Silent Auction Volunteers are on deck!

“In baseball, on deck refers to being next in line to bat”

At Pape School, it means we need you to sign up for one/more of the 40 spots that are still open!  We’re still looking for people who can organize, create gift baskets, create delectable appetizers, help set up, help tear down and generally HELP!

For those who have stepped up to accept the Parent Challenge so far THANK YOU!!!  The items are outstanding.  We still need more!

The more items we have up for auction, the more fun the night is and the more people walk away happily with great deals at the end of the night.

The band’s been booked!  The table cloths are ordered!

It’s going to be a blast!  So please also help by spreading the word to friends & neighbours to JOIN US on Friday November 20th!

PS: If you have any white strings of Christmas lights, clear glass vases or battery operated pillar or votive candles please loan them to us for the Auction – the Decorating Committee needs them. Thanks

Thanks again for supporting Pape Ave Parent Council.

Thank you! We did it!

Thank you to everyone who helped out in any way to support the 14th annual Hoot n’ Howl this past Saturday. We had a few “challenges” (rain, a fire alarm) but it did not dissuade people from having a great time.

We will review the overall results at the next parent council meeting, but I wanted to let everyone know that your help was GREATLY appreciated and the day was a HUGE success by all accounts.


Raffle! Raffle! Raffle!

Friday is the last day to get more tickets.  Please sell/buy the tickets you have and get them back to school as soon as possible.  If you elect to not participate please send the ticket books back so we can get them in the hands of our enthusiastic fundraisers.

Draw on Oct 24 @ 2pm

It is parent council’s goal to raise at least $100 per student by the end of the Raffle, Hoot, and Silent Auction.  All the extra field trips, supplies, special programs, and events that make Pape a great school are dependant on your support.

Thanks for giving a hoot!
