FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES

UPDATES FROM THE ROSS ROAD PAC

SHAKEOUT TOONIE DRIVE!

Ross Road PAC is doing a Toonie Drive on the same day as Shake Out BC to raise funds for Ross Road Emergency Preparedness. These funds will replenish emergency supplies for our school.

Please send a $2 with your children for collection in their classroom.

On Thursday, October 19 at 10:19 a.m., millions of people worldwide will practice how to “Drop, Cover and Hold On” during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills. Ross Road Elementary is participating in 2017 Great British Columbia ShakeOut. Participating is a great way to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes – wherever you live, work, or travel

SOS Emergency Preparedness Fundraiser

In time for the annual drop, hold and cover on October 19th at 10.19am, we have a great opportunity for you to purchase a family emergency preparedness kit for yourselves and your loved ones. They make a great seasonal gift for loved ones and what better way to keep your loved ones safe than to have a preparedness package close at hand.
The PAC is partnering with SOS Emergency Response Technologies to sell some kits with 10 % of all proceeds going to the PAC. Please follow the link 1-4 person earthquake kits 2017 to grab a copy of your order form and to see what is available to purchase.
  • Ordering will commence from October 15th until October 29th.
  • Please fill out the order form and drop them off at the PAC drop off box in the school lobby along with a cheque for the correct amount made to ”SOS Emergency Response Technologies’.
  • When packages are ready to be picked up you will be contacted by the PAC.

General Meeting October 25th

The PAC General Meeting will take place on Oct 25, 7:00 pm in the school library. We will decide how to spend extra funds from last year, so please attend, if you want a say on how our fundraising dollars are spent.
Here’s a quick reminder that grades 4 and 5 are responsible for organizing the Winter Fair this year. We need at least one parent from each of these classes to step up and help with the organization. If interested, please email Ross Road PAC at rossroadpac@gmail.com
