#WWSCommunity – Family Resources

School Annual Events & Parent Social Nights

The #WWSCommunity is invited to get involved and participate in many of the school’s traditional festivals, student performances, presentations and fundraising  events throughout the year.

In addition to public community events, WWS has also organized social events like moms and dads’ evening, education workshops, parent book clubs and more to support new families and create a warm, welcoming and supportive environment for everyone.

Parent Association & PAC

WWS parents are automatically considered part of the Parent Association, but can volunteer on the Parent Action Council (the governing body of the Parent Assoc.) which helps foster a healthy creative energy and environment.

“Fun-raising” Events

The PAC facilitates all fundraising activities and aims to create a social network of Whistler Waldorf parents through our many events. To assist with the ongoing development of the school, WWS coordinates various annual fundraising initiatives  and parent enrichment activities.
