Thank you so much to our WPS community for supporting our school and students this year. Our School Council meetings were well attended each month by parents and guardians interested in hearing what is happening at our wonderful school. We also hosted guest speakers who shared presentations on executive functioning skills, ADHD in children/teens, stress and anxiety management for youth and more. We plan to continue to bring in guests who will address issues facing our students.
We hosted two very successful fundraisers and have an upcoming casino June 30th and July 1st. We couldn't do it without the support from all the many volunteers who give so generously of their time and the families who support their students with the fundraisers. Thank you!
Also a very special thank you to those who have held positions on our School Council executive this year. Our wonderful secretaries Trina and Nancy who record the discussions at council meetings, Lacey who keeps the financials in order as our treasurer, Jennifer for her tireless work on organizing the fundraisers, Lynette for the HUGE undertaking of organizing and running the casino fundraiser, Juanita for always keeping us informed of all the happenings of the WPS music program, Dawn for finding volunteers for school events and Angela for assisting with getting the Wellness Committee up and running.
At our AGM in May we elected a new council executive but there are still roles that are vacant. We still need a Vice-Chair, Volunteer Coordinator and Casino Coordinator (there will not be a casino in the 2017/2018 school year but we do require someone in the role.) If you are interested in being a part of the best School Council in Calgary, please send us an email! We would love to have you join us.
Thank you to all who joined us at our meetings this year. We love our School Council meetings and enjoy the time we spend together while helping to make this the best school environment for our children. Enjoy your summer with family and friends and we look forward to seeing you in September!
Danielle and Karen
