The week that was… That wind is getting brisk! We are seeing lots of hats, coats, mittens and boots on our students as they continue to enjoy outside play time with games of soccer, tag and basketball all being popular. At our kindness assembly on Tuesday we welcomed both Tiger Jeet and Tiger Ali Singh to speak to us. Their message of giving to others who are in need during the holidays matched actions shown by our students. Our Youth in Action Team collected 2067 items of food last month and has begun a toy and clothing drive this month. Details of how to support the efforts of our students are outlined below. Two of our kindergarten classes took a trip to the CN Tower this week. The idea for the trip came from many of the students in the classes who showed excitement and a desire to learn more about towers. They read about towers, planned and built towers and capped off their inquiry with a trip to one of the tallest towers in the world. Have a great weekend.
Primary Classes - Winter Holiday Concert: For the past few weeks our students in grades 1-3 have been working hard on learning a song to sing for our Winter Holiday Concert.

Miracle on Main Street: Our school dancers will be performing at this year’s event! The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation is now making plans for its 8th annual "Miracle on Main Street" toy drive charity event presented this year by Team TigerCentury 21 Heritage Group. The donations raised each year go towards the purchase of toys, food and life essentials for families experiencing poverty via The Salvation Army, Halton Women's Shelter; children suffering from sickness at the SickKids and McMaster Children's Hospital; and school essentials, breakfast programs & mental health aids for local area public schools via the Halton Learning Foundation. To date the foundation has raised $1.5 million in combined sponsorships and donations over the past seven events. "The objective of Miracle on Main Street is to promote the spirit of giving among all faiths," says Tiger Jeet Singh Jr., President of Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation. "Sickness and poverty do not discriminate; neither should the spirit of giving." This year's event will take place on Monday, December 12th from 6am to 9am on a closed off portion of Main Street at Troy's Diner located at 295 Main Street in Milton. Breakfast will be served, carols will be sung, autographs and pictures will be taken with wrestling's living legend Tiger Jeet Singh, Canada's most famous hockey dad Walter Gretzky, former WWE wrestling superstar Tiger Ali Singh, members of the Maple Leaf Alumni and players from the Hamilton Tiger Cats. Town dignitaries along with members from the Halton Regional Police Services will be on hand to show their support!
