A reminder that we are still participating in Campbell’s Labels for Education program. Campbell’s Labels for Education™ is a school support program whereby registered schools or institutions collect labels from Campbell products and redeem them for educational resources ranging from sports equipment and musical instruments to video equipment and computers. Our school has been registered for this program, and if you follow this link, you can check what products are eligible, http://www.labelsforeducation.ca/english/eligible_exp.asp
Please help support this initiative by our School Council and send in those labels!
Congratulations to our Intermediate Girls’ Volleyball team and Intermediate Boys’ Basketball team!

The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) is committed to supporting the mental health and well-being of all students. Consistent with that goal, the SCDSB provides consultation and counselling services on-site by both SCDSB employed registered social workers as well as approved community service agencies for students in both elementary and secondary schools.
Please contact the school principal if you would like additional information about the services available to support your child. A copy of the SCDSB’s PHIPA Statement is available on request through the school as well as posted on the SCDSB’s website (www.scdsb.on.ca).
If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Mink, SCDSB Mental Health Lead at [email protected] (705) 734-6363 ext. 11865.
One of the SCDSB goals is to “Lead in global, environmental and socially responsible citizenship”. We all want our children to develop a respect for our environment while showing responsibility and caring for the places we live and work in.
At WH Day ES we will be focusing on reducing our impact on the environment here at school. Over the next week or so, we will be replacing our classroom garbage pails with smaller garbage cans while introducing large recycling containers. These containers will be used for paper recycling, juice boxes, etc. Our school has recycling containers for cans and paper in our major hallways.
We ask that our families please use re-usable containers as much as possible when preparing snacks and lunches in order to reduce the amount of garbage our students create each day. Our goal is to move towards “boomerang”’ lunches by the end of this month. “Boomerang” lunch is the idea that everything students bring to school in their lunch bags, goes home. This is a common practice in most SCDSB schools and we feel our students and their families will understand the need to reduce the waste generated at school. Thank you for your support as we GO GREEN!
On Thursday February 6 the students from Mrs. Grantham/Mrs. Linton and Ms. Calder/ Mrs. Kemp classes participated in several winter team events to kick off the 2014 Olympic Games.
The next day, our grade 6,7 and 8 students were actively catching the excitement of the W H Day Mini Olympic Games and Olympic Day. Following the opening ceremonies 20 countries competed in the fun of 9 modified versions of the winter sports of the Olympic Games program including biathlon, bob sleigh. snow shoeing, curling, nordic skiing, hockey, tug of war, an obstacle course and an Olympic trivia game.
It was a whole lot of fun for everyone…as we prepare to cheer our Canadian Olympic team at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games. GO CANADA GO!!!
