Dear parents,

The PAC desperately needs a treasurer.  Like seriously.  No kidding.  This is one job that is critical to the smooth running of the PAC, and if no one steps up we’ll have to resort to hiding the cash we raise under our mattresses and paying for things in chickens.  No-one wants that.  Please consider volunteering to do this job.  For more details, please get in touch with Sarah Dennis (

In other news, the Annual Staff Appreciation Lunch this week was another huge success! Thank you to all who donated gifts – we ended up with more than we needed and will use the leftover ones for Spring Carnival and other events in the future. Thank you also to those who brought in food for the lunch and who volunteered on the playground so the staff could enjoy a lunch together. They were all very appreciative of everything and asked us to pass on their thanks.

School staff are also hosting a Ross Road Volunteer celebration in the Ross Road foyer on Tuesday, 28th April, 2015 from 8:00 – 8:30 a.m.  Please RSVP via the form that was sent out on or before Monday, April 27th, 2015 to indicate your presence and if you will require babysitting from 8:00-8:30 only.

Finally, we will be holding a children’s book sale on Monday, May 11, and Tuesday, May 12, with all proceeds going to the school library!  In previous years, our bi-annual Spell-a-thon raised extra funds for the library, but as it was cancelled this year, we have decided to try something new! While we raise funds for the library, you get to clean out your bookshelves! It’s a win-win situation!  Please bring in your gently used or new children’s books.  There will be boxes in each classroom to collect them in.  Please bring in your books by Monday, May 4th.

Thanks and have a great weekend.
