White Pine Readers
The White Pine Reading Group runs December to April of each school year. Ontario Library Association picks ten new fiction books written by Canadian Authors and asks that students across Ontario read the books and vote for their favourite one in April. If you like to read, and are a fan of awesome books, see Mrs. Storgard in the Library for more details.
The team-sport for environmental smarts.
The Ontario Envirothon is an opportunity to take what you’ve learned in books and in the classroom out there—under the sky, in the forest, at the lake—and using your smarts and your senses along with like-minded peers, interact with nature directly.
The DHS team meets Tuesdays at 11:30 in room 107. As well we take part in many workshops outside the school to; farms, trap lines, parks, forest lands and Thunderbay.
Schools Building Schools
Schools Building Schools is a joint project consisting of Rotary Clubs in Dryden, Kenora and Sioux Lookout working with the Canadian Ripple Effect Committee. Also with sponsorship from CKDR, CJRL and the Best Western.
