Dragon Update for March 5 – 9

Dance-a-thon Update!

A big congratulations goes to you Dragons, for raising an additional $125.00 to bring our total raised to $7500.00!  This means that Mr. Runstedler and Mrs. Papp will be getting slimed!  The “sliming” will take place this Wednesday during our Student of the Month Assembly.   Way to go Dragons!!

FITGO Challenge a great success!

All week the students of St. Dominic participated in the FITGO challenge.  Students participated in challenges that included physical activity, healthy eating and a healthy environment.  Students were trying new foods, drinking lots of water in reusable bottles and were moving their bodies as they tried out new fun games in gym class or out on the yard.  We will not stop making a commitment to being FIT in our minds, bodies and souls!

Skills Canada

Congratulations to our 25 Dragons who competed in Skills Canada this past week. It was a delight to watch as our Dragons put on an awesome display of Collaboration, Critical thinking, Creativity and Character. Thank you to Mr. Van Lammeren and Mr. Szdoda for serving as supervisors for the day! We are so proud of our Dragons!
