Don’t forget, DGH community, that tomorrow is our next Spirit Day – Twin Day! You could dress up as your favourite movie character. Or, perhaps twinning up as a favourite video game character would be a great idea! The possibilities are endless! DGH – let’s show our school spirit on Thursday!
Thank you, Ms. Graham, for once again organizing the Elmira Chicken Fundraiser. The Elmira Chicken Fundraiser began just before the March Break and continues to Tuesday, April 2nd. This is an opportunity, for those classes and students participating, to raise money towards year-end trips. Interested in supporting a student or purchasing product (if you do not have a child selling any chicken products), contact our office at 705-786-1915 and we can place an order for you.
DGH community, we are also turning this Thursday, March 21st into our next Spirit Day: Twins Day! We had a Twins Day earlier this year, which was extremely popular and our students did an amazing job. So – it is time to get creative, find a friend and “twin it up!” BUT – MAKE SURE YOU ARE TWINS WITH YOUR COLOURFUL SOCKS!
DGH community, we are challenging all of our community members to wear colourful socks this Thursday, March 21st. This day is designated as “World Down Syndrome Day.” On this day we seek to raise awareness of people with Down syndrome, their well-being and the importance of inclusion. Find your colourful socks!

As hard as it is to believe, our March Break is just around the corner! The March Break begins on Monday, March 11th; students return to school on Monday, March 18th. We hope that everyone has a safe and happy break, with extra time for family. We will all return on March 18th, recharged and ready for the final sprint to the end of the school year!
We are counting on more than a few of our students being extremely creative this Friday, March 8th. After all, this Friday is Western Day! Country music, horses and rustlin’ cattle are all things associated with a Western theme. Get those creative juices going, students! Let’s add some spirit into the school as we head into the March Break!
Good luck to Ryker S and Brooke W (our Junior level contestants) and Maddie B and Caitlyn G (our Intermediate level contestants) who will be representing DGH at the Woodville Legion Level competition tonight. All four are ready to be excellent representatives for our school. Thank you for your time and effort, students! We know that you will make us proud.
DGH community, our next Spirit Day is this Friday, March 8th – Western Day. This is one day where you CAN wear a hat – a COWBOY HAT, that is! Break out your plaid shirts and jeans, students. We have not had a Spirit Day in awhile, so let’s rock this one!
