It can't be the last week of school can it?!
Last week we held our PAC AGM (annual general meeting). During the meeting we held elections for our open positions on the PAC committee. Lisa Krieger-Maihara has kindly volunteered to lead fundraising initiatives next year, Lynnel Reinson will be leading our Parent Education activities, Allison Johnson will be our Communications coordinator, and Sanaz Niknami will be joining Sarah Ross as co-treasurer. All were voted in at the meeting in our elections. A full list of our new committee is published on our website and can be found here (http://www.canyonheightspac.ca/canyon-heights-pac-executive.html). I would like to thank all of our outgoing committee members for their invaluable contribution over the years and to thank all of our current and new committee members for their continued contribution to our school community.
During our AGM we also heard from Robin Kan and Judith Lowe about combined classes and heard some great positive stories about how combined classes can work really effectively. We also reviewed our year as a PAC - it has been a really rewarding one - you can see the summary of our annual report here http://www.canyonheightspac.ca/pac-meeting-dates.html. You'll see that much was achieved! And even more to do next year - watch this space as we put our plan together for 2017/2018.
Speaking of which, during the first couple of weeks of the summer break, your new PAC committee will be putting together a plan for next year and deciding where our focus should be. Should it be family-friendly social events? Should it be fundraising for extra field trip funds or extra technology? Do we need to improve our communications? What more can we do as a PAC to improve our school community, and foster an inclusive and supportive environment to benefit our children's education? With this in mind, we've asked you to spare a few moments to let us know what you think we should do. So far we've had some really useful feedback and it will be incorporated into our plan for next year. Don't miss this opportunity to have your say for next year - please take a moment to complete the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CanyonHeightsPAC.
In the meantime, here's to a happy, healthy and fun summer!
See you in Fall 2017 and to all those families moving on to new schools - we wish you the very best!
