Ski/Snowboard 2.0 + The Wild Wild West + Gr 1 Parents + Fun Foods Term 2!

SKI & SNOWBOARD LESSONS 2.0!


By popular demand, we have added a second set of Ski & Snowboard lessons for students in Grades 4-7!

The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is again offering the opportunity for Grades 4-7 students to take discounted Ski & Snowboard lessons through Mount Seymour Resort. A package of 4 lessons, rental equipment, a season’s pass and bus transportation up and down the mountain costs $215 per child (we were able to book the Seymour bus which is less expensive than a private bus company). Lessons and rental equipment are all through Mount Seymour Resort. Students are in lessons run and supervised by Mount Seymour Personnel while they are on the hill – there is no independent skiing or snowboarding. This package on offer is limited to 40 students.

To secure your child’s spot, please complete and email the forms sent out through your Class Rep. We are unable to hold a place until both the paperwork and payment are received.

Group Lesson Dates

Lesson Package March 7,9,13,15 (Wed, Friday, Tuesday, Thursday)
from 3:15 pm -7:00 pm (3:00 pm on the first day)

For more information & payment details please contact your Class Rep or dlpacski@gmail.com

Submission deadline is Wednesday, December 6th, 2017. However, the last set of lessons filled up in two days – so please don’t delay.

A message from Faith Haran, DL Staff Member:

A showing of “The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia” will screen Wednesday, November 15th, 2017 at 7:00 PM.

This Award winning documentary was produced by James Redford with medical input provided by Dr. Sally Shaywitz from the Yale Center for Dyslexia.
The Big Picture is an inspiring documentary for parents, teachers and children (ages 10 yrs and older) to promote education and understanding about Dyslexic learning styles. 52 minutes in length, the movie identifies strengths that help lead many Dyslexics to success and also identifies many of the challenges that Dyslexics face every day.

Reserve your tickets now through Eventbrite. This event will be held at the Unitarian Church, 370 Mathers Ave, West Vancouver. Doors open at 6:30 pm.

_______________________

Our error!  We previously stated the fundraising goal for the Click Campaign is $10,000. Our actual goal is $7,500 and to date, we have raised close to $1,400. 

THANK YOU to those families who have already shown their support, we appreciate your donations. We look forward to seeing our Fundraising Progress Meter increase on the DL PAC website before the Campaign closes Friday, Nov 10th.

 

See you all at the Welcome Back “Monster Mash” this coming Friday, October 27th from 6:30 – 8:00 pm in the DL Gym. Popcorn, frozen treats and fun for all ages. Don’t forget to RSVP to eventsdlpac@gmail.com so we can plan accordingly!

__________________________________

REQUIRED ASAP!  Skills + Talent

Parents, grandparents + caregivers we are looking to fill the following roles on the PAC. The work can be done from the comfort of your own workspace and we guarantee you won’t spend more than 5 hours per month on any of these roles:

  1. Volunteer Coordinator – This year, we will be linking Volunteer Spot to our DL PAC Website. It is a handy tool where we have already uploaded our DL Volunteer Board. With so many volunteer opportunities available throughout the year all we ask is that you administer the site a few times per month to ensure we have enough parents/students signed up to run their upcoming event. Contact Shaireen Sayani, PAC Secretary & Communications for more details.
  2. Design – While we find this blog post and our DL PAC website handy ways to keep parents informed, not all families (nor are any students) signed up to receive our PAC communications digitally. Occasionally we send out flyers via student Agendas to guarantee that all parents have been included in our PAC communications. We need the talent of a Design Coordinator to create these flyers along with posters that can be hung around the school and/or within the community. Sharing is caring and keeps our DL Community well informed. For more details contact Suzanne Siemens, PAC Co-Vice Chairperson (Update: someone has now volunteered)
  3. Marketing – We would like to have a Marketing Coordinator who could provide the necessary expertise and experience to ensure we are utilizing the most effective ways to create an awareness of and promote the various events, programs and opportunities that exist at DL. The Marketing Coordinator will work closely with both our PAC Communications Coordinator & Design Coordinator to ensure we are optimizing our efforts.
  4. SpiritWear Coordinator – Twice a year (Nov + Feb) we will be selling our fantastic DL logo hoodies, athletic gear + water bottles. We have all the items stored at the school, we just need a Coordinator to organizer on-site viewings for sizing, launch the ready-to-go online order system, and confirm the final numbers with our supplier. The system set up and flow is already done for you – we just need your supervision and organization! (Update: someone has now volunteered to lead this but others are always welcome to help.)

