Thank you

We would also like to thank the Neilburg Recreation Board and the Student Representative Council for their generous financial support of our provincial track and field athletes.  Your donation was greatly appreciated.

Back to School Solutions is a company that provides a purchasing service for your Fall school supplies.  Each student has been sent a form home with the instructions and the list of school supplies needed for next school year on the back.  You are not in any way obligated to purchase your supplies through this company, but the parents who have in the past have been very pleased with the quality of the products and the ease of getting their supplies.  Instructions are on the form for ordering through the school or online.  Orders are delivered to the school before school starts for parent pickup and they contain name labels for all items.

If you are ordering through the school your order must be in by June 21st.  If ordering online you can order until August 4th.




NCS has launched a new online store for spirit wear. We’ve partnered with EntripyShops to offer T-Shirts, sweat pants, shorts, hoodies, jackets, toques, bags and more. You can find our new store online at A portion of sales is returned to the school for school events. We have ordered samples of some items. Once they arrive, you will be able to see how our logos look on the products.

Coupon Code: Use the coupon code ENTRIPYSHOPS10 for 10% off your order.



We are once again asking parents to send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the school if you are unable to pick up your child’s report card on the morning of June 30th.
