Monday, March 23rd to Thursday, April 2nd
School reopens on Tuesday, April 7th
BRE PAC MESSAGE: March’s PAC meeting was full of great discussion about several of the programs we will employ over the next couple of months, including the Artist in Residence ceramics program with Emily Tolmie and a new initiative from Curling BC that will provide instruction as well as a legacy of equipment to expand the physical education resources for teachers. Parents also brought forward the opportunity to provide a Sexual Education program to intermediate grade levels at BRE as well as an evening session for parents to help start those discussions at home, this following great reviews from parents at both Squamish and Garibaldi Highlands Elementary Schools who recently hosted this programming.
All parents and guardians are members of the PAC and we encourage all to join in at regularly scheduled PAC meetings, the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the library at 7pm, to ask questions, share feedback, and bring new ideas to the table. And if you’re only going to make it to 1 PAC meeting this year, make it May 20th for the AGM, as your vote is needed to shape the new executive council for the next school year. We have spent over $17,000 so far this year and your input on continued expenditures is extremely valuable.
Finally, we hope everyone’s got Friday, April 17th circled on their calendars for the Brackendale Family Bling Night and Blingo Bingo (yep, wear it and win it, it’s all about the bling!) Dinner is available to order NOW on Munchalunch and we’ll host a cake walk and other activities in addition to the family bingo in the gym. It’s bound to be a fun night out with the kids, and a great chance to catch up with other parents as well. See you there!
Family Bling Night Volunteer Sign Up Sheet is now posted on the PAC bulletin board. We need a lot of volunteers on April 17, 2015 to make this event a success. Please sign up for a 1-1.5 hour shift.
Dinner orders for Family Bling Night must be order on MunchaLunch by April 8, 2015.
Thank you for your support.
Cake donations will be needed for the Cake Walk at Family Bling Night.
