October At A Glance – Jean Little

Posted October 3, 2022

Hello Dragon Families,

October already!

Huge congratulations are in order as we raised $1573.00 for the Terry Fox Foundation this year, way to go Dragons.


The Upper Grand District School Board has launched the board-wide “UGDSB Counts Student Census.” The goal of the census is for the school board to learn more about the diversity of students in our communities and make positive change to support students.

Survey closes October 9, 2022.

The census is open to all students in Kindergarten to Grade 12. For elementary students, an email will be sent to parents/guardians so that parents can complete the census with or on behalf of their child. If you did not receive one or can not find it, please email [email protected] for another link.

You can learn all about the census at www.ugdsb.ca/census.

Any questions can be emailed to [email protected]

Please see the important dates below:

These photos will be shown throughout the two-minute silence, as a reminder of their service to our country. All photos should be submitted by October 17. Thanks so much!
