I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.

Spirit of the Peace Dancers

Thursday, 22. January 2015 by Doreen McDonell

Spirit of the Peace Dancers joined us on Wednesday for an active afternoon of Traditional Native Dancing hosted by SD#60’s  Pat Jansen.  Many dancers from the district along with elders shared their love of dance and celebration.  Taylor Elementary’s very own Teigan Bigfoot and her brother Kalem (now at middle school) were part of this lively group.

101 Operation Christmas Child boxes

Thursday, 22. January 2015 by Doreen McDonell

Students involved in Taylor Tigers Leadership Program spent a December afternoon putting together shoeboxes.

History: Operation Christmas Child was started in 1990. In 1993, Operation Christmas Child grew and was adopted by Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian organization run by Franklin Graham. To date, Operation Christmas Child has collected and distributed over 100 million shoebox gifts worldwide. In 2013, Canadians donated more than 664,000 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for hurting children around the world.

How it works: Each shoebox is filled by Canadians with hygiene items, school supplies, toys, and candy, and is given to children regardless of gender, race, or religion.

In 2014, shoeboxes will be distributed in Uruguay, El Salvador, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Guinea Bissau, Venezuela, Equatorial Guinea, Costa Rica, Guinea, Haiti, Nicaragua, Chile (including Easter Island), Senegal, and Ukraine.
