Week at a Glance Oct 28 – Nov 1

Dear DG Families,

Diwali Assembly

We will be having a Diwali Assembly on Tuesday, October 29th at 9:00 a.m. Parents are welcome to attend.  A big thank you to Mme Jassal, Ms. Arjun, our school staff, and the DG community for helping organize this assembly.

Parents joining us for the assembly are welcome to come in directly from the gym doors.


Halloween Parade

With Halloween coming up this Thursday, please be reminded of our Halloween Parade and costume guidelines.

Halloween Costume Parade and Costume Guidelines Our Costume Parade will be at 9:00am on Halloween (Thursday, Oct 31). Students are encouraged to come to school dressed in their Halloween Costume. They will have a chance to be part of the parade that goes throughout the school.  Students will want to bring an extra set of clothes for after the parade. Parents are welcome to attend our parade and take pictures from our school hallways.   Please be reminded that costumes:

  • should not be too scary
  • should be age appropriate
  • that promote illegal activities, drugs/alcohol, or could be offensive or perpetuate a stereotype of someone’s culture, gender, heritage, or religion are not ok for school
  • must be safe & comfortable.  Students must be able to sit, walk, breathe, see and hear.  Anything that limits vision or restricts movement can lead to falling & other injuries. That’s no fun on Halloween! (students may wear masks during the parade, though)
  • must be in line with our dress guidelines (students are sufficiently covered and dressed for the weather)


  • toy weapons should be kept at home
  • not all students like to dress up (and that’s ok, too!)

Students will be given the opportunity and are encouraged to change out of their costumes after the parade.  This will ensure that costumes are kept safe and intact for trick or treating that evening.

Halloween candy

We know that after Halloween, many of our students will have lots of candies.  We would appreciate it if you can help us by limiting the number of candies that are being packed for school.

School Photo Retakes

Individual photo retakes will take place on Friday, November 1st in the morning.  If your child was absent or needs a photo retake, please let your child’s teacher know through a message in the planner or by email.  This will help us remember and know who needs a retake.

Schedules and Forms

We know how busy everyone is and how difficult it can be to find forms sent from school.  Please see the links provided so you know where to find forms.

Schedules (volleyball/crossing guard) can be found here.  NEW crossing guard schedules to the end of November has been added.
