The Chalmers’ School Council Rocks!
Last year our School Council organized and led so many amazing events for our students and families: Book Fair, Value Village fill-a-bag, Clothing Drive, Art Night, Movie Night, Staff Appreciation Lunch, Used Technology Drive, Candy Grams/Lollipop Flowers, and the Used Book Give away.
In addition to these wonderful experiences and initiatives, our Chocolate Bar Fundraiser was also hugely beneficial and assisted School Council in raising over $10 000 for our school. The proceeds raised by Council were used to purchase a new electronic screen for the gym, a media cart, Chromebooks, and reduced the cost of student excursions by a total of $3000.
On behalf of School Council, thank you for supporting Chalmers’ students and families.
We challenge you to participate in School Council this year. Come out to our first meeting in September. Get involved, share your voice, and contribute to our amazing school community!
