Dragon Update for January 15 – 19
Snow, Snow and more Snow! What a blustery, snowy filled week! With snow comes lots of opportunity for play and fun. Our students have really loved playing in the snow this week. They built forts, slid down hills and lots of snow people creations were made! Please continue to dress your child appropriately for the weather to keep everyone warm and safe!
Rocks and Rings – Our students in Grades 1-3 were treated to a day filled with Rocks and Rings! A curling instructor came to the school to offer the students an experience to participate in curling activities and provide an opportunity for students to learn about the game. A fun time was had by all! Take a look at the video link provided to check in on the action!
Mental Health Initiatives – Our Grade 7 and 8 students learned about mental health including ways to reduce and manage anxiety, depression and stress this past week. Our mental health Lead from the WCDSB came to complete a presentation to our students using engging videos and discussion. Thanks to Sharon Porty for your willingness to teach us important lessons in helping or well being.
Student Leaders in Action – Our very talented Grade 8 students had an opportunity this week to showcase the work that they have been doing with our Dragon Fit Program to a group of Principals from the Resurrection Family of Schools. At St. Dominic, we believe that the best people to share what is happening at the school are the students themselves! Way to go leaders and special thanks to the teacher champion behind the Dragon Fit program, our Grade 8 teacher, Anthony Van Looyen.
