Fundraising Association Bylaws

Our initial meeting regarding a Fundraising Association for DCE was a great success!  If you missed this meeting, you have another opportunity to come to a second meeting where we will create our by-laws (which you will find more interesting than it sounds)!

WHY:  An incorporated fundraising association/society has the discretion to decide what bylaws work best for them, in keeping with the Societies Act, and within the context of their community. Topics include; model of governance, membership, decision making, terms of office, conflict resolution, bylaw changes, and dissolution.

WHO:  All parents/guardians of students enrolled in Davidson Creek Elementary School, all staff members, and interested community members are invited to join us!

WHEN:  Monday, March 12, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

WHERE:  Board Room, Elk Island Public Central Office, 683 Wye Road, Sherwood Park

For your reference here are  the PowerPoint and Information Package from the first meeting.

No Cost to Register. For More Information, Contact:

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

We warmly welcome you to Davidson Creek Elementary (DCE)! It is a tremendous honour to be appointed as the first principal and I look forward to the many opportunities that come with opening a new school. Starting a school from the very beginning is a wonderful gift full of promise and adventure for all involved. Together we will create a vision and solid foundation where students have the best opportunity to learn in student-centred environments.

Students are the heart of our school, and each student is valued for their uniqueness. At DCE, it is our commitment to create an engaging and rich learning environment for all students.

Kaye Schindeler

Principal
