Grade 8 Graduation Success!

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Congratulations to our Grade 8 Graduates!  Last night’s graduation was a success!  10 years of effort in elementary school has prepared you for the next stage in your life.  Crossing the stage for graduation is ALWAYS a magical moment for both yourself and your families.


The graduates looked wonderful last night (all of the parental efforts in terms of shopping and hair appointments were certainly worth it).  DGH staff, as they always do, did a wonderful job with the overall evening’s organization and decorations.


Congratulations also go to individual award winners.  This was a very talented graduation group; individual award winners had to do extremely well to win an award!


A special thanks go to the many staff involved in graduation: the entire custodian team (Ms. Johnston, Mr. Florence and Mr. Stone) who solve a hundred different problems during the evening, Ms. Taylor and Ms. Starr who are the “behind the scenes” organizers of so many things to do with the night, Ms. Read who looks after the overall organization, the programme and the artwork, Ms. Cayley and Ms. Thurston who spent many, many hours making the decorating happen, Ms. Graham and Mr. Hetherington who got the shrubs and greenery and Ms. MacEachern who emceed the evening.

Report Cards Go Home Today (Wednesday, June 24th)

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Parents and guardians, Second Term Report Cards have been distributed to students this afternoon.  Report Cards should be in mailbags (for our JK and SK students), planners (folded in the plastic pouch at the front) or folded and placed in backpacks.


As you may know, there will not be comments on the report cards, but there are marks for the subjects taught this term.  There is a short message from Director Hope attached to each report card.


For families who require 2 copies of report cards, we will do our best to send a second copy home tomorrow (Thursday, June 25th).  If we are unable to do so tomorrow, we will send a second copy via the mail.

Students – you have done it!  After 10 years of elementary school preparation, you are ready to move onto high school.  All of your efforts have paid off.  Enjoy yourselves tonight.  Take a moment to reflect on your accomplishments (and EVERY student has many accomplishments of which they should be proud).


Parents – be proud of your daughter’s and son’s accomplishments!  They have all grown and matured and are ready for the next step in their lives.

Parents and guardians of grade 8 students, the DGH Grad Breakfast will be Tuesday, June 23 beginning after our morning announcements.


A number of staff and other volunteers (Mr. Boudreault – our Parent Council Co-Chair and Mr. Adams – Ms. Adams’ husband) will be coming in early to begin the breakfast and it will be served after announcements.  Mr. Parish will also be cooking; hopefully this does not lead to unexpected cases of food poisoning the day before graduation!


Thanks to all those helping to put on the breakfast.
