2020 - 2021
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are incredibly delighted and grateful to have our children and their teachers back in school again, particularly after such a challenging spring and summer. Between returning to class, home school and virtual school, we understand that the excitement of "going back to school" is pretty much non-existent. If there are a few words that can make a huge difference in our school community this year - we are in this together!
Yes, this school year is going to be very different, and we are all about to start our journey together for a school year like no other. First of all, a number of PAC-programs/events will be put on hold until we get the green light from Health Canada, the Richmond School District and the school administration. These include Friday Store, Hot Lunch Days, Movie Night, Family Photo Night and any fundraising events, and Cash for Clothing Drive.
Note that our Return-It Express account is still open - it’s easy and 100% of your empties go into the PAC account and will be used towards helping our students and the school. You can find all information on the "Get Involved" section of this website.
Please note that we will not be sending home the Direct Donation forms this year. However, if you would like to send us a donation, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more instructions. We do welcome any support given. If you know of any organizations willing to sponsor our PAC and the school, please do let us know and we will reach out to them for arrangements.
We ask that you join us at our first PAC Meeting on Thursday, September 17, 2020, 6:30 - 8 pm. We have set up a virtual meeting room. Please send us an email at email@example.com to let us know if you will be attending so we can add you to our attendees’ list. We also encourage you to bookmark the PAC website (http://www.tomsettpac.com) and/or connect with us on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/groups/TomsettPAC) to keep up-to-date on PAC events and news.
Let’s make 2020-2021 a great year for our children. We are all PAC and when we all come together, we can turn any conquer all challenges COVID-19 throws at us! If you have questions or concerns, feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, anytime.
Cheers to a great school year,
Your 2020-2021 PAC Executives
