The Country Day School's Annual Dinner & Auction party will return on Friday, May 31, 2024! This is an evening you won't want to miss as we come together to celebrate Under the Big Top - otherwise known as our very own Cyclone Dome here on campus. The CDS Dinner & Auction is our most anticipated adult social event, as well as the largest fundraiser of the year. CDS families and friends have been coming together to celebrate and make this event a huge success since 1974, raising in excess of $6 million dollars since the beginning. You do not want to miss being a part of this evening!
The success of the event every year is due to the generosity of our families and the CDS community and this is where you can help! We encourage everyone to consider making a donation on behalf of themselves or their family.

JS Choir & SS Vocal Students Deliver Holiday Cheer
Last Wednesday, members of the CDS Junior Choir and the Senior Vocal Class travelled to Maple to visit the Richview Manor Retirement Village. Students sang winter and holiday-themed music to entertain the residents and help spread some holiday cheer!
Our parent volunteers have always been an integral part of our community. As the school year gets into full swing, we will have a variety of volunteer opportunities become available. From helping with the Holiday Fair, preowned uniform sales, refreshments at the plays and concerts and just general help and so much more!
Award-Winning Jazz Musicians Grace the Stage at CDS Tuesday
Tuesday evening’s musical performance by internationally renowned trumpet player Jens Lindemann was absolutely out of this world! What a treat to have such high-calibre musicians in the building performing for our students and local community. We would like to extend a very special thanks to the Karch family for making this event possible.
We are pleased to announce that the CDS Holiday Fair will return on November 30th and December 1st! Organized by our volunteer Parent Association, this boutique shopping experience features a one-stop, festive shopping extravaganza with something for everyone.
CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land. CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
