Sheriff's Deputy and canine partner visit NSS 3rd graders
Niagara County Sheriff's Department Deputy Sean Furey and his canine partner Vedder visited third-graders at Niagara Street Elementary School on Thursday. The presentation coincided with the students’ Journeys instruction which had a story focusing on the relationship and duties of a police officer and canine police dog. The book is titled “Aero and Officer Mike: Police Partners.” Our third graders thoroughly enjoyed meeting a real-life police deputy and canine partners! Thank you Deputy Furey and Vedder!
Niagara Falls Kiwanis Club members Ron O'Callaghan, Margie Blakely and Nancy Chandler recently visited NSS third-graders to present each student with their own updated copy of A Student's Dictionary. More than 75 students received the dictionaries, generously donated by the Niagara Falls Kiwanis Club. Thank you for your support!
A special thank you to our school partners: The Italian Son's and Daughters of America for donating 60 T-shirts for our 5th and 6th grade chorus students. The shirts were proudly worn by the students while performing in the school's Holiday Concert prior to winter break! We appreciate everything our partners do to support our school and students!
