Math Updates for Parents
A huge thank you to the following who volunteered at the Boomtown Casino in Fort McMurray on Sunday and Monday, Nov 9 & 10, as they represented the Edwin Parr School Council Fundraising Society:
Linda Baert , Les Hatherley, Karon Friesen, Bruce MacDonald, Jenene Ganske, Lori Bandola,
Anita McNallie, Nancy Schilling, Tammy Tangedal, Sean Morrison, Wade Hicks, Yda Burger, Angie
Bellingham, Annette Weinrich and Joy Young
Special thanks to the two community members Les and Joy each who do not have children in EPC yet stepped up to help their local school community group experiencing a volunteer shortage. Much appreciation to those parent volunteers who took time off work or juggled their family’s child care to make sure EPC students did not lose this opportunity to benefit from gaming proceeds. Last but not least, big thanks to the four EPC staff who volunteered their personal time to allow us to reach our quota of required Casino volunteers.
At this time we would like to recognize and thank the Society’s dedicated Treasurer, Paula Gabourie, who prepares all pre and post Casino documents among all her other treasurer duties. We would also like to thank the few parent volunteers and Mr. Morrison that meet periodically throughout the school year to review funding requests from the different EPC groups.
EPC student groups that have benefited in the past from casino funds are but not limited to, the annual Grade 9 French Quebec trip, the 2014 Graduating Class, Drama groups, athletic groups, EPC library, cheerleading and football. Some weight room equipment that is used in each phys .ed class has also been purchased with gaming funds in the past. Some repairs and annual inspection expenses on the EPC owned buses have also been paid from Casino proceeds.
The remaining scheduled Fundraising meetings are Mon. Jan 5, Mar 2 and May 4. Each meeting is held in the EPC library from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. The EPC Parent Council group meets immediately after at 6:30 p.m. in the same location
