Our Photo Retake Day is this Friday, November 16th. Students who were absent on our original Photo Day, or students who require retakes will be have their photos done on the 16th. Break out the smiles, students!
A reminder, DGH community, that our Parent Council’s Poinsettia Fundraiser is still on. All of the profits from this fundraiser come back to our Parent Council. We have a very active Parent Council that does many great things for our students. One of example of support would be our school’s team uniforms which were purchased by the Parent Council a few years ago and are used many times each year. Should you require a form or additional information, please feel free to contact our school’s office at 705-786-1915. Orders are due into the school this Friday, November 16th.
Thank you to all of our school members who were able to donate to the Student Council’s “WE Scare Hunger” Food Drive. As you can see by the photo, we received a large number of donations. The donations will be going to our local Little Britain/Oakwood Food Bank. All of your donations are greatly appreciated. Great school spirit, Huskies!
Thank you to Mrs. and Mr. Jessup, from the Royal Canadian Legion, for coming and speaking with our grade 7 and 8 students. Thank you for sharing why Remembrance Day is so important.
A reminder, DGH community, that our school will recognize Remembrance Day tomorrow after 1st recess. Each student will be given a poppy to wear. We ask that students bring a small donation for the poppy. All donations are given directly to the Royal Canadian Legion. Click here to see how the Legion uses these donations. Those who are able usually donate $1 for the poppy, but any donation is appreciated.
DGH community, our Parent Council is again offering the opportunity for a “Family Photo Night.” It takes place on Friday, November 16th between 5:30 pm and 8:30 pm. A flyer will be going home with students later this week, but we wanted to get the information out as soon as possible. You can click on the link below to access the flyer – which contains all of the key information. We do require a minimum of 10 families to sign up for this event to take place (if less than 10 families sign up, the event will, unfortunately, have to be cancelled). Families must be signed up by Wednesday, November 14th. Edge Imaging, the company who does our school photos, is running this evening. The reason for holding the photo evening in mid-November was so that photos would be ready by the Christmas holidays.
The DGH Parent Council is excited to announce its first “Let it Snow” Christmas Craft Sale on Friday, November 30th! The Parent Council is inviting vendors into our gym, between 5pm and 9pm, to sell their products. Click on the link directly below to view the flyer that was sent home with students yesterday. Some of the key information is provided below this link.
Welcome to our Let It Snow Shop! Run this year by the Dr. George Hall Public School Parent Council, we are excited to bring the Christmas spirit to town at the school with a variety of vendors and Christmas Joy to meet your Holiday gift giving needs!

Our next (and very popular) Spirit Day takes place on Monday, November 12th – Wear a Moustache Day! As many of our DGH community members know, November has become “Movember” for many. The purpose of Movember is to raise awareness of (and fundraise for) prostate and testicular cancer. We are asking students to wear a moustache on the 12th. Buy or make one (our students were INCREDIBLY creative last year) – just wear one!
Dr. George Hall PS will recognize Remembrance Day on November 9th. Our Remembrance Day Ceremony will begin around 11:35 am. This is a particularly important Remembrance Day as it is the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Remembrance Day officially takes place on November 11th – the day that World War I ended. Parents and family members are welcome to attend our ceremony (please sign-in at the office before coming to the gym).
More than 650 000 men and women served in the Canadian Armed Forces in World War I; more than 66 000 Canadians lost their lives in this war, and more than 172 000 were wounded.
I would encourage everyone to learn more about Canada’s contributions in the First World War by checking our Canada’s Veterans Affairs website by clicking here.
Thank you, Ms. Graham, for again organizing the grades 7 and 8 trip to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Since we live in a farming area, the trip to the Royal Winter Fair is a great choice! There is truly something for everyone at the Royal. Pretty much anything to do with farming with Ontario will be on display at the Royal! The trip takes place on Thursday, November 8th.
