How does the money raised get used?
All of the proceeds from our fundraising efforts go towards enriching learning opportunities for the students at Clinton, such as the purchase of classroom technology, books for the library, gym equipment, greening of the school yard, and our unique art program ARTsmart where visiting artists work with students on different art projects.
Here are just a few examples of ways fundraising helps enhance our children's learning experience at Clinton:
1. S.T.E.A.M./maker space
Last year's Parent Social raised more than $6000 for the library and funding of the new S.T.E.A.M./Maker Space!
2. ArtSmart Program
3. School library
Funds raised at last year's Parent Social paid for all of the planned library improvements.
4. Dance, fitness and cultural programs
5. Fullfilling classroom/department needs
In past years, $100 was given to each teacher to use at their discretion within their classroom. Money was also given to each division (primary and junior) for shared resources (ie. math and science materials etc) and levelled books for classroom reading.
6. MUSIC DEPARTMENT
7. GYM EQUIPMENT / SPORTS TEAMS
8. MATERIALS FOR VARIOUS SCHOOL CLUBS
2017-2018 Fundraising Goals

Another possible goal for the coming year will be to raise funds for the Schoolyard Improvement Project.
