This week:

PAC Meeting

Please come to our monthly PAC meeting, Tuesday, May 8th at 7pm in the Library. This meeting is more fun than you would ever expect to have in the basement of the school. But in all honesty, please do come and voice your opinions on how the PAC should spend their money. We will do our usual updates and then discuss priorities for budgeting spending for 2018/19. We will also be accepting nominations for the PAC executive for 2018/19. All parents welcome. Babysitting will be available as always.

Fantasy baskets!!

Spring Fantasy Baskets are on display in the library and they are some of the best we’ve ever seen! You are going to want one (or two!). Themes this year include Wine, Mothers Day, Beach, LEGO, Books, Baking, Gift cards for kids, and Money Tree, among others. Ticket sales will start this Thursday, May 10th before and after school either in the lobby or outside next to the playground (weather dependent) and will continue until Sports Day next Thursday when the winners will be announced. Raffles tickets will be on sale for $1 for 1 ticket, $5 for 6 tickets or $10 for 15 tickets! Cash or cheques made out to Trafalgar PAC will be accepted. Thursday, May 10th is DOUBLE DAY!! You will receive double the tickets for the same price! All funds raised will go towards purchasing new technology to replace the ailing items we have in the library and computer room. See a flyer with all the baskets here – FantasyBasket2018 Browse now and get your child to do your raffle shopping for you!

Volunteers needed

We are in need of volunteers to help sell raffle tickets before and after school between Thursday, May 10th-17th. We also need a volunteer from each class to help put together and deliver snacks on Sports Day on May 17th between 9-10:30am. Please email if you are able to assist with either of the above. Thanks!

Quebec Students Arrive

As part of our Grade 7 Quebec Exchange, you will be noticing a few new faces around the school for the week, starting May 9th. Please make sure these grade 7 students from Quebec feel welcome by giving them a friendly Trafalgar Smile and saying Bonjour!
