There are many ways you can contribute to our school’s success, and make a difference for our school and our students. In our school, this can include providing in-kind donations, contributing cash and lending expertise and technical knowledge. Connect with our principal on what may be appropriate. For more information on ways to give to CBE, visit Donate ​on the CBE website.​​​

Week of Giving – December 9 – 13 - This service learning activity is meant to teach our students about the importance of giving at a time of year when receiving is often on their minds. This also is voluntary and we want parents to know that if your family is not in the position to donate, your child can still participate in the fun activities. Please click the Week of Giving link to see the information and schedule for the week.

Thank you for your support! In total we collected two vehicles full of food, toiletries, mitts and toques and $1164. Wow! Marion Carson Families you are awesome! Thank you to Claire and Marcus for driving the donations down to the Mustard Seed. When they delivered the items they both were very touched by the experience. One of them said, "I pass on 'Blessings' and 'Merry Christmas' from the Mustard Seed to all the staff and students at Marion Carson. Your generosity and the appreciation from the folks at the Mustard Seed has touched my heart in a very profound way."

VOLUNTEERS REQUIRED - Marion Carson Parent Association – Elbow River Casino - Dec 19 & 20

 As you may know, Marion Caron Parent Association will be hosting a Casino Event on Thursday, December 19 and Friday, December 20, 2019 at the Elbow River Casino.  

 These events only occur approximately once every 2 years and typically generate between $65,000 to $70,000 for the school.  All students at Marion Carson will benefit from the funds raised through this event.

We need to find 42 volunteers to staff the casino over the 2-day event.  No training is required.  All welcome including grandparents and friends. No CBE security clearance needed.  This is a great way to meet other parents, support the school and should be lots of fun.

 Please follow the link below to the sign-up page. Ideally, we fill the volunteer spots by the end of November to ensure a successful fundraising event.

Cheque Writing Campaign – It is that time again when we are requesting donations to our school in lieu of multiple fund raising activities. In the past parents asked that we try to ask for donations so that all funds go to our school instead of to another organization making profits from goods they are selling. On the linked document you will see the list of items purchased this past year and the plans for the upcoming year. This is strictly voluntary and we request that if you make a donation that it be within the means of your family's budget. In order to reduce costs, we are sending the form explaining the program through this email. Please contact Mrs. Cinnamon (dmcinnamon@cbe.ab.ca) by email if you would like a paper copy sent home. Please click the link to see the form.
