Message from WBF School Council and Parent Association

Who’s excited about 2023-24 at Woodbridge Farms? We sure are!

A big welcome to all students, staff and parents/guardians for this school year.

We look forward to an exciting and fun-filled year. Woodbridge Farms has a wonderful school community with many talents to share.

As a parent/guardian you are automatically a member of the School Council and Parents' Association. Please feel free to join us at any upcoming meetings (that will be listed below). Please join us at the next meeting to actively take part. Parental involvement in our school is incredibly important and helps enrich the school experience for our students!

At the Parent Association meetings, you will learn about the many volunteer opportunities available to make your child's school experience memorable and exciting. Areas of focus include: hot lunches, school dances, Spirit Day lunch, fundraisers, and Wee Wonderland are all made possible because of our parent volunteers and those who donate and participate.

The School Council meetings are a great place for you to come and hear from the principal, teachers and other parents about what is going on in the school. You can listen quietly or come to share your thoughts to impact decisions about your child's learning.  The more parents that attend, the more diverse voices at the table, and the better experience our students will receive during their time at WBF. 

If you have any questions about attending any upcoming School Council or Parent Association meetings, please reach out to our executive at or

They are great for everything from shoes, clothing tags, water bottles and backpacks. You can customize them with your name and a design, and they are dishwasher, laundry and microwave safe.

To support our fundraiser, visit and select WOODBRIDGE FARMS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (SHERWOOD PARK). You can choose whatever labels or product you want, and it will ship for free directly to your house!
