The temperatures have dropped, snow is (occasionally) on the ground, and our local ice rinks are open for business. All this means one thing: it's time to get your skate on! The Duke Skate Library is now open! Best part of all? It's totally FREE!
How does it work?
Looking to off-load skates that your little ones have outgrown? We'll have a skate donation bin the in the Main Office.

With all the community fundraising events that are organized by SAC each year, you may wonder how our funds are spent. Here are some of the ways in which we all help support our school:
All of these items are extras that we offer our students, which are not funded by the TDSB. We also continue to fundraise for the DUKE PLAYS campaign, which will support the eagerly awaited playground redesign, as well as recently announced renovation and redesign of the school library!
Not all of us have time to volunteer or attend our myriad events. If you still want to contribute to our efforts, here is your chance. Attached is Enrichment Fundraising form. Donations of 25$ or more are eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
