Playground Enhancement Fundraising
The PAC has started to raise the money needed to undertake the planned playground enhancements.
On Tuesday, February 7, 2012 each student at École Heather Park Elementary will be given a book of ten raffle tickets. The grand prize in the raffle will be a trip for four to Vancouver via Westjet to see the Canucks vs Calgary game on March 31 including two nights at the Sandman in Vancouver.

We ask that each student sell the book of tickets and bring the stubs and money received ($20) back to their class for collection. If students are unable to sell the entire book of tickets, they may return any unsold tickets along with any cash received to the school for collection.

In addition to the main Canucks Raffle, we will also be holding a separate Appreciation Draw for students who help sell tickets. Many local businesses have donated prizes for the Appreciation Draw including Powder King, Hart Highlands Ski Hill, Ruckus, Spruce Kings Hockey, Dominos Pizza, Tabor Mountain, Dairy Queen and more. Students will have their name entered in this draw each time they sell a book of tickets.

If you prefer that your child does not receive a book of raffle tickets to sell, please email us as soon as possible at fundraising@heatherparkpac.info.

If you would like to make a direct donation to the Playground Improvement Project, please send us an email at fundraising@heatherparkpac.info. We will be happy to add your child’s name to the draw for every donation received. All donations will go directly to the Playground Improvement Project and donations of $25 or more will receive a tax receipt.

Spring Break in 2013
The Prince George school district calendar committee met to discuss the calendar for the 2012/13 school year, and the question of whether or not to have a two week spring break in 2013 has come up. Do you have any comments? What would be your preference; one week or two? You can leave comments at http://sd57dpac.ca/2012/01/spring-break-in-2013/.
