DGH’s grades 6 to 8 students are headed to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair on Thursday, November 9th. DGH’s students have made this trip many times, which is not a surprise given our being in a farming community! Many DGH students, over the years, have shown their farm animals at the Royal. It should be a day for our students – enjoy yourselves!
DGH’s Student Council is an active one! Soon after organizing the Husky Halloween Haunt, they have organized our next Spirit Day: Twin Day! Twin Day takes place THIS Friday, November 3rd. This is a Spirit Day that has been done in the past and our students never disappoint. Pick out a friend, students, and figure out how you are going to dress for the day. Get creative and make it look good!
MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) visits DGH on Thursday, November 2 to reinforce its message about the dangers of drunk driving. Information on MADD is available on the link below. Our grade 7 and 8 students will receive this presentation.
Our grade 7 and 8 students are only a few short years away from driving. Continuing to reinforce the importance of not driving while impaired with alcohol or drugs is incredibly important. According to the MADD website, an average of 4 people a day in Canada are killed in accidents in which the presence of alcohol and/or drugs was detected in drivers. Unfortunately, young drivers are the most likely to be involved in accidents and the use of alcohol and/or drugs only increases these odds.
Thank you, MADD, for spreading this critically important message.
Thank you to Mrs. Mueller and Mr. Boudreault for looking after the Little Caesars Pizza Orders last Friday. Almost everything was picked up within a couple of hours – pretty impressive!
Afraid of haunted houses? Scared by Halloween and everything that goes with it? Then DGH’s gym may not be the place for you this Tuesday, October 31st! DGH’s Student Council is bringing back an event that was run in years past – the Husky Halloween Haunt. The Student Council will be busy setting up the gym for Halloween day – one half for our older students and the other half for our younger students. Having not seen a Husky Halloween Haunt before (it is Mr. Parish writing the post), I am not entirely what to expect. Knowing our Student Council, I am sure it will be scary AND great! Thank you for organizing!
A reminder, DGH community, that the Little Caesars pickup (from the Parent Council Fundraiser) takes place tomorrow (Friday, October 27th). The pickup will be between 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
Thank you to all those who were able to support the Parent Council!

DGH welcomes Angela Wilkins, from Skills Canada, today! She will be discussing the importance of the Skilled Trades in Ontario and future career opportunities in the trades. The presentation takes place during the 3rd block.
Interested in learning more about the Skilled Trades in Ontario? Check out the link below! Remember, Skills Canada is actively trying to build female interest in the trades!
One final reminder, DGH students, that we are asking you to wear PURPLE tomorrow! Aside from PURPLE being a great colour (it is the colour of royalty, after all), wearing PURPLE shows your awareness of the right of children to be safe and have their well-being respected. Our children are our legacy, so there are few, if any, goals more important than this day’s purpose!
You can check the link below for more information on Dress Purple Day.
DGH, let’s make our school a sea of PURPLE tomorrow!
