ASAP Newspaper Publishes First Edition

Students in Middle School saw the need for a student-run newspaper.  They convinced Mr. Munro to oversee the after school activity and have been working hard since January to put together the first edition.  These twelve students take on different roles such as editor, researchers, photographers, cartoonists and of course, writers.  Please enjoy reading.

DAIS Update January 30, 2018

CREDIT Rights Managed / For Education Use Only
DAIS is beginning to feel whole again with only 6 children away today. This is so much better than a few days last week when we had 28 to 30 children away. The flu bug definitely made it’s way through our community impacting both children and adults. Happy to know that we are all on the mend.


We have a number of items on our calendar, but one in particular which we are super excited about is our upcoming Book Fair.


Mark your calendars as February 8th & 9th are Book Fair DaysFeb. 8th will focus on books for our Pre-K to Grade 3 students. February 9th books will be available for students from grade 4-8.


The Book Fair will be set up in the Lobby area and there will be enough books for each student to purchase 3 to 4 each. This is not a fund raiser, simply another way to put books in the hands of our young readers. The books have been shipped in from Scholastic in the USA and the collection includes books for all levels of readers within our school.


Please note that sales are USD cash only. Books will vary in price, but on average the price/book will be $7.99. Options for payment include sending funds with your child on the day of the sale or sending funds afterwards once the purchase is complete. Parents are welcome to accompany their child during the class’ scheduled time to assist with selection and payment, as a further option. Classroom teachers can share class visit times.


Finally, a tremendous thank you to Delana Chowdhary for leading out on this wonderful project.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
