During the 2009-2010 school year we have been implementing the RECESS program which is a secure web-based academic networking site. RECESS is an on line virtual classroom that involves students in completing homework, blogging about classroom assignments, and maintaining a class calendar of assignments.
At the end of August the school hosts the special program "WIN", developed by our Settlement Workers for newcomer students and their families. The WIN program provides orientation programs for both parents and students. Parents recieve information about the TDSD. Students learn all about Fisherville so that they know what to expect during their first days in the school.

Some of the opportunities students have include: Student Council, youth lounge, peer mentors, leadership mentoring, leadership course through Parks & Recreation, Dare to Dream, Me to We, Free the Children, Aga Khan Foundation, SpeakUp, and ESP.
