D.R. Hamilton School Me to We Program

D.R. Hamilton School Me to We Program


Since 2013 the Me to We Club at D.R. Hamilton School in Cross Lake has been actively creating positive change both locally and globally as part of the We Day movement. Interested students in grades 6 to 9 can join the club which has an emphasis on social justice and community service. 

IMG_20180322_1050424.jpgIn 2013 students started a recycling program in their catchment area that has expanded to include other schools in the community and a partnership with Arctic Beverages. Students have taken on fund-raising to build a school in another country as their global challenge, and they make a difference in so many different ways locally. Me to We members have fund-raised for and volunteered at local vet clinics, supported the school's breakfast program when funding was interrupted, and helped members of the community who have encountered challenging times. The list goes on to include many more acts of service. 

IMG_20180604_1345413.jpgStudents travel to We Day in Winnipeg each year as a celebration of their contributions. This year, the group was approached by the We Day production team for some pictures of their service projects. The D.R. Hamilton Me to We group may very well be spotlighted on the We Day stage! ​

National Indigenous Peoples Day - June 21

​National Indigenous Peoples Day 

June 21​


National Indigenous Peoples Day is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples. 

In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for National Aboriginal Day, now known as National Indigenous Peoples Day. For generations, many Indigenous peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.

Across Frontier School Division and in many of our communities, there are celebrations being held on both Thursday  June 21 and Saturday June 23. For more information

Brave the Shave Fundraising Success

Brave the Shave Fundraising Success


Frontier Collegiate’s Brave the Shave fundraiser celebrated another successful year! The school raised over $1,000 which they donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Many students and teachers supported this great cause and we would like to thank all of them for participating!

On Friday May 11th Frontier Collegiate held an assembly where students made both financial and hair donations. Ms. Glennis Valladares, the Advanced Cosmetology teacher, had six students provide head shaves and haircuts to students who donated $10.00 or more. Frontier Collegiate’s principal even participated by having Ms. Valladares tattoo him!

​Bill Taylor, teacher at Frontier Collegiate, led the initiative this year. Events like Brave the Shave show students how engaging initiatives can make a huge difference in raising support for those in need of our help.


Great job, Frontier Collegiate!​
