Mid- September News

Exciting things happening at South Canoe Elementary.

Parent Information Night

Thurs. Sept. 20 we will be hosting a parent information night.  Here is the plan for the evening:

6:30pm – Kindergarten and Grade 1 teachers present to the parents of their students.

7:00pm – All parents in the gym for a general session

7:30pm – Grade 2 – 6 teachers will present to the parents of their students

We look forward to seeing many of you there.

South Canoe Elementary Potluck

We hope that many of you can attend the South Canoe Elementary and South Canoe Community Potluck on Sept. 25th from 5:00 – 6:30pm. Please bring a dish to share, plates and cutlery for your family and a chair if the weather is nice, otherwise we’ll be indoors and we’ll set up chairs in the gym.

PAC Elections and Meeting

Our first PAC Meeting will be held in the South Canoe Library at 6:45pm on Sept. 25 right after the Potluck.  According to the protocol for forming a PAC, the first meeting is to be held by the Principal of the School. Elections will be held that evening for the PAC Executive.  Nominations are now open for Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer. Please let me know if you would like to nominate someone for one of these positions or if you would like your name to stand. Nominations will also be taken at the first meeting as well. Once the PAC is elected, we will then vote on a constitution which has been constructed using a constitution framework from BCPAC. Once the Executive is in place, changes can be voted in. We will have a presentation from a few photographers as we choose a photographer for individual and class photos. We hope that many can attend this meeting as Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) are extremely important in schools as the body which includes all parents at the school and provides that much welcomed parental voice.

New Parent Information Session

If you know of new parents considering South Canoe for Sept. 2019, please let them know about the New Parent Information Session that we will be holding at the school on Oct. 3 at 7:00pm. There will be a 30 minute presentation and then a Q & A.  Registration for South Canoe and for all schools in the School District is on Oct. 9

Have a wonderful week!
