The Monteleone family lives in Oakville. Mack, in Grade Six at Gladys Speers Public School, had gone to the Upper Oakville Shopping Centre web-site to investigate Mastermind Toys when he discovered the Mother’s Day photo contest. He submitted a wonderful picture of himself and his mom, Dana, on the Facebook site.
Mack says, “My mom is funny and likes to take me places. His sister, he also says, “is pretty cute” and he “likes to be good to her”! There is lots of love in this family and it shines in the picture Mack submitted. His mom, Dana, says that “Mack has a great sense of humour, is very energetic and enjoys his gymnastic and skateboarding lessons”. Mack says that he “loves reading and the library”. At school, science and gym are his favourite classes. He wants, perhaps, to be a teacher – like his dad! Congratulations!
