Parents, guardians and students – Picture Retake Day is tomorrow (November 1st). Bring your best smiles and get ready to say “cheese” one more time! Picture retakes normally begin right after announcements in the morning.
Primary students – get ready for fun and activity! Jimmy Chapman and his high energy Breaking Dancing classes are back tomorrow (Tuesday, November 1). Most Primary classes will have a full period with Jimmy. Our Primary classes will be working with Jimmy on November 1, 15 and 22.
Don’t forget that we are asking each student to bring in $3 which covers half the cost of Jimmy’s classes.
Be sure that your son or daughter wears clothing and shoes which will allow them to be physically active.
Should be a great time!
We say goodbye to Ms. Ryan, who has been a student teacher in Ms. Burns’ grade 5 class since the beginning of the school year. Both Ms. Burns and her students have enjoyed having Ms. Ryan in the class! She has certainly fit well into DGH! Ms. Ryan’s last day is tomorrow, October 28th.
Good luck for the rest of the year. Ms. Burns has great things to say about you! Thank you to Ms. Burns for hosting student teachers. Our future teachers need classes in which to hone their craft, so your hosting is appreciated.
Students and staff alike are excited that Jimmy Chapman is back on Tuesday, November 1st. One of the most popular parts of the year for the past few years, Jimmy Chapman brings his high-energy dance routines to our students. The smile on our students’ faces tells you how much they enjoy it.
Each class will have 3 different sessions with Jimmy. Our Primary division will be working with Jimmy on November 1st, 8th and 15th. Our Junior and Intermediate divisions will be working with Jimmy on November 22nd, 29th and December 6th. Over the course of their 3 sessions, students will be learning dance moves to put into a routine.
As in past years, we are asking that students pay $3 towards the cost of Jimmy Chapman coming to the school (which is roughly half the cost).
This Friday, October 28th is Ms. Ryan’s last day at DGH. Ms. Ryan has been a Student Teacher in Ms. Burns’ class since the start of the school year. The grade 5s have certainly enjoyed having Ms. Ryan in their class and Ms. Burns’ has many great things to say about her as a beginning teacher! Ms. Burns is sad to see her go!
Thanks so much for your efforts at DGH over the past 2 months. We wish you the best of luck!
Our grade 7s and 8s will be receiving a MADD presentation on the afternoon of October 26th. Our soon to be driving students (just 4 years or less at this point parents!) will be hearing about the dangers of drinking and driving. This is an important message that our younger students benefit from.
Thanks to the MADD organization for bringing this “no cost to the school” presentation.
The DGH Parent Council is kicking off its Little Caesars Fundraiser today! This is a popular and practical fundraiser. The product tastes great and having a pizza (or any of the other food available) in the freezer to pop in the oven is a quick and easy meal.
All of the profits from the fundraiser goes directly to supporting students and the school. In the past few years, the Parent Council has used fundraising to purchase SmartBoards and other technology, 2 hydration stations and a large DGH logo’ed tent that is used at sporting and other events at the school.
The Parent Council is an important part of our school as is your fundraising support – it is always appreciated.
Fundraiser Begins on Monday, October 24th
Fundraiser Forms and Money Due Into School on Friday, November 11th
Product Delivery is Thursday, December 1st
Should you any questions regarding the fundraiser or are looking for a student to support, please feel free to contact the school at 705-786-1915.
Parents and guardians, we are asking that students leave all types of trading cards (e.g., Pokemon and hockey cards) at home. We have had a number of issues in the past few weeks that have had led to a number of arguments between students.

Check out Lanny MacDonald’s moustache! A star NHL player from the 1970s and the 1980s, he was famous for his bright red moustache.
Our next Spirit Day of the year is this Friday – Moustache Day! Don’t disappoint us, students! Get creative and pull off the ‘stache for this Friday.
Ms. Cayley and the Me To We Team will be headed off to Toronto on Wednesday, October 19th for this year’s We Day Conference.
We Day is all about “doing good” on a local, national and international level. In order to get tickets for the event, the school (and participating students) have to commit to conducting charity work on these 3 different levels. This is all about creating global citizens.
