PAC Newsletter for 2022-2023

Terry Fox Christmas Craft Fair

Terry Fox PAC is excited to be bringing back the Terry Fox Christmas Craft Fair.   It will be held on Saturday, November 5th from 10am - 4pm in the school gym.  We are looking for committee members.  Please email terryfoxcraftfair@gmail.com to join our committee.

The craft fair is now open to vendors.  Please help us spread the word about this great fundraising event.  Tables start at $45.  For more information about the event and to register please email terryfoxtcraftfair.@gmail.com

2023 Grad Chair

Terry Fox Pac had our elections last week.  While we have a Grad Liaison, we are seeking a Grad Chair.  This role needs to be filled ASAP or by September at the latest as a committee needs to be formed and fundraisers need to start happening once the school year starts.  It's important that grade 12 parents step up to form a committee.  The Grad Chair could easily be a shared role.   Let's make GRAD 2023 a wonderful event for the grade 12 students.  Please email andrea@andreahoworth.com if you are interested.   Our grad chair this year has a lot of great information to pass along.
