Jersey Day – Friday, February 23

Have you picked out your favourite jersey or team’s shirt – because this Friday, February 23rd is Jersey Day!


One of the great things about this Spirit Day is the wide variety of jerseys and shirts we will see.  From teams that students play on to clubs that students belong to or favourite professional sports teams – we will see a little bit of everything on Friday.  My personal favourites are always the jerseys of clubs that students belong to.  It is incredible how different organizations are in our local community!


Wear those jerseys with pride, Huskies!

Our Junior and Intermediate students are beginning their Jimmy Chapman sessions this Wednesday, February 21st.  They are definitely excited about this!  Each of our Junior and Intermediate classes will have 3 sessions with Jimmy (February 21st, 28th and March 21st).  We are asking each student pay $3 towards the cost of Jimmy’s sessions (with the Parent Council generously covering the other half of the cost).  Please wear clothing that will be comfortable when doing breakdancing moves!  It is going to be a ton of fun!

DGH community, do not forget that next Tuesday, February 27th is the Parent Council’s “Design Your Own Sign Night”!  While the Parent Council will make some money from the night ($15 from each participant’s fee goes to the Parent Council), the main purpose of the night is to have the chance for community members to get together for a relaxing and fun evening.


If you wish to participate in the evening, your payment and sign selection must be in tomorrow (Tuesday, February 20th).  The person running the evening needs the time in order to obtain the templates for the signs chosen.


All of the relevant information can be found in an earlier post which can be read by clicking here.


Thank you to Ms. Horton and the Parent Council for organizing this evening!

Spirit Day: Jersey Day – Friday, February 23!

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Another favourite Spirit Day of the year is coming up soon: Jersey Day!  There are few things in life that will get students more excited and animated than talking about and wearing their favourite team’s jersey!


There are several students in the school who enjoy nothing more than wearing their team’s jersey just to bother me!  Jayden Lyver enjoys nothing more than finding me when she is wearing her Green Bay Packers jersey and Cam Ouellette cannot wait to find me in the hallway when he is wearing his beloved Montreal Canadiens jersey.


Of course, you do not have to wear a sports team jersey!  Many of our students belong to clubs or dirt bike and have jerseys from this.


Do not have a jersey?  Just wear a shirt with your favourite team’s logo or name!


Keep your spirit going, Huskies!
