JUNE FUN LUNCH AND FUNDRAISERS

Fun Lunch- Friday, June 10

The last fun lunch of this school year, which is on June 10, 2022 with Subway, is now live on the healthy hunger website!  https://healthyhunger.ca/ The deadline for the same will be June 5, 2022 midnight! 

Please note, Fun Lunch on Friday, June 10 is being offered to Grade 1-6 classes and ONLY both Regular kindergarten classes (Ms. Dolan and Ms. Freestone) as these are the only kindergarten classes that will be in attendance over the nutrition break on that day.

We will be sending reminders closer to that day. 

Thank you for supporting this fund raiser throughout the school year. It shows the tremendous appreciation we have for our awesome teachers and staff:)

Have a great week ahead.

Loonies for Literacy:

Thank you to Marion Carson School Community for donating to Loonies for Literacy. We have raised over $260!  We are raising funds to invest into school literacy programs. Better than that – for every dollar raised by a school, a dollar will also go to a school in need through the generosity of community sponsors and contributions. The funds raised by Loonies for Literacy will be used towards literacy programs, like:

o Books for school libraries

o E-books or e-learning resources

o Library diversification

o Decodable texts, and so much more!

If you’d like to support Loonies for Literacy, donations can be made online at educationmatters.ca, by texting Literacy Marion to 30333 (online donations will be accepted until June 30) or by sending a cash donation with your child to school (May 31 is the last day to send cash donations to school).

Thank you for supporting public education in Calgary!

Jump Rope for Heart

It’s time to jump for joy — and help kids across Canada! Supporting kids’ health for 40 years, Jump encourages kids to be active. It builds healthy habits, boosts school spirit, and teaches social responsibility as kids fundraise for life-saving heart and stroke research.

From now until our event day on May 31, students will learn fun ways to get active for heart health while raising awareness and support for Heart & Stroke!

You can help us reach our $1000 fundraising goal in 1 of 3 ways:

Cheque Writing Campaign

Cheque Writing Campaign – It is that time again when we are requesting donations to our school in lieu of multiple fund raising activities. In the past parents asked that we try to ask for donations so that all funds go to our school instead of to another organization making profits from goods they are selling. On the linked document you will see the list of items purchased this past year and the plans for the upcoming year. This is strictly voluntary and we request that if you make a donation that it be within the means of your family's budget. In order to reduce costs, we are sending the form explaining the program through this email. Please contact Mrs. Cinnamon (dmcinnamon@cbe.ab.ca) by email if you would like a paper copy sent home. Please click the link to see the form.

If you have any questions you can reach your Marion Carson Parent Association at mcschoolcouncil@gmail.com
