One day this week, the blacktop crew will likely be paving the landing spots for our new portables. On that day, the driveway will be congested, and the work area will be extended out into the roadway. The nature of blacktop is that, once they start work, they cannot suspend for dropoff. As a result, we will close the driveway at drop-off time if there is going to be a conflict. We would suggest that any students able to walk partway in be dropped adjacent to the fields, and then walk in to their lineups. Alternately, do a drop & go directly in front of the school where we will have crossing help. Unfortunately, we do not know what day the work will happen, as it is coordinated by the contractors. The expected duration of that work is approximately 3 hours. Thanks for your cooperation.
Lost & Found
Time is running out for the Lost & Found at the back courtyard doors, so we asked a special guest to help raise awareness of the plight of these poor, lost clothes. Please check, or have your child check, for any of their items. We have many, many jackets and hoodies. All leftover items will be donated at the end of the month, but we’re out of hangers and places to keep all the things we have accumulated, and there are more added every single day. We need the collection to be thinned. It is helpful to put your child’s name or initials on tag, as sometimes that lets us reunite child and jacket quite quickly.
Concerts & Appreciation
Thank you so much to everyone who attended our first concert in 2-½ years last week! It felt so good to have the gym full of our community again, and we loved sharing with you. As a gesture our our appreciation for your support and care, every attendee should have received a thank-you card loaded with wildflower seeds. If you didn’t make it, or you’d like another card or two, please drop by the office or ask your child to pick up some more. We have a few more to hand out, and we’d love to see them spreading happiness around the community (and maybe beyond!).

June 24 – Froyo & Popcorn
Another big thank you to our school community for making the return of this event such a success even with the rainy weather!
Due to the unprecedented nature of COVID-19 we have been limited in the ability to hold regular events to fundraise for our staff and students. This year the PAC would like to offer parents a new way to donate directly to the PAC, for those who do not wish to purchase goods or have limited time to participate in events.
A direct donation of $40 would be the equivalent to your child raising $275 through fundraising activities (Purdy’s, Neufelds, etc.). Funds raised go towards supporting teachers in their classrooms, busses for field trips, programs such as Dance Pl3y, Saleema Noon and more!
If you wish to make a direct donation, please send an e-transfer to email@example.com with direct donation in the Message line. Please note, at this time we are unable to provide tax receipts.
Thank you to those who have contributed!
Next General Meeting
Don’t forget our AGM and PAC Elections will be held on Monday, June 13 at 7:30pm in the Library. If you are interested in becoming a member of our PAC, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
