Career Fair Opportunity

Parents of Grade 9-12 students,

Just a quick reminder for us to take advantage of the opportunity available today from 3-7 to attend the "Work BC Find Your Fit" Career Fair at the school. This is an impressive set up with a lot of career information and resources as well as a dozen personnel on site to answer any questions you or your child have about different career opportunities.

I strongly encourage you to take some time and check it out. Thank you PCS admin for making this opportunity available to our students and to the parents.

Notices & Events

Important:

It has been brought to our attention that people are driving from our parking lot to the main road without stopping. We are requesting the parents and students remember to be aware that they need to yield to traffic on the road, which has the right of way. It should also be remembered to drive slowly as there may be children in the parking lot.

Mathletics for Grades 8-12 – If your child is struggling with Math you may contact the office to purchase a subscription for $15.00 for the year. You may want to contact your child’s teacher to see if this would benefit your child.

Chetwynd Public Library Visits

We are excited for additional support of our school program from the Chetwynd Public Library this school year. Part of this support is to bring library books out to each student, according to their requests, typically on the 3rd Monday of every month. We recommend you have a conversation with your child about this program and the positive aspects of reading. You may also want to discuss what topics he/she has requested and talk about his/her interests. We do not plan to monitor the book choices of your child. We hope this program will be positive encouragement for your child to spend time reading.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Note: Parent Committee has a plan….

Happy Monday,

We wanted to send out a quick note about fundraising plans for this year so that it is on your mind (and calendars). We have changed things up a little bit….so don’t miss out!!

1) Bottle Drive: Now until the New Year bring your bottle recycle money in to the school. Last year we surpassed our goal of $750 — this year we want to double that. Students can watch for the creative way of tracking the donations. 🙂

2) We will be doing our annual group Fundscrip order (gift card fundraiser) in the near future – it will be in plenty of time for the gift cards to be used as Christmas gift options.

3) In February we will do the "Mom’s Pantry" Fundraiser again – the product is great and the company is reliable and efficient, and the profit margin is very good.

Let’s work together to make these three events successful beyond our hopes!

And just a fun reminder…..the last Friday of every month is "School Colors Day" (Wear green or PCS logo apparel)!
