Welcome to Donview Online, the web home of Donview Middle Health and Wellness Academy. This website has been designed for students, parents, caregivers, staff, and anyone else who is interested in all the things happening at our school. We hope you find the site easy to navigate, and the information up-to-date.
We are excited to start September! We are thrilled to finally share our newly updated website too! School starts on Tuesday September 5th. Students should arrive after 8:45 am. At 8:55 am the bell will ring. Grade 6 students and parents should go to the cafeteria (directly in front of the main doors). Grade 7 and 8 students should proceed to the gymnasium to find out what class they are in and meet their teachers.
There are lots of exciting things planned for this year. Stay tuned to our website and social media channels to keep up to date on everything going on! Parents/Guardians, please make sure you sign up for our email list on the forms that are going home, as we will be sending regular email updates and we want to ensure that you are kept informed!

Staff Changes & New Staff
We are thrilled to welcome several new individuals who have joined our staff this year. Besides our new Principal Mr. D. Ehrlich, we are happy to welcome Mr. M. Fuh who is our new Guidance Counsellor. This may come as a surprise, as this was unfortunately a last minute change announced at the very end of the school year. We are sad to see Ms. Bradbury go, and we want to wish her well at her new schools! Best wishes also to Principal K. Robertson and SNA Ms. N. Garcia who have moved on to new schools - we will miss you!
We have some new support staff this year as well, Ms. M. M. Pacewicz is our new special needs assistant, and we have two new caretakers, Ms. C. Ransome and Ms. C. Young. Also welcome back to Ms. Pang who was on leave last year, and Ms. Sajeevan who was here several years ago! She is replacing Ms. Niranjan who has gone on leave last year.
Reminders for Drivers
Please remember that our parking lot is for staff and Board delivery vehicles. Although there is a turn around area, students can easily walk a few metres even on cold days and need not be driven right up to the parking lot door, which is actually off limits to students.
We also ask that you show respect for our neigbours on Evermede by not making U-turns and by not using driveways to turn around. Please just stop, drop off or pick up your child, and continue on in the same direction.
New Website Launched!
After several years of work with students, Mr. Hann has updated the school website! Thanks for all your hard work Mr. Hann. Please forgive us in advance, as we are still in the process of renewal, and there may be some errors. If you DO find a bug, please click http://bit.ly/Donviewwebbug to send us a note. We are continually working to improve and will fix those as soon as possible.
