Was that a quick summer or what ?! What’s the mood in your house right now?

Please join us for a Welcome Back Coffee Morning, Tuesday September 5th, from 8:45-11:00 am. Meet up with other parents, share your summer stories and have a coffee/tea/nibble. Younger siblings, grandparents and caregivers always welcome to join. Our new Principal, Tracey Todd as well as our Vice-Principal, Megan Wheatley will come by to say hello and introduce themselves.

Also, please share this email with new DL families and to those who might not already be receiving PAC emails. Please remind them to go to www.dorothylynas.com and sign up to receive PAC News by Email on the right-hand side of the page. We welcome grandparents and caregivers to sign up as well so they can stay in the loop. We promise not to inundate you with useless emails; we aim to keep the posts short, sweet and informative!

PAC Head Class Rep: Our former PAC Head Class Rep, Shelley Jelstad has taken on a new position in the DL Office. We thank her for her super- multitasking abilities and endless assistance with the PAC over the years and thrilled that we will still get to work with her as part of the DL Office Team. Our search begins for a new Head Class Rep – a parent who can send out 3-4 emails per month on behalf of the PAC & can get PAC communication forms organized and delivered to the other 24 Class Reps during the month of September. If you are organized, have access to a computer, email friendly and eager to get involved, please contact us at emaildlpac@gmail.com asap!

Class Reps: For those of you interested in becoming Class Reps, please approach your teacher during the first week of school to express your interest. Once the teacher has confirmed your role, please contact emaildlpac@gmail.com – we will be in touch with you once classroom allocations have been finalized.

PAC Executive: The PAC Executive consists of a team of 8-10 parents who organize monthly PAC meetings + the PAC agenda in tandem with the school administration. A reminder – as parents, grandparents or caregivers of a student at DL, you are automatically a member of the PAC. 

As the PAC Executive, we are heavily involved in keeping DL a close-knit community through spirit building + event planning, discussing fundraising ideas + goals and reviewing the PAC budget + spending.  We work closely with the Principal, Vice Principal and Staff Reps to ensure that school goals are being met, that students continue to stay motivated and engaged in a safe and caring environment & that PAC funds are used efficiently to equip our students with specific tools, resources and enrichment programs that might not be available to them through District funding alone. If you are interested in joining our PAC Executive, please contact PAC Chair, Rahim Rajan.

Any questions? Email us at emaildlpac@gmail.com

Have a safe and relaxing Labour Day long weekend and see you all Tuesday Sept 5th for the first day of school!
