November News

Hello, my name is Lia Haus and I am your new chairperson on BPAC. I have two children in Bowcroft, one in Gr.4 and the other in Gr. 1. We are all very excited about this school year! There have been a few changes of committee members as well as several new faces coming to our monthly meetings. We'd love the opportunity to share our ideas with you. Details of our monthly meetings and of who and what we are below.

October was a busy month! The flutter of candy wrappers is a sure sign that October is over and it’s time to start planning for winter activities. This year, school council is happy to announce that we will be running a Christmas Poinsettia Fundraiser, you will be receiving the forms soon. We are keeping it simple this Winter as we also have Casino in December. It is our biggest fundraiser and responsible for so many of the wonderful events and supplies we are able to purchase for the school.

We wish to thank all the parents who volunteered at the Scholastic Book Fair last month. The event was well attended by students and parents alike and we were able to raise a fabulous commission for extra library resources.

What is BPAC?
BPAC or Bowcroft Parent Action Club is a group of parents who are involved in planning and providing school resources and opportunities for our students. Besides fundraising, the council has the opportunity to discuss, with the school administration, items and issues that impact the school. Over the years, BPAC council has helped to provide much of the technology found in classrooms, literacy aids, art/sport residencies, playground equipment, school signage and additional resources for gym, music and library.

It is a rewarding experience to be involved in the success of our school and students. Please consider attending a meeting and bringing your unique experiences, insights and energy. Our next meeting is on Monday, December 7. Hope to see you there!
