There are many ways you can contribute to our school’s success, and make a difference for our school and our students. In our school, this can include providing in-kind donations, contributing cash and lending expertise and technical knowledge. Connect with our principal on what may be appropriate. For more information on ways to give to CBE, visit Donate ​on the CBE website.​​​

Fundraisers & Donations

Our Parent Society’s major fundraising event is a Casino night, once approximately every year and a half.  Our Fundraising Coordinator on the School Council is Chris Paavola.  He will request parent/caregiver volunteers to participate in this fun event closer to the date of the next Casino night.

Our School Council runs Fundscrip twice a year.    Notices with order forms are sent home to parents/caregivers in November, and in April/May.  This fundraiser sells gift cards to participants, with a portion of each sale coming to the school.

Christine Meikle School has participated in the Farm to Table fund raiser this year.  This program sells fresh vegetables to participants at a great price point and is a perfect match for the school’s healthy eating initiative.  There are a few different options available to purchase, along with the option to purchase a package that goes to the Calgary Food Bank.  Vegetable orders are delivered prior to Thanksgiving.

Donations

Christine Meikle School happily receives donations from anyone who wishes to support the work our school does with our students. 

  • Cash/Cheque donations over $25 will receive a tax receipt.  Please make donation cheques payable to the Calgary Board of Education, and write “Christine Meikle School donation, charitable number 10683-0128-RR0002” on the memo line.
  • In kind donations are also gratefully received! Please contact our school principal to learn what items are needed at this time.  Tax receipts can also be provided for in kind donations
