Do not forget, DGH community, that tomorrow (Thursday, April 4th) is a Spirit Day: PJ Day! We are asking students to donate $1 in order to participate. All of this money will be used by the Student Council to support charities (one of the things it is required to do in order to participate in the WE Day event each year). This is a perfect time to break out your Dallas Cowboys pajamas!
DGH community, this Friday, April 5th will be a PA Day. The focus for this PA Day will again be Math. Staff will be digging into strategies and learning to support our students in Math. Students, enjoy your long weekend!
Go Huskies Go! Our Junior Basketball Team competes at its County Tournament this Thursday, April 4th. Coached by Ms. Rowsell, the team is ready to give its best.

Go Huskies Go!
Do not forget, grade 8s, that your grad photo day is TOMORROW! Get your best smile ready! Your grad photo will be a keepsake that your parents will cherish forever.
Our ever busy Student Council wants to lead our school into this long weekend with a bang! They have designated this Thursday, April 4th as our next Spirit Day – PJ Day! This is definitely one of the more popular Spirit Days of the school year, with an always large number of students and staff participating. The Student Council is asking students to donate $1 for wearing PJ’s. All of this money will go towards charities supported by the Student Council. Each year our Student Council participates in the WE Day event in Toronto; one of the requirements for this is support local and international charities.
A final reminder, DGH community, that we are asking all of our school members to wear blue tomorrow in recognition of World Autism Day. We truly want to make DGH a wave of blue tomorrow.
