As part of our Community Chest Dress Day on Wednesday, May 23rd, students are encouraged to wear clothes that represent the country they are from. It can be traditional clothing or clothing in the colours of their country. If students want to wear traditional clothing, I recommend wearing casual clothes underneath that they can wear if they get too hot. To participate, students must bring in a $20 donation for Community Chest. Parents are welcome to participate as well! Please join us in celebrating our diversity.

Today the grade ones attended a presentation in the auditorium. We had parent volunteers come in and tell us about the services they provide in our community. They talked about their job responsibilities, the uniforms they wear and the tools they use to do their job. The students were very engaged and came up with some great audience questions and answers! This presentation related to our current Social Studies unit - Our Local Community.
On Friday, April 6, tragedy struck a Canadian hockey community. While traveling to a playoff game in a nearby town, a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos, a Canadian junior hockey team, collided with a transport truck on a highway north of Tisdale, Saskatchewan. In total twenty-nine people were on the bus including most of the hockey team made up of young men aged 16 to 20. The heartbreaking accident resulted in a loss of life for 15 of the passengers and serious injuries to the remaining 14 passengers.
The nation quickly responded with an outpouring of sympathy and condolences. An emergency fund was set up to help the families affected. DSC has donated CAD$10,000 towards this fund. In addition, the school will hold a free dress day on Friday, April 13, 2018. The School will not collect donations for this free dress day. Please join us in helping families affected by this tragedy and donate directly to the fund established in support of the families.
