Fundraising

School Council is very supportive in contributing to the school's extra- and co-curricular activities. Among other things, we have provided playground equipment, buddy benches, outdoor classroom, sports jerseys, Lego robotics kits, technology, sound and lighting equipment, choir music, stage stairs and arts performances for the students.   

Please see our Achievements page under About Us section.


Fundraising for 2020-2021

Wow, what a challenging year has 2020 been!  With new COVID-19 restrictions in place, our traditional fundraising routes like the hot lunch program cannot be pursued for this school year.

Let's change those challenges into opportunities!

The parent council are exploring new creative ways to raise money for our students and support current/long-term school enhancements.  


School Council's Letter to Parents on Fundraising Update

 Dear Parents,

School Council has been hard at work implementing new fundraisers. We wanted to explain the reason why we have been sending out more online fundraisers than in past years.

The bulk of our fundraising is normally generated by our lunch programs, such as Pizza and Subway. As an example, pizza sales raised $12,221 last year from Sept to March. This contributes to a large amount of funds that goes back into FMPS which provides new programs and initiatives for our students.

Due to the pandemic all lunch programs have been on hold, which has severely cut School Council's funds. We did have a small amount reserved from previous years, but it is being quickly depleted.

To date, we have raised $1,785, with $911 from our Indigo fundraiser going towards the Library. Just over $10,000 in funding has already been allocated this year to virtual field trips & presentations, Chromebooks, new sports equipment, new musical instruments, and funds for the library.

We hope that you might find something within our fundraisers that interests you, while also benefiting FMPS students at the same time. We realize this has been a tremendously difficult year for many and financial contributions may not be feasible, however, if you would like to make a donation to FMPS School Council, a tax receipt can be provided.

Thank you for your continued support,

School Council
