New Niagara Sports Team Shirts!

Thank you everyone for supporting our school fundraisers for new school ‘pinnies’.  Whether it was buying movie tickets and popcorn or yummy baked goods, the School Council raised enough money to have new “Niagara Olympians” team shirts made for our students.

The team shirts are worn for all kinds of athletic and school spirit events – volleyball, soccer, basketball, ultimate frisbee, rugby, badminton, cross country running, track and field, Terry Fox run, Folk Fest.  Everyone will now have the same kind of shirt, in the same colour, and each has a number printed on the back.

A special thank you to Linda, Mark, and Brad for taking the initiative and seeing it through.  For working as a team….passing the ball…..shooting a slam dunk….and scoring big points for the Niagara Olympians!

It’s that time of year again…the Niagara Street School & Garrison Creek Daycare are joining forces to fundraise for important extra-curricular activities and support.

The Spring Fling Fundraiser will be held on Saturday, June 3rd from 10am-2pm at the school. We hope you will all join us for this event which promises to be a lot of fun with bouncy castles, games, silent auction, lots of food, face painting, balloons, Raffle, 50/50 Draw and lots more!
We are asking for parent volunteers and donations for the auction and raffle to make this day possible.
