If you know of new families to the school who haven’t already signed up to our PAC Website, please share your DL spirit by helping them find their way to www.dorothylynas.com. It keeps us all updated on what’s happening in and around the school and is a great resource for the Parent Handbook, list of PAC meeting dates, fundraiser & event information along with how to get more involved at the school.
Our first PAC Meeting is scheduled for Mon, Sept 19 – this Monday evening format will allow for our Gr 7’s to do a dry run of a presentation they will be making to the District titled What Makes a Great School. Along with this presentation, Principal Arlie Thomson and Vice-Principal Megan Wheatley will be giving us a preview to the busy year ahead along with details about the New BC Curriculum and its implementation this year.
As always, we would be lost without the help of our volunteers…..the list of available volunteer positions is endless….Welcome Back Social, Class Reps, SpiritWear, International Walk to School Week, Art Cards, Fun Foods, Christmas Baking Elves, Movie Night, Family Fun Night, Seycove Gala, KM Club, Staff Appreciation Lunch, Carnival, Spirit Day….yes, all these events have behind-the-scenes crews that make it all happen. Join in the fun, give back to your school community and meet some new families along the way. Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire further.
And finally, a reminder that as a parent, grandparent or caregiver of a child at DL, you are all automatically members of the Dorothy Lynas PAC and need no further invitation to attend meetings or get involved. Please join us anytime to continue to make Dorothy Lynas school an amazing learning and teaching environment for our students, parents and staff.
