is a Way to Go! draw. To be entered, students have to be “caught” going above and beyond for others.
 
Some examples of this might be: helping out another student to solve a problem, holding the door for others on the way outside, or letting someone else have a turn on a favorite game.
 
Teachers fill out a ticket for the students to drop off in the jar in the office, and each month, Mr Williams and Mrs Brocanier pull a ticket from the jar, most likely during the assembly. At the end of the year, all the tickets are put back in the jar for a final mega-draw at the end of June.
The winner of the Way to Go! draw in May was Kate from Cascade Mountain!
