Dragon Update for February 5 – 9
Dance A Thon is Here!!
Our Dance-a-thon is quickly approaching and we are getting excited! It will be held this Friday, February 9, 2018. This is our major fundraiser for the year, so keep collecting those pledges Dragons for a chance to win some amazing prizes! Lots of students have been able to take advantage of our Early Bird draws which started on Thursday! Please continue to gather your pledges this week and remember to bring all pledge forms and money to school on Friday, the day of the dance-a-thon. Glow bracelets will also be for sale on Friday, 3 bracelets for $1.00. We can’t wait to dance the day away!
Bell Let’s Talk Day
This week we were able to recognize Bell Let’s Talk Day. Our school participated by listening to announcements about mental health, watched some engaong videos and wrote message of hope to those who struggle. We will continue to support this initiative by dropping the stigma and understanding that mental health is nothing to be ashamed of.
Pets on the School yard
At St. Dominic’s, we love pets! However, it is our goal to have all students and staff feel that the school environment is a safe place for everyone. Safety comes first at our school, and for that reason we are asking all families to respect our policy that pets are not allowed on school property during the school day (including time before and after the school day bell times.)
Peace Tree Bake Sale
On Thursday, February 8th, the Peace Tree will be offering a bake sale at St. Dominic’s. We are looking for donations of baked goods including cakes, cookies, cupcakes, etc. to help support Peace Tree Initiatives. Please drop off any peanut free treat you may wish to donate. Please come on by on Thursday to take a look and buy a sweet treat for a great cause! Thank you in advance for your support.
