The Force is Strong in These Ladies!

Always in touch with their force-like powers, Mrs. Starr and Ms. Taylor are modelling their Star Wars characters today for Halloween.  Mrs. Starr, as Princess Leia, and Mrs. Taylor, as Obi-Wan Kenobi, have made sure that the “light” side will rule the day at Dr. George Hall.

 

“Most impressive,” as Darth Vader would say.

Huskies, our first Spirit Day of the year was decent (School Colours – wearing green and blue) and our second was definitely better (Jersey Day).

 

Our next Spirit Days are coming up and we would love to see an even higher level of participation.  Everyone will have LOTS of advance notice to prepare!

 

November 14th is CHARACTER DAY.  Students and staff are encouraged to dress up as their favourite character.  Everyone should be able to have fun with this one!

 

November 28th is HAT and PJ’S DAY.  Students are staff will be able to wear hats to school that day (always a favourite) and also pj’s.

 

Remember – all clothing on Spirit Days has to fit into the school’s usual dress code!

Primary Soccer Team Success!

DGH Primary Soccer Team Makes It To The Semi-Finals!

Congratulations to the Dr. George Hall Primary Soccer Team which made it to the semi-finals of the County Tournament.  After success in the round-robin portion of the tournament, the Huskies made it into the semi-finals.  The Huskies fought a hard battle with Mariposa in the semi-finals, losing 1-0 in a lengthy shoot-out.  Ms. Evans, the coach, said that several of our shoots almost went in (barely missing corners).  Ms. Evans also praised the team for their effort and sportsmanship throughout the day – they played 3 games back-to-back with barely only a few minutes for a break in between them!  Special mention goes out to the Huskies’ goalies (Emma F and Andy F) who helped kept the Huskies in every game!

 

Ms. Evans could not be more proud of your effort!
