Admin Message | January

So many people contribute to helping make Douglasdale School such an amazing school community. We’d like to thank:

Everyone who brought in toiletry items for our charity Christmas tree. We filled 10 stor-age boxes of items and delivered them to the Mustard Seed.

All who attended our Christmas Celebrations and our staff, particularly Mr. Anderson, our music teacher, and Mr. Fidler, who worked with our grade 3 cast

Everyone who brought in food items for the Veteran’s Food Drive in November

All room parents, parents and others who have volunteered for field trips, classrooms, and other school events and activities and Morgan, who organized them all.

Laurie, and the School Council Executive for working on behalf of all the staff, students and parents of Douglasdale School.

Douglasdale Loves Literacy Tutors for sharing their time and Suzanne for all her organizing

Erin and Christine who led our most successful beef jerky Fundraiser and all who bought the jerky. (Chace in AM K, Miles in PM K, and Elliot in Gr. 1 won the draw for front row seats at the concerts)

Parents who provided dinner and treats for staff on conference evenings.

David who helped organize our Strategy Games Nights

Our “Painting Crew” who have done such a great job on our building

There are so many who offer support in so many ways! If we have forgotten to thank you, our apologies. We are truly grateful for everyone’s contribution.

We are saying “goodbye” to two staff members. We’d like to thank Mr. Don Lawson for his years of service helping to maintain Douglasdale School. We wish him the best at his new location. We would also like to thank Ms. Leanne Black who is moving from our CSSI classroom to a position at Area 5. We wish her the best of luck, as well. We’d like to welcome Ms. Lisa MacGillivray who will be teaching Grade 4 as Mrs. Wilde leaves on her maternity leave.

Finally, we would like to thank our amazing staff who demonstrate excellence and incred-ible commitment to our students every day. We appreciate all their hard work and dedi-cation that makes learning at Douglasdale School exceptional.

May peace, joy, love and hope surround you and your loved ones all year and especially during this Christmas season. Happy New Year!
