Latin American History Month

latin

During the month of April, the Toronto District School Board proudly recognizes Latin-America History Month. In April 2016, our TDSB Board of Trustees voted that April be designated as Latin-America History Month. The motion was a result of advocacy on behalf of TDSB students, educators, parents/caregivers as well as community organizations within LAEN-The Latinx, Afro-Latin-America Abya Yala Education Network. Together, hundreds of community members called for the TDSB to take up the work of addressing social inequities harming TDSB school families with ancestry from the Lands that are known in Western mainstream culture as Latin-America.

Making Our Thinking Visible!

Welcome to our school web site. As part of the Toronto District School Board's Vision for Learning we will be focusing on three areas: equity, well-being and achievement. Together we will:

1) Make every school an effective school;
2) Build leadership within a culture of adaptability, openness and resilience;
3) Form strong and effective relationships and partnerships;
4) Build environmentally sustainable schools that inspire teaching and learning;
5) Identify disadvantage and intervene effectively.

Our web site is one way we can demonstrate these values. Click on the menu items to find out more about our school and please visit often.
