October News

Greetings from Bowcroft Parent Action Club 

September was a busy month of fundraising at Bowcroft School. Thanks to everyone who helped to raise money for our school by supporting the Entertainment Book drive. We had some very motivated students who have earned the chance to experience the „money- machine‟ for selling ten books or more! A huge thank you for the many countless hours Lia Haus has volunteered to the fundraiser. The money raised from Entertainment Books is put toward many things that benefit every child in the school. 

This month we are hosting the Scholastic Book Fair. It starts on Monday, October 19th and ends on Friday, October 23rd. We need Volunteers for morning and afternoon shifts to help kids select books and develop their wish-lists! Any parents who are interested in volunteering for this great event can email our volunteer coordinator Trish Braaten. Money raised from the book fair goes towards library resources for our school. 

Our Casino is scheduled for December 9th and 10th. Every 18 months we have the opportunity to work at Elbow River Casino for two days. This is by far our biggest fundraiser. Last Casino earned us over $70,000. We need volunteers to work day and night shifts. Police clearance is not necessary. For more information, visit: bowcroft.blogspot.ca 

We hope you had a chance to say “hi” to us at the Welcome Back Barbeque last Thursday. If not, we kindly invite you to attend our next meeting in the library on Monday, October 5th at 7:00pm. You‟ll be able to meet the folks who endeavour to support Bowcroft School through volunteerism and fund-raising. Meetings are open to every parent/guardian with a student who attends the school. It is a great opportunity to meet Mr. Lowe and Mrs. Zelmer as well as many friendly parents! 

This up-coming meeting is our AGM. We will be hosting annual elections for the BPAC council executive. 

Enjoy these beautiful days of fall!
