PAC Newsletter – Oct 7, 2016

Greetings all!

We hope everyone has had a good week and is ready for the rain.

Here are the latest news and a few dates for the calendar.

Firstly, we want to extend a big THANK YOU to Lisa Birrell and Scott Munro who have worked really hard to update our technology and dragging us into the 21st century – better late than never. Please take a moment to check out the PAC pages on our website and subscribe to the school calendar You’ll also see our Facebook and Twitter links. We look forward to connecting with you on all fronts.

PAC Executive Positions

We have a great PAC Exec team this year, but we are still in need of a Co-Chair and a Communications Coordinator. Please consider these opportunities and help the PAC continue to be effective at providing resources and building community for our children. Contact Tamrah Corben for more information

PAC General Meeting

Reminder!!! PAC General Meeting – October 26 at 7pm in the library – come and hear what we are up to and check out the volunteer opportunities.

Halloween Costume Exchange

Time to clear out the closet and bring your unwanted – but still in good condition – costumes to the school from Tuesday October 11 – Friday October 14. Look for the fun poster and large box in the school lobby near the PAC bulletin board to drop off. Then come back on Monday October 17 to buy a brand “new” costume at a bargain price!

Family Photo Day

Family Photo Day was a great success again this year, getting our fundraising efforts off to a good start with not one but two days of photo sessions! Thanks to all those who participated and a big thank you to Sandy Porter for coordinating. If you haven’t already paid, please drop off an envelope with your name and money ($20) in the PAC mailbox in the school lobby. Final money raised will be confirmed soon.
