Thursday, September 26, was a big day for North Dundas events. The 2019 Milk Mosey was held at the Winchester Arena by our school’s staff and student volunteers. They day began very rainy, but the sun did end up coming out. There was chocolate milk at the finish line for all of the runners, so congratulations to all of our athletes and thank you to everyone who helped out! 

Thursday evening was our Glow Dance. Many students bought tickets to come and join us for a night of dancing, singing, and glowing. The participation was incredible, and we look forward to planning more dances to continue the fun. 

Today is Orange Shirt Day to raise awareness for residential schools in Canada. Thanks to everyone who showed their support.  

Finally, due to the Work-to-Rule action by support staff within the school board, our school’s extra-curricular activities have been postponed until further notice. This does not include our annual Terry Fox Run which will take place on October 4 from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m., as it will be organized by our Grade 11 and 12 leadership class. Money and sponsor forms are due today Monday, September 30, thank you to all who donated, and thanks to all of the students who will be participating.
