Cougar Coupon Awards
The Nicomekl school motto is: Be Safe, Be Fair and Be Kind.
Students are rewarded for acting in SAFE, FAIR and KIND ways around the school. When students are caught demonstrating our school motto, they receive a Cougast Coupon. Coupons go into a draw at the end of the month for pirses from our price cabinet.
We are proud to announce that McDonald’s Restaurants will once again be sponsoring the Class Act Award for this year. Students are awarded a Class Act by demonstrating outstanding academic leadership as well as strong citizenship within the school. Once a month, a Grade 5 student is chosen to receive this award. It is given at our month end assembly.
The program is a joint initiative under ActNow BC with partners from the Ministries of Education, Health and Agriculture and Land, providing fresh BC fruit and vegetable snacks to elementary school children. The program has been expanded to include 164 schools across British Columbia. Children receive fresh fruit or vegetables every two weeks, twice a week. Currently the snacks include baby ground carrots, greenhouse grown mini-cucumbers and tomatoes, kiwifruit, apples, pears and plums.

The Volunteer Program
Every morning from 8:00 until 8:35 a team of volunteers from The United Church of Canada serve bagels, juice and fruit in our multi-purpose room for any students who would like to have breakfast at school.
Please note the times…breakfast will not be served after 8:35 am as our first bell is at 8:46 am.
We would like students to eat their breakfast in the multi-purpose room and not take food to their classrooms. Students must enter and exit through the exterior doors at the multi-purpose room.
1974.. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley developed the Big Brother program, providing emotional support to selected boys and in 1979, were given chapter status by Big Brothers of Canada.
1992.. Because of community need, they expanded to begin offering their service to girls.
1996.. The organization, in order to meet the growing need for service to children, youth and families in the community, began offering the “In-School Mentoring” program through a partnership with the Langley School District.
Every week volunteers spend time reading, drawing and playing with children they have been paired up with.
The program gives the children a chance to bond with the volunteer mentors.
Commit to the Langley area young people that we will be leaders in providing them with the highest quality, volunteer based mentoring programs, to help them reach their full potential.
