It's 50/50 time! Like most things, fundraising looks different this year. Normally we would be selling 50/50 tickets at our school events like dances and concerts but this year we are taking our draw ONLINE! We are very excited to offer this fundraiser virtually this year - so be sure to share online via social media and email with your friends and family!
We are currently fundraising for 20 new Chromebooks for the grade 2 and 3 classrooms, as well as 10 new iPads for the kinder and grade 1 classrooms. We were able to purchase 40 new Chromebooks earlier in February as a result of all your support - THANK YOU SO MUCH! But we need to keep going to finish replacing the other older units whose functionality is failing.
This year's 50/50 is a little different than a typical 50/50. The winning ticket will win a minimum GUARANTEED amount of $500 or 50% of the total tickets sales - whichever is GREATER (the maximum will be $1250). So lets try to sell out to get that pot up!
The winning ticket will be drawn in person by the WRPS president and treasurer on March 16, 2021 at 3pm at the school. Winner will be announced at St. Patricks Day online Dance!
Please note that only Alberta residents who are age 18 and over are eligible to purchase tickets.
We thank you so much for your support!

The Wild Rose Parent's Society is made up of our student's parents, our Principal and Assistant Principal.. Together we provide valuable support to a wide variety of school activities. We do a lot of fundraising throughout the year to support field trips, special programming and equipment for the school in order to enrich our chldrens' learning. We are currently trying to fundraise to replace a significant number of aging pieces of technology (~60 chromebooks and 8 iPads). Having operable and reliable technology is important in facilitating an optimal learning environment for our students. We do hope that you will consider supporting us. Be sure to share with all your friends and family as the 50/50 is open to all Alberta residents age 18 and over! Thank you so much!
