New! Family Photo Online Booking & Payment

PAC is pleased to provide an online booking and payment system for our annual Family Photo event. Spots tend to fill quickly so we encourage you to book as soon as possible. Follow this link: http://falsecreekpac.ca/fundraising/family-photo-sessions/family-photo-session-booking

Each 15 minute session takes place outside at the school – rain or shine. The sitting fee is $25 (donated to PAC) and includes one 8×10 colour photo.

A big thank you to our photographer Lisa Petkau (http://www.lisapetkau.com) for providing False Creek families with this amazing opportunity to capture their family photos using our incredibly beautiful False Creek landscape as a background!

PAC Lemonade Stand Volunteers needed for Saturday, September 14

Hello,

With a very warm forecast for this weekend, PAC will be hosting a Lemonade Stand  on Saturday, September 14 from 9:30am – 6:30pm on the seawall next to the Spruce Harbour Marina. This is a fun way to spend time with your family and friends while raising money for our school.

PAC has hosted this fundraiser for many years with great success, typically raising between $350 – $500 per day. Funds raised at this event and with other PAC fundraising initiatives will support many activities not funded by the Vancouver School Board such as: field trips, school-wide performances and science workshops, iin-class activities, sports equipment, team jerseys, Chocolate Lily and Red Cedar book clubs and additional books for our library (and much more!)

If you’d like to be a part of this event, we will need families to sell lemonade for 1.5 hour shifts beginning 9:30am on Saturday, September 14. Families are welcome to take a shift together. To sign up, please go to our online Lemonade Stand Volunteer Sign Up Sheet.

* Please note we are only having one location this time  – the “Spruce Harbour Marina location” and only on one day – Saturday, September 14.
Thanks for your support!
