Our Parent Council Committees and Executives work to organize and deliver the fundraising activities and enrichment programs that make Runnymede PS a special community. As always, your help and support are needed and appreciated. You can join a committee, volunteer to help with pizza lunches, spirit events, yard days, arts and STEM programs or work with our Communications Committee to bring fresh ideas and new ways of connecting with the RPS community. Everyone is welcome and no job is too small.

Ready to sign up to help? Visit our Council Committee webpage to email committees directly or contact our Council Chair, Dale Cadeau.

Executive Council is looking forward to working with Committees, parents, and school Administration for another fun and eventful school year.
