Point Grey Secondary School - Stəywəte:n
Dear PG Parent/Guardian,
At the beginning of this school year we sent out a letter outlining the priorities of the Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) and the jobs that we do. In an effort to keep you informed of activities and events at
Point Grey, we use the bi-weekly PG Newsletter, our monthly meetings, our website and the occasional email blast from the school.
One of the top priorities of PAC is to fundraise for the school to ensure the learning needs of all students are met and learning tools, activities, and field trips are properly funded. To do this, we disperse all monies raised by the PAC to the Point Grey teachers, administration and student clubs. Part of the funding we receive and rely on is the annual grant from the BC Gaming Funds, which unfortunately has gone down considerably this year by about $3000 and we anticipate it going down even further next year.
We appreciate the generosity of all the families that have donated to the Point Grey Secondary School PAC. Thanks to your contributions, we the PAC, have had great success in fundraising so far this year. However,
in order to ensure that we are able to continue to support our students and staff at higher levels, we need to continue fundraising.
Our balance of funds available in our financials are not as high as we’d like, and we request your generosity by donating to the PAC in order for us to continue helping our school.
This year we have been asked to organize funding for computers for the school (which are out of date), tools for Technical Skills, and books and magazines for the library. The PAC would also like to bring in special speakers for the students to build life skills and set strong foundations for their future.
We are kindly asking for your support for our Winter Fundraiser. If you have not yet given to the PAC or have the means to donate more, please consider doing so.
Thank you in advance to all the families and please help us reach our $10,000 goal!!
Suzi Noetzel & Nikki Penner-Horodyski
Your Point Grey PAC Co-Chairs
P.S. All parents/guardians of students at Point Grey Secondary are automatically members of our PAC and are invited to attend our meetings, it is with your help that we can strengthen learning and enrichment at Point Grey Secondary.
筹款活动。我们的⽬标是筹集10,000元。 如果每个家庭都给他们所能负担的, 我们会超过这个⽬标,
Buy a gift card - support the PAC!
Next deadline: Drop off in school office by 1/21 10am and you can pick them on on 1/30
Not just for gift giving! Send a Subway, Tim Hortons, Starbucks or White Spot card to school with your child for lunch. Do you shop at Choices? Safeway? Stong’s? If you purchase a gift card from us for your shopping, the PAC will get 4, 5 or even 7% of the value of your gift card. The PAC then puts the money back into projects and activities in the school that benefit our kids!
How does this magical fundraiser work? You’ll download an order form, choose what gift cards you’d like, tally it up and send the form with a cheque made out to Point Grey PAC into school with your child. They drop it at the office, we order the gift cards and deliver them to you in about a week!
There are too many retailers to name, but some of those that are participating include London Drugs, Shell, Choices Market, Amazon.ca, Save-on-Foods, T&T Supermarkets, Tim Hortons, Starbucks and The Bay.
You’ll notice a percentage on the order sheet, that’s the percentage of the gift card that will go to the PAC – for example a $100 Choices gift card will raise 7% for the school or $7 or a $50 gift card to Starbucks will raise $2.50 for the school. It doesn’t seem like much, but it adds up. So why not pay for that coffee with a gift card purchased through the PAC.
