HWDSB is thrilled that the 10-year partnership with the Hamilton Bulldogs has again meant that thousands of our students dove deep into a meaningful book and attended the School Day Game today against the Barrie Colts.

The game – and the entire program – brings so much energy to our Board. We celebrate the great young players on the ice, and their leadership when it comes to community support for literacy.

This aligns to our priorities of Student Learning and Achievement and Partnerships. Partnerships like this result in lasting learning experiences for students.

Over its 10 years, we have featured many writers and books including the famous Hockey Sweater, The Magic Hockey Stick and this year The Almost Epic Squad: Mucus Mayhem by Kevin Sylvester.

Students in grades 4 to 6 participate in curriculum-based focus exercises featuring the book. We have collaborated with Telling Tales and the author to create multimedia presentations to be played on the day of the event (related to the theme and our partnership with the Bulldogs). As a reward for hard work, students get to come to the Bulldogs games where the Bulldogs connect the teachings into sport which is promoted throughout the game.

A big thank you to all involved! And congratulations to the students who earned their celebration today, through literacy!
