Back to School: September 4, 2012

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over, with just one week left.  The new school year begins next Tuesday, September 4, at 8:40 a.m. To help alleviate some first-day jitters (mostly for the parents), here is a description of what to expect on the first day:

  • Students will then gather on the playground to find their teachers. Teachers will have large signs with names and grade levels throughout the school yard.  Staff will be available to provide assistance and directions.
  • Bussed students will be met by teachers and support staff and will be brought to their assigned waiting areas.
  • Students and parents will say their farewells on the playground before being escorted to their classrooms with their homeroom teachers.

School Starts September 6, 2011

The last week of Summer is here. After the Labour Day long weekend, it’s back to school!

The first day of school at Davisville / MTSD for the 2011-2012 school year is Tuesday September 6, 2011. If you’re wondering what to do on day one of school, our principal, Tricia Boyce, has provided the following notes:

For Kindergarten students only:

  • Kindergarten students in the French Immersion program will meet their teachers on the West Kindergarten playground. This playground is at the front of the school, facing Millwood Road. The entry to the playground is to the right of the main school doors. (In other words, before you get to the main school doors if you’re coming from Yonge Street).
  • Kindergarten students in the English program will meet their teachers on the East Kindergarten playground. This playground is also at the front of the school, facing Millwood Road. The entry to the playground is just left of the main school doors.

For students in Grades 1 through 8:

  • Students in Grade 1 through 8 will meet on the playground
  • Class lists will be posted on the back central doors (Exit 4). These doors connect to the playground.
  • Students who are bussed to the school will be met at their bus by teachers and support staff and brought to their assigned waiting areas
  • When the school bell rings, at 8:40 AM, students will be escorted to the gym for a brief “Welcome Back” assembly. At the assembly, students will be grouped into classes and taken to their classes by their homeroom teachers.
