The first PAC meeting of the year will be held this Monday September 24th from 7:00pm - 8:30pm in the school library. All parents and guardians are invited. Free childminding is provided.
POPCORN is coming!!
This is a heads up that Popcorn sales will be up on the MunchaLunch website this weekend. This is the same site used to make Fun Lunch orders.
Please order before Thursday Sept 27 to purchase a card for the year for your kids! Each card is $15 which buys
9 bags over the course of the year. This is a one time opportunity to buy for the year🍿🍿🍿, how exciting!
First popcorn day is Friday Oct 5!
Pre-purchasing means you don’t need to worry about it for the rest of the year 🙂
If you choose not to buy a card for the year, students can buy a bag on the day for $2.
All proceeds go to our PAC and supporting our amazing school community!
Class Reps are needed for Divisions 1 (Ms. Cassie), 2 (Ms. Nielsen), 4 (Ms. Janze), 6 (Ms. Scott), 7 (Ms. Dimitropoulos), 13 (Ms. Korchinski / Ms. Broadland) ,and 15 (Ms. Adams).
Class Parent Reps are a vital part of our David Livingstone community. They communicate with families by email or in person to share information about upcoming events and activities and can act as a connection between classroom teachers and parents, especially for those parents that can't be at the school very often.
Working with teachers to share any communications will be dependent on the individual teacher but can include collection an email list of parents, forwarding emails about classroom activities or requests, and possibly assisting teachers to coordinate classroom activities. Announcements and information from the Parents Advisory Council (PAC) are usually sent once or twice per month to be forwarded to parents in the class.
If you are interested in being the class rep for the 2018-2019 year, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, child (children's names), and your child's teacher/division you would like to be the class rep for.
Fun Lunch Days are a part of the PAC’s fundraising efforts, but more importantly they are a lot of fun for the students! Parents also love having one day a week when packed lunches are not needed.
