Grade 5 Bottle Drive Fundraiser!

The Macaulay Grade 5 Graduating Class is doing a fundraiser!

Funds raised will go towards graduation “recognition” shirts for grade 5 students, in lieu of an end of year in-person celebration event.  There are two ways to contribute:

• Drop off your bottles (either at Island Return It in Esquimalt or at any of the Bottle Depot locations on Quadra, Queens or Glanford). Mention “Macaulay Grad 2020” and your contribution will be added to that account. Tell your friends & family!
Please note that depots have reduced hours and are asking that people sort and count their bottles before bringing them in due to health and safety measures.

• Ask friends & family for a donation to the Macaulay 2020 Grade 5 Graduation fund. Donations supporting Grade 5 graduation recognition can be made  by e-transfer to (password macpac) or dropped off at the Macaulay school office.

Important Message for Macaulay Families

Dear Macaulay Families, The COVID-19 pandemic is a challenging and uncertain time. The volunteer Macaulay PAC Executive team are closely monitoring the recommendations of the Provincial Health Officer, the Ministry of Education and the Greater Victoria School District. Based on these recommendations, the uncertainty around when classes might resume, and to ensure that all Macaulay children and families stay safe, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Walk-A-Thon PAC fundraising event, the remaining Macaulay PAC Fun Lunches, and the April 8th Macaulay PAC general meeting.Families who have ordered Fun Lunches (April 3 pizza, May 1 Subway and June 5 pizza) will soon receive an email detailing order cancellations and refunds. We understand some students may have already collected Walk-A-Thon donations and we apologize for this inconvenience. Walk-A-Thon donations that cannot be returned to donors can be received by the PAC as a general donation, with donor permission, through the Macaulay school office. Unfortunately, there will be no Walk-A-Thon prizes awarded or distributed this year.While the April Macaulay PAC general meeting has been cancelled, the Macaulay PAC team is working on organizing a Macaulay PAC community video call to allow families to connect digitally with each other and with PAC volunteers — stay tuned for more details.

Thank you for your understanding, and please reach out with any questions or concerns to

Steph Hazlitt
on behalf of the volunteer Macaulay PAC Executive team

Walk-A-Thon 2020

The 2020 Walk-A-Thon (WAT) envelopes, pledge sheets and more information will be coming home soon with your child. Check those backpacks!

The WAT is Macaulay’s biggest fundraising event of the year and a critical part of the Parent Advisory Committee’s financial planning. This is a great event that promotes both school and community spirit!

Funds raised support many PAC-funded activities at the school. These activities include Art, Science and Drama workshops, field trips, PAC family events, and classroom allowances for teachers to purchase supplies for their classrooms.  Kids can earn great prizes too!

Who should I ask for pledges?
 Be creative! Hold a fundraising event! Hold a bottle drive, lemonade stand, bake sale, garage sale, sell
homemade crafts etc. and donate the proceeds to your pledge form. Parents who work in offices: an office cupcake sale works well.
 Neighbours – please be safe and make sure you have an adult accompany you when going door to
door. Collect the money when you ask for the pledge.
 Family members, friends, your parents’ co-workers, and offices.
