DGH’s Parent Council and Upcoming Meeting on Wednesday

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Our next Parent Council Meeting is on Wednesday, November 18 at 6:00 p.m..  The meeting will be held in the school library.


The DGH Parent Council held its first meeting on Wednesday, October 28th. The purpose of the meeting was to elect a Chair and decide some initial initiatives for the year. DGH will again have 2 Co-Chairs this year: Ms. Kristin Watt and Mr. Grant Boudreault. Thank you for volunteering again! At this point, the positions of Treasurer and Secretary are unfilled; however, these positions will be filled at our next meeting on November 18th.

The council decided to postpone the Little Caesars Pizza Fundraiser, due to the unusual start to this year, until after the Christmas Holidays. This will allow the grade 6s, 7s and 8s to sell Elmira Chicken (organized by Ms. Graham) as a fundraiser to help cover some of the cost of their year-end trips which tend to be more expensive.

Instead, the first Parent Council Fundraiser will be Poinsettias. Money raised from the Poinsettia fundraiser will go towards the purchase of a Hydration Station for the Primary side of the school. The Parent Council purchased a Hydration Station for the Junior/Intermediate at the end of last year and it has been extremely popular! So, we know a Primary Hydration Station will be popular! Information about the Poinsettia Fundraiser will be going home soon with students.

As well, the Parent Council is again organizing its ever popular Breakfast with Santa. Scheduled for Tuesday, December 15th in the 1st Block. Santa will hopefully make his visit and students will be enjoying a pancake breakfast after carolling.

Our next meeting is Wednesday, November 18th at 6:00 p.m. in the DGH library.
