Ross Road PAC Newsletter: Stay dry out there!

Hi parents,

  1.  Jody Butler rocks!  Jody’s offered to step in to help coordinate the Ross Road Christmas event….woohoo!   But she needs help.  So, let’s play a guessing game.  Do you like baked goods?  (mmmm – cookies)  And do you like presents?  If you answered ‘no’ to either of these questions, I don’t believe you.  But if you answered yes, you’re the perfect person to help Jody out.  She needs two people to coordinate the baked goods table (yes, you can squirrel away the tastiest stuff before anyone else sees it) and two people to coordinate the shop and wrap room (yes, you can make sure your kids don’t buy anything too craptacular).  These are the perfect gigs for a couple of friends to do together.  Get in touch with Jody at if you can help.
  2. The Safeteen event is next Tuesday, from 7 to 8pm.  Safeteen is a violence prevention program that aims to build assertiveness and notions of healthy relationships while teaching the students how to deal with verbal and physical violence. The workshops will run the next day, Wednesday, November 18, for the grade 6 and 7 students, but ALL Ross Road parents are invited to the parent night.
  3. You MUST order your christmas cards by tomorrow if you want to be able to send them out for Christmas.  The PAC gets 25% of the proceeds from this fundraiser, so even if your kids have the artistic talent of a snail, you’re still winning.
