DGH Spirit Day – April 15th – Super Hero Day!

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Jumping buildings with a single leap.  Swinging from building to building with a spider web.  Racing down the streets in their own Batmobile.   Just a few of the super powers that our favourite super heroes might have!

 

The Student Council has set this Friday, April 15th as “Super Hero” Spirit Day at DGH!

 

Feeling talented?  How about creating your favourite Super Hero’s outfit?  I suppose if you were really, really creative, you could create your own Super Hero!

 

Wearing a shirt with your favourite super hero on it or their logo on it would be just fine, too!

 

Show your Super Hero pride, DGH!

Junior Volleyball Team Shout-Out!

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Our Junior Mixed Volleyball Team play some very skilled volleyball at Mariposa last Thursday during the Zone tournament at Mariposa.  Our first set was against Leslie Frost. We won the first game 25-20 but lost the second game 25-16.  This meant that we were onto the 15 point tiebreaker game.  This final match was a nail biting game and point for point rallies made every serve count!  We had phenomenal serves from all of our players but in the end we lost the final match by only 3 points!

 

Our next set was against the home team, Mariposa.  Again we came out strong in the first game at won 25-23.  In the second game we had a loss of 24-26 which meant another 15 point tiebreaker game.  In the final game it was again point for point with fantastic rallies and very competitive plays!  The whole game was one great play after another.  Unfortunately we were not able to secure a win in the final moments and Mariposa won with a score of 12-15.  

 

Overall it was a very exciting and well matched tournament!  Even the convenor commented on the high level of competition and skill brought by all teams!  Played to the very last point was the theme of the day!

 

Honorable mention goes out to the boys who played the whole tournament with no substitutions!  (due to illness and injury we were down 2 male players).  Congrats on great leadership and powerhouse serves from our captain Emma Lees! Ms. Arscott could not be any more proud of the skill, enthusiasm and team spirit that our players brought to the court!  They should be very proud of all that they accomplished this season.

 

Special thanks to all parent drivers and fans who supported us and cheered us on!  Thanks as well, to the Sr. Volleyball teams who were always willing to play and practice with us during their recess times.

OPP Media Release and Letter Going Home Today

posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH community, please note the information below.  The letter is being put out in addition to the OPP media release.  All of this information will be going home in a letter to all students (both the DGH letter and the OPP media release).

 

Dear Parents / Guardians;

 

The safety of our students both in school and in the community is our first priority.

 

Please review the attached OPP media release about an incident and subsequent reports of suspicious vehicles.

 

Our staff members continue to be diligent about safety at school.  Please review personal safety with your child(ren).

 

Here are some tips from the OPP:

 

  • Never approach a vehicle or person you don’t know, even if they seem nice
  • Never go anywhere with a stranger
  • Always tell your parents where you are going and when you will be home
  • Encourage your child to use a buddy system instead of walking alone
  • Stay in well lit, populated areas, especially when walking at night
  • Teach your child where to go and how to get help by walking with them around the neighbourhood
  • Develop a “what if” game with your child to get them thinking of how they would respond if they felt afraid
  • Yell out as loud as you can “leave me alone” or something else to draw attention to the “stranger”
  • Teach your child what a “safe stranger” is in case they need help. “Safe strangers” include police officers, firefighters, a cashier at a local store, etc.

 

OPP Media Release

 

FROM/DE:   City of Kawartha Lakes OPP                         DATE: April 8, 2016

 

FACEBOOK POST ABOUT SUSPICIOUS VEHICLE

 

(CITY OF KAWARTHA LAKES, ON) –   On April 5, 2016 a suspicious vehicle was reported to the City of Kawartha Lakes (CKL) detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) in the Cameron area.  The vehicle had stopped and attempted to speak to a female grade 8 student.  The student immediately ran back to their residence.

 

A Facebook post alerting area residents to the situation was made by concerned citizens.  The driver of the involved vehicle was notified of the post and contacted the police to straighten out the situation on April 7.  Police do not believe there was any malicious intent in this interaction.

 

As a result of the recent Facebook the following incidents were reported to police:

 

  • Several months ago, mid-December or January, in Victoria Road a male driver had approached a female, 11 year old student and offered them a ride home.  When the student replied no, the vehicle pulled away.
  • In Washburn Island a black pick-up truck has been seen in the area the last two weeks.  On one occasion the black pick-up truck had an ATV in the back.  On a second occasion the truck was parked near a mailbox cluster.  The male driver of the truck has not had any interactions with kids in the area.  The male driver is described as wearing a camouflage coat.

 

Police would like to speak with the above drivers.  If anybody has information about the above incidents please contact the City of Kawartha Lakes OPP at 705-324-6741.   Residents are also being asked to report suspicious vehicles and persons to the police as soon as possible.

 

OPP are reminding all members of the public to be aware of their personal safety and that of children at all times.  The OPP’s website, www.opp.ca contains a number of useful resources, tips and links.
