Frank Hobbs School PAC

Your school, your community.

Thank you!

Thank you to a team of over twenty parent volunteers for donating goods and yummy treats for this year’s staff appreciation email. Check out the staff appreciation lunch page on the EVENTS list for photos and more information. What a great way to show how much we appreciate the dedication and hard work that goes on through the school year.

thank you

Take a moment to check out the executive and coordinators page of this website to see who’s doing what next year! (See the ‘ABOUT PAC’ top tab and use the drop down menu)

A massive thank you to all our current and future parent volunteers. We have a full compliment for all executive and coordinator positions next year. Frank Hobbs is lucky to have such a strong and supportive community.

PAC to School

To Frank Hobbs Families,


It may seem early to talk school supplies, but we help schools plan for a great year ahead with an opportunity to make your shopping count! By shopping early you can:

PAC to School 2

We are thrilled Frank Hobbs has chosen Monk Office, a proudly island-grown and family-operated business for over 65 years, as your school supply partner. At Monk, we strongly believe in investing in our Island communities with a particular passion for education.  Going beyond fundraisers – we contribute to scholarships, donate product to schools, volunteer with Junior Achievement, and sponsor physical literacy programs by PISE.


Through “Let Us PAC For You”, Monk provides school supplies at better than retail price and donates 10% of online sales of school supply kits back to participating schools!  The program offers PACs a stress-free fundraising opportunity while providing families with convenience, competitive pricing, and feel-good shopping.


To make your life easier, your PAC has pre-built kits containing all required items on your child’s supply lists.  No need to stress about finding a “½ interlined ½ plain notebook” – if it’s on the list, it’s in the kit!


  1. Visit and enter your PAC Code: 278564 on the SHOP page
  2. Add your child’s kit (and optional items, if desired) to your cart
  3. During checkout, pay with Visa or MasterCard and choose free school delivery (scheduled by your school for June or September), free in-store pickup, or home delivery

We’re excited for the year ahead at Frank Hobbs!                          

Thank you for shopping online with Monk Office for your back to school and office needs!

Deadline for ordering is July 23rd


PLEASE KEEP SHOPPING AT PEPPERS and help save for a new playground

When you shop at Peppers, please don’t forget to tell the cashier that you want to put your total onto a gift card for Frank Hobbs when paying for your groceries.  You can also pre-purchase gift cards at the till.  5% of your total amount will then go straight to the school…’s that easy!

As at the end of March 2017, Peppers had already donated over $3,000 to the PAC…. far exceeding our expectations for this school year! For the remainder of this school year, all of the Peppers contributions will go to the new playground.

Thank you to the 92 parents who took time to give feedback on this year’s end of year survey. Your comments are really important!

A majority of feedback from the playground designs (over half of the votes!) asked for Option Three of the equipment selection. This information has been given to our landscaper who is working on some final designs to show you. More information will be posted on the playground page of this website over the next few weeks. Thank you for taking time to look at the designs if you were able.

43% of parents asked if there was a possibility to have  sushi and Subway options for next years PAC lunches. Over 35% liked just having hot dogs and pizza!  57% wanted PAC lunches once every week, and 38% liked having lunches bi-weekly.  Feedback on the lunch selections as well as volunteer contact information has been passed to our new lunch coordinator to help with planning the PAC lunch schedule for next year. Planning more lunches will not only depend on the interest but obviously on the number of volunteers available. Online ordering will be available again after teachers and classrooms are finalized in September.

We had volunteers offer help with lunches, the fruit and vegetable program, Winterfest, a movie night and a family dance. Those who signed up to help will be getting an email over the next few weeks with more information. Thank you for helping to make possible what is shaping up to be an exciting school year ahead for families and staff at Frank Hobbs.
