Dennis Avenue Community School

Food for Kids Program

We know that the closure of schools has been difficult for many families, especially those who rely on school-based Student Nutrition Programs. The TDSB and the Toronto Foundation for Student Success have teamed up to provide families at your school with $50 grocery store food cards (one per TDSB student). If your family would benefit from this card, please complete the registration form online.

Model Schools

Model Schools for Inner Cities Vision:

The TDSB has developed the Model Schools for Inner Cities (MSIC) program to provide students with the tools, resources, and opportunities they need to participate fully and equally in schools and their communities.

Five Essential Components:

1.  Innovative Teaching and Learning Practices

2.  Supportive Services to meet the Social, Emotional, and Physical Wellbeing of Students

3.  School as the Heart of the Community

4.  Research, Review, and Evaluation of students and programs

5.  Commitment to Share Successful Practices

At Dennis Avenue C.S., we are pleased to be a Model School.  Mr. Hurd is our Community Support Worker.  He helps to engage parents and provide meaningful and relevant community programming for parents.  We have a nutrition program and free vision and hearing testing and subsequent service for selected students.  We have partnerships with community agencies (e.g., Yorktown Family Services, Toronto Police Services, Unison Health Care, Toronto Public Health, York University Nursing Program, Ontario Early Years). We approach curriculum teaching through a lens of culturally responsive and relevant pedagogy to develop critical thinking skills and improved academic results.
