 Fun Pass for Canada 150

This year, to help celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, we are expanding the Fun Pass so that two children, not one, get free admission with the Fun Pass to 18 popular provincial attractions with one paying adult or senior. Parents also save $5 on a daily parking permit at most Ontario provincial parks. The Fun Passes are usually distributed to schools in mid to late June.​




OSTA will be responsible for managing all applications, approvals and assignments for empty seats as of April 1, 2017.  The application form and procedures will be available on OSTA’s website: .


Students applying for an empty seat after April 1, and for the 2017-18 school year, should send their forms directly to OSTA via email at, or fax their form to 613-224-8840.  If parents cannot access email or fax, the school will be happy to send your completed form to OSTA on your behalf.

Elementary Report Cards/Communication of Learning DELAYED!
The distribution date for report cards for students in grades 1-8, and students in year 2 of the kindergarten program has been delayed. Elementary report cards will now be released on February 22, 2017. The change in date was necessary due to District-wide network issues that delayed the production of report cards. 
OCDSB Parent Guide to Elementary Assessment and Evaluation.  The guide has excellent information about how teachers approach assessment and evaluation which could be helpful in understanding your child's report card. Please click on the above link to see the document.
