DGH welcomes Ms. Berger to our school between November 11th and November 29th. Ms. Berger is a Student Teacher and she will be working with Ms. Clements in her grade 3/4 class. Ms. Berger is looking forward to the experience, as is Ms. Clements!
Lest we forget.
DGH, like the rest of Canada, will recognize Remembrance Day today. Our assembly will begin soon after our 1st recess.
While we do not glorify war, we do recognize the ultimate sacrifice that has been made by more than 100 000 Canadians. These Canadians gave their lives to protect the freedoms that we hold so dearly.

Our ever busy and school spirit driven Student Council has planned its next Spirit Day: Crazy Outfit Day next Friday, November 15th! This is the day to pull out of your clothing that clashes, doesn’t go together, or is just plain crazy looking! The gaudier and tackier…the better! Huskies – let’s rock the school spirit on this one and make our school a visual cacophony!
DGH community, a reminder that our Parent Council’s Holiday Fundraiser ends Friday, November 15th. All orders and money should be sent into the school on this date.

For all those who participated in the Elmira Chicken Order Fundraiser, the delivery will take place on Thursday, November 14th. Pickups begin at 2:00pm in our school’s front foyer.

DGH’s Remembrance Day Assembly takes place on Monday, November 11th. It will begin shortly after our 1st recess (our recess ends at 11:45am). Each student will receive a poppy, but we do ask for a small donation from each student (if possible). Students typically donate $1 for a poppy.
Don’t forget to add Friday, December 6th to your calendar – it’s our Parent Council’s Let It Snow Christmas Vendor Sale! The sale will run from 5:00pm to 9:00pm in our school’s front foyer and gym. Last year’s sale was a huge success and our Parent Council is hoping that this year’s will be equally successful! Please let family and friends know about our vendor sale. A copy of the flyer is below.
Thank you, Ms. Graham, for once again organizing the annual trip to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair! Students in these classes will be headed for a day of fun, checking out massive animal shows and exhibits, incredible food displays, and pretty much anything else to do with agriculture. It should be a great day for all!
Thank you to our local Health Unit who will be providing our grade 7s with their Hep B, HPV and Menactra immunization needle on Tuesday, November 12th. We appreciate the Health Unit coming to our school to provide this invaluable service for our students. Our students, on the other hand, may not be as excited about receiving the needle!
