School Council


This fundraiser will run for the entire school year or families wishing to participate, participation in this fundraiser is not mandatory.


Our goal is to purchase 20 sets of class toys with the fundraiser proceeds. If each cohort had their own set of toys for recess, the school could help protect the social & physical health of students during these challenging times by encouraging play, as well as maintaining physical distancing. The wish list of toys includes easily sanitized items such as: school yard balls, basketballs, footballs, Frisbees, crazy carpets, snow shovels and other snow toys, skipping ropes and more!

Please consider changing your method of payment by ordering gift cards for your everyday expenses or for gifts through our Fundscrip campaign and you’ll be helping Mitchell Woods purchase this outdoor, winter & spring play equipment  just by doing the shopping you’re already planning for.

The Basic Concept  Pay for your everyday expenses (like groceries or gas) & gifts with gift cards bought from FundScrip.

Each gift card purchase automatically collects a donation for Mitchell Woods from the retailer. It doesn’t cost you anything extra and you shop where you would normally shop. You’re only changing your method of payment.

  1. No Contact

Order On-line, Pay On-line & Gift Cards are delivered directly to you.

  1. Buy $100, Get $100

Buy cards at face value, get face value at the retailers – you lose nothing. With cards from over 180 leading retailers, there’s no need to change your shopping habits. Pay with gift cards instead of credit/debit/cash for your everyday items & gifts. Each purchase automatically earns a donation from participating retailers towards Mitchell Woods.

  1. Shop As Usual  
  2. Pay at Stores or Gift With Gift Cards
  3. Raise Funds

What an amazing way to support your school at no cost to you!

About Mitchell Woods Public School Council

We invite all parents/guardians/grandparents of children registered at Mitchell Woods Public School to consider parent membership on School Council for the school year.

School Council plays an important role in the development and education of children:

  • School Council contributes to the success of Mitchell Woods through our volunteer efforts.
  • Good schools become better schools when parents and educators partner. School Council plays a unique role in fostering this partnership.
  • When you participate in School Council meetings and share your voice, you are taking an active role in your child’s education. By coming out once a month to review, discuss and plan school initiatives, we show our children that we are very interested in them and the things they do.
  • School Council offers you opportunities to build relationships with other engaged parents, community members and school staff. You can be part of a school community that works together to improve and facilitate student success and school performance.

School Council is comprised of:

  • Parents
  • Community representatives
  • Teachers
  • Vice-Principal
  • Principal

Meetings are held once per month and the meeting schedule is posted on the website. Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings.

In addition to consulting with the Principal on a variety of matters that affect student learning, parents on the School Council help to organize both school events (like the September Community Social) and improve the financial resources of our school. Through fundraising efforts like magazine sales and the dance-a-thon, School Council helps to provide resources for the students like such things as an updated sound system, computers/technology, home reading programs and dance workshops.
