Southwest Parents for French Immersion Society

St. Stanislaus has an active and engaged parent community.  All parents are encouraged to get involved in our school community.


The Southwest Parents for French Immersion Society (SWPFI) was formed in 1988.  SWPFI’s role is to raise funds to support the children and program initiatives at École St. Stanislaus.  SWPFI is a registered society, an independent legal entity which manages the financial components associated with activities of the School Council.    SWPFI meetings are where votes are made on the monies associated with ideas discussed in the School Council meeting.  Support for SWPFI goes to causes like upgrading the school’s technology (computer lab, iPads, laptop carts, Smartboards), library, literacy/numeracy supports or subscriptions (like Reflex Math or RazKids), and maintenance of play equipment and structures. 

All St. Stanislaus parents are welcome to become a member-at-large of SWPFI and attend meetings.  We meet throughout the school year to discuss fundraising initiatives and to implement our fundraising programs.  We work with the School Council, administration and the teachers to determine the best use of the funds our school community has raised.

 Parent involvement with SWPFI may take different forms:

  1. Taking on an executive or supporting position on SWPFI
  2. Volunteering to support SWPFI initiatives
  • Distribute hot lunch
  • Serve hot dogs and juice at Birthday Book Club
  • Helping out at or preparing for SWPFI events (like family movie night)
  • Planning, organizing, or executing SWPFI Fundraisers (for example, Art Cards)


To learn more about SWPFI, please contact us or become a member-at-large and attend a meeting.
