Our Parent Society works in partnership with School Council, school staff, and students to identify ways to support and enhance learning experiences at David Thompson School. Some of our recent fundraising has focused on making improvements like:
- Creating collaborative spaces in the Learning Commons
- Updating technology in classrooms
- Improving performing arts spaces
Outdoor Indigenous Learning Space - Donations
David Thompson School would like to design and install an outdoor Indigenous learning space. The garden will be a place of gathering for students, staff, and community members to come together, learn about Indigenous plants and traditions, reflect, and relax. This area will be designed as a circle to promote sharing.
The garden will be used as part of regular school and extra-curricular programming. The final design will be done in consultation with students, teachers, local Elders, parents and other community members, and Calgary Board of Education’s Indigenous Education department and facilities team.
We hope to have the Indigenous Garden ready for use by September 2023.

We invite all parents and caregivers to join us in conversations about how to raise funds, and how to spend them in support of the school community. Our meetings are held immediately after School Council meetings, typically starting around 7:45 p.m.
For meeting dates, refer back to the School Council page.
For agendas and minutes, check out the Resources section.
See our Calendar page for dates and times.
