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:
S.T.E.A.M./maker space – The 2017 Parent Social raised more than $6000 for the library and funding of the new S.T.E.A.M./Maker Space.
School library – Funds raised at the 2017 Parent Social paid for all of the planned library improvements.
Dance, fitness and cultural programs
Fullfilling classroom/department needs – In past years, $100 has been 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.
Gym Equipment / Sports Teams
Materials for various school clubs
Schoolyard Improvements – currently we are raising money to improve our schoolyard, slated to begin in 2019
Clinton School Council raised over $40,000 for the 2016-2017 school year. See the full financials below for more information.
