Legacy Bricks for our Outdoor Learning Garden were installed in June 2019: We sold
engraved 4 x 8 bricks for $50 in 2018 as part of the final phase of our Outdoor Learning Garden by the south blacktop behind the gym. Many current and former students and staff were excited about leaving their legacy at Mohawk Gardens and we held a special dedication ceremony for Amanda's Garden.

October 20, 2018: Blue and orange decorations greeted hundreds of guests who visited our school on Saturday, October 20th from 12 to 4 pm for our school's 50th anniversary celebration. We are thrilled that so many people enjoyed touring the school, the memorabilia and decade displays, family fun zone, photo booth and of course, the cake! We would like to thank all of the volunteers and those who donated/loaned us items for our displays. Special thanks to Mrs. Haagsma and the choir for performing outside at 2 pm (before the rain!) and we also appreciated the presentations by our MC (and former student) Rylie Scott, HDSB Ward 5 Trustee Amy Collard, Mayor Rick Golding and MPP Jane McKenna and the greetings sent from MP Karina Gould. The reunion committee presented our new Principal, Martha Martino with a new white horse mascot and the key to the school to begin the next decade! Thanks also to Superintendent Rob Eatough and Ward 5 Councillor Paul Sharman for their support of our special event. Attendees greatly enjoyed the Get Your Own Taters food truck, Napoli Pizza, Nothing Bundt Cakes (who donated a portion of their sales) and complimentary coffee and hot chocolate from Tim's Horton's (5353 Lakeshore Rd.). We would also like to thank Phil Pritchard for donating a hockey basket won by the Avon family and Andy Franjic for bringing his white Ford Mustang for some special photos. It was a day full of Mustang pride!
