This has been a great week for teacher professional development at Courcelette. It’s important for our students to know that their teachers are working on improving their skills too. We were pleased to welcome Mr. Audley Salmon, our area superintendent, who joined us during the PA day to learn more about our work in improving outcomes in mathematics.




To our incoming Junior Kindergarten parents/guardians, we would like to welcome you to the Courcelette School community. On May 3rd, (5-6pm) we will be hosting a “Welcome to Kindergarten” information session. This informative session will cover a range of topics related to starting school. The session will take place in our school gymnasium.

Melissa Seco from the TDSB Early Years department joined our Kindergarten team to plan our Welcome to Kindergarten information session.
