Help support our Davis Leadership Council’s holiday community initiative, “Backpacks For Shelters”! Backpacks purchased by the Elementary Teachers Federation are filled with gifts for children, women and men and distributed to our region’s crisis shelters. Grade seven classes will be fundraising for gifts to fill a girl’s backpack while grade eights will collect for a boy. Please help support the Backpack for Shelters program by encouraging your child to donate a toonie to his or her homeroom collection. Each class has been asked to brainstorm a list of items that will be purchased on their behalf. Your support is greatly appreciated!

The Waterloo Region District School Board is undertaking a system fiscal review to identify opportunities to reduce costs, implement operational efficiencies and optimize the allocation of resources to address the board’s budget pressures and support the Board’s long-term strategic plan. Among possible cost saving measures are adjustment of school start times to align bussing schedules. The school board is looking for community input on these proposed changes through collection of survey data. To have your voice heard please complete the survey that can be found on the following website: http://www.wrdsb.ca/bell-times-consultation/

Progress Report Cards are coming home on Monday November 4th. We do not have a PD Day dedicated to parent interviews for this report. Therefore, teachers will be arranging their own interviews. If you wish to have an interview with a teacher or teachers after you receive the progress report, then we will follow the procedures we have already established for interviews at any other time of the year. Simply call the school and speak with specific staff to request an interview. We will do our best to ensure that one takes place, but please be cognizant of the fact that, without the PD day available for seeing parents, personal schedules may not allow for some interviews to be conducted face to face. In these instances, a phone interview would be the most appropriate way to communicate. Thank you for your understanding regarding this change.
