Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week
Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is February 12-15th. We would like to ask our school community to show appreciation for the staff of MDJH by providing treats for our staff at recess and lunch. As in past years, we would like to have grade levels provide treats on different days:

  • Monday, February 12 – Grade 7
  • Tuesday, February 13 – Grade 8
  • Wednesday, February 14- Grade 9

If you are able to send along a treat, please email or All treats must be peanut free.

ME to WE
MDJH is a WE School and we participate in several local and global campaigns each year in efforts to support our community and the world. Our global focus is education in Ecuador and this year we will participate in the campaign “WE Walk for Water“. This is a school-wide water walk which will take place on Friday, April 27. We are asking for a donation of a toonie on that day in order to raise money for this cause. Thank you for your support!
