- Students are to arrive tonight at 6:30pm and meet their class in their assigned Areas (Refer back to this letter that was sent home for your child’s class assignment)

-Parents/ guardians are invited to head to the gym and take their seats, the students can go join their classmates for 6:30pm

-Students who are in choir are encouraged to wear dark pants and a plain white shirt

-The parents council is running a bake sale at the event

-Arrive early as the gym is going to fill up very quickly

-Please pick up your child from their assigned Area after the concert

A huge thank you to Mr. Greene for organizing this amazing event! See you tonight.

Parent Volunteers needed

Dewson is in need of some parent volunteers to help set up some new physical activity equipment.

Are you the kind of person who can buy a piece of IKEA furniture and be able to use it by the end of the night?? If so, then we could use your help to put together some new soccer nets!

Are you the kind of person who can blow up a balloon without making it pop?? Then we could use your help in inflating some new soccer, footballs and basketballs!

If interested please contact the Dewson office as soon as possible at


Jr. Concert

There will be performances by the Junior, Chamber Choirs, Strings, Guitar, Steel Pans and Ukulele. Students and families of grades 4, 5, and 6 students are invited to attend.
There’ll also be a BAKE SALE. But we need your baked goods (fruit and box drinks welcome too). You don’t need to be a parent/guardian of a junior student to bake. Please bring your NUT-FREE baked goods to the office sometime between the beginning of school and the concert.

One more volunteer is needed to help at the bake sale table. Could that be you? It’s easy. It’s fun. Once again, you don’t need to be a parent of a junior student to help out. Let us know if you can help by emailing Angie (

Calling all Decorators and Designers!!

Are you an experienced interior Designer or Decorator?  If so Dewson needs your expertise!

Please contact Dewson if you would be interested in helping bring some new life  and energy to the inside of our building.

Dewson Dialogue

We have had one reported case of Fifth disease this past week at Dewson.  Please ensure if your child is diagnosed with this contact the office.

Conservation Authorities are reminding residents of dangers that exist near streams, rivers, ponds and lakes around this time of year due to snow melting.  We are reminding people to keep family and pets away from the edge of all waterways during this time.

Have  a wonderful and restful March Break!!
