Around the Schools update

Mr. Albee is the lucky grand prize winner of École Heather Park Elementary School’s PAC winter fundraiser of a trip for 4 to Vancouver to watch the Canucks versus LA Kings on March 31st (which includes airfare, hotel and hockey tickets). Isabelle B won the student sports pack.

The 60 applicants for our two Quiz Me teams have been narrowed down to 8 students, who participated in writing the qualifying exam. After these tests were marked, both of our teams have made the final 16 and will appear on television. They will continue practicing twice weekly at lunch time and most days after school until filming begins this April.

Tired of the seemingly endless mountains of snow? Warm up by dancing the snow blahs away at a PAC sponsored Family Beach Party Dance planned for Friday, March 11th from 7-9 pm. There will be prizes, light show, smoke machine, limbo & hula hoop contest, concession, pizza and a beach theme photo booth. Tickets are $3.00 each or $10.00 per family.

Support another PAC fundraiser: look for the Purdy’s Easter catalogue the 2nd week of March for lots of Easter goodies and other delicious BC chocolate treats.

Thanks.
