Welcome to Donalda School
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone back from summer holidays.  As I reflected on my years of teaching, I have never enjoyed the first week as much as I enjoyed the start up this year.

This year we are making a major transition to Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education (GAfE). By adopting this more affordable technology, Donalda School is able to have one Chromebook for each student in grades 3 - 9 . The staff is very excited to see how this access to technology will help engage and equip learners at this school. I encourage all parents to sit down with their children and have them show you the whole range of products that these students have learned to use such as Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets and Classroom. We are excited to be offering Multimedia course for all students from Gr. 1 -9. This course will help equip students with the GAfE products as well as begin to build students skills in areas such as video editing, computer programming and digital photography. These skills will help students as they build meaningful projects in their other classes.

During the opening assembly, we divided the school up into multi-graded tribes and had a Donalda School 2014/2015 trivia contest. On the first Friday of the month, we will be hosting a Fun Friday where we will have a theme and the tribes will compete. Some of the most original team names are the Rainbow Oogachuckers and Legitness.

Classes begin at 8:50 am and we ask that students do not arrive before 8:30 am. If you need to drop off your child earlier, please contact me and we can make arrangements.

School Council will having their opening meeting on September 23 at 7:00 pm. We really appreciate everything that this group does (the pancakes were delicious!) and they are always looking for more people to help with the work.

Please pay your school fees $60 as soon as possible

If you have any questions, please do not hesistate to ask. Let's have an incredible school year!
