We look forward to your support for another successful school year!




​Fundraising

Enhancing our children's education is important to us. Every year, the PAC and the school work together to determine what the priorities are, how to get funding, and how best to utilize the funds.

We feel that it is important to share with you where our fundraising dollars go. Here you will find details on what the priorities are this year, what we did last year, and what programs are in progress in order to reach our goals.


​What are we fundraising for this year? (2014-2015)

This Year's Goals:

#1.  Sports Jerseys

#2.  Hip Hop Dance Program

#3.  Playground

#4.  School Events

#5.  Ongoing Items

The main priorities that we are fundraising towards this year are as follows:

Sports Jerseys - Our school has various sports programs and the jerseys will be an opportunity for our students to show their school pride. 

Hip Hop Dance - This will be the 3rd year that MacCorkindale will be having a week-long hip hop dance program for all grades.

Playground - Some of the playground equipment is aging and will need to be replaced in 2016.  

School Events - Events like the on-site pumpkin patch and Grade 7 camp.

Ongoing Items - Including technology devices, scholarships for MacCorkindale alumni moving onto post-secondary education, and teachers' supplies to support education.


What did we do last year? (2013-2014)

Last year PAC was able to provide funding for MacCorkindale's school garden which includes a total of 5 planters. (Thank you to parents and others in the community for tending to the garden over the summer!)  In addition, PAC provided funds towards various school events like the hip hop dance program and pumpkin patch.
