​Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the Education Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​

Information about the impact of COVID-19 on School Councils is available on the CBE website​.​​



School Council

All parents are encouraged to attend school council meetings to provide direction about important issues that impact our school and get involved in planning community-building events and fundraisers. By joining the school council, parents can become a partner in the school education system, help build community relationship with other parents and school administration, stay informed about what is happening at school as well as within the Calgary Board of Education and may participate in fundraisers to help improve student experience. Fundraisers organized by the Parent Advisory Society help pay for extra-curricular activities, such as transportation for field trips, purchase technology and other equipment needed for Physical Education.

Why Should I Join the School Council?

  • To raise my concerns and express my opinions in a forum for the welfare of the school
  • To become a partner in the school education system
  • To build community relationship with other parents and school administration
  • To be informed about what is happening at school as well as The Calgary Board of Education
  • Participate in fundraisers to help improve student experience (Fundraisers help pay for extra-curricular activities such as field trips, purchase technology and other equipment needed for P.E.)

Casino

Thank you to all of the parents who have signed up to volunteer for a casino shift.  We still need several positions filled and cannot do it without your support.  Parents are reminded that family and friends over the age of 18 can also support the school, so please reach out.  We are getting there!!

Our Casino fundraiser is scheduled for Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30 and we need at least 30-40 parent volunteers!  We usually earn about $65,000 and last year alone this purchased:

-$20,000 for computers/Chromebooks and a cart for student learning 

-100+ new library books 

-Club and Activities Supplies 

-Musical Instruments 

-Digital Displays in our hallways to celebrate life at SWL 

-Sound Equipment for virtual assemblies 

-Wrestling Mats and PE Equipment 

-Grade 9 Farewell celebration and grade 6-9 awards 

-Planetarium Day: Grade Six Science.

Currently, we need a lot of new games and supplies for our library, which is scheduled to reopen for students mid-April.

If we don’t have volunteers, we will lose the casino.  Thank you in advance for signing up and making your child’s school a better place to be.  Please use the following link to volunteer for a casino shift:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeUUMQICYFDHCiL6VGnRYSTpg_MgASgBhpb5dE9o2wtYxdXAg/viewform?usp=sf_link
