WITS





Dorset Elementary School (Kindergarten to Grade 6) is located in Baie D'Urfé, Quebec, and is part of the Lester B. Pearson School Board. We will be offering an early immersion program beginning in the 2016-2017 school year at the Kindergarten to Grade 2 level.

 

Mission Statement

The community of Dorset School is dedicated to educating life-long learners who are respectful of self and others, effective bilingual communicators and technologically literate. We achieve this by providing a safe and caring climate. A Dorset graduate will be self-confident, a creative problem solver and a successful and productive member of a global community, ready for the challenges and responsibilities of being a citizen in a rapidly changing world.

 

Vision Statement

The community of Dorset School strives to provide a community school where parents feel welcome to become partners in their child's education, where commitment to learning and success for all is prioritized in everyone's thoughts and actions.

 

In the News

 

 

 

 

At Dorset, we cherish our volunteers. We know that our school would be a lot different without them.

Some of our volunteers brighten our environment with their smiles and good intentions during the day when they come to read with young ones, assist students in finding books in the library, match pizza and subway lunches to names, help in the classrooms or special activities, make photocopies and deliver them to help the office, take pictures, strap kids up for Jungle Sport or manage the book fairs. 

 

Our volunteers also can be seen continually counting and guiding students on field trips and encouraging kids or running themselves at the Junior Cross-Country run or Track and Field.

We have many volunteers behind the scenes too, such those on Governing Board, others who organise hot dog lunches as a grad fundraiser, and a few who spend countless hours making sure all the needed pictures have been taken and are well-placed in the yearbook with the perfect colour combinations and the right font.

People who volunteer for Home and School often end up doing things they never expected to do, such as dressing up as Santa, calling out Bingo numbers, wrapping Christmas baskets, buying pancake mix, ketchup, forks, knives, syrup for 200, utilizing their charms and favours to get sponsors and animating giant board games in the gym with the whole school. They may be buying kitchen appliances or kicking staff out of the school with mischievous grins to sweeten up the décor. They may also do experiments on Dorset personnel by feeding them multiple desserts at once to see if they get sugar rushes. Maybe they will face their fears of speaking on stage during comedy night or do some bartending. They may even be asked to move fridges from the kitchen to the gym and back again. 

Elizabeth Andrew said “Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” Most of our volunteers have multiple kids, are greatly involved with their children’s other activities and could use time to themselves. Have you seen Amanda and/or Ryan with their baby girl on their hip setting up, serving or cleaning up during a family event?

I quote a man named Ivan Scheier “The broadest, and maybe the most meaningful definition of volunteering: Doing more than you have to because you want to, in a cause you consider good.Thank you for making Dorset School one of your causes.

We appreciate that not only do you step up to the plate, you bring the equipment and rake the field.

We are sad that some of our volunteers are leaving us at the end of this school year but their kind actions have left imprints on our Dorset community.

On behalf of the Volunteer Reception Committee; Mme Gardois, Mrs. Pary, Mrs. Harwood and myself, our principal Mrs. Maurice and the rest of our staff, thank you.

Mme Sylviane Martinis
