HWDSB secondary schools are hosting their annual Grade 7/8 Information Nights for students and parents to learn about all the exciting secondary school options. Visit http://ow.ly/9hac50jBHFY for the date and time of your local school. We look forward to seeing you!
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!

American Band Young the Giant visits Flamborough Centre
By Owen & Charlotte, Grade 8 students at Flamborough Centre 
On November 7, the staff and students of Flamborough Centre elementary were treated to a performance by the American rock band, Young the Giant. Band members: Sameer, Jacob, Eric, Payam, Franćois and Ehson put on a dazzling show; the students and teachers alike enjoyed their wafting tones and harmonious solos. 
The students had the opportunity to ask the band questions like “what inspired you to make music?” Sameer answered, “when I was younger I thought most people loved music as much as I did, and most people didn’t. So when I grew up, I wanted to make people happy through music.” They finished the concert with two more songs from their four albums. A big thanks to Mr Bhaduri for organizing this event and getting his relative Sameer to play for us.
We will focus on improved data, professional learning and relationships to support Positive Culture and Well-Being in all HWDSB schools and departments. Learn about our celebrations and future plans bit.ly/2zzGHW4
