As we fall into the first week of October, the school year just keeps getting busier.
Our annual Terry Fox Run happened on October 1st and it was a huge success! There was music pumping to boost everyone’s spirits, tons of awesome participation, and lots of smiles! It was an all-day event with each cohort at different times.
Some exciting things that happened this week around the school were: Mrs. Hall’s grade 9 phys. ed class used the new gym equipment and played frisbee golf,; Mr. Exner taught drumming to his grade 8’s,; and Mr.Whitton’s class explored CO2 cars as each student raced against each other.
North Dundas had our first fire drill which resulted in a very proud principal; all our students walked out of the school in an orderly and calm fashion. We are all pros! An upcoming important date is October 21st which is our picture day for all students; there will be no retake day so get your smiles ready and calendars marked!
ND seniors are anxiously researching and preparing for next year’s school year; they are looking into scholarships, universities, colleges, and applications.
Lastly, our community received wonderful news that a 2021 graduate of North Dundas District High School was signed to Mississauga Steelheads OHL, Adam Barkley. Everyone is beyond proud of his accomplishments and dedication. Congratulations Adam and best of luck!
Have a good start to your October and enjoy the fall weather!
