New Niu Valley Middle School Marquee Installed

Today, a custom-designed marquee was installed on the planter box. It replaces the brittle one and the digital sign. Our new sign accurately identifies us as an International Baccalaureate World School, and sports our school logo as well. Kudos to PCNC Joanne Imada for coordinating this project. Look for signage for our school podiums as well! That is in production as well.

Niu Valley Middle School Courts: Site of 2012 Hoops for Heart

Seventy students who are participating in today's Hoops for Heart competition had solicited donations from the community, faculty, family and friends.

Parents took off from work to provide "people power" as well. This was a team effort!
