                        CANADA’S 150th

Did you know that February marks the 150 day countdown to Canada’s 150th Birthday? 

2017 is Canada’s Sesquicentennial and we plan on celebrating! 

CANADA DAY IN MAY! On May 1st we will celebrate Canada Day in May. Think Maker May with a Canadian Twist. Get your Canada flags ready!

CANADA MURAL! As we count down to the big day, students will work to gather 150 facts about our wonderful country. Each morning we will draw a new fact and read it during morning announcements before affixing it to our CANADA 150 mural in the piazza.

CANADIAN MUSIC MONDAYS! Starting on the first Monday in February and continuing every Monday until the end of the school year, we will play a song by a Canadian artist as students enter the building.

COMICS FOR CANADA! In February, the #jamwithjason bulletin board outside the Learning Commons will be transformed into a “Comics for Canada” board. Students will be invited to hang up comics that they create about famous Canadian people or events past and present. Our Studio Artist Jason will also be creating some cool comics for Canada. Watch for them in upcoming newsletters.

DDS AMBASSADORS! As one of Mayor Nenshi’s “3 Things for Canada” & “3 Things for Calgary” initiatives, our Eco Team is lining up some awesome DDS Ambassadors to help us tackle the traffic troubles in front of the school during morning drop off. You will soon see Grade 4 students wearing bright vests and offering to escort younger students to the back play area between 8:05 and 8:20am. 

Our “I HEART Canada" Family Dance will be held on February 15th . Families will be invited to wear red and white, dance the night away in the gym, and participate in some fun, Canadian themed events including an antique dress up photo booth.
