At Donald A. Wilson, we have developed a tradition of working with all members of our school community. We understand the difference that engaged parents and guardians can make to our students, and ultimately to student success. We welcome parent involvement in our schools and encourage parents and guardians to have open, productive communication with your child's teacher and school. We also welcome and encourage parents and guardians to become involved in our School Community Council (SCC), which provide a vital link between school, home and community. Please visit our SCC section and page on this website. The SCC is a forum for parents, guardians and other members of the community to contribute to school life. We greatly value the input and advice provided by parents at our SCC.
Technology provides a means for school communities to find out more about what is going on in our schools. To stay on top of DDSB's news, highlights and events, please regularly visit www.ddsb.ca
or follow the school board on Twitter @DurhamDSB.
