Cancer Fundraiser

Warren grew his hair for 2 long years until it was long enough (8 or 9 inches) to be cut, and has been fundraising donations for the Cancer Society. He presented his cheque to the Cancer Society on January 15th, and they gave him a tour of the ‘Wig Bank” where his blond locks will soon be offered to a Cancer patient. He cut his hair back in November, and he raised a total of $1027.00

Way to go Warren!

Casino Fundraising | April 2019

One of the biggest fundraising opportunities for MAPSS is coming this spring. On Wednesday April 3 and Thursday April 4 we will volunteer for a Casino event and we NEED YOUR HELP! Come out for a shift with family and friends (volunteers do not need to be members of MAPSS) and have a GREAT time while helping MAPSS secure the funds needed to continue to support our Montessori schools. We will be recruiting volunteers starting in the New Year.

Did you know that casino events are the biggest fundraising opportunities for MAPSS, raising an estimated $70,000 for our Montessori Schools?

What is Montessori Alternative Public School Society (MAPSS)? MAPSS helps make public Montessori school possible in Calgary. CBE provides equal funding to all schools. However, this funding does not cover the cost of Montessori Materials integral to Montessori education. MAPSS raises funds to purchase Montessori materials, provide Montessori teacher training and purchase Montessori parent resources for each school.
