November 22 - December 31 – DPCDSB Student Census
Beginning on November 22, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) will be running its DPCDSB Student Census. This census is an online survey that collects information about students’ social identities associated with the protected grounds of the Ontario Human Rights Code, as well as information about students’ lived experiences at DPCDSB schools. Collection of identity-based data helps DPCDSB identify disproportionalities and disparities, which are signs of systemic racism and discrimination. Addressing systemic racism and discrimination aligns with Catholic Social Teachings of human dignity, solidarity, living in community, and rights and responsibilities. The Ministry of Education and Ontario’s Anti-Racism Act, 2017, requires public sector organizations, including school districts, to collect identity-based data to identify and address systemic racism. Students in Grades 4-12 will complete the census during class time. Parents and guardians of students in Kindergarten to Grade 3, as well as students whose abilities require parent/guardian completion of the census, will be asked to complete the census online. More Information.

November 28 – First Sunday in Advent

"Therefore, you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour."  (Matthew 24.44) Advent marks the beginning of a new liturgical calendar and begins the preparations for Christmas, the coming of Christ. It is a season of hope and of longing, of joyful expectation and of peaceful preparation. During the season of Advent, we are called to seek the light of Christ, even in the midst of darkness. We are invited to face the darkness in our own lives and in the world around us. We ask that God's grace transform us, so that we can be beacons of light to the world, just as Christ is to us.
