Hats off to CBE Schools for Cutting waste by the Ton

Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

June 2019

​Thank you for the warm welcome to Douglasdale School. It has been a steep learning curve getting to know the staff, students and parents but I feel quite at home here. Douglasdale School has a culture that clearly focusses on student achievement and success. The physical spaces are designed with students in mind and the staff is nurturing, hardworking and committed to providing quality experiences for your children. Diane Kamitakahara, although retired, is still on speed-dial to help answer questions and offer guidance and Mrs. Weir has been invaluable. For that I am thankful. Edie Reichardt, your new principal, has been by on several occasions to meet with staff and plan for the 2019/20 school year. She has an excellent reputation and is thrilled to be joining this wonderful school community.
All of us DDS loved being pampered by school council during staff appreciation week. The treats, kind words and gifts are much appreciated. Thanks to the DDS school council executive and to all of you for your contributions to our school. Your passion and commitment to public education makes a big difference. Special thanks to David’s Tea for their donations. 
The preliminary school budget for the upcoming school year will be leaner due to funding reductions across the CBE. The good news is that each class will have a talented teacher, our music program is intact, and we still have two educational assistants. Unfortunately, we did have to reduce the hours of teachers who provide extra classroom support as well as educational assistant and library support. Things may change in the fall once the provincial budget is released. 
Several staff members will be moving on at the end of the school year. Farewell to Teodora Toth and Karen Duquette who may return under the EA retention program, John Kershaw is moving to a teaching position in Saskatchewan and Lisa MacGillivray and Rachel Oke will be pursuing other teaching opportunities within the CBE. All are valued employees who will be missed. We wish them well. 
Once approved, the DDS school calendar for 2019/20 will be sent out. The last day of classes this year is June 26.
From all of us at DDS, have a safe and memorable summer. 

Chris Aylesworth, Acting Principal 
Shawna Weir, Assistant Principal, Darryl Fidler, Learning Leader
