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.
- At Finn & Izzy on Oak Bay Avenue if you mention SJD PAC when buying a full price pair of shoes for your child they will donate $5 to our school’s PAC! This year we received over $450!
- New** you can purchase labels for all your needs at mabel’s labels. 20% of online sales go to SJD PAC.
- You can purchase clothing labels, household labels etc. through Loveable Labels & they will donate 20% of online sales to SJD PAC.
- The PAC receives 10% of all purchases made at the Soap Exchange at 1393A Hillside Avenue (corner of Hillside Ave and Cedar Hill Rd). Simply tell them you represent the SJD PAC when you make your purchase!
Throughout the year the PAC holds fundraising opportunities. Funds raised through these various campaigns go towards supporting the students in our school. Past funds have gone towards art museum projects, the crossing guard program, sports equipment, classroom field trips and learning resources.
Thanks for your support!
