We would like to bring your attention to the following when you bring children to Sunday Dhamma School.

1) Pls find below the link for the email with respect to Dhamma School registration which needs to be submitted via online . Please note that all students must be registered by September 16, 2015;  Registration

2) We also kindly request you to read our Information document on Classes and Graduation Policy at  Information-document-on-Classes-and-Graduation-Policy..pdf

3) As per the dhamma school discipline, we would respectfully request from your kids for not using any electronic devices during the Buddhapuja and class times

4) We also highly remind you to check out the dhamma school web calendar at School Calendar for all the current and future events of the school. Hereafter, the school's mood of communication will be done with the web calendar.

As informed previously, we request your corporation on the following matters as well;
A) Please note to maintain silence or manage noise within the temple premises;
B) Please do not talk loudly when you are walking around the property close to our neighbouring properties;
C) Please control your children activities during the snack break as much as possible. If you can get children to stay close to the buildings it is very much appreciated;
D) Please be careful turning left onto the driveway when coming to the temple to drop off your kids and taking left turn when leaving the temple due to the blind spot on 80th Avenue;
E) It is always advisable to take right turn when coming to and leaving the temple for safety reasons;
F) Please control your vehicle speed when driving along the driveway. Respect other drivers. Safety is every one responsibility and we need all of your corporation to have accident free school year;
G) There are no marked parking stalls and limited amount of parking available. So, we need your corporation to avoid parking issues. It is advisable to use angle parking as much as possible by keeping one lane free at all time to maximize the available parking spaces;
H) Even though we have completed considerable amount of property clean up with the help of dedicated volunteers, lots of work are still to be done. Therefore, we request your participation in property clearing, landscaping and other regular maintenance activities  during your stay at the temple on Sunday's. If you can give your fullest support, we have no doubt that the temple premises will be a clean and peaceful place for all of us to enjoy.
