From December 17th to the 20th, we were thrilled to showcase the musical talents of all of our students from Grade One through to Grade Eight. The music department faculty: Dr. Tiller, Mr. Renglich, and Mrs. Keeler prepared our students to shine as they performed an array of classical family favourites to celebrate the holiday season. We also heard stunning performances from Primary and Junior Choirs, and the Junior Apassionata Singers.
We would like to thank the very dedicated students who shared in the festivities as they performed at the Markham Santa Claus parade and the Unionville Candlelight parade. Principal, Mr. Treherne and Vice Principal, Mrs. Meevis also joined in on the fun on the UMS float and participated in the music performances.
As part of UMS’ commitment to charitable donations, the school matched the $1000 raised from dress-down days to donate to the United Way. We were proud to carry the stacks of gifts and toys that were collected as we contributed our offerings to the TOY MOUNTAIN and were a part of the live broadcast on CTV. Our FIVE with D.R.I.V.E campaign was also a tremendous success! The assembly was extremely heart-warming and the representative who visited our school was truly overwhelmed by the generosity of our UMS families. Our ME to WE Rafiki sales were also a tremendous success; we look forward to receiving our UMS customized hand beaded Rafikis from Kenya in the New Year.
From our hearts to yours, we truly thank all UMS families who have helped to make the holidays a pleasant one for so many families in need.
