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…
