Parents and guardians of students currently in grade 8, do not forget that tomorrow, February 9th, is LCVI’s grade 9 Information Night. If you have questions about the transition to grade 9 or simply want to learn more, then this is the evening for you.
The Information Night begins at 6:30 p.m..
The DGH Student Council has set its next Spirit Day! It is no surprise that Red, White and Pink Day has been set for Friday, February 12th (just before Valentine’s Day).
Students, you can have A LOT of fun on this Spirit Day! Yes, you can simply wear the above colours. But, really, you can go much further! Just how creative can you be? We have had some pretty impressive creativity in past Spirit Days – so we have high expectations for this day! You know the themes that go with Valentine’s Day, so show your Huskies’ spirit students!
Parents and guardians of students in JK, SK and grades 2, 4, 6 & 8, the local Health Unit will again be conducting dental screening at DGH. This will be taking place this Tuesday, February 9th.
This is a very valuable service provided by the Health Unit, so we greatly appreciate their visits to DGH!
A reminder to our grade 8 students and parents, that LCVI will be holding its Grade 9 Information Night on Tuesday, February 9th. The night begins at 6:30 p.m. and lasts until roughly 8:00 p.m.. This is a great night for parents and students to check out the high school, learn about how a high school operates and reduce some of the possible anxiety about the transition to high school! High school staff may have done this a few times!
LCVI is the high school which the majority of DGH’s students attend – and Spartan Pride runs deep in the community!
Hopefully the cold(ish) weather remains to February 10th! Mrs. Read has once again organized a tubing and cross-country skiing trip for the intermediate classes, along with Mr. Hetherington’s grade 5/6 class. It is a popular trip each year and one that is a blast for the kids.
Permission forms should have gone already (or will be soon), so please came an eye out for them. Keep your fingers crossed so that we will have enough snow. It is a little bit different than last year when we had to cancel the trip (at least once) due to the extreme cold!
Do not forget, DGH school community, that tomorrow is a PA Day.
A long weekend, students? This would be a great time to get caught up on any outstanding homework or assignments, perhaps a read good book, or even get a headstart on some assignments. No school work to do? Perhaps get outside and enjoy some physical activity!
We see you back at school on Monday.
A reminder for our grade 8 students and parents that IE Weldon holds its Grade 9 Information Night tonight at 9:00 p.m.. Most DGH students go to LCVI (our home high school); however, there are a few students (who take particular courses or programmes) that attend IE Weldon.
Parents, guardians and students – due to bus cancellations today, ALL sports teams and tryouts at DGH will be cancelled for today.
Students will be enjoying a long weekend due to the PA Day on Friday, February 5th. While students will be enjoying a day of extra time for reading and art, teachers will be working away on Report Cards. Report Cards go home on Friday, February 19th.
