Charity

Roland Michener School has been a community that consistently supports for many years. We like to streamline our efforts and make donating to charity meaningful to students and families. We have chosen three areas of focus:

  1. Our local community (Mayor's Food DriveVeterans Food Bank)
  2. National Interests (Terry Fox Run)
  3. Global awareness (Save the Rhino)

To coincide with our vision of becoming a 'Rhino' which embodies the characteristics we strive for with our students (Empathy, Excellence and Effort) we support the Save the Rhino campaign.  

A percentage of fundraising efforts by the school and our School Council and Society are donated to preservation actions that indeed assist those in saving the endangered Rhino. 


Partnerships in Education

The foundation our community involvement is our Partnerships in Education program, which matches each of our branches with a school in their area. A number of programs aimed at enhancing children's learning are utilized throughout the school year. As each branch and school develop a deeper relationship, they find innovative opportunities to work on unique programs and activities to meet their particular needs.

Reading Makes Sense

The Reading Makes Cents program encourages reading at home while teaching the basics of banking and saving. A First Calgary Savings volunteer visits the participating class and gives a brief description on the importance of saving. Then, each student is given a UNO Bank Book to record their reading minutes at home. At the end of the program, students add up the minutes they have saved in their UNO Bank Book and visit their branch to withdraw a special item based on the number of reading minutes saved. While they're there, they often get an exciting tour of the branch as well!
