Hi everyone - Just a reminder for students/families to help support our very impromptu fundraiser for the Petitcodiac Regional School tomorrow. Students will be able to wear a hat with a donation of their choice with all proceeds going towards the purchase of books lost in the school flood January 4th.
In addition PRS staff contacted me Friday and are so overwhelmed with our offer to help that they are dedicating a page out of their year book to the flood and what Devon did in reaching out to them... An honour for certain.
More on the story here from CBC News.
Hi everyone, this is a special request for our school community to help out Petitcodiac Regional School which has experienced a disaster almost identical to ours having lost several classrooms and over 1100 books. You may recall that on January 1st, 2015 the DMS library was destroyed due to a burst, frozen sprinkler pipe. In the aftermath we were the recipient of generous support from our community. You can read about it here. You can read about the Petitcodiac School situation here.
In order to help out, we are holding a special Hat Day on Monday, January 15th where staff and students can wear their hats for a donation of their choice. Normally we would charge a $1 to wear a hat but on this occasion only we are leaving it up to families as to what you may think would be an appropriate contribution. Let's join together help out our friends in Petitcodiac!
Hi everyone, on behalf of the staff at Devon Middle we would like to extend everyone in our community a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season. Classes will be dismissing today at 12:05pm with busses delivering all bus students home at that time.
Thank you Fredericton Community Foundation! Your generous $5,000 grant purchased 10 new Yamaha clarinets as part of our 'Instruments for Change' campaign. Your kind gesture has moved a community, contributed to increased student self esteem, and inspired more giving. On behalf of the DMS Band, Director, volunteers and the school we thank you!
Over the past several years Devon Middle School has offered the Devon All-Star program which has rewarded students for being good, all-round community members. Every month deserving students were issued DMS All-Star letters from the school’s administration followed by periodic celebrations with our all-star winners. Since early in the Fall we have felt it was time to change our focus in how we recognize student citizenship.
After many discussions and collaboration we are releasing the new, monthly Wildcat Award adapted from Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. Every month as part of our PDCP curriculum, teachers will be focusing on one of the seven habits, while at the whole school level we will be reinforcing them with our students. At the end of the month chosen students will receive a Wildcat certificate showing that they have met the standard for one of the habits.
The 7 Habits and their months of focus are as follows:
December - Being Proactive
January - Begin with the End in Mind
February - Put First Things First
March - Think Win-Win
April - Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understand
May - Synergize
June - Sharpen the Saw
We look forward to this new initiative in recognizing the good things that our learners are doing!
Anglophone West School District - All Schools will be closed today due to the poor weather and road conditions.
