Winter Clothing Drive, Snack Program, and other school news!

Davisville P.S. and the Works-in-Progress Eco arts collective are co-hosting a Winter Clothing and Skates & Helmets drive from November 14th to December 12th.

The Drive will ultimately benefit a TDSB school with a population in need of winter clothes, and the skates will be available to Davisville families from December 12th until our Skate Night in February.

We will also be hosting two “Sort and Swap” events:

  • You can donate and sort clothes and if you find something you need you can fill a bag as a thank you for helping to swap, or
  • If you want to drop by and shop, you can fill a bag for $5
  • The first event will be held at Hodgson M.S. (282 Davisville Ave.) on December 5th from 6:30-9pm (the evening of our next School Council meeting)
  • The second event will be held at Davisville P.S. (529 Vaughan Rd.) from 6-8:30pm

We also want to give a big shout out and thank you to our Snack Program volunteers, who ensure that our students are fed delicious and healthy snacks everyday of the school week – be sure to check out the amazing snack photos! If you are interested in volunteering for our Snack Program on any day of the week, please contact davisvillesnackprogram@gmail.com.

Davisville Parent Social and Silent Auction this Friday, November 8th!

We look forward to seeing you at our first Davisville Parent Social this Friday, November 8th! The event will be held at 240 Manor Road E., and doors open at 8pm.

You can still purchase tickets today through School Cash Online.

Province wide-budget cuts have impacted our Davisville school budget. The funds would have gone toward school trips, transportation to sporting events and in-class programs such as Scientist in the Classroom. To help offset these cuts, the Parent Social will include a fundraising component – a fantastic Silent Auction!

If you are not able to attend the Parent Social on Friday, you can still support our school by placing an Absentee Bid on your favourite Silent Auction items! Featured items include Restaurant Gift Certificates, fabulous Educator Experiences, Gift Baskets, a brand new iPhone XS, and so much more. For more information on how to place an Absentee bid, please contact davisvillefundraising@gmail.com.

Thank you for supporting our school!

Parent volunteers needed to help out at our school library!

Our Davisville school library is a very popular destination for our students! Our very dedicated School Librarian and our School Council Library Coordinator are looking for some extra hands to help shelve books – we are looking to assemble a team to come in regularly, e.g., once a month, to help out. Take a look this 14 min. video to see what it takes to shelve books at the library.

The shelving of books will get done much more quickly with more hands! If you’re able to help out at the library, please contact our Library Coordinator at davisvilleschoolcouncil@gmail.com (include “Attn: Library Coordinator” in the email subject heading).
