Dear CDS Parents,
We trust that you and your family have been enjoying the summer months and are starting to prepare for Back to School in September. Before you know it, we will be welcoming your children back on campus!
The coming year will see the school’s enrolment crest 800 students for the first time. This is as a result of strong enrolment across all grades, but more specifically because of the addition of a second JK and SK class. In addition to more than 150 new students, we also have a number of new faculty/staff joining our CDS team, and look forward to hosting everyone at our annual Welcome Back BBQ on the first day of school, Wednesday, September 6th!
You will notice some facility project updates upon your return to campus. After a much-extended construction cycle, our Junior School rejuvenation project is largely complete and occupancy has been secured! Additionally, the Paul C. Duckett Theatre has had an entirely new seating system installed with brand new carpet and seats.
There is also much work taking place on Dufferin Street, where the Township is running water and septic lines on the wayside, to which the school will shortly connect after almost 20 years of waiting! And, as is the case every year, our Facilities team has been massively busy preparing the school in every manner and fashion for your return.
More detailed information will follow in school divisional communications, but for now, I hope that the remainder of your summer is peaceful and safe, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back in September!
Head of School
