School Spirit

We are very lucky to already enjoy many opportunities for the grades to mingle, learn, and demonstrate leadership:

The New Horizons House Team system is a great way to further build school spirit and encourage community throughout the grades. 

The program promotes collaboration and cooperation within the house teams and it promotes healthy competition between the house teams. Students learn to solve problems together and persevere through challenges.

Earning Points

These are some of the ways students, teachers, and staff can earn house points:


Points for the entire school are tallied and publicized on our website in real-time. Points for each class are also recorded and available at the request of the teacher. Teachers may reward the leading house of their classroom at any time throughout the year.

The leading house at the end of the year is awarded the House Cup.

Have any ideas for a year-end celebration for the winning house? Come join the School Council’s monthly meetings to share your ideas!

Early Dismissal Spirit Days

Early Dismissal days are the easiest way to earn points for your house. Come to school dressed in your House Colours OR in Nighthawks gear to earn a point for your house. 

Don’t Know Your House Colour?

House Colours are assigned to students in Kindergarten in the fall. 

House lists are not publicized. Teachers hold lists of house colours for their classroom. If your student does not know to which house they belong, have them ask their teacher.
