Dear DG Families,
Welcome back to school and to the final term of the 2022-23 school year. We hope that all of you have a very restful and enjoyable Spring Break!
Class photos will be taken on Friday, March 31st (rain or shine). We will aim to take pictures outside but in the case of rain, the pictures will be taken in the library. Please note, we are not able to let families know what time their child’s class photo will be taken on Friday as things can fluctuate throughout the day.
Track and Field
Track and Field activities will begin for our grades 4 – 7 students shortly after Spring Break. Your intermediate child will be able to share with you, shortly, his/her schedule of when they need to come to school with their running shoes and athletic clothes.
Please also watch for the Track and Field T-shirt order forms, coming home soon.

Thank you for your continued support of the crossing guard program at Devon Gardens. This important leadership role helps keep the students safe.

All Crossing Guards have been provided the schedule.
