"Proudly Soaring to Success"
Taken from Wikipedia: “The griffin, griffon, or gryphon is a legendary creature with the body of a LION and the head and wings of an EAGLE. As the lion was traditionally considered the King Of The Beasts and the eagle was the King Of The Birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The griffin was also thought of as king of the creatures. Griffins are known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions. In antiquity it was a symbol of divine power and a guardian of the divine.”
An eagle is a strong, powerful, proud bird. It uses its keen senses to help it survive. It does not look for trouble or danger. It is generally a symbol of freedom and strength. A lion is a strong, powerful, proud animal. It uses its keen senses to help it survive. Lions live quietly in “prides” working and sharing for the protection and survival of each other. A griffin is a creature that combines all of these fine traits.
At Glendale Public School, we believe our Griffins are proud, brave, caring, sharing, protective, strong, hard-working team players. Our Griffins are free and proud individuals that value others at our school, in our community and throughout our world.
Each year our dedicated parent community shows its generous support for our students. Whether through bake sales, clothing and food drives or larger gifts to support important programs for which we receive no provincial funding, we are fortunate to have such an engaged group of energetic school supporters.
We are a school that supports the use of technology to learn, communicate and now, to make things easier for our generous supporters by accepting online donations. The District School Board of Niagara is partnering with CanadaHelps to provide the community with a safe, secure online portal to donate to Niagara’s public schools. By donating through this portal, you will automatically receive a charitable donation tax receipt through email.
Using this portal, parents and community members can donate to our school’s general fund, which will go to support things such as our nutrition programs, field trips or other extracurricular experiences. There may be times when our school fundraises to support bigger ticket items such as playground equipment or a school sign. You would be able to support those initiatives by selecting our capital fund.
Accessing this portal is quick and easy. Simply visit our school website and click on the “Support Your School” link on the right hand navigation pane. It will take you to our donations page where you will find additional information about the process and a link to our customized site on CanadaHelps. Here you can direct your donation to a general or specific fund, make your donation via credit card, and instantly receive a confirmation and charitable donation tax receipt.
For those who would prefer to continue donating as you have in the past, we are pleased to accept donations at the school. Please note that we will only be able to issue charitable donation tax receipts for contributions of $25.00 or more.
If you have any questions about this new process, please feel free to contact me at the school at 905-735-5213. Thanks for your continued support of Glendale students!
