March 25, 2021

The greatest success happens when schools, teachers, parents and students work together.


Winnipeg School Division recognizes that strong parent involvement creates stronger school communities and the best educational experience for children. As the parent or guardian, you can be involved in so many ways, such as helping your child with homework, communicating openly and often with your children's teachers, volunteering, joining parent council, fund raising, sharing your expertise and talents and more.
