Parents & Guardians,

Welcome to the new school year!  Please review the following important update on some upcoming PAC activities.
Coming Home with the Children Tomorrow:

Special Funding Request Process - Any parent or guardian can complete a special funding request used to determine how we allocate the funds raised through PAC activities.  The information being sent home tomorrow outlines the process so please review and put your thinking caps on!  We are always looking for new initiatives/needs that benefit the school community.

Thriftys Smile Cards and PAC Co-op Number
– These are great initiatives that help the PAC continue to raise funds.  Information will be provided on how to participate.
Class Rep Update:
The PAC executive met last week to discuss our volunteer requirements for the upcoming year. Over the past couple of years, we have had increasing difficulty in filling our volunteer positions.  This year is of particular concern because we have some critical positions coming vacant.

We are acutely aware that there are a limited number of parents willing and/or able to devote their time to volunteer activities.  Therefore, we must harness those energies into the positions that we consider most critical, specifically those positions related to fundraising for school/class activities and those responsible for activities that bring direct benefit to the children.

As a result we have opted not to ask for PAC class reps this year. With the available technology and communication avenues, we are able to communicate effectively and directly to the parents without an intermediary.

Pease don't hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or comments. We will monitor this decision over the upcoming year to ensure it meets the needs of the parents, children and PAC activities.


Volunteer Sign Up Sheet – The volunteer sign-up sheet went home last week and we encourage everyone to review and find something that works with your schedule.  There are lots of options!  Choose something you can do at the school, at home, alone or with friends.  Be a part of your child’s school community!

Terry Fox Run- The run is taking place on Thursday Sept 26 at 9am.  Please come out to lend a hand and cheer the kids on!
Your PAC Executive,
Lisa, Monica, Mary, Sue, Stacey, Shealyn, Lesley, Susan, Melissa, Annilee and Kim
