About The WOM School Council

We work closely with the school to fundraise and run extra-curricular programs to enrich the lives of the students at WOM. We have a voice in school policies and keep informed about board and province wide changes, keeping WOM involved in the wider education community.

Memberships on school councils are open to all parents and guardians of children enrolled at the school, as well as community members, the school principal, teachers and other staff.

Our meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. in the school library. Everyone is welcome!

What We Do

Join Us!

We Need You!

We can't do all the great stuff for the WOM community that we'd like without the support and help of enthusiastic parents and guardians.

We're always looking for volunteers to get involved. We have everything from small jobs - just a few hours here and there - to jobs that require a day or two of planning work, to jobs that need a few hours a week.

If you can help in any small way, we'd love to hear from you!

Terry Fox Run at WOM

Date: September 28, 2017

Time: 13.00

Location: WOM

Since 1998, W.O. Mitchell has participated in the annual Terry Fox Run. Over the past 18 years, W.O. Mitchell has donated over $78,000 towards cancer research. Thank you everyone for your generous support! Our goal this year is to raise $3500.

This year the run will be on Thursday September 28, 2017 (rain date Friday September 29) at WOM. The route will be supervised for your child’s safety.

Please have your children dress in red and white clothing to celebrate the 37th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope across Canada and Canada’s 150th Birthday.

Please fill out and return the pledge form with your donations by September 29, 2017. Hard copies of this form will be available in the main office if needed. Carefully complete all of the required information as receipts for $20 or more will automatically be issued.

Online pledges can be made at our school online pledging page at www.terryfox.ca/.

Your involvement makes a real difference as we help our children understand Terry’s belief that “Dreams are made if people only try”. Looking forward to a great day.
