Jingle bells cover FINAL

Congratulations to students at St. Mary’s Catholic School in Mount Forest!

They are the winners of the draw for a free full day in the school with me!


St Mary's Mount Forest


Draw was held at the Bookshelf Cinema on Saturday December 13th.

I’ll be spending a full day doing whatever they wish. I’ll even be principal if they want, but somehow I don’t think that will be happening!

Consolation Prize of books and Porcupine Box Set donated by Scholastic went to Victory Public School in Guelph.

Choosing a winner from the video entries wasn’t easy.


Winner of a visit to their class for singing of Dashing Through the Snow went to the choir of St. John’s Catholic School in Arthur.  Congratulations to teacher Joyce Peloso and her group.

I’ll be sharing a drawing class with them in the New Year.

Dashing through the snow – Small

Runner up was St. Mary’s in Mount Forest.



Thanks to Scholastic there were prizes for those in attendance. Winners are pictured below with smiles and prizes.


Thanks to everyone for entering.  Over 75 ballots from area schools were entered for the draw


Thanks also to all the teachers who at a very busy time of year took the time and effort to record and send their entries for the song contest. (One entry came all the way from Airdrie Alberta!  Something special will be coming their way.)




A special thank you to the great kids in Grades 1 & 2 at Central Public School in Guelph who helped launch this contest by singing with me, and graciously continuing when I was the one making mistakes.


And a final thanks to both the Bookshelf in Guelph and Scholastic Canada for their enthusiastic support.
