What is Envirathon Servathon?

Envirathon Servathon (ES) is a fundraising campaign where you sponsor Rockway students to spend a full day doing GOOD WORK – either environmentally-helpful jobs (e.g. planting trees) or community service jobs (e.g. sorting clothes at a thrift store). The entire school community, students & teachers alike, head into the fields, forests, rivers, soup kitchens and thrift stores to spend a day working together for a good cause! See the 2017 ES Job Site list here.

How does the fundraising part work?

Each student fundraises for their Envirathon Servathon day. The donations they collect from you go toward enhancing Rockway’s campus and programs. Students help decide how the money is spent. Sometimes items are for academic-specific purposes (e.g. the zero emissions electric truck in our Design & Tech department), and sometimes they are to enhance the school-at-large (solar panels for our roof).

Why is ES important?

ES is a win-win for all involved – our Earth, our community, and Rockway.

Thanks to your support:

  • Our earth and community benefit from a full-day of free “green” labour and support for local organizations.
  • Students experience a day of hands-on, community-building work that teaches them the importance of volunteering.
  • Rockway benefits from being able to improve our facilities and equipment with campaign proceeds.

How can you sponsor a student?

Students receive their Sponsor/Pledge Forms on April 11. To sponsor a Rockway student, simply let the student know the amount you wish to donate, along with your contact information for receipting purposes  (donations of $10 or more are eligible for tax receipts).

As a sponsor, you can make a cash donation, give a cheque (made out to Rockway Mennonite Collegiate) or give by credit card – online, by phone (519-743-5209) or at the office during school hours. Students will NOT collect credit card information.

If you Pledge to donate, please pay your pledge (cash, cheque, credit card) by May 10thUnpaid pledges will be invoiced.

Thanks for your support!
