In 2016 A.D.S. Elementary became a Community Learning Centre school (CLC) as part of the Richmond, Danville and Drummondville CLC. The extended CLC includes A.D.S. Elementary, Drummondville Elementary, St. Francis Elementary and Richmond Regional High School.
Schools that are CLC invest in partnerships that provide a range of services and activities, often beyond the school day, to help meet the needs of students, their families and the wider community. Our aim is to support the holistic development of citizens and communities.
Some of our CLC Community Activities include:
- ADS Food Pantry
- Online Reading Buddies
- Ready, Set, Grow! An early years program
- ADS Community Movie Nights
- Parent Workshops – Bedtime Routine Workshops
- Summer Knights Read – Summer Book Distribution to grade 6 and high school Students
- Seniors Outreach – Tea & Talk, Involvement in the Culture for Seniors Project
Many classroom projects are supported by the CLC, including:
- “I Belong” Projects
- Artist Inspire Workshops
- Intergenerational Cooking Projects
- SHINE Workshops
- Community Garden
- School-wide Emotion Management Project (Zones of regulation)
- Book Muncher

At the Richmond, Danville and Drummondville CLC, we greatly value our many partners, who actively contribute to student success and community vitality. Without them, many actions carried through the years, would simply not have been possible.
On behalf of our CLC, the Danville community and A.D.S. Elementary School School, we would like to say, Thank you!
