Fundraising

Fundraising at Terrace Ridge

At Terrace Ridge, we host a number of fundraisers each year. Some of the fundraisers benefit the school directly and some are done on behalf of other organizations.

Hot Lunch:

Our school council organizes and runs the hot lunches and snacks. The funds raised go to support a number of initiatives. Each year the school council provides a hot dog lunch for our Terry Fox Day and our Fun in the Sun Day (field day), provides $10 per student to off-set field trips during the year, and hosts the Craft a Gift Day. Depending on the amount raised, the school council will support other school needs. In the past, they have provided $500/yr for Musical Theatre, funds for musical instruments, library books, recess equipment, etc.

School Fundraising:

As a school, we have fundraised through various activities. We have pizza sales on select Fridays and we have sold apples to support our Eco Vision gardens. 

For Others:

- Terry Fox - 100% of the funds are given to the Terry Fox Foundation of Canada

- Giving Tree - 100% of the gift cards are given to families in need

- Jump Rope for Heart - 100% of the funds are given to the Heart and Stroke Foundation

Current Fundraising Priorities

Our fundraising goals are ambitious! (We have a few parents looking into establishing a Fundraising Society that would allow us to apply to run a casino.)

We will continue to fundraise through our Friday Pizza Sales and other programs such as FundScrip.

1. Recreational Education - For the 2023-2024 school year, we will be offering hip-hop dance, pound fitness, shadow boxing, yoga, and skating to all students. FUNDED

2. Soccer Field Redesign

a. Wilson Ball pits / Gaga ball pits

b. remove current soccer goals and replace them with small soccer fields

3. ChromeBook Evergreening - We have Chromebooks for grades k-3. These need to be replaced on a 5-7 year cycle.

4. Instrument Replacement and Repair - We have many older instruments that we are replacing or repairing. 

5. Physical Education Equipment - We replace equipment on a rotating basis to ensure we have high-quality equipment for our students to use.

6. Library Books - We host 2 Scholastic Book Fairs a year and our wish list keeps growing as students discover new authors and as favourite authors publish new books.

7. Field Trips - Our goal is to fund at least half of the cost of the grade 6 camp each year. We also want to offset all student field trips with $20 per student.

8. Furniture Replacement

a. replace teacher chairs - most of these chairs are 20 years old

b. replace the easy chairs at the front of the school

c. add soft furnishing to the kids' zone and library
