How do you keep students interested on the last day before vacation? How about with some dry ice and electricity? Not at the same time, of course! Mme. Brunet handled the Icy, Mr. Smith took on the Shocking.

The Spirit of Giving at MDJH
- Christmas Families
This year we were able to help 42 families as part of our Christmas Families program, the greatest number of families that we’ve supported yet!
We received/purchased over $4000 in gift cards to groceries stores to support our families. The money came from staff donations, local business donations, in-school fundraisers like the Friday ice cream sales, etc.
We also had two families directly sponsored by local businesses, which will help them have a very happy holiday season.
A huge Firework! to Ms. Watton for organizing this event, and to Mr. Connolly and Ms. Quann for their assistance.
2. Christmas Food Drive
Our Christmas Food Drive was a tremendous success! Thank you to all who donated a non-perishable food item or grocery store gift card. Items were donated to The Gathering Place. Thanks to Mr. Connolly for organizing the drive and being the Man Behind The Mic!
Adopt A Senior 2020
We at MDJH would like to send out a big “Thank You!” to our generous school community. With your help, this was, by far, the best year yet for our Adopt A Senior program. We were able to provide 31 gifts for the seniors of St. Patrick’s Nursing Home. In addition to the gifts for 31 seniors, we donated numerous bags full of supplies for the powder rooms for use by all, consisting of shampoo, body wash, razors, shaving cream – enough to last months. We also donated many cases of ginger ale, chocolates and candies for the lounge areas. Way to go, Grizzlies!
