Goals for 2022/2023 Year Fundraising

During the 2022/2023 school year, the council has been working to set up long-term and short-term fundraising goals. 

Short Term Goals:

Our short term goals are to provide access to funds for things students need in their day to day schooling. This will include things like outdoor toys/equipment and activities, STEM items for classrooms, science materials, books etc. The time-line for these short-term goals are to happen within the school year.

Long-Term Goal:

We have been made aware that there are some improvements that the school requires which take greater amounts of funds and longer to achieve. For example, currently, the sound system in the gym needs improvement to make school assemblies and public events more enjoyable. The sound system has been professionally assessed and some minor changes were able to be made for the meantime, but the system is outdated and it is requiring change. Thus, it was determined in Council that the sound system would be the next major long-term fundraising focus for SPS. 

It is a large sum. To make it more manageable, the project was broken down into 3 phases. 

The first phase will be our primary focus, which is to replace the main speakers and sound board. 


To achieve long-term goals, we’ve decided to change slightly how the funds from fundraising are distributed. We will strive to create fundraising events specifically for the Sound System, but in addition to those few events, a portion from any fundraiser (excluding grade 8 trip funds) will be dedicated toward the long-term goal. Because this is a specific goal, the long-term funds will carry forward into the next school year until the goal is reached.
