ALL STUDENTS AND STAFF -
We will be conducting device checks next week starting on Monday with grade 8s and 9s and 10s-12s following that. Due to the number of students using devices not signed out to them or missing devices, we need to conduct an audit of all devices (not chargers). Please have your NGPS assigned device at school next week to be checked. Students unable to produce devices will be assessed the full cost of replacement.
Students will now be required to sign into PowerSchool with their NGPS Google Account - this applies to the web and mobile app versions. NGPS has moved away from windows to run powerschool and now it is accessed through Google accounts.
SENIOR HIGH- GRAD STUDENTS meeting in the library on February 26 at noon sharp to review school-based timelines, ticket info, and you will have an opportunity to ask questions.

Basketball Camps - (Grade 8 - 9) & (Grade 10 - 11)
We are gauging the interest in running an Onoway High School Basketball Camp(s) this spring. There will be two different camps: One for Grade 8 - 9 Girls and Boys, and one for the Grade 10 - 11 Girls and Boys. You don’t have to have been on the highschool teams this year to join.
The plan for the camp(s) is twice a week for 1.5 hours per day for 9 hours total. They would run in April and/or May depending on the camp. We will cover basketball skills such as shooting, defence, passing and rebounding. The camp will progress as skill levels dictate. We will include 15 minutes of games at each session and wrap the entire camp up the last day with skill games and a tournament. All skill levels are welcome!
If you are interested, please plan on attending a meeting with the coaches and Miss Deacon on Friday, February 16th at the lunch bell (11:50am) in the gym. We will provide further information at the meeting and answer any questions you may have then.
Any senior high grade 10-12 BOYS interested in playing Handball this year, there is a mandatory meeting in the gym at noon (12pm sharp) this THURSDAY February 15th to let Mr Muir know that you want to play. Please make sure you attend, so that we can decide if there will be enough players to field a team. Any questions ask or email Miss Deacon.
