Congratulations to Deseronto Public School students for demonstrating caring for their community.
Principal Bill Launderville challenged students in December 2010 to raise $160 ($1 from each student) for the local Angel Tree Program. In supporting the Growing with Character trait of humour, Mr. Launderville agreed to dress as a female for a day, if the students met his challenge.
Deseronto Public School is located 37 km east of Belleville in the community of Deseronto. The school was built in 1956 to replace an older building dating back to 1870. The student body of 170 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 is from the local community. The school celebrated its 50th anniversary in the fall of 2007.
A large playground with abundant equipment, a gymnasium complete with phantom sound, a computer lab and a library with a SMART Board enrich the school to support student success and continuous improvement for all. The School Council funding support for the school library and a community partnership with the public library ensures the availability of resources and provides positive support for the students of Deseronto Public School.
