Dear parents,

Your 2020 tax receipts for lunch/daycare are now available in Mozaik. The receipts are issued in the name of the payer. Therefore, each parent who has a receipt will need to access them individually via their own Mozaik account.

Please note that depending on the software on your iPad or Smartphone, you may not be able to see the PDF document. We recommend using a desktop computer if you encounter any issues.

Thank you, stay safe and enjoy your March Break!

 

Extraordinary times require extraordinary people!

This year, more than ever, we appreciate all the things that Dorset teachers and staff do each day to make an impact on the lives of our children. So, let's take a moment to let them know how we feel and why they're so important! Why is your teacher extraordinary?

What extraordinary thing has a staff member done that made a difference for you? Share a note by clicking the button below or send a picture, drawing or short video of your child with us to let them know! Please keep the file no larger than 5MB and email directly to
homeandschool.dorset@gmail.com

We will be creating a small media presentation/virtual card that will be shared only with the teacher or staff member. Most children have more than one teacher or staff member, so please feel free to send as many messages as you like.

 

 

Dorset offers an Early Immersion Program to approximately 300 students. Approximately 50% of our students come from the on-island communities of Baie D'Urfé, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Senneville, while 50% of our students come from the off-island community of Notre-Dame-de-l'ile Perrot and Ile Perrot. Our student population is diverse in terms of ethnic origin, socio-economic status, academic abilities and social adaptation. Our bilingual and multicultural environment is supportive of shared decision making and open communication.

Student success is fostered through a comprehensive curriculum, effective and innovative teaching strategies, ongoing professional development and continuous support of individual student growth. We strive to provide a safe and caring climate, in which respect and trust is cultivated between all stakeholders; students, staff, parents and the larger community.

One of the main reasons Dorset has such a vibrant school culture is that alongside a dynamic and challenging academic program is an incredible enrichment program offering clubs and activities such as; Peace Pals, Environment Club, Extracurricular Program, school plays and concerts, participation/hosting LBPSB sports tournaments and lunchtime intramural sports program.

A strong focus of our academic program is the effective integration of information technology to enhance teaching and learning opportunities for all. All classrooms are equipped with Smartboards as well teachers have access to three mobile labs equipped with iPads and netbooks.

Dorset continues to work on STEAM initiatives throughout K – 6. We have many community partners who come to present and work with our students on a regular basis. These partnerships enrich the students’ experiences in Science and Technology.

Parent volunteers are very much a part of the learning environment at Dorset. Many volunteers support student learning by helping in the library, being reading buddies, assisting on field trips, and working on school committees such as Home and School and the Governing Board. We applaud the efforts of our parent volunteers and others from the community who so generously give their time and in so doing, make Dorset a better school for all.
