It's hard to believe that winter break is almost here! Time certainly flies and it's hard to believe that we are already in the month of December. As we wind down for the winter holidays, it's important to reflect on how much has been accomplished so far in the 2016-17 school year.
In my role as board trustee, I have had the pleasure of visiting schools and seeing how staff and students inspire hope. From fundraising for the Terry Fox Run, United Way Giving Day and Hurricane Matthew to coming together to share how we #ChooseAction, we all have the ability to unite for common cause and help others in need. I am proud to see how many students and staff working together to inspire success, confidence and hope, each and every day. This holiday season, I encourage you to lend a helping hand, whether it is a kind gesture, a simple hello or a random act of kindness. These small actions can make a huge impact on those around us.
Thank you to students, staff and community members for your hard work during the first few months of school. Have a safe, fun-filled and relaxing winter break!
