Leadership Recognition

“Leadership in the OCDSB is the demonstration of personal initiative to achieve a positive outcome.”

 

Students

Our students have many opportunities to demonstrate their leadership skills and we value and promote their initiatives. Our Student Council organizes school-wide activities and fundraising events. Fisher/Summit has had student representation at several events including Rolling Rampage on Parliament Hill, the CORE Leadership Symposium and We Day conference and have brought back ideas on how our school can make a difference. Our Retro clothing store and Environmental club also demonstrate their dedication to our school community. Students show leadership in sports, and participate in many sporting events at the regional and Board levels.

Staff

Our Fisher Park/Summit Alternative staff has a wealth of professional qualifications. They consistently host student teachers and actively participate in numerous Board-wide professional development activities in literacy and numeracy, and we recognize their initiative by providing and supporting opportunities for further professional growth. Each year, staff and members of the community work together to organize an “Open Your Eyes” day of workshops for students. Our staff is dedicated to providing our students with extra-curricular activities designed to increase student engagement and promote a positive and enriching school environment.

Parents/Guardians/Volunteers

Our volunteers contributed many hours of support for the benefit of students in our school. They help by working with students, assisting with field trips and supporting special events. Our School Council meets monthly and contributes to the direction of the school. Through their fundraising efforts our school has been able to enhance our library resources, arts programs, field trips, sports activities and end of the year trips. As invaluable partners, we thank our parents and volunteers on an ongoing basis, and look for opportunities to acknowledge them such as in school announcements, in school newsletters and in our Principal’s report to School Council.

Community

Every year during our “Open Your Eyes” event many community members and organizations are invited representing local businesses, and the local police, to showcase their services. We recognize our community partners through our school announcements, school newsletters, school web site, Principal’s report to School Council, and thank you cards. We invite them to events, and the grade 8 School Leaving Ceremony. We believe in strong community partnerships and we work closely with the Fisher Park Community Center and Association, our feeder schools, and other social agencies to provide a safe, caring, supportive school community focused on student learning.
