School Council

Join us in supporting Louis

The Louis Riel School Council & Fundraising Society works to give parents a collective voice with administration and raises funds for programs to enrich student’s learning. It’s also a great way to meet other Louis Riel parents.

Check out volunteer opportunities for community events, literacy programs and fundraising. Please help. We need many parents involved to have the impact that we do. See roles descriptions & opportunities.
