PAC General Meeting
The next PAC General meeting is on Wednesday, Nov 16 in the computer room beside the library. All members of the school community are welcome to attend and child care is provided. Parents and guardians are voting members of the PAC.

Come and provide your input into how the PAC supports the school. Don’t worry … you won’t be “volunteered” for anything unless you want to be.

Fundraising

Orders from the Regal catalogue can be made through our online store at www.hpepac.shopregal.ca until November 30. 30% of all orders made through this site will go to Heather Park Elementary.

Come to Shhh in the Hart Shopping Centre on Wednesday, Nov 23, 7:00-9:00 pm. You will receive 10% off your purchase and 10% goes to the PAC.

Christmas Soiree
The school Christmas Soiree will be held on Thursday. Dec 15 at 6:00pm in the gym. More details will follow so please keep checking the website for information.

Reforming Education in BC
The Minister of Education George Abbot has released information about his plan for reforming B.C. education. Learn more about the plan at http://www.bcedplan.ca/ and provide feedback to the Ministry of Education.

About 50% of the feedback received so far has come from the Victoria area so we need to make sure that the North is also heard.
