Please Donate New and Gently Used Household Items
On October 8, a rooming house on Gladstone Avenue, south of College, was gutted by fire. While nobody was seriously injured, residents lost their home and all their possessions. Dewson families are invited to help them reestablish themselves by passing on any gently used or new household items – anything from pots and pans to bed linens, lamps, or even furniture. You can drop things off at the Parent Lounge next to the school office before end of school year. A Dewson parent will facilitate passing on the items to community organizations which are in touch with the survivors. Depending on the response we may continue the collection in the first week back at school.
The students of Areas 20, 21 and 22 have been very busy making papier mache puppet figures with visiting artist Donnely Smallwood. They would like to share their amazing character creations with you before they take them home.
Have a look at the display case by the front entrance:
Mon. Dec. 9 to Wed. Dec.11 – Area 20 Ms. Droney’s class
Thurs. Dec.12 to Mon. Dec.16 – Area 21 Ms. Welsh’s class
Tues. Dec.17 to Thurs. Dec.19 – Area 22 Mr. Savage’s / Ms. Andrew’s class
The photos below show the students in Area 20 applying finishing touches; what beautiful concentration.
We look forward to Donnely continuing her program with Areas 23, 24 and 35 in the new year.
Thank you Donnely for the great program and for displaying it for all to enjoy!
