Last Friday, April 26, was the final day of the Plastic Bag Grab Challenge. North Dundas collected over 6,000 bags to be recycled. Great job ND, and thanks to everyone who brought in bags! Now that this initiative is over, the WE team has another one in store for us! The WE team is collecting gently used clothes or small household items, which will be donated to two local charities; the Ye Olde Bargain Shoppe and the House of Lazarus. Bring in your items to help people in the community!
The music department of North Dundas has some fun activities planned, such as a Sundae Fundae Fundraiser, and a Community Concert. On Monday, April 29, and Tuesday, April 30, students and teachers were able to purchase ice cream sundaes to support the Senior Band. The weather is warming up, and it was nice to cool down by buying some ice cream! The Community Concert is a “pay-what-you-can” event. This means that you can enter the concert for any donation, no matter the value! The concert will be held at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Winchester (517 Main St. West), on Saturday May 4, at 5:00 p.m. The senior and junior concert bands and choir will be performing! You won’t want to miss it!
On Thurs., April 25, eight members of the high school track and field team travelled to Ottawa to compete in the first meet of the season. Alayna Gaudette placed 1st in javelin and 6th in shotput, Zac Hamilton placed 1st in long jump, Jack Link placed 2nd in the 3,000 meter and 9th in the 400 meter, Tyler Snelson placed 5th in the 100 meter and 15th in the 400 meter, Ashley Wheeler placed 5th in the 1500 meter, Katy Van Schyndel placed 9th in the 400 meter, Alvaro Castillejo Arjona placed 10th in the 1500 meter, and Rachel Puenter placed 26th in the 400 meter. Great job team! Keep up the hard work!
