Fundraisers & Donations

Sundog Lunches/Snack

We are excited to be back for another year of Sundog popcorn snacks! There are ten planned snack events for students and staff. The Healthy Hunger website will allow you to place your orders and pay online throughout the year or all at once. To register your child(ren) and be able to order for these special events, go to Healthy Hunger and enter each student under their teacher's name. If you already have a username and password, your account is still active but you will need to set up each child in the new class for the 2021-2022 school year. 

Tentative deadline order dates:

  • Thursday, January 13, distribution on January 18/19 : Kernels popcorn
  • Tuesday, January 18, distribution January 24 : Coco Brooks pizza
  • Thursday, February 10, distribution on February 15/16
  • Thursday, March 10, distribution on March 15/16
  • Thursday, April 21, distribution on April 26/27
  • Thursday, May 19, distribution on May 25/26
  • Thursday, June 23 distribution on June 28

Due to Covid-19, along with current restrictions for volunteers entering the school, we are not offering hot lunches currently.  Snacks will undergo a “quarantine” period in the school prior to classroom sorting and student delivery.  Orders can be changed, cancelled, or added to until the deadline date.  Refunds/adjustments are issued through the Healthy Hunger website to the account you used to make the payment.  We will be posting reminders or informing parents of any changes to these dates on the Sundance School Council Facebook page and the Sundance School website.

We want to thank our vendors, school staff and parents for the great success and support for this fun opportunity. If you have any questions, please e-mail Sherry T. or TeNari V, Sundog Lunch Coordinators, sundoglunch@gmail.com

No Fuss Fundraising from your home - 2021-2022

Sundance School has been a “fundraising-Free” school for over 15 years!  Rather than asking families to sell entertainment books, chocolates, or other goods and services, we ask for a monetary donation (personal, corporate, or both) to our school.  

This school year continues to look different for students, parents and staff. Money raised from donations will help to provide resources and programs to enhance mental health and well-being and enrich student learning. Staff are looking into a variety of programs offered virtually, and tools that can supplement outdoor learning. With your help, we can continue to bring enriching and fun experiences to the school! 
In 2020-2021, money raised through Education Matters went towards Carnaval: Sundance’s Sugar Shack, maple treats for students and the Ice Man demonstrations, and towards the drumming residency. 

Donations of $20 or more are eligible for tax receipts. Please make your donation by November 30, 2021.

Donations are processed through Education Matters, CBE's Trust for public education then directed to Sundance School.

For donations from individuals: Click here: Donate to Sundance School. An electronic tax receipt will be sent to the email address provided.

For donations from organizations/corporations: Click here: Donate to Sundance School and choose 'Organization Donation' under the Donor Information section. An electronic tax receipt will be sent to the email address provided.

Thank you in advance for your donation! Together, we can help make this another fantastic year of learning for our students.
