In order to help us better understand our parent/guardian preferences for receiving information, an on-line survey has been created to gather input on ways to improve communication, streamline processes and reduce the use of paper within school communities. This initiative is in alignment with the continued work of engagement and communication within the Waterloo Region District School Board.
This survey can be accessed through a link called “WRDSB Communication Survey” found on the Waterloo Region District School Board website at:
The survey will open on May 15th and will close on June 5th. All parents/guardians of Waterloo Region District School Board students are requested to complete this short survey at their earliest convenience. Responses to the surveys are anonymous and confidential.
Thank you for helping us understand your preferences for receiving information.
Transportation details will be available on August 21, 2014. Parents and students will be able to login and view their transportation details for the next school year.
A direct mail out will also be sent in August to the families with special needs students that will be transported in September.

WGD Global Issues Group will be selling popcorn and water with proceeds supporting Free the Children and building a school for children in Nicaragua.
At William G. Davis, we offer a Nutrition for Learning Program for students that come to school without breakfast or lunch to sustain them an entire school day. Over 50 students at our school take part in this program each day.
Students coming to school hungry don’t perform well in the classroom, have difficulty concentrating, less alert and are often lethargic.
In an effort to raise funds for our program (and encourage Spring-like weather!), we are collaborating with Just Perennials to subsidize the cost of providing food to run our program. One gallon perennials will be sold for $8 each, 2 for $15, or 3 for $20. Cash payments are due with order.
Order Forms were sent home with students on Monday, April 28th.
Cash orders will also be taken at our Spring Concert on May 1.
