Dear DG Families,
Thank you to all our families that came to join us for our Remembrance Day Assembly. As well, thank you to Ryan D and Penny H for representing our school at the North Delta Remembrance Day Ceremony on Monday.
The Legion has a contest out for students under the categories of poster, essay, poetry, or video. Deadline for the contest is Nov 15th. Please see the link if your child is interested. https://www.legionbcyukon.ca/what-we-do/youth-contests
Volleyball season is coming to an end this year! The grade 7 volleyball players will be heading to Sands on Monday, Nov 18 for a wrap-up volleyball tournament. Thank you to all our parents for volunteering to help drive our students to games and for watching the games at DG! As well, thank you to our teachers who volunteered their time to coach and support volleyball; Ms. Leveque, Mrs. Willcox, M Lawlwer, Mme Santos, Mme Niemi.
CSL Report Cards
Please make sure you can access Parent Connect. Starting this year, all report cards will be online and viewable on Parent Connect! https://cimsweb.deltasd.bc.ca/schoolconnect/parentsignone.aspx
We understand there are sometimes extenuating circumstances. As such, any parents who require a printed copy of their child’s report card are asked to please send a note or email to the teacher by Monday, December 2nd.
Cold and Flu Season
With the cold and flu season here, please keep children home when they are sick. Not only does this help children to rest and recover, it may also help to prevent the spread of illness to others. A reminder to please call our absentee line at 604-581-8536 to let us know if your child will be absent.
Another reminder to everyone that we do have members of our school community with allergies to fish/seafood, nuts and onions. In order to help keep the learning environment safe for all, please do not send these foods to school.
Lost and Found
We have a new clothesline set up to hang our lost and found clothing. Please see what is on our clothesline. If it looks familiar to you, please come in to the school to check it out. The lost and found clothesline is in the hallway of the gym. We will also send out pictures through twitter so you can see what is on our clothesline.

Just another reminder that if you are purchasing items from the Cobs Breads on 72nd Avenue and 120th Street, please let them know that you are from Devon Gardens Elementary. Our school is part of the Cobs Dough Raiser program, and a portion of the sales go towards supporting our PAC’s fundraising efforts.
