 Welcome to Devonshire Community Public School!

Devonshire - Everything a school should be!
Devonshire is truly a community school; providing each child with the opportunity to achieve his or her potential; educating our children to be readers and writers, to be mathematically literate, to be critical thinkers and to have a life-long love of learning. We are also raising our students to be citizens of the world which means helping those who are less fortunate, being compassionate, being fair and being just. At Devonshire Community Public School,  children feel a warm welcome and we know that the future starts today, in our classrooms with each and every child who enters. Students, teachers, support staff, parents, School Council, and the community at large work together in promoting a true partnership that makes Devonshire CPS everything a school should be.

We play outdoors all year round (except when temperature is below -25 degrees)!  


RAIN:  Hooded waterproof rain jacket, rain pants, rain boots. Umbrellas are OK at recess.

WINTER:  Hooded winter coat. Warm hat, mitts & winter boots. Waterproof snow pants once the temperature dips below zero. 

For COLDER or WINDIER Days: Add a scarf or neck warmer.

We are often outside multiples times a day, and we let kids play in the rain and snow. Items do not have time to dry between recesses.

All students should have extra pairs of socks AND extra pairs of mitts in their backpacks.

Progress Reports and Interviews

I wanted to share information with your regarding progress reports and parent teacher interviews. Under the terms of the central agreement for elementary teachers, the timing of the fall progress report was delayed. At the OCDSB, elementary progress reports will be issued for all students in grades 1 through 8 on December 10, 2015. These reports will cover the regular fall reporting period, from the first day of school to October 30th, 2015. The reports will include information about progress and teacher comments.

A reminder that Friday, November 20th is a Professional Activity Day. This is the date scheduled for parent teacher interviews. Under the terms of the central agreement, teacher-parent interviews remain at the discretion of the teacher and will be initiated if the teacher has a concern about a student’s progress. If your child’s teacher feels that an interview would be required, he or she will contact you directly to arrange a time on either the evening of Thursday, November 19th or on the morning of Friday, November 20th. As always, parents are encouraged to contact their child’s teacher if they have any questions or concerns about their child’s progress. Teachers remain committed to ongoing communication with individual parents/guardians regarding student progress and development.

Although job action has ended for elementary teachers, we continue to have sanctions in place for our educational support workers. This does have an impact on school operations and we appreciate your ongoing support as we work through those issues.

I want to assure you that our key priority remains working to ensure students have a successful school year. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding.

Kindest regards,

Julie Derbyshire
