One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Under the School Act, a parent society is a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. The school principal is not part of this group. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Our parent society is know as the William Reid Fundraising Society.

WRSFS is a registered not-for-profit organization that raises funds through Casinos, under the authority of the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission, and the biennial Oktoberfest fundraiser. These funds are then allocated to William Reid School for a variety of educational materials and activities as approved by the Society and AGLC. These critical funds enhance the learning environment by providing artist and athletes in residence, library books and much more. 

Being part of WRSFS is as easy as attending a meeting. We also need willing participants to be part of the executive.

Society Meetings

New for this year, our society and school council meetings will alternate each month between the second Tuesday at 7:00 PM and second Thursday at 8:15 AM of each month. WRSFS meetings are first with Council meetings starting immediately after. Evening meetings are held in the school gymnasium and morning meetings are held in the staff lunchroom. Babysitting is not provided. Check our Calendar page for exact dates.
