days.

A spirit day is when there is a theme and all the stu­dents can dress up.

The week be­fore Christmas, we had Santa or elf hat day, jer­sey day and ugly sweater day.

One of the most pop­u­lar spirit days was PJ day. Al­most all of the stu­dents dressed up in their PJs for our last day of school be­fore the Christmas break.

On Dec. 21 there was a Christmas con­cert. The per­for­mances were amaz­ing. We had per­for­mances by Mrs. Dun­can’s JK/SK class, Mrs. Madill’s SK/1 class, Ms. Shaw’s 1/2 class, Mrs. Wy­ber’s 1/2 class, Ms. Hutchin­son’s Grade 2 class, Mrs. Hard­man’s Grade 4 class, Ms. White­lock’s 6/7 class and Mr. Per­reault’s Grade 7/8 class. Some of the amaz­ing per­for­mances were a lip sync bat­tle be­tween the Grade 7 and 8 girls, skits and songs. The band put a lot of prac­tice in and it turned out great!

De­spite all the snow days, Mr. Koshan’s 7/8 class didn’t let those stop them from trav­el­ling to the Out­door Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre. Brav­ing the snow, they stayed for two nights and three days and en­joyed lots of fun out­door ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Grade 8 classes sold poin­set­tias to raise money for their trip to Ot­tawa. We are sure it will be a very ed­u­ca­tional trip! They will be hav­ing more fundrais­ers in the New Year.

The PSDS boys’ and girls’ vol­ley­ball teams are host­ing the Blue­wa­ter North­west Re­gional Tour­na­ment on Jan. 19. Both teams are busy prac­tic­ing for this event. The boys had an ex­hi­bi­tion game against Ama­bel-Sauble Com­mu­nity School in Sauble Beach. The girls took part in a tour­na­ment at Owen Sound Dis­trict Sec­ondary School on Dec. 3 and they also trav­elled to North­port Ele­men­tary School in Port El­gin for an ex­hi­bi­tion match on Dec. 13. They played amaz­ing and showed great team spirit.

The New Year will be very ex­cit­ing at PSDS and we are all look­ing for­ward to it. Stay tuned for more Ju­nior Phoenix Files. Happy New Year from ev­ery­one at PSDS.
