THIS IS NOT A DROP OFF EVENT and all students must be accompanied by an adult. Please click here to RSVP to ensure we have enough food available.
Pizza will be available for $2.50/slice and a small concession will include additional treats for purchase.
Parent volunteers are needed to ensure this event goes smoothly. If you are able to help out for ½ hour for set up, door ticket sales, concession and/or clean up, please add your name to our online Movie Night Volunteer Sign Up Sheet (click to view.)
In the spirit of “it is better to give than to receive,” PAC is once again organizing a Holiday Bazaar for students to do their holiday shopping for family and friends from your donations of new or gently used items. This is a great opportunity to recycle items from our homes into gifts for others. And our children get the chance to practice the kindness of giving.
In order to make this a success, we need your generous donations. We are looking for a range of items so students can buy for all the people on their list (i.e., brother/sister, mom/dad, grandma/pas, friends, etc.)
Toys * Books * CDs, DVDs * Items for Mom/Dad * Board Games * Video Games * Garden Items * Vases * Kitchen Gadgets * Jewelry * Picture Frames * Knick Knacks * Sports Items * Arts and Crafts
(Note: Please NO used stuffed animals and NO clothing)
We will have a bin for items inside the main school entrance from Wednesday, November 30th – Monday, December 12th.
All items will be sold for $2 or less, with half the proceeds benefiting the Vancouver Food Bank and half contributing towards the Grade 6/ 7 camp.
The Bazaar will take place Tuesday, December 13th. Students will visit the Bazaar with their classes throughout the day. Parents and siblings may come by any time after 3:00.

I am passing along some information regarding a local speaker series for parents presented by the Vancouver International Children’s Festival. I know several parents from False Creek Elementary attended the speaker series last year and were very impressed with the caliber of speakers. The speakers for this year are: Jennifer Kolari, Barbara Coloroso and Joel Bakan.
For more information about the series, go to www.peptalkseries.com.
Please note – this is NOT a False Creek PAC program but presented by the Vancouver International Children’s Festival. Inquiries about the series should be directed to them.
