MS/SS Students are Supporting Holiday Heroes Toy Drive this Giving Season

This holiday season, both our  Middle and Senior Schools are partnering with the York Region Police to help raise donations in support of their 25th annual “Holiday Heroes Toy Drive''. This drive will be running from December 3rd to December 16th in the Middle School and from December 3rd to 10th in the Senior School.
Middle School (December 3rd-16th)
Students are asked to bring specific items, ranging from toys to gift cards, based on which House they belong to.
 
In partnering with the Holiday Heroes campaign, students are supporting Victim Services of York Region and The Salvation Army in helping change the lives of families in our community who have come into hard times. 
 
Over the next few weeks, each Middle School house will be responsible for bringing in much-needed items to support this campaign. Please see below for who and what each house is responsible for.
