It is a pleasure to welcome new and returning students and families. Our school serves the growing communities of Laurel and Daly Grove. We have a proud tradition of providing a learning environment full of rich educational experiences for students that focuses on success, leadership, mutual respect, and modelling of excellent citizenship and acceptance of all students. We know that by providing quality instruction and by setting high standards for student achievement and conduct we are preparing our students to be confident, responsible and productive citizens.

At Daly Grove School, we have access to new technologies that serve as powerful tools for students to access, analyze, create and communicate information and knowledge. We are a wireless site and a Portal school that enables students and parents to log on from any computer with internet connection, anywhere in the world. These technologies support our focus on learning, thinking, communicating, collaborating and working in much more personalized, integrated and efficient ways.

Daly Grove is also part of the growing worldwide community of leadership schools implementing The Leader in Me program, which is based on Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This leadership model is grounded in the belief that building cooperative relationships and nurturing responsibility, kindness and good judgment is the basis for a successful community of leaders encompassing our school motto of Working, learning, growing …….together.

As always, your voice is important and we appreciate your input, bouquets, and suggestions for change. The successful operation of a school requires the cooperation and understanding of everyone concerned. At Daly Grove, we believe that we can best achieve our goals by working collaboratively with our parents and greater community. As we embark in this exciting year together, we are confident that with your continued support, we will experience great accomplishments and success in developing our students as the leaders of tomorrow.
