Thanksgiving Messagefrom the Director of Education, Toronto Catholic District School Board
It is appropriate that the virtue we embrace for the month of October is gratitude. This month we are reminded to focus on the many things in our lives for which we are grateful.
In our personal lives it may be the precious gifts of our families and friends and the support and love that we share. In our professional lives it may be the support of our colleagues and the challenges of our jobs that inspire us and give us a sense of accomplishment.
As Canadian citizens, we are grateful that we live in a peaceful and democratic society where opportunities abound, individual freedom is valued and diversity is encouraged and respected. (source)
