December has quickly approached

It’s hard to believe that December is already here. North Dundas is getting ready for lots of holiday fun!

ND has two angel trees up this year, with LOTS of tags, that Student Council members helped set up and decorate after school. There is one upstairs for the intermediates, as well as one downstairs for the high school students. Students and staff have the opportunity to pick a tag off of the tree and make a difference in our community by purchasing a small gift to donate to a family that is in need this holiday season. Our angel trees will be available for donations from November 29th to December 13th. North Dundas will make sure that the big man in red will have a gift to deliver on Christmas Eve!

ND is supporting prostate cancer this year by having a day where students and staff can create their own mask with a moustache on it! On November 30th, students will be given a mask to draw a moustache on to show their support to prostate cancer.

Thursday, November 25th, our senior boys’ volleyball team travelled to Heritage High School to play in the semi – finals. The boys lost their first set, but came back to win their second set. They had a tough battle in the third set, and ended up losing. ND is proud of how far our seniors went and are glad that they were able to have somewhat of a normal season.

Our spirit day this past week, Hawaiian Day, was a tremendous success! We went against our rival school of Seaway District High School to see what school had the most spirit, and with no doubt North Dundas won! Our school has always been full of wonderful participation and spirit, and we really proved it this past week. We are looking forward to show it all again!

Have a wonderful start to your December!

More spirit at ND! (Nov. 15-19)

Another week has past, and some more spirit has been shared in the halls of North Dundas. This past week Student Council had our first “Anything but a Backpack Day.” It was a huge success, and we saw many creative ideas – desk chair, cat carrier, helmets, laundry baskets, hockey bags, and much more!

Our next spirit day is Thursday, November 25th, with a Hawaiian Day against our rival school, Seaway District High School. Our students and staff will dress as if they are vacationing on the beautiful island of Hawaii. Whichever school has the most points wins! It will be a fun competition by all!

This past Thursday, North Dundas hosted La Citadelle’s junior and senior boys’ volleyball teams to play our own. The junior boys lost their first set 21-25, but bounced back with their next set, 25-14. Their last set was unbelievable, with long rallies and wonderful plays, but lost 25-27. The senior team lost their first set 18-25 but played how we know they can and won their second, 25-19. Their third set was close all the way through but ND ended up losing 25-17. It was a fun day for all the boys, no matter the outcome.

Just a reminder to all that this Friday (Nov. 19) is our first PA Day of the year. Students are already looking forward to it!
