The Dophin Dish DANCE-A-THON:
Our students and teachers are excited for the upcoming Dance-a-Thon on Friday, December 2nd!
We have just a few reminders:

If you still want to make a pledge to this event after you have returned your form, you may do so at until December 9th. If you would like a tax receipt for your donations, please go to our school website. The information and form is posted under “Forms and Files”. Please print the form, complete it, and return it to Mrs Murray. A tax receipt will be issued.
2. The Cosmic store will remain open on Cashless until Midnight November 29th. Go to to make your purchase. If you don’t have a chance to purchase your cosmic store items in advance, remember your loonies and toonies on Friday, December 2nd. We will have a cosmic store open at the event. 
3. Volunteers are always welcome! Please come help us celebrate our annual Dance-a-thon on Friday, December 2nd. There are many volunteer opportunities available including helping with the cosmic store, handing out raffle prizes, supervising the kids or helping behind the scenes with some administrative work.

We thank you in advance for your participation and support!

Students who do not wish to participate in the Dance will have a supervised area where they can do alternate activities.

Pilgrim Wood Bullying Prevention & Awareness Week:
Next Week is Bullying Prevention & Awareness Week, the week of 21st – 25th. There will be number of activities happening in each class during the week. Student Parliament has decided to focus on Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s quote  “When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.” They will be helping classes with this message with our school focus for the month “Be Nice”.

As a school wide focus, we will be wearing colours of the rainbow each day. 
Feel free to wear blue on Friday even if you’re at home for the PA day. Show your awareness and school spirit by wearing these colours. 

Progress Reports:
Progress Reports for grades 1-8 students are coming home on Monday November 21st with your child. You should have received a parent/teacher interview request from your child’s teacher. If you have not scheduled an interview yet, please call your child’s teacher, or the main office, we will be happy to arrange the interview. Parents of FDK students will be invited for observations by your child’s teacher. 

Spirit Wear:
Just in time for the winter break, we have some great items up on Cashless for you to purchase for your child or yourself! Show your Dolphin pride with a cozy hoodie or hit the local rinks in your very own personalized Dolphins jersey! There is something for everyone. Orders placed by December 4th will be delivered to the school the last week before the winter break. Thank you for your support. 

Lunch Programs:
This is a reminder that our next month of pita (December) is up on Cashless, as well as Term 2 of milk and pizza. Please ensure you process your payment in Cashless before the deadlines so your child doesn't miss out on these delicious opportunities!
