Today’s News
Mr Demers second period electrical class.
Report to the library or cafeteria to complete your electrical labs.

Could you imagine not having enough money to go on the next class field trip, or not getting a new pair of glasses because your parents can't afford it.  This is the reality of many students at the DSBN.  A non-profit organization, Education Foundation Niagara, supports DSBN students who want to go on field trips or who need a new pair of running shoes so they can join in on gym classes.  Today Interact will be hosting a fundraiser to support this very important cause.  We wil have delicious baked goods and mystery candy bags for sale in the front foyer.  You could also win a pass for Clifton Hill when you support this fundraiser.  So bring your loose change, buy a delicious treat and support an important cause.   Jayden & Christine, you will be selling today at lunch!

Tonight, is our last evening ski. Students do not get released until 1:45 today.
The day ski is this Thursday.  Students must email Ms. Cripps by the end of today if they will not be present for the day ski. Lunch will be provided and we are charged on a per person basis, thus let's not pay for anyone who will be absent.
