Classroom Giving Catalogue

The generosity of our school community continues to play an important role in enhancing student learning by allowing staff to continue adding 21st-century tools, environments and programs at CFIS.

Once again, we are seeking monetary support in a variety of areas through our annual Classroom Giving Catalogue. This gives parents, faculty and alumni a role in transforming the educational environment at CFIS as all proceeds go to student learning. 

Fundraising in 2016-17 helped CFIS provide diverse seating options in classrooms and enabled further progress in technology and innovation. This year’s catalogue reveals some items repeated from last year. For example, we require funding to fully implement initiatives such as classroom sets of executive functioning and math enrichment toolkits, 21st-century furniture and a wireless microphone system for our assemblies and musical. 

Among this year’s priorities is resurfacing the two playgrounds with a poured rubber-mat surface rather than the existing pea-gravel, which freezes and is off limits to students until significant thawing occurs. CFIS received a Community Facilities Enhancement Program (CFEP) grant of $65,000 to help pay for the new surfaces, but we need your help to cover the full cost, of $170,000. Numerous opportunities await your support.
