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.
Report Cards went home Friday February 6, for Term 1. Parent Teacher interviews will be scheduled for the following Thursday Afternoon/Evening (February 12), and Friday Morning (February 13). Please return interview sheets as soon as possible!
Please note that some students received notices in their packages indicating that an interview IS requested, while other students received notices that an interview is NOT required. While we endeavour to meet with all parents during the scheduled interview time, we do want to ensure that students who are risk for promotion and whose progress has declined receive an interview first. All other requests will be considered if space is available.
MESSAGE SENT ON BEHALF OF DONNA QUAN, DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION --- Please find attached a letter from Toronto Public Health with regards to the measles outbreak in Toronto and the importance of vaccinations.
It is important to note that Donview does NOT have any sign of an outbreak at this time. Our Director has simply requested that all staff and parents of all TDSB students be made aware of this information. If you'd like more information, there is also an eight page information booklet for parents. You can also visit the Toronto Public Health website.
Please remember that students need to be appropriately dressed for the weather, due to the extreme cold! Also, reminder that if you are dropping students off by car, please do not turn around on the street or pull into neighbours driveways - use our drop off and turn around loop.
We'd like to welcome our new snack Co-Ordinator Ms. Kumpf! She is doing some great work providing excellent healthy, nutritious snack for our students. For your interest, here is the snack menu for February!
Please take a look at the January edition of the Digest Newsletter from the snack department. You will find the previous November newsletter here. Also, please consider making a donation to the Toronto Foundation For Student Success to help support our snack program. Even donations as small as 20$ can make a big difference.
Mr. Hann recently presented the work done by his and Ms. Mohamed's class at the 2014 Toronto Mini Maker Faire! Class 84 students from the class of 2014 worked for 3 months in Language, Math, Science and History class to make pinball machines. They showed them off to the public on Saturday November 22 and Sunday November 23 at the Toronto Reference Library.
The project was a big hit with parents and kids at the Faire. The Toronto Star article about the Faire, highlighting our project among others, was featured on the front page with a picture and headline! Congratulations to everyone for all their hard work. We are looking forward to this years' project!
Our newsletter is now online here. Check it out for lots of important information. Many clubs and teams are starting up, so stay tuned for that information as it comes available.
You may have noticed that the website is not being updated as much as before. This is because we are working on a brand new fully revamped website! Stay tuned for the official release of our new website, which will feature better organization, more and updated information, and a cleaner look!
