Dear Parents and Guardians,
First, we would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm “hello” and an official “welcome” to Niverville High School. We are thrilled to be embarking on this journey with you and look forward to making this an amazing school for your kids.
Next, getting to the heart of the matter, we want to thank you for participating in the recent Niverville Thought Exchange. It is evident from the level of participation that we have a caring and supportive community of parents heading to NHS. Overall, the Thought Exchange conversation included 136 participants, who shared 104 thoughts and assigned 3, 340 stars, all of which will help guide and shape our planning. Upon review of the data, taking into account the values expressed and questions asked, three overarching themes emerged:
- developing strong positive relationships
- preparing students for a successful future
- establishing a place of safety and belonging for everyone
As we begin to establish a new school and a new identity, these will be important aspects for us to consider. The culture we create, the programs we develop, and the changes we implement, need to reflect these values to effectively support, develop, and inspire our students to their full potential.
We also understand that effective communication is something everyone appreciates and we will strive to do just that. Over the next few weeks and months, we invite you to visit this website for building updates and school-related news. Here we will provide information regarding the progress of the new school, post upcoming events, and be able to answer some of your questions in our recently added FAQ section.
I have officially started in my role as NHS principal and am actively working on preparations for the new school. Thank you, again, for your participation in Thought Exchange, as your input is valuable and essential to building a strong connection between home and school. I look forward to meeting and talking with you over the next few months as we prepare for opening day.
Kimberley Funk, Principal NHS
