IMPORTANT:
 Labour Relations Update

June 21, 2015

UPDATE: 

Dear Parent/Guardian:

I would like to provide you with an update regarding report cards, Letters of Promotion, and the sharing of mark information for elementary students.  

Last week, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board advised parents that for Term 2 of the 2014-2015 school  year, the school district will be issuing:

· Report cards to students in grades 8 on June 25, 2015; and

· A Letter of Promotion to students in JK to grade 7 on June 23, 2015.

I am pleased to advise you that, in addition, parents of students in JK to grade 7 will be mailed “Information about Term 2 Marks” by August 31, 2015. The mark information is not a report card, but it will be personalized with the student’s marks by subject and strand, and will be based on the information submitted by the teacher. 

Please note that the Letter of Promotion will be the official document for students in JK to grade 7 and will be filed in the Ontario Student Record.  

These changes to report card practice are a result of the legal job action currently underway by teachers in Ontario.  This week, we were reminded by parents and students that the report card including the marks, learning skills and teacher comments are valued.  While we cannot generate report cards for all students in JK to grade 7, we heard very clearly that limited mark information was better than none.  As a result, we made a commitment to share mark information with parents and students.   

As always, if you have any questions about your child’s learning, we encourage you to contact your child’s teacher prior to the end of the school year.

More detailed information and a series of questions and answers  are posted on the District website at www.ocdsb.ca.  You can send any questions to chat@ocdsb.ca or to Director@ocdsb.ca.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,
Jennifer Adams
Director of Education
Ottawa-Carleton District School Board

A SINCERE THANK YOU: To Our School Council

On behalf of all staff, I want to express my gratitude and sincere appreciation to our Devonshire School Council.
You truly reflect a group of parents who always take care of all students in our school. You are kind, generous 
and giving of your time to complement and enrich the learning at Devonshire. Meg King will be leaving as a terrific
co-chair following a busy two year tenure. We will miss her sense of humour and dedication to the community.
 
Thank you to parents who have volunteered their time to help with field trips, athletic activities, reading to our
students, making pancakes, boiling maple syrup and for supporting countless endeavours.

We look forward to our 2015-2016 school year in our temporary location at St-Ambrose.
 
Warmest Regards,
 
Michele Tatartcheff

Welcome to our School!

Devonshire Community Public School is pleased to announce that during the renovation process we will be located at St-Ambrose School. We will have this facility for the 2015 - 2016 school year.

Our new address (effective September 2015):
175 Beech Street 
Ottawa, ON 
K1Y 3S8

We are extending a warm welcome to Jackie Nuttall, our new Office Administrator at Devonshire Community Public School.

Devonshire Community Public School is a single stream Early French Immersion School. Our mission is to provide each child with the opportunity to achieve his or her potential and become fluent in a second language. We strive to develop in all our students, social responsibility, critical thinking skills, creativity, academic growth to meet established outcomes, and a life-long love of learning.

The notions of family and community are highly valued at our school. The relatively small size  of our school means that children feel a warm welcome here. Students, teachers, support staff, parents, School Council, and the community at large work together in promoting a true partnership that makes Devonshire Community Public School everything a school should be.
