We have signed the school up for the Education Matters Loonies for Literacy initiative. This campaign runs from now through the month of May. Please feel free to share this link to your own social media platforms to help spread the word https://secure.e2rm.com/p2p/fundraising/373841/participant/5088920/en-CA or tell friends and family that they can text LITERACY DHARK to 30333 to make a donation through their phone plan. All funds raised will be used to purchase literacy materials and supplies for Douglas Harkness School. 

Are you moving? We need your new address! Please call or email the school if you are moving or have moved during the school year. We need to make sure that the contact information in our system is correct. Thank you for your help with this.

Kindergarten registration is happening NOW! Is your little one ready for Kindergarten? We would love to have them join our Douglas Harkness community of learners. Next year planning is happening now. Please call the school to find out how to register them so that we are ready for them when they arrive. Mark June 9th on your calendar so that you can come to our Welcome to Kindergarten Open House.
