PAC Newsletter: KM Club | Staff Appreciation Lunch | Childhood Anxiety Speaker

Dear parents,

Welcome back from spring break!

  • The annual Ross Road Kilometer Club is back! This year, the club will start on Monday April 7th. All K-7 students, parents and siblings are invited to come and participate in this event. It is a great opportunity to increase your fitness level, challenge yourself to reach a certain Km goal, and for parents to ensure their children are getting some DPA (daily physical activity).  Running takes place every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 20 minutes from 8:05 (warm up for 5 minutes) to 8:35 on the field for a total of 15 running days (end mid/end of May). For more information, please click here.
  •  The annual Staff Appreciation Lunch will be held on Wednesday April 9th. This is a great opportunity for us to thank the Teachers and Staff at Ross Road for all that they do for our children. Please keep the date in mind as we’ll be asking for donations of lunch items (casseroles, sandwiches, salads, appetizer dishes, desserts). We’ll also be asking for donations of small gifts for the teachers. Typically gifts are approximately $10 each and suggestions might be a bottle of wine, gift certificate to a coffee place or garden shop, soaps, tea…feel free to get creative. We’ll be looking for about 50 gifts so that everyone gets one.   Please contact Frances Carmichael ( or click here to sign up online for volunteer shifts, food or gifts. Thank you!
  • The PAC will host a parent education night on April 9, from 7-9pm with childhood anxiety expert, Christine Yu.  Christine is a Registered Clinical Counsellor and has a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from UBC. She will talk to parents about general childhood anxiety and offer advice on how to manage it. There will also be time for a Q&A session.
