We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Dearcroft Community for such an amazing event on Friday December 7th.
Thank you to our supporting sponsors at Ten Thousand Villages who helped raise funds for two great causes, all proceeds that were raised during “gifts from the heart” market place will be going to global artisans from all over the world that will help put food on the table, provide schooling for children, and clean water. “Gifts from the heart” raised $2000 and we are all so appreciative of everyone’s effort in supporting such an amazing organization that continually gives back. Fifteen percent of these proceeds will go towards the Ocean School Initiative.
We would also like to thank our community partner My Gym of Oakville who provided all the gym equipment and programming for the evening, so that Dearcroft students had a fun outlet to jump their sillies out! We also appreciate the efforts of the Junior High students for providing all the festive games for the younger students to play.
Once again, Jon and Katherine Vellinga made our parent lounge a huge success with Zirkova Vodka holiday cocktails. Denise and Chris Handscomb, the people behind the lovely charcuterie board, the veggie tray, and sweets joined them. Dr. Denise Handscomb is a naturopathic Doctor, and clinic owner at Abaton Integrative Medicine and Chris Handscomb is a Financial Investment Advisor & Family Wealth Management.
Last but certainly not least we would like to thank the special man in the red suit for making a special stop from the North Pole (we all know who he is… Santa!) to spend some quality time with our lovely Dearcroft students. It was very magical to have you!
Thank you to our parent volunteers who came in during the week to help transform Dearcroft into a Winter Wonderland full of festive fun. To the parents who were able to provide sandwich trays, snacks and gifts for all the classroom baskets, we are so appreciative. This is such a generous school community and we are certainly grateful for everyone’s contributions! Proceeds raised during the raffle were $1,300, all going towards the Ocean School Initiative.
On behalf of the Dearcroft Staff, we wish you all a wonderful holiday.
