PAC AGM

It’s that time of year again – the PAC AGM is around the corner! Mark your calendars and join us on May 31st at 8pm.

We are proposing some updates to our PAC Bylaws. These bylaws were first approved in September 2017, and then revised in September 2018. You can view the proposed updates here. At the AGM, we will walk through the changes and then vote on them. Feel free to reach out with any questions or comments at uhillpac@gmail.com. You can also bring your questions to the AGM.

Also, a reminder that PAC is looking for parents to join the team and take on Executive positions for this upcoming 2021/2022 school year. All executive positions are open: Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. Each of these roles can be filled by an individual, or shared between two people. Below are some guidelines on each role. To be nominated for any of the PAC Exec roles, please send Laura and Diana, our Nominations Committee, a brief description about yourself and why you want to be a member of the PAC executive (~5 sentences). Please also include your email address, a photo, the position of your interest, and your children’s grades and divisions and send to: castrejonviolante.laura@gmail.com and djposselt@gmail.com. For informative purposes, please note that this profile will be shared with the UHILL community ahead of the elections. The nominations close on May 15, 2021. The elections will be held on May 31 2021.

Mental Health Week

This coming week, May 3-9, is mental health week. The Canadian Mental Health Association has produced a school toolkit, which parents may also be interested in accessing. It focuses heavily on identifying and naming emotions and the positive impact that this can have on our wellbeing. Check it out if you are interested – there are some activities that you might enjoy trying out with your kids.

Free, Fun Recycling Workshop this Thursday

This coming Thursday the UHill Climate Club will host a FREE Recycling Workshop.

This interactive workshop will teach participants about the harmful impacts of waste and the importance of bin-sorting, through an engaging presentation, group discussion, and online game.

It will be held virtually and is primarily oriented to children ages 7-13; however, parents would probably get a lot out of it too! Please join in and learn more, and also support these passionate kids who truly care about each other, their families, and the earth.


When: April 29, 2021
Time: 4:30 – 5:30 pm


To join please, send an email to climateclub.van@gmail.com and we will send you the Zoom link.

The kids in UHill’s Climate Club have been working hard to prepare for this session, so please join if you can!
