ELEMENTARY COUPON BOOK SALES                                                                  

The K-5 students are once again selling the coupon books.  There are several local businesses with coupons again this year, which makes it a great way to support our community.  The cost of a coupon books is $25 and the school makes $10 for each book sold.  The money raised goes towards field trips, special events and treats for the K-5 students.

There are daily draws and a huge prize draw at the sales end.  The coupon books will be for sale starting Tuesday, Sept. 19th.  Each student will be given one coupon book to take home and sell.  If your family does NOT wish to sell or buy a coupon book, please contact the school.  Also, extra books are available at the school if you want to sell more than one.  Please send a note with your child or call the school to get more books sent home. 

If you do not have a student selling books and want to buy one, please contact a K-5 student or call the school at 306-823-4313.  If you are a NCS parent you can also purchase coupon books online at SchoolCash.

WELLNESS IN MANITOU (WIM’s Gym)                                                                  

  The WIM board has made a few changes to their rules.                                                                

  In order to be consistent with what rules are in other gyms – gym users must be 16 years of age and accompanied by a parent until they are 18 years of age at which time they may use the gym on their own.                                                                

Only members 18 years of age and older will be given the combination to the gym.                                                            

The board also decided to decrease the gym fees:                                                 

  New fees are:  Per person:  $100 for 6 months or $150 per year                                      

Couples ( married or common law living in same residence) $250 per year                     

  Seniors:  65 years and older $100 per year                                                                           

Drop in fees (for out of town users) - $5 ( must be accompanied by a gym member)