Please contact our PAC Chair, Rahim Rajan at dlpacchair@gmail.com if you are interested in any of the roles and/or if you would like to learn more about any of the roles. We thank you for your consideration!


A huge THANK YOU goes out to the following parents who have taken on these PAC Roles:

  • Grace Nacorda – PAC Bookkeeper
  • Ursula Steidl – Coordinator, Annual Staff Appreciation Lunch
  • Katie Gaydon – Coordinator, Art Cards & SpiritWear
  • Kim Grimwood – DL Chairperson, Seycove Auction
  • Heather Dempsey – DL Traffic Liaison
  • Giulia Desrochers – Head Class Rep
  • Jane Tom – Family of Schools Rep
  • Norisa Anderson – Design
  • Natalya Crump – Website

We simply could not do what we do without the contributions and collective effort of our volunteer community at DL!

Calendar of Events for 2017/18

A great and insightful discussion at the PAC Meeting involved parents seeking clarity on which DL events/programs are considered Spirit Events and which events are considered Fundraisers.

Fundraising Activities and Events are designed to raise funds for the PAC to be disbursed to support programs like the Transportation Fund, technology, programs that enrich a students experience and scholarships as well as in classroom (including the library) material support. A volunteer team leads these fundraising programs (and the PAC is always looking for someone to lead this each year). Fundraising activities for 2017/18 include: Fun Foods (year round), the Click Campaign (Oct 2017 – details to follow soon), Art Cards (Nov 2017), Grade 7 Movie Night (Jan 2018) and the Seycove Auction (Spring 2018).

Spirit Events are hosted by the PAC with the goal to build school and community spirit; these events are not fundraisers but rather designed to simply be self-funding. Spirit Events for 2017/18 include: the Welcome Back Social (Oct 2017), Bingo Night (Feb 2018- new this year!) and the Spring Carnival (May 2018). NOTE: SpiritWear is now considered a Spirit Initiative – we feel it is important for all families to be able to participate in wearing the school logo with pride if they choose to and accordingly pricing for all SpiritWear products will be set on a cost recovery basis only.

__________________________________

HELP! We have only 5 Class Reps out of 24 Classes! Please approach your homeroom Teacher and sign up to help.

Save the Date: Fri Oct 27th is our first Spirit Event of the year – Gr 2 + 3 families are planning a fun night for all – details to follow soon!

Traffic + Dogs + Windsor Gala + Costume Swap

Happy October! The leaves are changing colours, the nights are getting cooler and hopefully you have found your Fall groove 🙂

 

We are just the messenger! You may notice a No Dogs Allowed sign outside the annex.

We love your dogs and we understand they are part of your family – unfortunately the District of North Vancouver Parks Department regulations pertaining to dogs in Municipal parks and recreational areas states: Dogs ARE PROHIBITED on playgrounds, picnic areas, playing fields, beaches, fitness circuits, running tracks, golf courses, bowling greens, tennis courts, skate board bowls and multi-purpose facilities.

Also, as our school property flows into Indian River Park, please note DOGS ARE PROHIBITED EXCEPT ON LEASH.

