Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Did you know that Dorothy Lynas has a few snow angels? It’s a big job clearing the snow around the school and we have a dedicated and helpful group of parents who shoveled the pathways last night! Thank you so very much Eliza and Mack.

The PAC has purchased some shovels and if you have a few minutes before pick-up or after school we would love your help. As we are expecting more snow in the forecast, we know we will need more snow angles. Remember many hands make light work.

Movie Night: Deadline for pre-orders is Tuesday!

Friday January 25th is Dorothy Lynas Movie Night!

Get your pizza, popcorn and treats!  DL Family Movie Night will take place on Friday Jan 25th. This year we are pleased to invite both our English and French classes to share in one night together!

Order and pre-pay for your pizza, popcorn, beverages and treats online via www.munchalunch.com.  Go to the Fundraising tab and order away!   This year bigger groups can take advantage of ordering a whole pizza along with combo treat packs.  The site is open for orders until Tuesday January 22nd only!  

Put on your onsies, bring your blankets and stuffies and we will see you Friday Jan 25th – gym doors open at 5:30 with the movie starting promptly at 6:30 pm.  Come early to get your spot!  The movie will be announced on the night.  This is a fundraiser for the grade 7 classes.

Get Involved!

Did you know that when you get involved in your child’s school, they are more likely to do well in school? Joining in with school activities has so many benefits. Your child gets to see how much you value their school, you model community involvement, you learn new things and meet new people, and the school and students benefit from your involvement. We have two great ways to get involved this month!

Our first PAC meeting of 2019 will be coming on on Monday, January 21 from 7:00-8:00 pm in the multipurpose room. Come meet our new principal and vice-principal, get an update on school events and programs, and meet some follow parents. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend. We’d love to see you there!

We would also love to see you for Family Movie Night on Friday January 25th. Get your pizza, popcorn and treats!  This year we are pleased to invite both our English and French classes to share in one night together! Starting Monday Jan 14th order and pre-pay for your pizza, popcorn, beverages and treats online via www.munchalunch.com.  Go to the Fundraising tab and order away!   This year bigger groups can take advantage of ordering a whole pizza.  The site is open for orders from Jan 14 – Tuesday Jan 22nd only!  

Put on your onsies, bring your blankets and stuffies and we will see you Friday Jan 25th – gym doors open at 5:30 with the movie starting promptly at 6:30 pm.  Come early to get your spot!  The movie will be announced on the night.  This is a fundraiser for the grade 7 classes.

Call your friends and come on out to one or both of these great events. A strong parent school partnership benefits all of our students.

The Place to be on Monday Night!

Everyone’s talking about the happening place to be on Monday. Will we see you there?

Please join us in the Dorothy Lynas Multipurpose room for our second PAC meeting of the year. The meeting starts at 7:00 and runs until 8:00. There will be snacks and lots of great information to digest.

Come hear about our financial plans and how the money we raise goes to support your child. Our Principal, Mrs. Todd, will be sharing the school’s goals and plans for reaching those goals. You’ll get a sneak peek at this year’s Seycove auction logo and theme, and hear about our upcoming plans for after school programs. We’d love to get your input and see some new faces at our meeting. Bring a friend and come on out!
