On Sunday, student success lead Ms. Wrigglesworth accepted the award for “Halton Hills & Milton School of the Year” for 2018–19 from the Halton Food for Thought organization on behalf of the MD school community.

Ms. Wrigglesworth runs MD’s breakfast program which provides nutritious food for all students—free of charge—every morning.


In accepting the honour for Breakfast Program of the Year, Ms. Wrigglesworth thanked everyone for their assistance in running the award-winning program with her.

The breakfast program is a huge undertaking and it wouldn’t be possible without everyone’s help and support. I want to thank the 10+ morning teacher supervisors, Cobs Bread helpers, Mr. Jones and Mr. Sterpin putting up peg boards and organization, Ms. Craik for arranging the re-organization, sports teams who bag and distribute apples, Ms. Lamarre keeping us financially in check, Mr. Busse painting an auction chair and front storefront and the numerous student volunteers!! This would also not be possible without Ms. St-Hilaire who does a huge amount of our shopping, cooking, and planning!

The award will soon find its home in the Breakfast Club room.
