Remarks from Council Co-Chair
March 1, 2017
Hello to all of our Danforth CTI Families
How quickly the school year seems to be flying by! Already, it is March and our students are looking forward to the break before beginning to gear up for culminating activities and final exams. Before we know it, the summer will be upon us and we will be celebrating the successes of yet another class of Danforth CTI graduates.
In the meantime, there are lots of exciting opportunities in the months ahead for our students as well as for our families. You are encouraged to check out both the school council website and the DCTI website for daily updates and events. We’ve created a new look on the school council site and hope that it offers information that you will find helpful in being an active and supportive partner in your student’s high school experience.
The council is excited to announce that in partnership with Child Development Institute we are launching April and May workshops. These evening workshops will introduce issues that are especially relevant in better understanding and supporting the unique learning needs of students with learning disabilities but which also provide insights into and an appreciation of all of our students’ learning styles and needs. We were fortunate to apply for and receive a Parent Reaching Out (PRO) grant from the Ministry of Education and are excited to be bringing this series to our Danforth CTI families. Please stay tuned for dates and the topics we will be covering.
As we prepare for the relocation of Greenwood Secondary School to Danforth CTI, a transition team made up of staff, administration and students from both schools is working collaboratively on planning and preparation. The relocation will be complete for the start of the 2017-2018 school year. This is an amazing opportunity for our two schools to work together in creating unique and collaborative learning experiences for the staff and students from both schools. Relocation information is available on the Danforth DCTI website.
As always, our school council is working to create different forums through which we can share information with our families. We encourage you to visit the school council website often and connect with us by email at: DCTI.SchoolCouncil@tdsb.on.ca.
We welcome you to attend our next school council meeting is March 8th 2017. The agenda is available on the website. Council meetings allow for parents and caregivers to connect with each other and with school staff. They are another way for you to be an active participant in your student’s learning experience here at Danforth CTI.
