Special Ward Meeting



Happy Ho-Ho-Holidays!

It has been a very busy couple of weeks at Niagara.  ‘Tis the season for giving and this year the school was multi-tasking in the charity department!  Thank you to everyone who donated to our Bag2School clothing drive, The Giving Tree, Holiday Food Drive, and the classroom book share campaign.


The Winter Concert last week was a treat to watch with festive music and dance numbers, imaginative costumes and great decorations.  The addition of the ‘Feed It Forward Soup Bar’ flyer in each program was a lovely touch.


Today we had our annual Holiday Luncheon. Despite a couple of early hiccups, the event went smoothly thanks to our very special parent volunteers and school staff.  Thank you!  A special shout out to Mr. Martin who filled in for Principal Marsh (feel better soon!) and to Jerome for working his magic. Thanks also to Ms. Delamere for delivering the cakes and, as always, to Mr. Herrera. Thank you everyone for bringing in such a variety of dishes and providing an amazing meal.  The children all returned to class with full bellies, smiling faces and candy canes.  The leftovers were delivered to Strachan House (thanks Lydia!).



Have a wonderful winter break and Happy Holidays!


Holiday Luncheon

Don’t forget that Niagara School Council is hosting the Holiday Luncheon tomorrow!

The kinders will feast on pizza in the lunchroom while the graders will enjoy a buffet style lunch in the gym. Then everyone gets cake!

Bring in your savoury goodies before 11am.  If you need to drop off before 9am, put your dish either in the fridge or on the counter in the lunchroom (lower level off the gymnasium).  No nuts please and, if possible, list ingredients for those children with allergies.  Labelled dishes will be washed and ready for pick up by the end of the day.

We are trying to boost our school ECO status this year and are asking that students bring their own reusable water bottles.  Thanks very much!

This is a wonderful event that we all look forward to.  If you would like to help out please meet us in the gym around 10:30am.

Festive Feast!

Next week we’ll be having our favourite annual event at the school – The Holiday Luncheon!  On Thursday December 21st, the kids will all celebrate the season with a festive lunch and fancy dessert.


This year we are trying to be a bit more environmentally conscious and are asking that children bring their re-useable drinking bottles with them if possible. Thanks!

The Gift of Giving…

You may have seen the lovely tree in the entrance hall covered in paper baubles. If you look closely, printed on each ornament is a special request. A request for an item that would help a person in need.

The Garrison Creek Daycare is asking that we all pick an ornament and bring it back along with the item to put under the tree. It’s a perfect little ‘do good, feel good’ gesture to demonstrate the spirit of the Holiday.

The deadline is tomorrow so be quick!
