Parents and guardians of JK and SK students, a reminder that the Health Unit will be at DGH on Monday October 23 to provide a fluoride rinse. Thank you to our local Health Unit for providing this important service!
Go, Huskies, Go!
The Senior Girls Soccer team, coached by Ms. Elliot and Ms. Prins, is off to their County tournament. Wins are great – but we value effort and sportsmanship even more!
Go, Huskies, Go.
DGH community, we are asking you to wear PURPLE on “Dress Purple Day” on Tuesday, October 24th. What is Dress Purple Day? Click on the link below to check out the official webpage.
Wearing PURPLE shows your recognition and awareness of children’s rights to safety and well-being. It is all about recognizing that it truly takes a village to raise our children.
DGH students and staff – we usually an OUTSTANDING job supporting our dress up days! Break out the PURPLE, please!
DGH community, do not forget that our next Parent Council Meeting takes place tomorrow night – Wednesday, October 18th. We meet at 6:00 pm in our school library. As mentioned in an earlier post, parents are still welcome to join the council!
Topics Under Discussion
• school happenings
• fundraising (both raising money and what to spend the money on)
• an upcoming Paint Night
• our school’s School Improvement Plan
• upcoming events like Breakfast with Santa
DGH’s Parent Council is excited to announce a great opportunity for parents to meet and mix! Our Parent Council has organized a Paint Night on Tuesday, November 7th! While this is meant mostly as a parent evening, Intermediate students are welcome as long as they are accompanied by a parent.
Local artist, Joanne Phendler, will be running the evening. Over the course of the evening participants will create their own piece of art. The cost is $45, with $15 of that going back to the Parent Council.
A flyer containing all of the important information went home last Friday. The same flyer is on the front of this post and is provided below. Should you require additional information, please call the school at 705-786-1915. The Parent Council is looking forward to the evening and hope and you can join them!
How do we know that Fall is officially here? Because the annual Seagull Birdnado happened last Thursday, October 12th above DGH! It looked like a couple of hundred Seagulls were flocking above the school. More than a few students were running around, trying to avoid having birds above them (without a great deal of success, I might add!).
As always, the flock of Seagulls makes for a great photo op! You can check out a few additional photos of the Birdnado below.
Go, Huskies, Go!
Our Junior Mixed Soccer team heads off today to compete at the County tournament being held at Rolling Hills! Make us proud! Thank you, Ms. Arscott, for coaching!
Go, Huskies, Go!
Husky pride happens again tomorrow, Wednesday, October 18th, as our Senior Girls Soccer team competes at their County tournament. The ladies are headed off to Dunsford – thank you Dunsford for hosting. Ms. Elliot and Ms. Prins are coaching the team this year and they definitely think the girls are ready! As always, your commitment to the team through practices is appreciated and we know you will be wonderful representatives for our school.
DGH community, our next Parent Council Meeting is Wednesday, October 18 at 6:00 pm in our library. It isn’t too late to join our Council! If you are interested, please join us next Wednesday evening.
Kristin Watt and Grant Boudreault (the two people in the photo attached to this post) are our Co-Chairs. They are volunteering at a previous Breakfast With Santa – one of the DGH’s amazing traditions! As you can tell from the photo, they are having lots of fun AND are our contributing to our school community.

We wish good luck to our Junior Mixed Soccer team which competes next Monday, October 16th. Coached by Ms. Arscott, the team has had many practices and is ready to compete. We are hoping to do well, given the talent on the team; however, we put more value on the efforts and sportsmanship demonstrated by our players! Our tournament is taking place at Rolling Hills (thank you to Rolling Hills for hosting).
Make us proud, Huskies!
You will have to zoom in on the photos below to see the Junior practising last week, but the fog rising above the field made for a cool photo!
