Starting in April DLMS Students will be video recording our morning announcements and posting them to our school page. This is a great way for parents and others to keep up with the many events and activities that happen here. We have a great group of students in the Audio-Visual club and they are really looking forward to this new venture.
Students at all grade levels will be competing in sports events or cheering for competitors tomorrow morning. Students are reminded to dress appropriately for their events. If they will be on the ice tomorrow they need skates, helmets, and gloves or mitts.
For those who are cheering on their classmates- remember to dress for being outside.
Science Fair projects are the next "big" thing. Following March Break each Science teacher will be asking their students to develop a science project for school competition on March 19. 2010. The winner of the school based competitions will go on to the District Science Fair on March 25.
Remember to start planning early for the best possible project.
Ms. Vye will be starting Volleyball tryouts following March Break. She is looking for some volunteers to help with coaching and organizing the team this year. If you are willing to volunteer some time helping Dr. Losier to run a Varsity and Junior Varsity program please call the school at 778-6077 and ask for Ms.Vye or leave a message.
Beginning next week Mr. McCarthy will be working with a select group of grade six students on Language Arts skills. One group will work on reading skills that increase comprehension,such as visualizing, making connections, and questioning as you read. The other group will work on writing skills using the district wide 6+1 Writing Traits model. The project will last for twenty school days.
The Varsity boys team is nearing the end of a super season. The Boys will be wrapping up their season with two more tournaments both hosted here at Dr. Losier. The action will begin this weekend with the North Shore Championships. Seven teams will be participating and we are expecting some great match-ups as these teams battle it out to see who will take the championship this year. Dr. Losier's first game will begin at 10:30 am. If you get the chance stop by to cheer our boys on.

Once again the French Immersion Students at DLMS have arranged an in school food drive to support the Miramichi food bank. Especially during this season it is important to remember the needs of those who may need a helping hand during the holidays. Each student has been asked to bring in a non-perishable food item. The response from most classes and students has been generous. We know that many families in our community will benefit from the generosity of our students and their families.
