Good Tuesday morning, DPAC and PAC friends!
Well, we've made it through another school year, and I don't know about you, but I can hardly believe it's June. My kids have already started a "who's going to sleep the most the first week after school ends" contest. I think my 13 year old may have this one in the bag.
Anyhoo, here are the last DPAC General Meeting minutes of the school year.
Don't forget that we start up again September 17th. In general, we meet at 6:30pm every THIRD Tuesday of the month at the Henry Grube Education Centre. Exceptions are: December, March and June, when we do not meet due to Winter Break, Spring Break, and Crazy End of School Year June.
We already have a speaker lined up for September, but we would love your ideas for education for the Fall. Previous years' education sessions have included: Safety in a Digital Age, Askable Adult, monthly Food Safe Education, and more. Who would you like us to bring for education? We are thinking about asking the folks from BCCPAC come and do a PAC A-to-Z presentation, an Aboriginal Parent Engagement session, and SOGI sessions, but we need to know what your pac/parents want! Send me your ideas!
DON'T FORGET TO APPLY FOR YOUR GAMING GRANTS BEFORE JUNE 30TH!!! That's $20/student that you get to spend on your school's kids!
And....a very warm welcome to our newest PACs, including the parents who are moving from David Thompson to the new school, and the new PAC comprised of parents from Insight, which is part of the KOOL program. Welcome, welcome, welcome. We can't wait to meet you. Don't forget to submit your bylaws and constitutions to the School Board office and get your gaming grant applications in, because who doesn't love a few extra dollars, right?
You can peek back at our minutes from the school year, as well as our DPAC bylaws and constitution at dpac.sd73.bc.ca
See you all in September. Have a wonderful, safe summer vacation!
Your SD73 DPAC Executive: Sheri, Brad, Erin, Chris, Don, Kerri, Megan, Tibor and Valerie
