Fundraising

We have several fundraisers at Nellie McClung to best meet every family’s ability to give in their own way. If you have an idea for a fun fundraiser please contact us at councilnellie@gmail.com

Where will your fundraising dollars go?

All funds raised support enriching programs for the children of Nellie Mcclung School. Nellie kids need the generous help of Nellie families to ensure these programs continue.

Examples of how our fundraising dollars are spent include:

  • Learning Through the Arts – funding artists from the areas of dance, writing, music, visual arts, media arts and drama to work in each classroom to promote a love of learning through innovative discovery of new knowledge and insights.
  • Field Studies – supports trips to places such as Glenmore and Fish creek Park, Safety City, Jubilee Auditorium, and the Glenbow Museum.
  • Musical Instruments – last year our PAC funds purchased a class set of chimes.
  • Physical Education Programs – last year funds supported the cross country skiing program with the Foothills Nordic Club.
  • Landscaping around new playground and naturalization areas.
  • Reading and Math programs that support ESL and enhanced literacy/numeracy in our school.
  • Social Programs – friendship and social language programs that support our social community at school e.g. Good Guys and Girl Power Program
  • Nellie University – Offers kids an opportunity to explore specific areas and diverse topics such as cooking, language, art, music, chess, robotics and coding/programing.
  • Library funding to keep our school library a top resource for our kids
  • and many, many more…

2021 ASCA Resolutions – HAVE YOUR SAY

2021 ASCA Resolutions – HAVE YOUR SAY

This year’s AGM will be held on April 25, 2021 (online). I am unable to attend this year’s virtual meeting but have arranged for another school to take our votes by proxy. As a result, we need to submit our votes on the proposed resolutions by April 23 at 8am. 

Any interested Nellie parent is invited to vote on the resolutions. I will tally the votes and compile a position for our school.

To have your say in this year’s online votes:

STEP 1) Review the resolutions in full through this link: 2021 Resolution Package:
https://www.albertaschoolcouncils.ca/public/download/files/173828

STEP 2) Cast your vote though this google form by April 23, 8am.

https://forms.gle/Y7DvGAKBkoHPJeHE7


The resolutions are voted on as is, with a yes or no vote. After you have reviewed the resolutions, please complete the google forms below and I will compile and submit our votes based on the majority for each resolution. 

I realize this is a substantial amount of content for interested parents to review. As your representative on PAC I am working toward having a dedicated council meeting in the future to discuss these resolutions at length each year in March when they come out. In lieu of that, this year I would like to share a resource document from a non-partisan, non-profit public education advocacy group fighting for the rights of all children to an equitable and accessible public education system. Although not affiliated with SOS, I and the chair of your Nellie PAC are in agreement with this voting guide for your consideration.

Thank you for your participation. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
