The last day of school before the Christmas break is always a day filled with excitement. Well, maybe not for everyone. In your school you may have students who are less fortunate than others and today won't be as happy for them. They come from families that don't have a lot of money for gifts or special trips or maybe they come from broken homes. This week I have seen the kindness of our staff reach out to those families with gifts of toys, clothes, food and most importantly love. The smiles on their faces lit up the school and made me proud to know the staff at Tweedsmuir P.S. So to all the teachers, administrators and support staff around the world I want to thank each and everyone of you for the hard work you put into every day so that the students in your care succeed. Have a great Christmas and a restful break with your families.
A great Christmas just wouldn't been the same without a scene from my all time favourite Christmas movie "A Christmas Story". Enjoy!
