​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

Our Parent Society is Known as the   

Edgemont Parent School Association (EPSA)

The Edgemont Parent School Association is a registered society formed to handle the money that is received and spent by the School Council. It is necessary for us to have this society, as it is a requirement from Alberta Gaming to host a Casino, our main and largest fundraiser.

Annual Donation Cheque Writing Campaign 2022-2023

Dear Parents:
For the past twenty-four years, the parents of Edgemont School have chosen to support an annual donation
in lieu of fundraising activities. Some of the benefits to this method of fundraising are:
• the school receives the entire amount, instead of only a portion of the money
• it saves time – no door-to-door sales, no phoning friends and relatives
• funds are used in the school in the current school year, directly benefiting your child
• it may be eligible for a matching corporate gift program
• donors receive a tax receipt as EPSA is a CRA registered charity

More information can be found in the Edgemont Annual Donation Letter 2022 on the right hand menu. 


Meeting Dates/Schedule

Meetings are held after the School Council meeting in October, November, January and April.
