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 ( by email if you would like a paper copy sent home. Please click the link to see the form.

Thank you @JackJamesHS for sharing information about the history of Treaty 7 on the anniversary of its signing #WeAreCBE #WeAreAllTreatyPeople

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko
