Fundraisers

Gourmet Cookie Dough/Muffins

School Council has once again kicked off a Cookie Dough Fundraiser.  As this is usually the only fundraiser School Council runs, we encourage everyone to participate and help support the goal of 5 boxes per student.  All funds raised go directly to supporting the students in our school.  And remember, not only do you get the opportunity to help support our school, but there are great prizes to be won!  Thank you for your support.

 As we are nearing the end of the campaign, we ask that all students and parents do their final push for sales and start collecting all orders and monies.  Cheques are accepted and are to be written out to "ROLAND MICHENER SCHOOL COUNCIL" and dated no later than November 15, 2019.  Delivery of cookie dough and muffins is slated for December 5, 2019.  Please stay tuned for communication on pick-up times.  RMS does not have the resources to store ANY orders, so we ask that all orders be picked up in a timely manner.  If you would like to volunteer during delivery and order pick-up day, please sign up HERE (https://volunteersignup.org/PWYJW).


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!
