Hi Running Club Parents,
We are only 2 practices away from our meet! Here is the remaining season, at a glance:
Wed. Sept. 28th – no practice (rest day)
Thu. Sept. 29th – NO PRACTICE (Pape’s Terry Fox Run in the a.m.)
Fri. Sept. 30th – regular practice (meet details to be sent home to those who submitted permission forms)
Mon. Oct. 3rd – regular practice
Tue. Oct. 4th – no practice (rest day before meet)
Wed. Oct. 5th – Cross Country Meet at Ashbridges Bay
This week we are getting our runners mentally prepared for what to expect at the meet. One of the big surprises for those new to Cross Country running is the SAND.
Every run begins with a 100-150m run across the beach. If you are able to visit the beach in the next week, it would be highly beneficial to let your runner practice running (continuously for 1-2 min.) in the sand.
If you would like an opportunity to run the course prior to the meet, two options are available:
1. Coaches Meg & Elizabeth G will be at Ashbridges this Sunday, October 2nd at 10:30am. We will meet outside the PARALIA restaurant.
THIS IS NOT A TDSB endorsed event. If you plan to join, parents must remain on site and are encouraged to run the course with the children.
2. You can join the Williamson Road team, who meet Mondays at 4:30 PM at Pantry Park (behind Kew Beach P.S.). For more info please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Run Club parents –
Considering tomorrow (Friday, September 23) is picture day AND the forecast calls for rain, we are cancelling running club practice.

Hello Pape Parents!
The Pape Ave Parent Council is excited to be back for another fun year of activities! We are rolling up our sleeves and ready to work! We are excited to share some of the dates we have booked already.
September 22; Meet the Teacher Night and Welcome Back BBQ.
The annual fun fair, the Hoot & Howl is Oct. 29 this year – mark your calendars! Lots more details to come, but start thinking about your costumes now! We want to thank Elizabeth Dawn Snell and Brenda Torrance for agreeing to co-chair Hoot and Howl this year.
Last year we decided to separate the silent auction from the Hoot, and what a night it was! It was a huge success! The date for that “adults only” event is Friday, Nov. 25, so book your babysitters! We want to thank Jennifer Carson and Alex Leech for co-chairing this event again this year.
Our first parent council meeting of the year will be held Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 6:30 pm in the library. Parent council meetings are open to everyone, and we encourage you to attend! Chinese translation and babysitting are both provided. Attending council meetings is a great way to find out what is happening at the school, meet other parents and be a part of the decision-making process. The council also strengthens the relationship between parents and the school, which is fundamental to the success of the school.
We would like to thank DJ Carson and Karen Hunter for their continued service as our treasurers. Lastly, a big thank you to Sorayah Kassim-Lakha for agreeing to be the secretary for all our parent council meetings.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming events!
Pape Ave Parent Council 2016-17

STARTING TOMORROW (TUESDAY, SEPT 13TH) ALL RUNNERS IN GRADES 3-6 WILL MEET AT WITHROW PARK (CLOSEST INTERSECTION IS DINGWALL AND CARLAW) AT 7:55AM.
The grass might be a little wet from the morning dew so could be a good idea to send an extra pair of socks and/or shoes.
Dear Pape Students & Parents – We hope everyone had a fun, safe and active summer!

The 2016 season is gearing up to be one of the best yet with well over 130 students expected to participate. For more information on the club, please visit the extra-curricular Tab on this site.
