Tickets are on sale starting Wed., Oct. 18th after school in the main lobby. Tickets are $5 each or $15 for a family of 4-5. All little monsters must be accompanied by an adult monster.

Volunteers and Cakes…Yes Cakes Needed for the Monsters Ball!

The PAC is looking for volunteers for this event as it does not run without the helping hands of others and we had a hard time getting enough people last year! If you are interested in volunteering for a 30 – 45 minute shift, please sign up on-line by clicking here. We really do need as much help as possible.
As well, we are bringing back the cake raffle so we need your help in baking Halloween themed cakes or cupcakes which will be displayed and raffled off at the Monsters Ball (Remember No Nuts).  Please sign up through the on-line volunteer sign-up and bring your cake the night of the ball.  The kids love checking these creations out and choosing their favourite.
Jack O’lantern Contest
Little monsters, parents and staff are invited to carve a jack o’lantern at home and bring us your spookiest or silliest lantern for judging on the day of the Monsters Ball. Tables will be set up in the school’s main hall to receive your masterpieces on the day of the ball. ALL carvers will be entered into a draw for a gift card from Kidsbooks plus there will be a price for the best pumpkin as judged by you. Carvers can take their jack o’lanterns home at the end of the night.
