The SAC is a group of student-elected representatives that organize events and fundraisers for Don Mills. From School dances such as semi formal and prom, to our athletic banquet and Don Mills spirit wear sales, and dodgeball games with the police, we work around the clock to make DMCI one of the most fun schools in the TDSB. Our SAC is very active sponsoring many different clubs and activities throughout the year. They run charity fundraisers, lunchtime events, a semi-forma and provide character examples to help us set school tone and culture. We are very lucky to have Mr. Ben Gross as our staff advisor to help us develop leadership skills.
There is a student fee of $55 payable and details on what it contributes to are included here.
Students can find SAC online through the Student Outreach Facebook group, ask an SAC member to add you if you haven’t been already.
