Enrichment funds collected by CPAC are provided to teachers to support classroom extras and initiatives that enhance your child’s learning environment. The funds are distributed in two ways:
1) Each teacher is provided with a specific amount of money calculated on a per student basis, which is used to support purchases that would not otherwise be funded in the public education system – examples include supplies and resources used for art projects, crafts, and science projects, supplemental learning resources such as books, and student prizes such as stickers, bookmarks, and so on. These funds are particularly important for those times that teachers help students create gifts for their families (for example: holidays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day).
2) The school is provided with an Enrichment Fund budget for larger classroom-based purchases, such as educational programs and materials that can be used school-wide or shared across multiple classrooms, and to support our non-enrolling teachers (such as learning support, fine arts, counselling).
As of December 1, 2017, CPAC collected $6,690 in enrichment funds this school year, which is pooled across the school.
With 480 students enrolled at Cleveland, the majority of the funds will be distributed to classrooms calculated on a per student basis, with some remaining funds being allocated to the general Enrichment Fund described above.
Our teachers and school administration are very appreciative of the support from Cleveland parents. On behalf of teachers, administration and CPAC, we are sending a big thank you to everyone who has contributed.
And for those who haven’t, it’s not too late! Please visit MunchaLunch to donate today.
