For several years, the UHill Elementary Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) has been raising money for the school through Direct Appeal. The Direct Appeal approach allows parents to contribute money to the school directly instead of spending time and energy selling fundraising products door to door. Additionally, donors can request an official tax receipt from the Vancouver School Board (VSB) for their donation.
Food Donations – Please consider this a friendly reminder to sign-up to bring a homemade dish for our Teachers and Staff Appreciation Lunch next Wednesday, Jun 7th. All food donations are welcome.
Volunteers Still Needed – If you are willing to volunteer your time on that day please provide your name and email address in one of the spaces allotted.
Fresh Flower Arrangements – If one of our parents has fresh flowers from their garden and would like to create flower arrangements for the Food Table and four round tables where staff sit, it would be greatly appreciated. Please provide your name and phone number in the space allotted on the attached Google document and on the day, please label your vase with your name.

Thank you again for your support and for your contributions!
