Summer Office Hours
Plesae check the calendar at right to see when the office will be open for students to come and pick up thier report cards.

Host an International Student
This September, MLI Homestay is excited to welcome a large group of international high school students to the Bluewater District School Board! We are looking for families in the Bluewater region who are interested in hosting international students for varying durations. 
 
Hosting is a great opportunity for families to explore new cultures, learn about global issues, and travel the world without leaving home! We are specifically looking for families to host Japanese and Spanish students for 2-10 month durations. The students will attend a number of high schools within BWDSB
 
Families must provide students with a private room, three meals per day, and - most importantly - a warm and welcoming home environment.
Monthly compensation is provided to all host families.
 
If you are interested in these exciting opportunities, or would like to learn more about becoming a host family, please contact:
Sarah Cook,
Grey/Bruce County Homestay Coordinator

Fundscrip  2014-2015

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 Campaigns: H&S, Robotics, Music, Outdoor Education Course, Environmental Sustainability Initiatives, Transportation, Trips, All Activities &
Sports: VB, BB, H (please put sport initial by your name when ordering).

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.
