Fundraising makes an important contribution to the vitality and growth of the École Ross Road School community.
Fundraising provides our school with the financial means to acquire and/or upgrade equipment, supplies, material and programs beyond normal assistance covered by the District and Province. The additional funds are an investment in our school to enhance programs, policies and activities.

A new Fundraiser – COBS Dough Raiser
Ross Road Elementary School is now part of the COBS Dough Raiser program!
The Dough Raiser program is where COBS helps raise money for our school.
Throughout the year they offer our families and friends the chance to raise funds which are donated back to Ross Road Elementary.
How it works:
Each time you (or your friends and family) purchase products at COBS Bread at Park & Tilford, mention you are raising dough for Ross Road Elementary – the staff will process 5% of the total sale back to your school.
The Cobs donation to Ross Road Elementary will be presented at the end of the year. It’s as easy as that!
This fabulous ongoing fundraiser is something that parents actually need while reducing the schools lost-and-found pile and earning 20% commission. It’s a win-win-win! The program is designed to be as easy as possible. Have a look at the potential labels in the brochure below; www.oliverslabels.com/rossroad

Special 15% off discount for Ross Road families, and with every kids and adult poncho purchase, Moojoes will also make a contribution back to our PAC. Input code ROSSPAC with your online purchase to receive your discount. Ethical. Sustainable. Eco-friendly. Moojoes was established in 2009 with the belief that you can achieve all three of these things while still making a great quality product. Operated out of North Vancouver by moms who feel passionate about creating unique products that allow people to maintain an active and safe lifestyle in the great outdoors. We wanted to design gear that would suit busy lifestyles in rainy Vancouver while also having a minimal impact to the environment. And so, the rain ponchos were born. They are easy to wear, affordable and made with materials that meets the strict European environmental Oekotex Standard 100. https://www.moojoes.com/
