Join the Party at CDS: Dinner & Auction - June 2, 2023
After a three-year hiatus, we are thrilled to announce the return of The Country Day School’s annual Auction party on Friday, June 2, 2023! This is an evening you won’t want to miss as we come together as a community to celebrate our school’s 50th anniversary in the Cyclone Dome.
Remembrance Day at The Country Day School has always been a time where faculty and staff in the Junior School and Middle/Senior Schools come together to pay respect to our fallen soldiers and honour the peacekeeping efforts of today.
Last week, every student and every adult in our Junior School placed a poppy of remembrance on our JS Poppy Fence. This was our way to recognize the 101st anniversary of the poppy. And a promise that we will always remember, today, tomorrow and always.
Parent Association Event on Social Networking Safety
As parents, we know how critical it is that we remain informed of what our children are doing, who they are doing it with, and where they are spending their time on social media. In our rapidly changing world, this task of attempting to stay ahead of the curve often feels overwhelming.
Earlier this month, we welcomed our Founding families back for a tour and dinner to pay tribute to them for helping to imagine a private school in King for their children 50 years ago, and successfully turning that dream into reality.
Introducing Chefs Julie & Richard in our Dining Hall
It is wonderful to see our Dining Hall back at full capacity and all of our serveries back up in running. On the eve of the Thanksgiving long weekend, we thought this would be a good time to introduce our two new Aramark Chefs: Julie Axford, the new Head of Operations (food/housekeeping) and Richard Perks, as Executive Chef.
It’s hard to believe that earlier this month, The Country Day School kicked off its 50th anniversary celebration year. While the school’s actual anniversary was the beginning of September, we have decided to celebrate the 50th throughout this entire academic year.
Last Week's Terry Fox Run & Important Words to Live By
Last Friday, The Country Day School held its 31st run for Terry Fox in which the entire school participated. In anticipation of the the run, the Junior School talked about Terry’s Marathon of Hope in their weekly assembly. Mr. Burleigh acknowledged the important work of former CDS student and Terry Fox Run participant, Hart Jackson '02, who today conducts cancer research at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute at Sinai Health. Following the assembly, Mrs. Paige Moore from the Junior School main office, a survivor herself, had the honour of raising the Terry Fox Flag in the Junior School with the help of Mr. Burleigh and Mrs. Wildberger.
Last spring, we conducted two online surveys – one among CDS Parents and one among CDS Students in Grades 6-12. Attached are highlights from both surveys, as well as some areas in need of improvement and attention, and recent school initiatives either underway or already developed to address these issues.
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.
