Through our fundraising efforts each year, the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is able to enhance the school experience of all children at Panorama Heights in so many ways, such as supporting:
- teacher expenses for extra classroom materials
- art and science workshops and field trips
- cultural and fine arts performances
- technology and equipment purchases
As always, we will continue to organize school fundraisers that are fun and exciting for the students and that build a sense of community, such as movie nights, treat days, and hot lunch. However, in response to parent concerns about fundraisers which involve pressure to sell tickets and products, we are once again pleased to eliminate these types of fundraisers and instead offer parents an easy way to support the school community through a simple cash contribution.
The recommended contribution is $25 for one child or $40 per family with two or more children in the school; however, any amount you are able to offer is so greatly appreciated. Our focus for this year’s Family Contribution fundraising campaign will be to raise money for the Teacher Incentive Fund which every year enables teachers to purchase extra supplies and materials to enhance classroom activities. (More detailed information about the Teacher Incentive Fund is available on our website under PAC Bylaws.) Please note as well that no student will be excluded from activities if their family is unable to make a contribution.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns. Unfortunately since contributions must be made directly to the PAC this year rather than the school (upon the school’s request to simplify accounting), the PAC is unable to issue tax receipts.
Contribution Methods: The contributions can be made by cheque, cash, or electronic payment via credit card or your own PayPal account – using the online form.
