April 15, 2018

Hope you are all enjoying a great weekend. We have a very busy week coming up, even by HDSMS standards so be sure to check out the information below. 

New Information To Share:


PAC Meeting: A reminder that this Wednesday is our PAC meeting at 6:30 pm in the Library. Hope you are able to join us.

HDSMS Presents Little Sisters and Marvelous Munsch: ‘Marvelous Munsch’ featuring a collection of Robert Munsch’s classic stories for the whole family adapted for the stage! The ensemble of grade 6 and 7 actors will perform: Angela’s Airplane, Mud Puddle, Murmel Murmel Murmel, Mortimer, and The Paper Bag Princess.

‘Little Sister’ follows a handful of students through a turbulent chapter of their lives. Tackling the issues of self-image, obsession, and eating disorders in teenaged girls, Little Sister tells the story of five teenagers – three girls and two boys – who are caught in the web of contradictory messages about how they should look, feel, and behave.

*Little Sister is intended for audiences of 13+ due to coarse language and mature subject matter
