Annual General Meeting

Our next PAC meeting is on May 10, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in the school library. Free child-minding is provided.

For this meeting Karen and Tim will be presenting on the topic of technology in our schools.

The May meeting is also our Annual General Meeting, which we will hold after their presentation. As part of the AGM we will be filling our Executive positions for the next school year, which are open to any Macaulay parent or guardian. Nominations are put forward at the AGM and if there is more than one person put forward for a position we will vote (by secret ballot). If you know you are interested in a position please advise via email to macaulaypac@gmail.com as this will assist us in making preparations for the AGM.

The following positions are open:
– Chair

– Vice Chair
– Secretary
– Treasurer
– Fundraising Coordinator
– VCPAC Representative
– Members at Large (four positions)

For information about the duties of each position, please contact the macaulaypac@gmail.com.

Contributing to the PAC is a great way to connect with other parents and school staff, and be a part of your child’s experience at Macaulay. We encourage everyone to attend our May meeting, regardless of whether you are interested in an Executive position.

Are you prepared?

Hello Macaulay Community!

Are you prepared for a disaster? Or even a first aid mishap? Ya me neither.

The PAC is making it a little easier. At the bottom of this post you will find a flyer with several first aid & disaster preparedness kits for sale. Alert First Aid, in conjunction with Ecole Macaulay Elementary PAC, is offering these kits to you at a discount. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Ecole Macaulay Elementary Parent Advisory Council.

Plus you can buy these through the hotlunches website and pay by PayPal online! Or for those that love paper, print your final order form and pay by cheque or cash. Cheques must be made payable to “ Macaulay PAC.” Put your payment and order form into the PAC mailbox in the front office, in an envelope marked with your name.

So that we can get you ready for Emergency Preparedness Week all order must be placed by April 30th. Purchased kits will be available for pick up at the school during Emergency Preparedness Week (May 7-11) https://www.getprepared. gc.ca/cnt/rsrcs/ep-wk/index-en .aspx

Royal Hockey Tickets Part 2

After a very successful 50/50 draw this hockey season, the Macaulay PAC has been given a second date to run the 50/50 draw at a Victoria Royals game.

In exchange for this, our commitment to the Royals is to sell 218 sell tickets to two of their games. The dates are:

Saturday February 10 at 7:05 pm

Friday March 9 at 7:05 pm, (Macaulay’s 50/50 Night)

 

Tickets are $13.50 each and can be sold to anyone – family, friends, co-workers. The Royals are having a great season so the games are a lot of fun. Please spread the word, as any tickets we do not sell come out of our 50/50 profits.

We are also offering an incentive prize for early orders — every family who gets their ticket orders in by February 1st will be entered to win a draw to receive either two additional free tickets, or have the cost of two tickets reimbursed (your choice).

Thank you for your support, and let us know if you have any questions macaulaypac@gmail.com.

Butterfly Garden

École Macaulay Elementary School with HAT will be creating a spectacular and unique garden for butterflies with a variety of native plant species including beautiful flowering Camaslily. Our aim for this garden is to create a wildflower habitat garden for students, teachers, and neighbours to learn about stewardship of our local flora and fauna while providing food and shelter for our pollinators. 

With the help of all students and parent volunteers, our goal is to plant 300+ wildflowers that will return every year. We welcome your involvement as a parent leader to assist with planting these flowers in the garden, and preparing the site. If you are interested in volunteering please email macaulaypac@gmail.com.

Thank you to the classes who helped on Monday spreading mulch and preparing the soil for planting.

Halloween Spooktacular

Last night Macaulay hosted a Halloween family movie night. It was a full house. Thank you to all the familes, Esquimalt High student and Macaulay staff for attending and making this PAC event a success. 

A big thank you to Country Grocer for the cookie donation, and to the parents who donated rice crispies. 

Finally thank you to the Grade 3 French students for the decorations and the Grade 5 students for their help setting up the gym.
