Happy Thanksgiving everyone, please pass the turkey. I hope all Trafalgar families are having a lovely long weekend. Here’s what you need for this week.

This week:

  • Monday – no school
  • Tuesday, 7 pm – PAC Meeting in the library – free refreshments and babysitting

PAC Meeting – Tuesday 24 Sep

School Library – 7:00pm to 8:30pm

All are welcome to attend this Tuesday night’s PAC meeting in the library. There will be refreshments and free babysitting and we will keep the meeting under 1 ½  hours.

We will be having a look at this year’s budget and hopefully in a position to pass it. Which brings us to…

Direct Appeal

Last last chance – this time we reeeally mean it…

Well, we can’t end the campaign at 98%, can we?! We just need $537.50 to reach our magnificent target of $25,000. At our average donation rate, that’s just 3 or 4 more donations.

If your family’s donation hasn’t been sent yet, this is your moment! Take us over the top! Please! If we get there, I promise I’ll stop with the exclamation marks!

The final deadline will be 7pm on Tuesday night when we begin our PAC meeting and pass our budget for this year.

Last chance – please send in your donation to the Direct Appeal – trafalgarpac.ca/appeal

Monsters Ball is
Wednesday October 23rd 5:30 – 7:30

Join us for a fun night of music, games, crafts, food, the haunted house and amazing costumes – but to make this happen we need your help!

Volunteer – Did you know we need over 100 volunteer shifts covered at the Monsters Ball?  We are 40% of the way there so we ask every family to please sign up for at least one shift if possible at: trafalgarpac.ca/monsters.

Many student council members have offered to volunteer (thanks!) but we do need their parents to officially sign them up.  This is also a great chance for older siblings and Trafalgar alumni to volunteer.

Buy your tickets – Online ticket sales will start in a couple of days at trafalgarpac.ca/monsters. Tickets will also be available before and after school starting Friday October 18th – $5/individual or $15/family. You will also be able to pre-order your cake raffle tickets, with extra bonus tickets for buying online.

Pre-order gluten free cheese pizzas – Gluten Free Rocky Mountain individual cheese pizzas will only be available through pre-order online ($6.50) so we know how many to get.  If you do not pre-order GF only regular pizza slices will be available on the night for purchase. You can pre-order GF when you buy your tickets online.

Bake a cake – This is such a fun part of the evening so please sign up to bake a Halloween themed cake/cupcakes for our cake raffle at trafalgarpac.ca/monsters. Remember no nuts!!

Book Fair

The Book Fair was a tremendous success! Thank you so much to everyone that helped and I’d also like to thank the volunteers and ESPECIALLY all the parents that came and bought a book for their teacher or child. We could not have done it without you all!

With your generosity of resources, we are pleased to say that we have raised $5,154.00 to be used towards literary resources at Trafalgar!

This is the second highest amount ever raised in the past and we are so grateful to be part of such a wonderful community that supports reading.

Thank you so much,
Janice and Amanda
