MRS Cheque Writing Fundraiser 21_22

As part of Maple Ridge School’s fundraising efforts in the 2021/22 year, we are launching a Cheque Writing Campaign.  In the survey sent out to our community earlier this year, 50% of respondents indicated they would like to support our school through a cash donation. This fundraiser will run throughout the month of March.

The CBE has mandated that Education Matters, Calgary’s public education trust, will process this type of fundraiser. They charge a 3.5% administration fee for donation processing in order to offset their operational costs. The rest of the funds raised go directly to Maple Ridge for school and teacher needs, such as technology, library books, gym equipment and other curriculum enhancements. 

To donate online, please click HERE.  If you would like to donate by cash or cheque, please email council for details.

We understand these may be very challenging times for many Maple Ridge families given the impact of the last 2 years. We are grateful for any donation that you are able to give and understand if you are unable to do so this year. With your help, our goal this year is to raise at least $50 per student, but a donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated.  Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20.00 and over.

Please note that there will be other opportunities in the coming months to support the school. We will be running a meat fundraiser later in the spring and a 50/50 in June.

Thank you for supporting Maple Ridge School,

Maple Ridge Parent Society

Thank you to those families who came out to the grade 1 celebration of learning today. They have been learning all about cause and effect by designing Rube Goldberg machines. They are then transferring their learning to what cause and effect looks like in an ecosystem.
