Fundraisers & Donations

March 4, 2021

Hello Balmoral Families,

As members of the School Council Executive, we all hope that your families are managing to meet the many challenges that this school year has presented. The students seem to be thriving and putting a huge effort into maintaining a healthy and happy school community!

Based on the uncertainties of COVID19, we have held off on any fundraising this year, as many options present certain challenges. However, as a community we all want a positive and successful educational experience for our children, and to that end we are reaching out to families now.

Keeping in mind the restrictions and limitations we are currently under, School Council has chosen to run a cheque writing campaign to raise funds for Balmoral School. 100% of the funds raised will directly benefit our children and the school community. We are asking all families who are able to consider donating $10. If your family is unable to contribute, please do not worry about it.

All funds raised will go into the School Council general account, which allows for support of in-school activities and directives that are not able to be supported through the funds generated through our Casino.

You can contribute by writing a cheque made out to Balmoral School Council and send it in an envelope to the school with your child, submit via e-transfer using treasurerbalmoral@gmail.com email address, or you can simply put the cash in an envelope and send it to the school with your child. Please ensure envelopes are addressed to School Council.

We look forward to the many opportunities that will be offered to the school community through this fundraising endeavor.

Sincerely

Arti Singh-Kumar
School Council Fundraising Chair

RT @SASCBE: Our Grade 3/4s had a hands on experience building birds houses after learning about the importance of birds in Calgary. Birds are often seen as spiritual messengers who bridge the natural and spirit world in Indigenous cultures. @DClovis https://t.co/7DoX3d45Ca

RT @CJMCBE: Our Grade 5 students explored Weaselhead Flats today. We learned so much about wetlands, plants, and animals. We studied aquatic invertebrates and saw so many different birds. Thank you to our guide and to our parent volunteers 😃 #WeAreCBE https://t.co/H26VYcj1EY
