DGH has a very active Parent Council which likes to do many things around our school and for our students. Its next fundraiser is its always popular Little Caesars fundraiser!
Profits from the fundraiser will go into “general” Parent Council fundraising. Funds have been used in the past, to purchase technology (e.g., SmartBoards and data projectors), uniforms and items such as the large tent used for outdoor sporting events. As always, all profits are used to support students in the ways noted.

DGH community, for those students who ordered pitas from our Pita Pit lunch programme, pitas will be delivered TOMORROW, Wednesday, January 9th.
DGH community, a reminder of the TLDSB Messenger App that our board has been using this year (a slightly different version of the app used in previous years). Click on the link below to access a pdf version of the pamphlet which explains how to opt into the app. DGH tends to send out School Messenger information via e-mail (as opposed to text messages or phone calls); however, critical information WOULD be sent out via text messages and phone calls (e.g., an emergency school closure or serious issue at the school). General school information continues to be sent out regularly to our website and Facebook, along with Twitter (and Instagram).
I would encourage all those who are able to sign up for School Messenger as it is a useful communication tool. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office at 705-786-1915.
How do we know that the school year is well underway? Because LCVI’s Guidance Counsellors will be visiting our grade 8s this Wednesday, January 9th to discuss course selections for grade 9. Thank you, LCVI staff, for visiting and sharing your knowledge. After the guidance counsellor’s visit, students will receive course selection packages to take home and discuss with parents and guardians. Guidance counsellors will be back on Tuesday, January 29th to help students enter their course selections online. LCVI will host a grade 8 information night at some point in January (once this information is available, it will be shared with our grade 8 community).
