Nov 3rd is “Take Our Kids to Work Day”

On Wednesday November 3, 2010, over 200,000 grade 9  students across Canada will spend the day at work, job shadowing a parent, relative, friend or volunteer host.

For more information, check out this "Take Our Kids to Work Day" brochure.

What will students get out of the program?
• Develop an appreciation for the importance of staying in school and getting a high school diploma and pursuing post-secondary studies.
• Gain exposure to the skills required in today’s workplaces.
• Develop an appreciation for their parents’ roles in making a living and supporting their families.
• Begin career discussions with adults about the work they do.
• Gain a better understanding of the complexity of career choices and the benefi ts of early exploration.
• Explore career options in practical ways.

What will parents get out of the program?
• Participate in a shared experience with your child.
• Begin career discussions and dialogue based on actual experiences.
• Enrich the experience for your child by providing opportunities to talk before, during and after the visit.

Where can students go for the day?
Where possible, parents invite their own child to spend a day on the job. If you are unable to host your own child, there are still ways for your child to participate. Here are some suggestions:
• Ask a relative, neighbour or family friend to host your child at his/her workplace.
• Contact the school, speak with the principal, career studies or co-op teacher, ask if they can assist you with finding a suitable placement.
• Ask the parent of another grade 9 student who is participating if your child could join him/her for the day.
• Contact local businesses. Ask if they are hosting students for Take Our Kids to Work™. Inquire if someone within their organization would be willing to host your child providing you make the necessary transportation arrangements.

DHS School Council 2010-2011

Stay involved in your child’s school experiences even when they’ve reached that milestone of secondary school!!

The School Council at Dryden High would like to invite you to join us as we promote the best educational experience for our children. As part of the School Council, members stay informed and up to date on happenings and opportunities for our students. We meet the last Tuesday of each month in the DHS library from 7:00-8:30 pm. Next meeting dates are: October 26, November 30, February 22, April 26 and May 31.

Our Council is mandated the same as elementary level School Councils. We consist of a majority of parents, and are joined by community members and staff members. One major difference between secondary and elementary level councils is that we do not participate in fundraising! Fundraising at DHS is performed by student booster clubs and sports clubs as the need arises.

We welcome your involvement. For more information visit the School Council page on our website (click here) or contact Kathy McConnachie, Principal at (807) 223-2316.

Eagles Football vs. West Kildonan

The Eagles fell to 1-5 on the season after a 32-0 loss to the West Kildonan Wolverines at CanadInns Stadium yesterday.

The team came out flat and began with poor field position which led to an early safety being surrendered and a 2-0 lead for West K. The Wolverines followed that up with a TD and convert and a second safety before the quarter was out (11-0). In the second quarter the Eagles showed signs of life and moved the ball more consistently behind the strong running of Ryan Hansson. Hansson led the team with 63 yards rushing on 7 carries. The half ended on a fake field goal attempt which fell incomplete to the turf.

In  the second half the hosts again came out strong and added to their lead. With a young squad, one already eliminated from the playoffs, the coaching staff chose to utilize everyone on the bench for substantial minutes as the score widened. While the team had flashes of success, mistakes sabotaged further scoring drives. In  the end, Andrew Langlais, 2 time WHSFL player of the week in 2010, had another strong defensive game with 10 tackles. Caine Benham recorded 5 tackles and a QB sack and Mike Lampshire chipped in with 5 tackles. On offence, Josh Reid carried the ball 5 times for 31 yards and caught another pass for 10 more.

The team finishes their season next Friday against the playoff bound East Kildonan Reivers. The game will mark the end of the football careers of 10 players and the goal is to commemorate their efforts with a small ceremony and strong effort. The team has a lot of talent returning for 2011 and looks to use the game as a chance to continue the development of the young players and reinforce the lessons of commitment to the team and strength of will.
