Civil EngRobotics Eng.We made it to March, we survived the snow! Oh wait, we are scheduled for more this weekend!!

Last weekend the PAC held a successful and enjoyable Parent Social, we had almost 90 parents attend. There were many prize winners, thank you for all the donations, and lots of great food, music and company. Many of us filled the dance floor and got our grove on.

PAC GM updates to come soon!!

Fundraisers

Clothing Drive

So with the forecast this weekend as rain and snow it is the perfect time to go through your house and see if there is anything that can be donated to the clothing drive taking place the last week of March with pick up on Friday, March 31st.

  • This is a joint fundraiser with Diabetes Canada.
  • Each bag of clothes collected will help raise funds for our school, as well as diabetes education, research, services and programs in Canada.
  • The PAC does get a small percentage of the funds, but it’s really about offering an opportunity to families to give back to the community and clear out unwanted stuff.
  • We are asking each student to donate at least ONE FULL GARBAGE BAG of their unwanted and used clothing. Family and friends can get involved too!
    • Acceptable items include: gently used clothing, bedding, fabric, sleeping bags, belts/ties, handbags, yarn, blankets, drapes, hats, pillows and much more!

Reminder: Two Rivers Meats – one month to go
