If Sports day runs it will start at 8:45am with group cheers and the parade of athletes around the school. We are still looking for a lot of volunteers to help run our concession. Please sign up using the following link, without parent volunteers we can not run a concession. 


If we don't have Sports Day this Friday, June 8th it will turn into donut day and the PAC will be selling donuts for $1 at the kitchen in the school to all divisions.

PAC (Parents Advisory Council) - Annual General Meeting

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS – Adams Road Elementary PAC AGM

At this time we are now accepting nominations for executive & committee roles which will be voted on in our Annual General Meeting on Thursday, May 31st at 6:30pm. Any parent is welcome to put their name forward for a position. Most do not take up a lot of time per month, and you are welcome to share the role with another parent, if you desire.

Executive Positions:

President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Communications & District PAC Rep

Committee Leads:

Hot Lunch, Fundraising, Fruit & Veggie, Emergency Preparedness / Health, Grade 7 Liaison

Being a part of our PAC is more than just fundraising or debating which pizza vendor is better. We're a group of dedicated parents who want to see our school community thrive while giving our students as many extra learning opportunities as possible.

With that being said, our executive positions MUST be filled in order to receive BC Gaming Grant funding for Adams Road Elementary. Unless parents step up to fill these roles we will lose over $10,000 in funding for 2018/19!
All PAC roles are elected each year. If you would like to put your name forward for a role, or have any questions, please email us at adamsroadpac@hotmail.com

There will be goodies & childminding at the meeting.

We hope to see you there!
