Announcements ~ Wed. Nov 11/19

Dear Santa, please give us students a parking pass for The Centre so we stop getting ticketed. Sincerely, students who drive. Do you have a funny request for Santa to bring something to help out DHS students and staff? Write a letter to Santa and drop it off at the main office, it may even be read by the big guy himself at the last day assembly.
The second season court sports tipped off yesterday in Sioux Lookout. Both volleyball teams won, the senior girls in 2 sets while the juniors took three. In basketball the junior got 13 points from Carver Trist in a 40-38 victory, while Koen Taylors 16 points were not enough as the boys fell to the warriors. Dryden hosts next Thursday.
Good luck to the boys & girls hockey teams today as they travel north to Sioux Lookout for league action. You can catch the boys at home this Sunday at 2pm when The Red Lake Rams make their only trip to Dryden.
If any students require volunteer hours, The junior girls’ volleyball team requires score keepers for their tournament this weekend. Sign up in the main office or see Ms. Kirouac.
