Parent Engagement

Durham District School Board (DDSB) recognizes the importance of partnerships with parents and guardians in creating positive learning environments. The School Community Council (SCC) is an advisory body that makes recommendations to the Principal and school board to further student achievement and well-being. Every school in the DDSB has an SCC. The SCC is made up of parents, school staff and community members and should represent the diversity of the school community.

Information for our school dance-a-thon will be going home soon.  We will be hosting the dance-a-thon on Thursday, April 9th in our school gym.  This is a great opportunity for our students to enjoy school wide DPA as well as buy some treats to support our SCC.  Looking forward to a great Spring dance-a-thon.
