DJ Stew and MC Calds would like to thank everyone who came out to sing and to watch the very first Karaoke Club lunchtime sing along!  We are figuring out a few things so it should be smoother sailing next time! A few things to note if you would like to sing or watch:

  • You MAY NOT video any part of the karaoke club even if it is your friend on the stage and they say it is ok.  NO VIDEOS PERIOD.
  • We encourage you to sing along but DON’T SCREAM at the top of your lungs as it is annoying and people can’t hear the singers.
  • In order to make sure you get to sing if you want to, we now have a sign up sheet outside Mrs. Stewart’s classroom #203 that you can put your name and the song you want to sing on a list.  If we can’t get you on stage that week, you will be higher up on the list the next week.
  • You can only sing appropriate songs.  Try to pick something the crowd will love!  
  • Big shout out to Mrs. Caldwell, Mrs. Stewart, Mrs. Turnbull, Ms. Johnson, and Mrs. Clarke for getting the party started!
  • Next karaoke club will be Friday the 26th and every Friday at lunch after that!



Come one … come all to the Dunsmuir Chess and Checkers Club.  Every Monday at Noon in the Chrome Lab.  No experience necessary … just the desire to have fun.


Sunday is the last day for cookie dough sales.  All envelopes must be in to the office Monday by lunch.

Late orders will not be accepted as we have to order the cookie dough.  Make sure you bring your envelopes on Monday!

Grand prizes will be announced later next week.


Just a reminder there is pizza for sale at $3 a slice.  Students line up outside the dance studio at nutrition break to purchase a slice.