If your dog does accompany you on your daily drop off or pick up, we ask that you keep him/her on a leash. More importantly, we ask that you find a location 20-30 m from the playground or playing fields as your drop off/pick up point. That way we are all respectful of District bylaws and families with dogs can still participate in the morning and afternoon walking ritual.

NOTE: Assistance Dogs are NOT subject to the above regulations. Thank you for your understanding!

_____________________________________

Traffic! We ask all DL families to review this important information.

Parents we understand that mornings can be hectic but we urge you to allow for extra time in the mornings to avoid rushing, to prevent speeding and to respect these signs for the fairness and safety of all DL families and students.

A Traffic Safety Committee was formed 4 years ago at DL to increase driver awareness and student safety. Please review and understand the following signage placed on Inlet Crescent and Shone Rd/Percy Ct.

parkingsign1-02

 

NO STOPPING SCHOOL DAYS
These signs designate the zones where vehicles are not permitted to stop under any circumstances. These zones are kept clear to provide good sight lines for drivers to see students and students to see drivers.

 

 

 

parkingsign2-03

NO PARKING SCHOOL DAYS
These signs designate the zones for active pick up and drop off of students. Do not park and leave the vehicle in these zones. By parking in a “No Parking” zone, a driver could be causing traffic congestion and obstructing the visibility of other drivers and pedestrians.
Please note that there is now no stopping on Shone/Percy as established by the District of North Vancouver. Bylaw officers now frequent the area to enforce these regulations.

 

parkingsign3-04

 

 

Travel at 30 km/hr or less near a school from 8:00am – 5:00pm on school days and near a playground from dawn to dusk every day.

Traveling at 30 km/hr or less near a school or playground increases the ability of a driver to stop his/her vehicle to allow a child to cross the road safely.

 

 

 

Safety Regulation Reminders:

  • Please slow down!
  • Do not enter the Staff Parking Lot at any time.
  • In zones signed, “No Stopping”, vehicles are not permitted to cease motion.
  • When dropping children off in a school “No Parking” zone, stop briefly and allow your passenger to exit the vehicle onto a sidewalk.
  • And finally, talk to your children about traffic safety.

Thank you for your attention!

Our Volunteer Spotlight #1 is on Irene:

“I began volunteering when my granddaughter began school 7 years ago at Dorothy Lynas. I’ve had the chance to do lots of things – baking in Mrs. Karmali’s kindergarten class, helping in the library with reading, even selling 50/50 tickets for the Seycove auction. It’s nice being part of things and seeing how the work we do benefits the kids. In the community I also enjoy helping out with the Lions Club and the Salvation Army, and in my spare time I love watching my granddaughter Savanah play baseball!”

Irene thank you for all your time and energy these past 7 years. We are so happy to have you on board as a volunteer and Savanah is so lucky to have you involved in her school events and activities!

 

 

 

 

 

Our Volunteer Spotlight #2 is on Alikie Knight:

“I’m Alikie Knight and my daughter Lucy is in grade 2 french at Dorothy Lynas. I began volunteering as a way to give back to the school and participate once my daughter started kindergarten. I work full time in the events industry so I balance my commitments by being organized – calendars, critical paths, production schedules. The past 2 years I have been Chair of the Spring Carnival, which is a match for both my skillset and my time limits of not being available during school hours. It’s a great way for me to meet other parents throughout the school. I don’t make daily drop off and pick up so I felt somewhat disconnected prior to volunteering. Now I know a lot of people at the school and in turn in my community. I love what our school community can accomplish together – our school, volunteers and neighbourhood is an amazing network of talented individuals with creative ideas.
And in free time, I enjoy outings with my daughter! We love skiing on Seymour, spending time at Cates Park, and eating waffles at Café Orso.”

Alikie, the PAC is so grateful for your commitment to the DL Spring Carnival the past 2 years. You have been the driving force behind ensuring our biggest spirit event of the year lives on!

With so many events and activities at DL, please reach out to emaildlpac@gmail.com to find the best volunteer opportunity for you!

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.
