The school year DEFINITELY feels like it is coming to a close now! Our grade 8s visit to LCVI has been planned for June 8th. During the visit on June 8th, our grade 8s will learn about how the typical high school day runs, visit several high school classes and then attend a barbecue afterwards. Students will arrive at LCVI around noon and spend a couple of hours at the school.

Keep your fingers crossed for good weather on Friday, May 25th – our Kindergartens have a trip planned to the Ken Reid Conservation Area. This is all about learning about and experiencing the outdoors! Ken Reid’s educational programs are outstanding and fit well with many aspects of the the Kindergarten curriculum. Thank you to the Kindergarten team for organizing the trip; thank you to the many volunteers who without your help this trip would not be possible.
If the weather looks to be poor on Friday, the weather date is Monday, May 28th.
Parents and guardians of students in grades 7 and 8, our local Health Unit will be back this Friday, May 25th. Grade 7s are receiving a “booster” needle for their previous immunizations. Only grade 8s who have missed a previous needle will receive a needle this Friday. As always, thank you to the local Health Unit for providing this service.
One of Ms. Graham’s favourite trips of the year takes place tomorrow, Thursday, May 24th – the Blue Jays game! The Blue Jays take on the California Angels. This is an early afternoon game, timed for school groups to attend. Our grades 7s and 8s are going to have a great time! Let’s hope that the weather is nice and that the dome is open. If the dome is open, be sure to pack sunblock and a hat!
Parents and guardians of students in grades 5 to 8, we have had to move the Jump Rope for Heart Day to June 11th (from June 8th). We apologize for having to rebook the date a second time. LCVI has planned its grade 8 visits for June 8th (requiring us to move our Jump Rope date to June 11th).

Mrs. Starr would like to remind the DGH community that June Pizza and Milk orders are due this Wednesday, May 22nd. Hard to believe that these are the final pizza and milk orders for the year!
