To start last week off, everyone had Monday off for Thanksgiving. The next day, Tues., Oct. 9, the students arrived back to school after their turkey-filled weekend. We hosted our annual student vs staff baseball game, and for the first time in many years, the students successfully beat the staff 17-6. The same day, the junior and senior girls’ basketball team played in our gym against Holy Trinity. Both junior and senior teams successfully won, with the Seniors reigning with 70-29, and the juniors with 35-26. A few days later on Thurs., Oct. 11, the basketball teams played another home game, once again both teams won over L’Heritage. The senior team won 52-31, and the junior team prevailed with a 42-21. The same day, the Junior and Senior boys’ volleyball teams played against St. Lawrence, and both teams won. On the previous day, Wed., Oct 10, the junior boys travelled to Seaway. It was a close, nerve-racking game that had to go into overtime, but ND won in the end. Last Friday, Oct. 12, we hosted our third annual ‘Milk Mosey’ run at the Joel Steele Community Centre, with the largest turnout we’ve ever had. Wed., Oct. 17, we are hosting all of SD&G in the same location.
Also, today, Halloween o’Grams are beginning to be sold for $2 outside of the guidance office at lunch for high school students. Buy one for yourself, your friends, or anyone else! They will get a sweet surprise. Later this week on Fri., Oct. 19, we are having our first spirit day of the month, jersey day. Come to school dressed in your favourite team’s jersey to earn points for your grade!
The food drive ends today, we want to thank everyone who brought in donations. You are making a difference. On Fri., Oct 5, the WE team hosted bake sale for the ‘Push for Change’ campaign to end youth homelessness. This raised over $160, way to go WE team!
