Thank you for your participation in this year’s first Spirit week

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!
