Our Parent Advisory Committee is busy preparing for our annual Nicholson Spring Fling on Friday, May 4 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.

There will be a BBQ, games, face painting, raffles and more!  Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the evening!

This week, a modified version of report cards has been sent home.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress or would just like to check in with teachers, don’t hesitate to call the school and set up a time to meet.

We have been enjoying some special presentations and performances lately.

The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary tour came through Golden and Nicholson.  Students attended a slide show presentation that explained the history of Rick’s Man in Motion tour and his ongoing message that we all can make a difference.

Nicholson School had a student, Jake Gudjonson, a parent, Karen Gudjonson, and a staff member, Donna Williams, participate as medal bearers in the relay.

The students enjoyed watching the Lady Grey performance of “No Strings Attached” last week and today hosted a visiting Vancouver school, doing some drama and music for us on their way through Golden.

On Friday this week, we are looking forward to the Parks Canada show “Wild Sings” coming to our school from Banff.  Also, our own local GSS band will perform for the Nicholson students in a couple of weeks.

With the spring weather, bikes are out and children are playing outside, walking home from school etc.  Please use caution on our Nicholson roads to ensure the safety of all.

As we head into our last couple of months of this school year, we have many special events planned.

Watch for school newsletters and notices coming home in backpacks to keep updated on the latest happenings!
