The MANOR PARK SCHOOL COUNCIL
The Manor Park School Council (MPSC) is the parent volunteer organization that manages all the fundraising activities for the school. All funds raised by the MPSC are used for school activities such as:
- Providing bussing for class field trips
- Providing special programming like Scientists in the School
- Purchasing music equipment for classes
- Assisting teachers with materials for in-class activities
- Purchasing electronic equipment for school usage (camera, microphone, sound system, video camera, etc.)
Without the funds raised by the Manor Park School Council – MPSC, (and formerly the Home and School Association), many of the initiatives listed above would simply not happen. Funds are raised by the MPSC through three main initiatives:
Pizza Lunch – occurs weekly throughout the school year

Mabel’s Labels – Click here to support the Manor Park School Council and buy labels: Customers know the benefits of labeling their items, and orders are placed throughout the year, not just during the back-to-school season. Labels are a great way to save going to the Lost & Found! Mabel’s Labels have labels for backpacks, shoes, pencils, sweaters, jackets, and any type of item. You can purchase packs to give out for birthday parties, small packs for a few items or larger packs for many items. Commissions from the sale of these labels are returned to MPSC! We hope you enjoy the labels AND not losing your child’s belongings! You’ll see “You are supporting:Manor Park School Council (Ottawa)” in the top left corner.

Dance-A-Thon – The 6th annual Dance-A-Thon was held on Friday, February 9th, 2018. This is a major fundraiser supporting the school’s Healthy Active School initiative as well as to show our school spirit! All students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 participated. In addition to collecting donations, each student danced between 30 to 50 minutes with their classmates. The dancing was fantastic as the students cheered on their DJ! There were disco balls, great music and prizes won!
Thanks for dancing & thanks to all the volunteers!
