Ongoing Fundraisers and Supporting Your School:
Thanks.png
Parental and community support for the school is greatly appreciated and enriches the lives of students. By supporting the school in whatever way you can (even just sharing a link to this page with friends/family) you help support extra programs and opportunities for kids in the arts, athletics, leadership and community involvement!



Indigo Gift Card:
In partnership with Indigo/Chapters, FPSA is pleased to again be offering a great way to support the school library at no additional cost to you. By purchasing Indigo gift cards via our link (below), Indigo will make a donation equivalent to 20% of the value of your purchase to the school library. Last year this program generated over $1000 in investments to the school library reading materials for students. Please feel free to share this link with others!


Say Cheese!
Back by popular demand, the Summit Alternative School Council is once again organizing a St-Albert cheese fundraiser to raise money to enhance school programming at Fisher Park Summit Alternative School.  You can place your order online at http://dites-cheese.ca/en/campaigns/fpsa-fall-2017.  Simply put your name and address at the top of the form, and enter your child’s name and homeroom in the “salesperson” field – and then select the cheeses you want.  $2.75 from every unit sold goes back to FPSA, to help pay for student trips and other resources at the school!  If you prefer to submit a paper order, complete the form and have your son or daughter drop if off at the school office by Friday, October 27th; payment can be made by cash or cheque (please make it out to Summit Alternative School Council).  The cheese will be delivered to the school and should be ready for pick-up the week of November 13th.  Watch the school website at www.fisherparkps.ocdsb.ca or the Parent Council Facebook groups for specific day and location of pickup.  Order your favorite cheese today -- or try something new -- and help your school at the same time!


Special Requests / In-Kind Donations
From time to time, teachers and seek out speciality items to make creative learning opportunities happen, or to otherwise enhance opportunities for kids. Sometimes we are seeking out materials that you may have collecting dust, or time/expertise that you could contibute to an initiative. Your consideration of these special requests are greatly appreciated.


Current Requests:


​Brass keyed locks and four digit number combination locks ​Some of our classes will be participating in an "Escape Room" activity later this year, and we are currently designing the challenges that they will have to solve to move on​​​​ from stage to stage. ​Eleri Morgan (eleri.morgan@ocdsb.ca)
​Scooter Parking Lot ​With many students riding scooter to school, FPSA provides and indoor area for students to leave scooters. We are currently looking for someone who could oversee construction of a "scooter parking lot" to keepo the scooter organized. A great project for handy folks! We have a design in mind but are very open minded. Samples ​Tim Hawes (tim.hawes@ocdsb.ca)
​iphone 5S or Android phones running version 4.1 or higher​ ​FPSA has received a large donation of virtual reality viewers ("Google Cardboard") via a Canada150 project along with great Canadian History content to interact with. The viewers require a cell phone to go inside of them, so we are seeking out any old (but working) devices that are perhaps sitting in a drawer collecting dust. ​​Eleri Morgan (eleri.morgan@ocdsb.ca)
Lightening cables to charge ipads​ ​Charing cables for ipads are frequently needing to be replaced. If you have upgraded or changed your technology at home, and have extra "Lightning" cables we could certainly put them to good use. ​​​Tim Hawes (tim.hawes@ocdsb.ca)
Lego ​This year FPSA will be starting up a number of "Maker Space" activities with kids. Donations of lego (which we use to interact with various programmable robots) is greatly appreciated. ​​Eleri Morgan (eleri.morgan@ocdsb.ca)
