Congratulations to Dante's African Heritage Month
Committee for organizing and executing another successful Urban Culture Day.
All present had a positive and fun filled experience. On behalf of the
committee, thank you to Ms Cifelli and all the Dante teachers and staff members
for their help and support yesterday evening--and also we must give a shout out
to the Dante students in attendance for behaving in a way that reflects
positively on our community.
On Wednesday February 27th during period 4, Dante is
pleased to have Morgan Campbell an award-winning sports writer who will share
with you about the game behind the game. As a sports reporter for the Toronto
Star he has covered everything from the football to basketball and boxing to
UFC. If you want to know more about Journalism or sports then make sure you put
your name on the sign-up sheet outside the library.
Unfortunately our boys basketball teams were unable to
make it through to the semi-finals and so the season has come to an end. All is
not lost though, because through sports we have watched these players grow
socially, mentally and of course physically.
On behalf of the teams and coaches we would like to thank
you for your support.
Special mention goes to:
Physical Education department for executing the gym
set-up before each game
Lucy Iantosca for managing the concession stand at each
Sherfieldann John, an occasional teacher who traveled
from her daily assignments to Dante to assist with coaching
The many staff members that were able to assist with
supervision (Sorry this list is too long to list… however this is a good
Custodial staff for their help with post-game clean up
Administration for seeing to logistics and co-ordinating
Lou for his guidance and continued support with the many
decisions having to be made throughout the season
Congratulations to Ms. Dimza's dance students that participated in the Dance Festival @ Cardinal Carter. It was a day filled with excitement where dancers from 11 high schools shared their passion for dance. Thank you again for an amazing and truly mesmerizing performance!
On behalf of teachers moderators and students of Me-to-We, we would like to thank the Dante community for supporting the Love Button Campaign. A special thank you to Mr. Spedaliere!!! Your contribution will benefit a village in Ecuador. Since the buttons were a great success you will have one last chance to purchase them in the cafeteria during the lunches.
Thank you for being the Change Dante!!
A huge congratulations goes out to the Junior Girls Volleyball Team. They finished the regular season in the top 7 of a 24 team league. Last night they played in their quarter final match against St. Joe's Wellesley. The girls were in the game, and gave St. Joe's a fair challenge. Unfortunately, we lost in the third set. Congratulations to all the girls for a fun and exciting season. One final note: there will be a team meeting Tuesday February 19th after school. Please bring your jersey and your $50 deposit will be returned at that time.
The Seniors played a tremendous game, battling back from a 24 point deficit to bring the score within just 3 points, but unfortunately there wasn't enough time to overtake Michael Power.
The Junior boys basketball team also had a tough match-up with them playing against Bishop Allen. The last time these two teams met Bishop Allen won by 3... and our boys were determined not to let this happen again.
The Junior boys basketball team were down by 7 points when they decided that the season was not going to end... Our Dante Monarchs were able to dominate the 4th quarter and win yet another game!
A special thank you to all the chefs and so us chefs who helped make Shrove Tuesday a special occassion. Thank you to Ms. Cifelli, Ms. Figliomeni, Ms. Ciccone, Ms. Saunders, Mr. Quaglia, Ms. Ball, Ms. Quagliozzi and to our amazing students, Angelo, John, Michael, Kevin, Daniella P and Daniellas.
We have a practice today after school in the main gym at Dante. A reminder that our playoff game is on Wednesday Feb 13 at St. Joseph's. See Ms. Pescador, Ms. Scaffidi-Saggio if you can't make practice tonight.
Last night the Junior Boys Basketball team went over to Marshall McLuhan to play a hard fought game. There were times when we were winning by a few points and times when we were down by a few points. What makes these games so terrible is when a team loses by 1 point......
Thankfully our Dante boys were the winners, beating Marshall 50 to 49! Goooo Dante!!!!
