Toonies for Terry Fox Walk on Sept 15th

Our community schools have contributed significantly over the years to the Terry Fox Campaign. Over $6.7 million was raised by Ontario schools in 2016! At Martha Cullimore, we would like to contribute again to this worthwhile cause. This year, we would like everyone to try contribute a “Toonie for Terry”.  Students may simply bring in a toonie and drop it in our donation bucket. Of course, if you wish to contribute more, you are welcome to send your donation in marked “Terry Fox”.

We’ll do our part by running or walking the “Terry Fox Track” on Martha Cullimore’s field on Friday, September 15th, at approximately 11:00am. Students should wear their colour house T-shirts on this day. In advance, we thank you for your contribution and support of our Terry Fox Walk 2017.

Student Agendas

Students in grades 1 to 6 have just received a new school agenda for this year.  Please read through it with your child and become familiar with the information inside. We are asking parents to please submit $6.00 to cover the cost of this tool through School Cash Online.  Thank you.  Enjoy!

Open House & BBQ on Sept 13th

Please come to the Martha Cullimore Open House on Wednesday, September 13th between 5:30pm and 7:00pm to meet the staff and tour the school. Enjoy a community social out back on the playground for a barbecue at 5:30pm before coming into the school at 6:00pm. Barbecued hot dogs, hamburgers and beverages are on the house! Please return the slip sent home by Friday, September 8th so that we can prepare.

We look forward to seeing you!


At the DSBN, we strive to show all students how they matter: as individuals, as learners and as community members. Our students learn about the ideals of good citizenship and how they can become active participants in building a stronger community, locally and globally.
