This week:


Scholastic Book Fair – Wed and Thur

Volunteers needed

This year the annual Scholastic Fair coincides with early dismissals and the parent teacher conferences on Oct 9th and 10th.

This is a great opportunity for parents to volunteer at our school and show their support for reading. This event benefits our school library and learning commons with direct purchasing power for new books and materials every year.

Volunteers can sign up here for one (or more) of the various timeslots.

The fair will be held in the school gym and there will be both French and English books available for sale, for all ages of readers, and everyone is welcome.

It’s a great opportunity to shop for early holiday gifts or buy a book to donate to your child’s classroom.

This is the largest fundraiser the PAC holds for the benefit of our library and learning commons and typically raises around $4,000 – $8,000 in purchasing power for the purchase of new books and resources each year. In fact for every 2 books purchased at the sale, Trafalgar receives a book to stock our library.

Please come out and support this event and volunteer if you can.


Direct Appeal

Last chance

We are so close! After a huge influx of donations last week, we’re now at $23,000 – just $2,000 short of our goal. Technically the closing date of our Direct Appeal has passed, but we can’t stop now, not with just 8% to go.  Let’s extend the campaign until we get to our goal.

If your family’s donation hasn’t arrived yet, it’s not too late. Please donate now.

We just need another 10 to 20 families to send something in and then we’ll arrive at our goal.  This year has a lot in store for all students at Trafalgar and it’s great to know that our program will be funded.

Last chance – please donate to the 2019-20 Direct Appeal – trafalgarpac.ca/appeal


Monsters Ball

Wednesday October 23rd 5:30 – 7:30pm

Save the date for some Halloween fun.  A haunted house, cake raffle, ghoulish games, music, food and a jack-o-lantern contest (bring yours for judging and prizes) await you. Tickets are $5/individual and $15/family and will be available on-line and also sold at school starting Friday, October 18th.

Volunteers are what make the Monsters Ball GREAT!

The volunteer sign-up for Monsters Ball is up and we need your help!  If you have been to the event before you know there are so many games and activities going on that even just signing up for one small shift will help out immensely (and you can also sign up for more than one!).  Who can volunteer:

  • Parents and older siblings we need you – even one shift per family would be great!
  • Trafalgar alumni – perfect you know the drill!
  • Secondary students in need of volunteer hours – yes we will fill out your volunteer confirmation letter!
  • Trafalgar intermediate students – yes but your parent must sign you up and be present at the event. 

Sign up now so we know are volunteers needs are taken care of to make the night great for the kids! 

You can also sign up for the cake raffle here – we need cakes and cupcakes!
