Fundraising: Our PTA generously supports teaching and learning at our school. They work hard throughout the year to raise funds through various initiatives. Our recent Fall Community Barbeque raised almost $9000.00! Thank you to Scotiabank, our major sponsor, for their very generous support. Last year they raised almost $19,000.00. Items purchased for our students and teachers using these funds include: registration fees for math competitions, books for classroom libraries, resources for math, games and puzzles, musical instruments, portable electronic piano, EAL learning resources, butterfly kits, cooking & baking supplies, digital camera, microscope slides, fees for visiting authors, microscopes, technology (apps and software subscriptions), scientific calculators, book cases, computer speakers, spelling bee registration, pedometers, outdoor activity equipment, etc. Presently the PTA has a number of fundraising projects available for parents and community to support.
