Lindsey has done an amazing job at our hot lunch program for many years however this is her last year at SJD. We’re currently looking for a parent to take over the hot lunch program. I’m afraid we won’t have a hot lunch program for next year if we don’t find someone.

If you are interested in this opportunity please contact the SJD PAC: pacsjd@gmail.com

Our school is enriched by the hard work of the PAC volunteers!

The fundraising that they perform provides important resources for all of our classes:


  • Many of the numerous field trips and special classroom programs (such as the Growing Young Farmers gardening program and the Story Studio writing and literacy program) would not have happened this year without the financial support of the PAC.
  • Our arts and sports programs benefit enormously from the PAC’s support. PAC money funded special dance and music performances at school assemblies and purchased over $1000 worth of sports equipment for our students.
  • In addition to their financial support, the PAC plays an important role in building a sense of community at SJD. The special events, such as the Halloween Dance, movie nights, and the Pancake Breakfast, bring families together on our school grounds.
  • The PAC plays an important role as an official voice of the parent community.

All  parents who have a child enrolled at Sir James Douglas Elementary School are automatically enrolled in the Parents Advisory Council. Together, it is our mission is to enhance and support the educational, physical and emotional development of our children.
