Fundraising

Learning to Fundraise

Purpose:

This project will examine financial literacy through the objective of fundraising. Fundraisers often help pay for enrichment opportunities at school, but students who are involved in sales can also benefit from the experience. This project will help you develop skills in understanding potential customers, handling money, and delivering goods. On a personal level, these types of experiences can help to improve confidence, improve communication skills, learn about personal responsibility, and practice math and financial skills.

Project Proposals:

Create a proposal for a fundraiser that a large portion of the Minischool students can participate in. All proposals need to contain the following information. You need to submit one proposal for each fundraiser.

  • Timing: Specifies the dates of the fundraiser
  • Location: Where will your fundraiser take place?
  • Materials: What do you need to bring for the fundraiser?
  • Set-up: What do you need to set-up on the day of the event?
  • Sponsorship: Is anyone making donation of materials to support your fundraiser?
  • Cost: What do you need to buy for your fundraiser?
  • Preparation: What do you need to prepare for your fundraiser?
  • Goal: How much do you plan to make from this fundraiser?
  • Parent Support: Indicates that a chaperone over the age of 18 will be present for your fundraiser.
  • Signatures: There needs to be a place for yourself, your parent/guardian, and teacher to sign.

Getting Approval:

The proposal must first be approved by Ms. Neumann. Once she has signed off, then it must go to student caucus for school approval. Any discrepancies will be discussed with Mr. Wozney.

A field trip form must also be completed by every student taking part in the fundraiser and submitted to Ms. Neumann before the event takes place.

During the Fundraiser:

           Please document a list of students who are helping with this fundraiser and where their portion of the money raised will be going. (Ex: Iceland Trip or Charity/Organization) This distribution of money raised should be indicated in your budget at the end. The teacher responsible for the fundraiser will be collecting the money made at the end of the fundraiser and will be depositing it in Alpha’s Field Trip Fund until the end of the assignment. At this point, money will either be distributed to parents or a cheque will be sent off to the appropriate charity chosen for this assignment.

After the Fundraiser:

After each fundraiser, a detailed budget and individual student reflection must be submitted to Ms. Neumann as a statement of your completion. The budget should show everything you spent to make this fundraiser happen, the money gained from this experience, and distribution of the remaining funds. The 1-page reflection should talk about the process, outlining one success, one challenge, and two sources of improvement.

Objectives:

  • If you are planning on going on the Iceland Fieldtrip, your goal is around $1000
  • If you are not planning on going to Iceland, your goal is around $500, however the money will either go towards an Iceland Scholarship or a Charity of your choosing.

Assessment:

This project will appear on your term 2 report card. Your assessments will be on:

  • Reflected on personal financial literacy skills related to fundraising.
  • Created a proposal to host a fundraising event.

Creative Presentations in Electricity!

Coming into the new year, everyone had their creative juices restored after a long winter break. In order to harness this creativity and use it to its fullest potential, Ms. Neumann has challenged us to make a presentation about the current war between Thomas Edison, and Nikola Tesla. However, this was not to be just an average presentation, but rather, she challenged us to create a creative and different presentation that is engaging, doesn’t have any negative views on these scientists, and has to be full of accurate facts that show how they were as scientists. As the presentation time rolled around, we saw all sorts of different and creative means to show off this newly acquired knowledge. Those presentations ranged from videos, to drawings, to memes, to personality test, and even a roll of film.

 

The videos we saw in class were mainly focused around “dank memery”. The likes of Sam and Nathan showcased their talent to create original, funny content while still making it educational. Their audio was clear and easy to understand. Peter and Josh also created a video which was much more tame but still memelicious nonetheless. Both groups were able to finish and present a true masterpiece during class, and proof of it is that the entire class enjoyed it very much.

Harry and Shaw-Ern made a creative twist on YouTuber “Jacksfilms” video “THE PRIVILEGE QUIZ”. They ask a series of questions which all have 3 options to answer with. Depending on which answer you chose, you’d get a certain amount of points and by the end the total number of points you have accumulated will determine whether you are more like Edison or Tesla. The majority of the class were smack dab in the middle, between Edison and Tesla.

Quinlan, Celina and Sunnie all did amazing work for their presentation. Quinlan and Sunnie both drew Edison and Tesla’s faces and then added a lot of information around it. Sunnie’s was very clean and elegant whereas Quinlan focused a lot more on the information. I’m still not sure if Quinlan intentionally made Edison look like one of the moai statues on Easter Island, but it was a nice touch. Celina created a short story were Edison and Tesla are attending a wizardry school, and a competition to use electricity effectively put Edison and Tesla up against one another. Everything in this category was very well polished but the Grammy goes to Celina for the inclusion of Edison and Tesla as bug eyed anime characters.

The memes created by Brian and Spencer are worthy of being included in the next edition of Meme Review (link in the description). Many lunchtimes were put into the making of these top quality memes. The editing was done very well, and there is definitely no lack of creativity when it comes to the vast selection of memes. Everything from “do you know da wae?” and “understandable, have a great day” made this a very interesting and enjoyable presentation.

The last presentation, by Chloe, featured a fake roll of film with pictures drawn onto it. In other words, each major scene in Edison and Tesla’s life was summarized by a picture, and text, all written on one frame of the film. This was done very well, and led people to believe what it would actually look like if it were played in a movie theater.

All in all, having a creative presentation at the start of the year was a great idea, and resulted in some amazing projects.
