Dear Families,

This email contains some dates and reminders about events coming up at school.

Picture Retakes

Code of Conduct
Thank you very much for the feedback that I have received about the revisions to the Code of Conduct. An updated version will be shared at the PAC meeting on Wednesday 18th November and then sent home with students next week.

Save the Date

Dental Screening | Garibaldi Annex PACKindergarten Dental screening
Kindergarten students will have their routine dental screening by Vancouver Coastal Health next Tuesday 17th November in the morning.

Twin day
The students have voted! We will be having Twin Day on Thursday 26th November. Students can dress the same as a friend (or two or three!) To take part, students are encouraged (though not required) to bring in a non- perishable food item. These items will be donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and our own Backpack Buddies food program.

Scholastic Book Fair
We have been invited to join the Lord Nelson scholastic book fair again this year. It will be running from Tuesday 8th December to Thursday 10th December. Divisions One and Two will have the opportunity to visit during the day and it will be open after school. Any money spent by Garibaldi families will be credited to our school and we will receive a percentage of the funds spent to buy books for our school. Further details will be available closer to the time.

Sheet Music | Garibaldi Annex PACWinter Concert
There will be two performances of our Winter Concert on Wednesday 16th December – the matinee (dress rehearsal) at 1:30pm and the evening performance will start at 6:00pm.


Messages from the PAC

Treasurer needed
The PAC is in immediate need of someone to take over the Treasurer position as our current Treasurer is not able to continue in this role.  Prior experience or accounting knowledge is NOT necessary.  It is not a big time commitment and you will be fully trained in what the duties are.  The primary responsibility is depositing money into our accounts from fundraisers and writing cheques when we spend money.  There is one report to be done at the end of the year for the Gaming funds the school receives but it is straight forward and you can follow last year’s report as a guide.  We really hope someone is able to come forward!  THANK YOU

I look forward to seeing you at the PAC meeting on Wednesday 18th November at 6:00pm– while Movie night is in the gym.

Enjoy the weekend,

Cathy Thomas
Vice Principal, Garibaldi Annex
