​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.​​

Update from School Council Chair: Casino Success!!!

A big shout out to Monique G., our Casino Chair, and the 22 parents who filled the volunteer positions at the Casino Fundraiser! This is such a unique opportunity to raise a huge amount of funds in just two days! Our On-site Adviser estimated that our efforts on Sept 10 & 11 would bring in about $55,000 for our kids! Amazing! While some of the shifts vary in length each shift raises about $2000.00. Below is how that amount breaks down per volunteer! Some parents did two shifts! 

These are our $4000 earners!

Thank you also to everyone who signed up to be back-ups. Luckily all of our position holders were able to make their shifts which allowed things to run smoothly. I learned a lot at this event - volunteer roles are crucial and hold the Casino Operator and the Alberta Government accountable to the community. It was  great experience and I hope to see you at our next Casino Fundraiser in March 2023.

So Grateful to Our School Council and Parent Society!

Thanks Again!

Our soccer balls have arrived!  All classroom books have been ordered and have just started to arrive. To the right you will see what one grade 3 class ordered.

Again, THANK YOU!  We appreciate all the support you provide!

Thank you School Council and Parent Society!

Grade 1 students have been working with the Bee Bots. Not only are they learning to code, but they are learning how to:

  • persevere through challenges
  • work in groups
  • share thinking around programming
  • think from another perspective (that of the bee and it's turns)
  • leadership is emerging within the groups

Without your financial support this would not have been possible!!
