Our JTT Holiday Basket Update:

On Friday, December 11, 2015, we assembled the incredible outpouring of Tuck generosity in our small gym for all to experience and celebrate together.  Our JTT Holiday Basket 2015 program ran from December 1-11.  Each class adopted a Halton family and set out to ensure their family would have an AWESOME holiday.  The students collected gifts, socks, food, gift cards, etc. for their special family.  The response was overwhelming!!!! … A HUGE THANKS to our Tuck community for helping our children make a positive difference in the lives of so many.  

Together we collected over 1046 gifts and 1545 nonperishable food items to support 31 Halton families over the holiday season.  Many thanks to the Salvation Army and our tireless parent volunteers for helping to facilitate this opportunity for our students and staff.

We wish you all a safe and happy holiday with family and friends.  We look forward to another incredible New Year of working and growing together in 2016!

Yours truly,
The Staff of John T. Tuck School
