Students from Mrs. MacDonald's 8C Social Studies class organized a varsity soccer game and raised $400 in support of the Miramichi Youth House. The students presented the cheque to Gail McKinley, staff supervisor at the organization. The students involved in the fundraiser are Joe Bourque, Hallie MacEachern, Emily Watling, Brennan MacDonald, Keith St. Pierre, Naomi McGowan and Tanner Somers (absent from photo).
We would like to thank all the students and staff at Dr. Losier for their generous support!
Friday Oct 7th
Mrs. MacDonald’s 8C Social Studies class will be hosting a mixed varsity soccer game during last period.
Cost is $2.00 per students and all money is going to support the Miramichi Youth House. This is a great opportunity for students to connect to their community. This organization is one the stduents of 8M chose and they are proud to have a chance to show their community spirit. We look forward to seeing every DLMS student at the game.
We held our annual Terry Fox Run on Friday afternoon organized by Mrs. Prince. There was a wonderful turn out! Mrs. Squire had issued a challenge to the students. If they raised $500, she would dress as a Super Hero next Friday. Nothing's been tabulated officially yet , but we hope that she is prepared to teach in a cape!
First Drama Opportunity
Students interested in DLMS' drama club turned out on Thursday night. We discussed how to use our voices and emotion to present poems and skits. The theatre was alive with laughter and silliness as we delved into Bruce Lanskey's "Giggle Poetry". Students received a monologue to present next week. Friday, students signed up for an audition time.(Posted on theatre doors.) See attachment for all audition information.
Second Drama Opportunity
Every year Dr. Losier undertakes one major fundraising campaign. Our fundraiser was launched today. Every student has been given a sheet which lists the products for sale. This is the same product as last year and the response from clients has been very positive students, staff, and parents all found the cookies, muffins, and brownies were delicious.
Message to parents,
With the first week of school behind us, I would like to take the time to welcome all parents and students back for another year.
The vital role of parents, guardians and families in the education of their children cannot be underestimated. The support you provide to your children and their school helps create a positive culture which contributes to the success of every student.
Our annual Meet the Teacher Night will take place on Wednesday, September 21st at 6:00 pm in the school theatre. At this time you will have the opportunity not only to meet your child’s teachers, but to find out their expectations and procedures for the 2011/2012 school year. We will be drawing for several prizes during this evening, as well as electing our new PSSC members. We look forward to meeting you at this time.
Several dates we’d like you to take note of:
On Tuesday, we are looking forward to welcoming our grade 6 students with our WEB (We Belong) day. Our grade 8 WEB leaders have an exciting day of activities planned. The morning will be filled with tons of activities that will introduce students to Dr. Losier and build excitement for the coming year. Students should dress comfortably for an active day. "Gym type" clothes would be best suites to Tuesday’s activities. A morning snack and lunch will be provided at the school.
We are making a presentation for the night of the grade eight dinner on June 14, 2011 at 4:30 p.m. We would like grade eight students to bring in a baby picture (1month- 4 years old). Pictures are precious, so please put your name on it. That way it will get back to you.
