Principal's Message

Welcome to JDPS!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Jack Donohue P.S. Grades JK to 8 are busy and exciting years. The staff at JDPS is dedicated to making these years productive and enjoyable for each student. We are starting off the school year with over 800 students.

Everyone is welcome here!

We are dedicated to providing a welcoming environment to families, students and staff at Jack Donohue P.S. Cultural diversity is an important part of our community and is a contributing component to the growth and vibrancy of our students. We value, embrace and encourage diversity and believe that it builds a stronger community and contributes to learning and growth. We are proud to teach, live, and share the things that we have in common while celebrating what makes each of us unique.

Your child is safe with us!

A child feels safe to learn and achieve in an environment where they feel protected and cared for. We take our responsibility to create a safe school for all our students very seriously. We are actively involved in promoting a safe and caring school and dedicated to working with our community members to ensure that our students can learn in a safe, secure, and welcoming school.

Students at JDPS have some very important responsibilities. These responsibilities focus on regular attendance, good work habits, daily preparation, and acceptable behaviour. In accepting these responsibilities, they will find that, not only do they enjoy academic success, but also that there are many activities available to them. This includes a wide range of athletic activities, opportunities in music and drama, trips, clubs, organizations and special events. Their willingness to accept responsibilities as a student, as well as take advantage of the many exciting activities offered, can make their years at JDPS productive, enjoyable and memorable. We trust that students will make the most of their time at JDPS!

I am always available to hear from and meet with our community members. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, ideas or concerns. Together we can ensure that our students reach their full potential.
