One-time monetary donations 2019/2020

Dear parents and guardians, 

Welcome back to another great year at Frank Hobbs! Your Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is committed to continuing to support our teachers and the special activities that make Frank Hobbs so special. In order to reduce demands on volunteers, this year we are asking each family to contribute a one-time monetary donation of $25 per child. This is a suggested amount – please give what you feel comfortable with. Less if fine and more will be put to great use! You can be confident that this will fulfill all of the needs for PAC initiatives. Additional events will focus on building community, not profit. 

Your PAC dollars support a lot of initiatives that make Frank Hobbs so wonderful, such as: 

– Classroom supplies: did you know that PAC gives each teacher $400 per year to supplement their classroom supplies and activities.

– Science Ventures: this amazing program is always a favourite with teachers and students

– Library resources – there are big changes happening in the LLC this year, stay tuned!

– Year end activities – PAC dollars makes school programs accessible to all

– Dance program: the dance program at FH is a fan favourite and part of what defines FH

– Grade 5 graduation: PAC has committed to ensuring that our grade 5s get the celebration they have earned without having to dip into classroom funds

– And much more! 

To make your donation, please go to http://www.frankhobbs.hotlunches.net or drop off cash or cheque made out to Frank Hobbs Elementary PAC in the white PAC mailbox in the hall outside the office. 

If you would like a tax receipt please contact the PAC treasurer Regan Copeland at copeland.regan@gmail.com for detailed instructions. 

If you have any questions please email frankhobbs.pac@vcpac.ca or come to the next parents meeting, October 16th at 6:00pm in the library. 

Thank you everyone for making Frank Hobbs the best that it can be!
