Open Letter to the Parents

The Kingswood PAC is the voice of the Kingswood parent community. Every parent of a child attending Kingswood is a member of the PAC.  Together, with Mr. Manning and the staff, the PAC is dedicated to providing positive communication between home and school; encouraging parents to become valuable contributors to educational decisions and allowing parents to make financial decisions to help benefit our students.

This year has been a challenging year for the PAC.  Currently all of the members work full time and are finding it increasingly difficult to be available.  We wish to share the responsibility with a greater diversity of parents.

If we are unable to share these tasks among the school community here are some of the events we will lose:

-Subsidized field trips

-Canadathon and its huge financial benefit for the kids =new playground equipment)

-Gaming grant which pays $15 per student for extracurricular opportunities

-Food Days

-Movie Nights

-Pancake Breakfast

-Wish List for our teacher’s classrooms--iPads, books, sports equipment

-Special Events such as Bollywood and HipHop

Being a PAC volunteer/member allows us to share our knowledge and talents with each other and be involved with the decision-making.  You need not take a permanent position on the PAC to contribute in a meaningful way however, executive positions are available for the next school year. 

None of us wants to lose this valuable connection between the school community, staff, and students but we need more help to continue.  Please consider attending the AGM on JUNE 25 @ 6pm.
