Fall FUN Fair

Mark your calendars!!

The Famous PCS Fall Fun Fair has been set for Oct 28 (3-6PM):

Look for a note coming home in the next week or two (or a “verbal note” from your older grade student) from your child’s classroom providing the item that your child has been asked to bring to the Fun Fair for their food or game booth. As well, they will be assigned a certain time in which they are scheduled to help at one of their booths.

Tickets will be sold at the door for $0.25 a ticket.

Thank you for your support!

Mom’s Pantry Fundraising Results

Hello Families!

Thank you for your recent support of the Mom’s Pantry Fundraiser!!

Our profit came to $1024.80!!

So far we have had positive feedback about the food products 🙂

Special thanks to our top three student sellers (enjoy your movie and swim!!):
– Delaynee Ethier

– Dylan Shankel

Mom’s Pantry Order Pick-up

Your Mom’s Pantry Order will be ready for Pick-up Friday at 2:30 at the school.

Please make sure you arrange to pick up your childs orders at 2:30 — remember some items are frozen so we do not want them sitting at the school over the long weekend.

We are hoping the order will be delivered to the school between 1 and 1:30 — if any parent is able to come at that time to help sort and get ready for 2:30 pick up I would appreciate the help.

Thank you for participating in this new fundraiser.

The fundraising profit and the top three sellers will be announced after the long weekend.

Thanks and have a great day!!
