Chess Club needs chess sets, DL Food Drive details and Traffic Alert!

chess-boardChess Club is up and running Wednesdays at Lunch for Gr 4 and up! We’ve had such a good turn out that we don’t have enough sets to go around.

DL Families, we would appreciate donations of gently used Chess sets you are no longer using at home. Feel free to leave them at the Office for The PAC or for Mme Lynn Gonzalez (Wang) who is sponsoring this program.

A huge thank you to Mme Gonzalez for generously giving her lunchtime to supervise our budding young Chess players. As a PAC we are so grateful to our DL Staff for the extra time they give to our students through numerous in-school clubs like Chess Club, Recycling Club and the Gr 7 Tech Team, as well as sports clubs such as Cross Country, Basketball and Volleyball to name just a few.

food-allergy-canada A week to go before our Allergy Friendly Food Drive starts Monday November 21st!

Your Class Reps will be emailing a message to each class this week about which day they will be participating in the Food Drive along with the allergen-free food item they are collecting for that day. Students will also be bringing home a printed sheet for reference at home which gives parents a good opportunity to review this initiative with your family and discuss the importance of what we are trying to achieve. All food collected will be donated to the Harvest Project, a community-based urban relief organization that provides vital support for families on the North Shore.

Traffic ConesThe DL November Newsletter has an important message for all DL Families with respect to new traffic signage.

The days are getting shorter, darker and wetter making for an even more challenging drop off/pick up than usual. Parents – we need you to be aware of rules you may not even realize you are breaking.

Please take some time to review this New Traffic Signage with all members of the family. When we share it with our kids, they go on high alert and will remind us of the errors that we are making!

Once you’ve taken the time to read the attached, we welcome a note at with READ IT! in the subject line. Let’s try and get 100% participation (all 346 subscribers to our PAC website!) in this effort to be more responsible with our traffic patterns. Thank you.
