Parents & PAC Royal Oak Review @ noon:

Parking!  A big thank you to parents who are dropping and picking up your child at a different location rather than the front of the school. Greenlea is a wonderful alternative.

Parents, don't forget to send cash or cheque with your student on Thursday to purchase Halloween tickets and grade 8 gear at lunchtime. The Family Fright Night tickets are $10 or a 4 pack for $35. Grade 8 hoodies are $34 and t-shirts are $12. 

PAC would like to thank the many volunteers who stepped forward and helped out at the BBQ and selling items at Open House. There were also ten parents at school on Tuesday assisting with the Grade 6 immunizations and it was a big task. Many parents have volunteered for additional jobs and the Halloween event. THANKS TO ALL for your time !! If parents haven't had the chance to check out the volunteer listings, please do so. There is a separate button for general PAC volunteers and then a button for the Halloween event.  

There is the PAC general meeting on Thursday night and the budget will be reviewed. Time is 7:00 pm in the Learning Commons. Hope to see you there.
