School Council Election

With the back to school (and back to work!) rush complete, now is a good time for all of us, as Davisville/MTSD parents, to take a moment to consider how we can involve ourselves in the life of the school this year. Your children and your school need your help.

School council elections and the first school council meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 27th, 6:45 – 8:00 PM

As our kids settle into their first week of the new school year, the important work done by parent volunteers also needs to begin. Parent volunteers are needed to organize events, help with fundraising, help with the flow of information within the school community and do many other things throughout the school year.

Our school council coordinates all of this volunteer work and we need new members to fill many of the positions this year. It has been said that “many hands make light work” and that is certainly the case with school council. Our parent community has been getting more and more active in recent years and we have a number of dedicated parents already getting involved this year. With your help, we can make this school year a great one for all of our kids.

There is one more reason that it is vital we have more parent involvement this year: at the end of May, the TDSB began a formal process intended to redevelop the Davisville school site. Parent and school community feedback is the first step in this process. This school year, important school redevelopment decisions will be made about what kind of school, playground and school neighbourhood we will have in the future.

Are you new to Davisville or MTSD this year? Please don’t let that stop you from getting involved! Our school can benefit from your experience and skills and we welcome your interest and contribution.

A note about the school council elections and a parent self-nomination form will be sent home with all students by Friday, September 9. It can also be downloaded here. Join us to help make this school year a great one for your child and the entire school community!
