Time for the annual family photo? Need something for the holiday cards? A gift for grandparents? Don't miss out on this opportunity to support PAC and get a lovely set of family photos for this special time of the year!
This is a popular event and will sell out. For more information or to book your spot, contact us at email@example.com.
In the September newsletter, we reported that $742 had been collected during the Direct Donation Drive. We spoke too quickly! The North Vancouver School District collects the online donations made with credit cards and they let us know a sizeable amount is sitting in our accounts. So, the final result of our fundraising effort was $1,280!! Queen Mary families continue to amaze.
We will easily be able to fund the School Garden Program and have a bit left for next time. Thank you, all!
We missed you too! And we have you covered. Minutes - which summarize the proceedings a meeting - are always recorded at our General PAC Meetings and posted on the website. You can find the minutes for the October 3rd meeting on this page, towards the bottom.
It's never too late to be ready! If you are interested in purchasing an emergency kit, please do so by Thursday Oct 20. These kits can help you get started, or be used to outfit your entire family in one go; they even make good gifts. And know that part of your purchase will benefit Queen Mary PAC too.
The flyer is here, online ordering is here, and printable forms are here.
One of PAC's biggest events of the year is coming! Halloween Dance takes place on Friday, Oct 28 at 6:00-8:00pm in the Queen Mary gym. This is a family friendly event - no scary costumes or replica weapons please! All children must also be accompanied by an adult.
We also need some help to pull it off! Let us know if you can bake some cupcakes or provide any decorations. PAC will also need parents to help decorate the gym after school that day, prior to doors opening. So that we may plan better, please send us an email to let us know if you can help.
The Queen Mary Green Team has special morning activities for Walk & Wheel Week! They will be set up outside the school with guests, games, and giveaways. This is a good a reason as any to try leaving the car at home and get some of the great benefits of walking to school with your student.
Rain or shine!
Did you know that we partner with COBS at Lonsdale Quay? Through their Dough Raiser program, 5% of every purchase made by Queen Mary families come back to PAC. All you need to do is mention that you are with Queen Mary when buying your goodies. Now that's a sweet way to help out!
This year, the 2016 Great British Columbia Shakeout takes place October 20 at 10:20am. Everywhere, people will practice how to "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" during this drill. Participating is a great way for your family to get prepared to survive and recover from an earthquake - wherever you live, work, or travel.
Part of being prepared is having an emergency kit! Queen Mary PAC has partnered with Life472 to offer kits for which part of the sales will go directly back to our school. Orders are due by Oct 20, with items delivered to school on Nov 9. Here is a PDF of the flyer (please pass along to friends and family!), as well the order form. We encourage online ordering, otherwise order forms and payment should be returned to the school office.
