Dear Parents and Guardians:

Just a few weeks ago, I was writing our June message, as we anticipated summer and looked forward to activities that would revitalize our bodies and minds.  Well, it's the "new year" again, and we are anticipating the return of our students and staff for another year of much learning and lots of great experiences.

Please read the September newsletter posted to the left.  In addition to the Newsletter, I have also now posted the order form for the first Milk Period of the school year.  Please note that you will be able to pay for milk using the Cashless System.

École Dufferin is growing and growing.  We anticipate at least 440 students entering our school this September, and you will notice that we have yet another portable on our property.  Hopefully this will be our last "growing pain" for a time!

On a happy note, our earliest indications of June's EQAO testing results are consistent with the scores that we have seen over the last few years - reflecting the hard work done by both students and teachers in reaching these strong levels of achievement. 

Please make sure that you read the calendar for September provided at the end of the Newsletter.  Plan to be here for Meet the Teacher Night on September 18th, and consider joining signing up to volunteer with us during the Terry Fox Run, an annual commitment to making a difference.

See you next week!

Mme Marlies Redekop, Principal
