On behalf of the DGH staff, I would like to wish our entire community a safe and happy holiday. We truly wish that every family has the opportunity to spend extra time together during this busy time of the year. We are looking forward to seeing everyone back in January, refreshed and recharged! It is hard to believe that we are already 4 months into the school year (with September to the end of December often feeling like the longest stretch of the year). When we come back in January, it often feels like the pace of the activities and events happening in our school only increases!
January promises to be a busy month for our students.
Each of our volleyball teams will be competing in their County Volleyball tournaments. The Junior Mixed team competes on Monday, January 15th at Fenelon Falls Secondary School, the Senior Girls team competes at Central Senior Public School on Monday, January 22nd and the Senior Boys team competes at Fenelon Falls Secondary School on January 29th. Each of the teams has been practising hard and we know that we will give us their best efforts at their tournaments. Thanks to both students and staff for their efforts.
The end of their elementary school career is in sight for our grade 8s! Friday, January 12th sees LCVI Guidance Counsellors talking about course selections with our soon to be graduates and they return on Tuesday, January 30th to help our grade 8s fill out their online course selection forms. The LCVI Information Night for grade 8s and their parents takes place on Thursday, January 25th.
Other events include the LCVI Band performing on Friday, January 12th (always popular – and it is great to see former DGH grads performing), Mrs. Burns’ class welcomes Scientists in the School on Thursday, January 18th and there is a PA Day on Friday, February 2nd.
Enjoy the two respite, DGH community; when we return in January the school year is going to be awfully busy!
