Welcome to the 2012-13 school year from Ross Road PAC!

Dear parents at Ross Road,

Time flies and it’s time to get into the groove of school, homework, sports and play dates! We hope you’ve all had a wonderful, relaxing and fun summer holiday! Welcome back to school and to a hopefully exciting and productive new school year! Here are a few items to note:

Welcome Back Coffee – Tuesday, September 4
The kids will be in session from 8:40 to 9:30 AM so the Ross Road PAC would like to ease you into school by serving you Welcome Back Coffee in the lobby tomorrow morning from 8:30 onwards! Come have a cup of coffee and check out the Volunteer Fair posters in the lobby while catching up with friends! Read on for more info about the Volunteer Fair…

Volunteer Fair
This year the PAC is trying something new to help recruit volunteers for the valuable volunteer services that our parent group at Ross Road provides. We are going to have a “Volunteer Job Fair” that will be set up in the lobby along with the FREE coffee tomorrow morning. This will give parents an opportunity to find out about all the great services our parent group provides as well as sign up for volunteer positions that they are interested while enjoying a cup of coffee with their friends. Come check it out if you are hanging around the first day of school waiting for your children. The Volunteer Fair posters and sign-up sheets will be in the lobby till Friday and will also be posted on the PAC website: www.rossroadpac.ca/volunteer
