Students had a short week last week, with Friday being a PA day. Even though it was short, it was still eventful, especially on Thursday.
On Thursday, Nov. 22, Grade 12 students were busy organizing and setting up activities like Pie the Prime Minister, the spaghetti dinner, and cake auction. Pie the Prime Minister took place at lunch, and students and teachers had a blast throwing a pie-plate full of whipped cream at our Prime Minister, Bradley McLean. At the spaghetti dinner, students and parents donated their entire night to setting up before and cleaning up after the event. A humongous thank you goes out to Dan Pettigrew from Winchester Foodland and Kary Woods for their generous food donations. The cake auction desserts were mainly donated by students, and a thank you goes to Brandon Scheepers for being the auctioneer at the event. Parents, students, and the community make these events successful. Everyone at ND thank you for your continuous support!
Last Wednesday, Nov 21 was pink shirt day. Students and staff wore pink shirts to support bullying awareness and prevention week. WE team even did a fun “get caught caring” activity. If you were caught caring, WE team members put your name on a ballot to draw for a prize!
Blind Volleyball was scheduled Friday of this week, Nov. 30, but it has been changed to regular volleyball and will take place Thurs., Nov 29. This game is free to attend, and we ask for all students and staff to wear their “Dundas Pride” to support their respective teams.
Our first dance of the year is going to be on Wed., Dec. 5. It is going to be a glow dance, and Grade 9-12s can purchase tickets for $10 outside of guidance at lunch.
NDIS is doing an angel tree this year to help the Lions Club provide gifts for youth in our community. We want as many as possible deserving children to receive presents, so please encourage your child to take an angel off the tree. Presents are to be brought unwrapped to the Student Support Room by Mon., Dec 14.
As the beginning of December is approaching, students and staff are getting into the holiday spirit. Stay tuned for many fun upcoming events and activities!
