Maverick Madness

After 6 weeks filled with absolute basketball madness at German Mills, we are pleased to announce that the winning team of the 2019 Maverick Madness Basketball Tournament is the Home Team Hoops! 

They came from behind to beat the Jazzy J’s in overtime. Congratulations to both teams for making the final a truly epic game that Mavericks will remember for years to come.  

A HUGE thank you goes out to the Maverick Madness Committee! Their help before, during and after every game ensures that the tournament is efficiently run and the reason why it continues to grow in popularity and production value. We had over 50 students across grade 6,7 and 8 participate this year and hope to see most them back next year. Thank you to the amazing referees and student score keepers who ensured that fair play and team play were a part of every game.

GO MAVS!

Jump Rope for Heart

German Mills P.S. is pleased to be holding a Heart & Stroke Jump Rope for Heart event on May 3rd, 2019.  All money raised will support Heart & Stroke in their mission to promote children’s health and fund vital heart and stroke research.

Jump Rope for Heart encourages students to get active by skipping rope while they collect pledges for heart disease and stroke research. They also learn the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and giving back to their community. This year Heart & Stroke is striving to get 1 million children jumping in close to 4,000 schools across Canada. Let’s be part of it! 

We need your help to reach our School fundraising goal of $2500.

Please help support your child’s fundraising efforts by registering them online at jumpropeforheart.ca and send out donation request emails to friends, family and colleagues. Online fundraising is the quickest way to reach all of your contacts and online donors receive an automatic tax receipt. Plus, when students raise money online they can earn bonus prizes including a skipping rope*, and gift cards from Chapters/Indigo, Canadian Tire, Mastermind Toys and Amazon.ca. 

Please visit jumpropeforheart.ca and start fundraising today!

On April 17th, each student will be bring home a pledge envelope if you prefer to collect donations in-person. Please ensure that their pledge envelope is returned on May 3rd.

Thank you in advance for your support.
