SOS – Support Our School!

Bridlewood School Council and Bridlewood School Fundraising Society (BSFS) desperately need volunteers to support Bridlewood School!

Do you have an extra couple of hours a month? Volunteer with the Bridlewood School Council or Bridlewood School Fundraising Society.

Bridlewood School Council is a group of representatives who work together to effectively support and enhance student learning.

Bridlewood School Fundraising Society raises funds for the school. This money has been used to replace worn-out technology (SMART boards, 30 Chromebooks), pay for enrichment activities (author-in-residence, Cathy Beveridge), new supplies for the Kindergarten classrooms, hand chimes and ukuleles for the music room, and build the school’s playground! This year’s Casino fundraising event raised $62,000! Email BridlewoodSchoolCouncil@gmail.com for more information.

Volunteering at Bridlewood

Parental involvement is a vital component of school programs. At Bridlewood we encourage parents to become involved in our Volunteer Program, School Council and/or Fundraising Society. Volunteers play an important role. Through volunteer assistance, we are able to enhance the educational opportunities for our students. We recognize the value and encourage the use of volunteers in our school. 

All parents are welcome to volunteer. Generally volunteers assist teachers by providing service on a long- term or short-term basis. Some examples of support service activities are listening to children read, making math games, assisting on field trips, assisting in sports events, play days, working in the library and helping with fund-raising events.

We welcome volunteers in the classroom, on field trips and with certain tasks at school or at home. Certain activities or field trips would not be possible without the active participation of our volunteers. Contact us about ways you can volunteer with our school.

Visit the CBE website for more information on volunteering, including the required registration and Police Information Check. (Please note, guest speakers or visitors to the school, and parents/guardians assisting their own child only are not considered to be volunteers and do not require a police information check.)

Students at Lester B. Pearson High School and many other schools took part in @Moose_Hide Campaign on May 12. The nationwide event raises awareness for the #MMIWG and violence against women and children. Read more on our website: https://t.co/M73qVEWEOi #WeAreCBE https://t.co/Iwolb09uVS

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
