Donalda Diary: Donalda’s boys basketball earn their first win

Students at Donalda School also took in the movie Wonder during Pink Shirt Day

Donalda Diary

The Donalda boys basketball team hit a new milestone with its first win of the season.

It came against New Norway (31-21), a team of mostly older boys. “This victory is a testament to the hard work they have put in all season. They have a great future!” says coach Mr. Siemens.

Pink Shirt Day, which is an event promoting tolerance and putting an end to bullying, was Feb. 28th. To instil these very important principles at the Donalda School, Mr. Siemens allocated time for students to attend the movie Wonder, a film carrying a strong message that would be recommended for all.

On March 21st get involved with your children’s education by attending the Donalda School’s parent teacher interviews. Take this time to tackle homework with your family, as spring break starts March 23rd and ends April 3rd.

The Sharon Lutheran Church is proud to host a youth group meeting March 18th at noon. Grades 5 and up are welcome to attend. There will be a marshmallow and wiener roast, trivia game, prizes, and a chance to learn a great lesson from the Book of Daniel.

Birthday wishes for this week go out to Janelle Jaksitz, Carol Montgomery, Joseph Boxma, Scott Massey, Shauna Sideritsch, Tobias Banziger, Kaden Erickson, Lorne Gudlaugson, Russell Hellekson, Wade Montgomery, Levi Erickson, Julie Hebbes, Mattea Siemens, Skylar Sutton, Chase Butterfield, Dustin Klatt, and Jac Vikse. We hope you all have a very Happy Birthday!
