​One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Parent societies are a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Parent Society

Meeting Dates/Schedules

  • Check our Calendar page for meeting dates.

The Fundraising Society is a registered not-for-profit organization that raises funds through Casinos under the authority of the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission. These funds are provided to Braeside School for a variety of educational materials and activities as approved by the Society and AGLC.

The Fundraising Society meets 3 to 4 times a year to plan upcoming Casinos, and review and approve spending of Casino Funds.

Additional funding is often provided by various Parent Society activities to supplement the cost of some of the learning experiences for students at our school. During the 2015-16 school year, because of the support of our Parent Society, Braeside School was able to provide multiple learning experiences that included all of the off-campus activities for grades K-6, as well as multiple artist in residency programs.

Did You Know?

Our last casino raised over $60,000. These funds are used to pay for School residencies such as Quest Theater, That Artist Woman, Circus Lady and more. We are also one of the only schools to use these funds for field trips. 

Volunteering for one of the casino shifts is easy–you even get a meal! Email Amanda.e.morin@gmail.com to sign up now!

RT @UsihChristopher: Student health is more important than perfect attendance and families are the ultimate decision makers when it comes to whether students attend school or not. If your child will not be attending, please notify the school and the absence will be excused. Thank you!
