Month: April 2022
We would like to wish a Happy Eid Al Fitr to those in our community who are getting ready to celebrate on Monday, May 2!
MDJH Update – April 27
A couple of items to share:
We are now in the last stretch of the 2021-2022 school year. Please refresh your child’s school supplies. We have been receiving many requests at the office for pencils, pens and paper.
On Friday, May 6, MDJH will be having a pizza day! The minister for Windsor Lake, the Honorable John Hogan, will be providing pizza to all MDJH students! There will be pepperoni and cheese pizzas, and there will be a gluten-free option available at the office.
Students will be coming home with 10 more rapid tests (2 boxes). The homeroom teachers will be distributing these to the students today.
Please remind your children to be their best selves at the food establishments and other businesses in our community. We continue to get calls complaining about the behaviour of students. Also, please remind them to use the crosswalk.
Exciting addition to our MDJH Webpage
We have added a new link, ‘Morning Announcements,’ to the main menu on the school’s web page. The MDJH community are now able to check the announcements read over the PA to students each day. They will be posted each day by 8:15.
Happy Holidays from MDJH!
As we get ready to celebrate over the break, we at MDJH would like to wish all the members of our community a safe and relaxing holiday. We’ll see our students back here on Monday, April 25th, where it will be Day 1 on the schedule.
Early Dismissal Tomorrow – April 14th
A reminder that students will be dismissed at 1:08 pm tomorrow (Thursday, April 14th), and regular bus runs will begin at that time.
We will reopen on Monday, April 25th, and it will be Day 1 on the schedule.
Masking in Schools Extended
As announced in the press conference today, masking in schools and on buses will be extended until at least May 13th.
Diversity and Inclusion Project Winner
Congratulations to our former Grade 8 student Rose Rashid, who won third place with her entry to the provincial Diversity and Inclusion Project.
Contest: How Many Eggs?
Guess how many eggs are in the jar, and you could win the eggs! Guesses must be handed in to your homeroom teacher or to the office. In the event of more than one student guessing the correct number, a winner will be selected from a random draw of the correct guesses.
