2017/2018 YEARBOOKS                                                                                      

Karrie Blackbeard is working on completing the 2017-18 yearbook.  She is still looking for photos as the file containing all the yearbook photos was lost due to computer issues.  Instead of asking businesses to advertise in the yearbook we are looking for page sponsors.  You, your business or your family could sponsor a page for $25.  Cheques should be made to Neilburg Composite School.  Please call the school or send your message for sponsoring a page.  This will help keep the cost of the yearbook affordable for everyone.

Hat Day is every Friday                                                                                                           

All hat day profits go to our foster child Hao Hao in China. The annual fee is $504. Two dollars is the fee to wear a hat on Friday. There are also $20 Hat day punch cards that are available on School cash on-line as well from the S.R.C. member who is collect the Friday hat funds. Any extra funds from Hat Day will be put to our other charitable activities for the year.
