Casino Volunteers urgently requested
October 8th & 9th, 2015 • Thursday & Friday

Willow Park School Council's fundraising arm (Milton Williams Parents Association) has been assigned dates for a casino to be held at the nearby Deerfoot Inn & Casino.

Casinos are the major fundraising activity we organize and are only available every 1½+ years due to the long waiting list (our last was 2014 March). Each casino has the potential to raise $60-$80,000, which will support student programs for years to come. The proceeds have helped pay for some of our computers, musical instruments, gymnasium equipment, and complementary course items. Your participation is essential and appreciated!

We need a large number of volunteers to fulfill our obligation. For more information and to register to volunteer, please click here:

Willow Park is excited to announce that it will be using the CBE program IRIS to compliment student learning this year. For the 2015-16 school year, our central focus for staff and students will be to use IRIS to create, document and report on IPP’s (Individualized Program Plans). Many more creative initiatives are underway on how to best implement this multi-platform program at our school that will not only aim to serve student learning but to celebrate and represent our passion for the Arts! Stay tuned for more updates and information.
