You keep hearing about our amazing Fundraising Association and all that they are doing to raise money.
Have you ever wondered where that money goes?
In their last meeting they approved the following:
$2500 to fund travel for field trips.
This will pay for a bus for each class who chooses to take a field trip within the city this school year.
$1000 for Discover E.
DiscoverE delivers engineering and science classroom workshops in a fun and interactive way! Workshops are presented by a pair of enthusiastic, highly-trained University of Alberta student instructors who bring in all the materials and take care of the clean-up. Student participants will get a take home project to keep or complete an engineering challenge. Instructors also act as role-models in higher education to the youth in workshops.
All workshops are designed to enhance Alberta Learning Curriculum topics through exciting demonstrations, interactive experiments, and a fun hands-on activity.
$2500 for a Dancepl3y residency.
"DANCEPL3Y School Programs are specifically designed to promote positive mental health, meet curriculum expectations for H&PE and Dance and guarantee to meet Daily Physical Activity requirements. Voted #1 on the Discovery Education Channel! DANCEPL3Y is an innovative and award-winning program that allows students to explore simple movements from a variety of dance styles from around the world (Hip Hop, Urban, Ballroom, Bollywood, Lyrical, Jazz/Funk and more!). DANCEPL3Y’s unique interACTIVE class style is paired with a positive coaching philosophy where every student can claim their “Bubble of Awesome”. Forget 5-6-7-8 or complicated right foot/left foot choreography – there are only 3 Rules of PLAY: Be Positive. Be Fun. Be Yourself"
Last year all of our students also participated in this Dancepl3y residency, funded through the efforts of our Fundraising Association.
Our Fundraising Association works extremely hard to raise funds to support our students. They are a small but mighty group that counts on the support of the entire parent population to do their work.
Please consider what you as a parent can do to help support the Association and through them your children at Christina Gordon.
Our Christina Gordon Fundraising Association executive is made up of:
