Hillhurst School has the opportunity to raise more than $65,000 at an upcoming casino, and we need your help to make it happen. The opportunity to volunteer at a casino comes around every 1½ to 2 years, and Hillhurst is scheduled for Monday, June 27 and Tuesday, June 28. Over the two days, we need almost 40 volunteers to cover different shifts.
The effort is worth it. The School Council puts all of the proceeds towards extra resources and experiences that enrich learning for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. For example, casino funds can help pay for field trips, science kits, ukuleles, books, art supplies, soccer balls, skipping ropes, hip-hop instruction, Lego robotics, artist-in-residence programs, iPads, laptops, Smart boards, Makerspace materials and more. Simply put, the impact is amazing.
Volunteers don’t need any experience to volunteer for the Casino. We won’t be dealing cards or managing games, but doing behind-the-scenes work with assistance from advisors who are there to help. We know parents are busy — if you are unable to help, perhaps an aunt, uncle or grandparent is available. The shifts are daytime or evening, approximately 8 hours long. If you can help with just one shift, you alone raise approximately $2,000!
