Thank you very much to the parents and staff that have supported our School Council by attending our meetings this year. We have benefitted from sharing ideas together, had great success with our casino and two fundraisers and enjoyed guest speakers and wellness presentations.
We would especially like to thank the following parents who devoted so much time and energy in their various roles:
Lynette S, our Casino Chairperson. She had a big job this year organizing the casino volunteers with a month turn-around time from the start of the school year. This role comes with lots of paperwork and time constraints and takes a very organized person, especially to do it in such a short amount of time.
Jennifer S, our Fundraising Coordinator. This year we added a second fundraiser in the spring, so Jennifer had the busy task of running two fundraisers, both of which were extremely successful.
Shoya W, our Volunteer Coordinator. Thank you to Shoya, a new parent who immediately stepped up to help in this vital role, for doing such an amazing job organizing volunteers for the various programs and activities at the school!
Jan L and Juanita B, our Music Program Liaisons. These two worked tirelessly for the music program hosting and organizing many successful events with other music program parents. They came to meetings each month to share what they were doing and their enthusiasm is contagious.
Marnie H, our Treasurer. Thank you Marnie for keeping our books and accounts in order and letting us know each month where the money was going and what the school had left to spend from our fundraising efforts!
Melissa R and Martine M, our Secretaries. Thank you ladies for keeping the minutes at our meetings, otherwise we may never remember what we've planned to do!
Thank you also to the many, many Volunteers who attended field trips, supported the band, helped with the drama production, drove students for athletic competitions, assisted with fundraisers, supported students with reading, worked in the Learning Commons, helped in the classrooms, framed artwork, assisted with PAT exams and many other activities at the school. We have a wonderful volunteer base at Willow Park School and love our school community.
Thank you for your support!
Wanda L and Danielle K
School Council Co-Chairs
PS from Danielle: A special thank you to Wanda L, our Co-Chair who is moving on from Willow Park School. You have volunteered in many areas at our school over the years and were a fantastic support to our School Council. We will miss you!
