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!
Did you know that donations to PAC support both fun and learning at Queen Mary? We run the Ice Cream Social and Family BBQ that are FREE to our community, as well as purchase additional supplies as needed by the school.
Help us start the year off by contributing to our Direct Donation Drive - this is your chance to provide us with financial support instead of (or in addition to!) volunteering your time or buying anything.
Cash or cheque donations may be put in our office drop box, or go online to receive a tax-receipt. Thanks for the support!
So what is Fun Lunch? Fun Lunch is a program that brings a special food day to Queen Mary each month. It is run by PAC and proceeds sponsor activities for students and their families.
Fun Lunch is open to all students (and staff!) and gives you a break from packing lunch. This year PAC continues to offer a "Pizza & Popsicle" Day on the last Wednesday of each month. Ordering is now open with the first lunch on Sept 27.
Fun Lunch brochures are going home today, and you may also visit the Fun Lunch page for more information. Happy eating!
You read it right! PAC is hosting an Ice Cream Social next week in the Queen Mary gym. Come by for FREE ice cream - just bring a cup and spoon. This is a great opportunity to meet and make some new friends, for students and parents alike!
We hope your family has had a great summer! Mark your calendar and let Queen Mary PAC welcome you back to school:
Coffee Morning on Friday, September 8 starting at 8:45 am. We will have smiles, refreshment and information for everyone! Located on the 1st floor atrium.
Ice Cream Social on Wednesday, September 13 at 6:30-7:30 pm. Enjoy a free scoop of ice cream and get to know your community. Please help us reduce waste - bring your own cup and spoon! Located in the gym.
Get ready for school by getting those important dates into your calendar! If that copy of the school calendar went missing over summer, just download a PDF copy here.

Yes, school is less than a week away and you may have no idea what to pack for snack or lunch! We have a few handy resources from Vancouver Coastal Health - print and post them on your fridge for great ideas. Then you just need to have time to get to the grocery store...
Don't panic! You don't have to go buy school supplies this year! Upon our return to school, a $55 fee to the school will be used by teachers to buy all students' supplies in bulk. This will ensure that each student has access to the same quality supplies.
If you do wish to buy your own, visit our Parent Resource page to find the relevant supplies list.
Every year, during every term, we see two full tables' worth of items in the Lost & Found - be prepared this year and get labels! Try out some from Stickie Cool Label (stickie.ca), a small local company created by friends of Queen Mary PAC. These are made of waterproof vinyl and it's super easy to order. Better yet, use coupon code "queenmary2017 " to get 15% off your order!
Need an opportunity for your kids to see their friends, and perhaps a chance for you to chat with other parents? Come by to an informal play date at Queen Mary on Thursday, August 31 at 10:00 am - 12:00 noon. If you can, please bring a small snack to share. Looking forward to seeing you!
