People who have garage sales and other fundraisers but don’t take the signs down after the events. Poles are covered with old signs and it’s visual littering. Please take your signs down after!
More heed, less speed
People who live out by the airport in Port Hardy (you know who you are): there is an elementary school in your area. Please observe the signs and slow down!
Make time for kids
My letter begins with a rave, a huge rave! This past Friday we had our annual Spring Fun Fair at Eagle View Elementary. It once again was an amazing success. This event almost didn’t happen, no one wanted to take it on. I went to work the next morning after that PAC meeting and was telling some fellow parents, Sabrina Dent stepped up right away and said “let’s do it!” So we did! We had about five weeks to pull this together.
I took on the job of finding parent/teacher volunteers (here comes my rant). Out of a school of 290+ kids I was only able to get 23 parents, some working double shifts. Very sad showing.
The teachers really stepped it up this year and filled in many of the missing spots (another rave). That shows me they truly appreciate all the funds we (PAC) have given them this year for their various activities and projects. Thank you to all that helped before, during and after the fun fair. In the end it’s all the kids that benefit.
