Information for Parents

Funds raised go DIRECTLY BACK to Valley Creek School Council to help pay for student fun days, staff appreciations, student learning resources, and classroom enrichment materials. Every month you spend hundreds of dollars for things like food, gas, clothing, pharmacy, restaurants, electronics, home renovations, department stores, teacher’s appreciation gifts and so on.

All you have to do is pay for some or all of your purchases using GIFT CARDS bought at face value from FundScrips participating retailers and a percentage of every gift card purchased is contributed towards our school’s enhancement. There is no additional cost to you. When you order $150 in gift cards, you pay $150 and you get gift cards worth $150!

    out with all the gift cards required.

    cards and write the confirmation/reference number on the form. (contact our email
    if you aren’t able to do an etransfer and we can discuss another form of payment)

Ask family & friends to support our group?

We encourage everyone to invite their family members, friends, co-workers, workplaces and neighbors to participate in FundScrip as well. After all, they probably buy groceries and gas, just like you do. You could give them an order form and they can order at the same time, or just add them to your total. The gift cards come preloaded and are available in various denominations.

If you have any questions or are placing a workplace order, please contact Your Valley Creek Fundraising team at vcschoolcouncil@gmail.com

A HUGE thank you to ward 3 counsellor @JyotiGondek for answering ALL our questions. Your articulate, genuine, passionate responses allowed this group of Grade 6s to feel heard. #Democracy #Calgary #studentvote #RepresentationMatters #WeAreCBE https://t.co/elCA7Y7bdY

Last week, Grade 6 students 'met' with Mayor Nenshi to discuss democracy, municipal government, Calgary's future, and why representation matters. @nenshi spoke from the heart, and was candid and inspiring! #democracy #Calgary #civilsociety #RepresentationMatters #WeAreCBE https://t.co/noOJMGX0GU
