As you may have heard, we are starting to get pretty excited for this year’s community Earth Day BBQ! This terrific event will be held on Thursday, April 25 from 5-7pm on the field at UHill elementary. Look out for forms coming home with your child to order BBQ food (or bring your own picnic). In addition to a number of guests from the community, the school will have a number of tables set up, and we are looking for volunteers to help out for short 30 min blocks. One of the beautiful things about this event is seeing so many families out celebrating our earth and helping out in little ways.
Please consider signing up for one of the tasks listed on THIS form.
Many thanks, and we look forward to seeing you at the Earth Day BBQ (if not before).
Your PAC executive.
The next PAC meeting will be on Monday April 8th at 6 – 8pm. We will have a short PAC meeting followed by a presentation and Q&A with Aaron Davis, the Director of Instruction for Vancouver school services.
We will also be voting on a reallocation of budgeted funds towards the purchase of laptops for the school. Last September, we determined that laptops requested by UHill staff would be covered through a direct appeal. Given that the playground fundraising was so successful, we will not need all the PAC funds allocated to the playground. Therefore, we propose reallocating the funds to technology requested. According to the bylaws this requires a discussion and vote at the next PAC meeting.
Do come along and contribute to this discussion.
Light refreshments will be served. If you would like child minding at the meeting, we are happy to provide it, but will need to know in advance. Please let us know HERE if you will be bringing your child(ren) by Friday April 5th.
Looking forward to seeing you on Monday!
Hi UHill elementary families,
Please join us on Friday morning (March 8) from 8:45-9:45 in the Multipurpose Room for our next PAC meeting. All parents/guardians are invited and encouraged to attend. This is a great way to meet other families and to find out more about what is happening in our school community. For example, with the highly successful Multicultural Fair behind us (awesome job planning team!!), we are now gearing up for our first Arts Fair (to be held in June). Come find out more about this and other interesting events and issues.
If you can’t make the meeting, but are interested in being part of the planning committee for the Arts Fair, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you Friday!
