OPEN FROM APRIL 24-MAY 29
Boards across Ontario are required to conduct anonymous school climate surveys of their students in Grades 4 to 12, parents, and school staff at least once every two years.  A safe, inclusive, and accepting school environment is essential for student success and well-being. The data collected from these surveys helps to identify gaps and areas of improvement for school and board planning aimed at preventing bullying and harassment.  Students and staff will be completing the survey electronically in class between April 24 and May 29, 2017.  Student participation is not mandatory.  If you do not wish your child to participate please notify the KDSS administration in writing.

We are asking parents to complete a survey as well. The parent survey is available online from April 24-May 29 via the School Climate Survey link to the left of this message.  

The required Access Code for KDSS parents is 2-TWH-373-M
                                                                     
Alternatively, you can request a paper copy of the survey.  

It is important that we hear from as many parents as possible.  Thank you for taking the time to provide this important feedback.

NEW KDSS MURAL CELEBRATED, APRIL 21

KDSS is delighted to play host to a new and original piece of art designed by Grade 12 student Lindsay Glover. The mural depicts the four seasons of KDSS and encompasses and symbolizes much of what the school community values.  A big thank you goes out to Lindsay for her winning design and to the KDSS Home & School Association for sponsoring the Mural Art Contest.  Lindsay is seen above receiving an honourarium for her work from KDSS H&S Chair Charlene Wilson.

FUNDSCRIP - THE SCHOOL FUNDRAISER THAT COSTS YOU NOTHING EXTRA

Dear Parents of KDSS:

Every year KDSS organizes a fundraising program to raise much needed funds. The money we earn helps to pay for ‘extras’ not covered by the school budget.  We provide money for a number of school activities, sports and clubs.

To reach our fundraising goal, we have chosen FUNDSCRIP.   
FundScrip costs you nothing!

Picture this:  You make your usual visit to the grocery store.  You fill your cart and go to the check out. Instead of paying with cash or a debit card, you use a gift card that you purchased through our school. It costs you nothing extra but you just earned money for KDSS.  You can use FundScrip cards to purchase your everyday essentials such as groceries, gas and clothing. You can even use them at restaurants or for a cup of coffee.  Please go to www.findscrip.com/retailers to see the complete list of participating retailers.

How does FundScrip work?

All you have to do is buy gift cards from FundScrip for the stores where you already shop.  You spend the gift cards just like cash and in the process, earn money for KDSS campaigns.

The gift cards are the retailers own cards that are swiped at the cash.  The value of the purchase is automatically deducted from the value stored on the card.  Any remaining balance can be used for future purchases.
