Welcome Back to Pape School!

Hello Pape Parents,

Welcome back to another fun year at Pape! A special welcome to all of our new Pape families.

The Pape Avenue Parent Council is the force behind many of the school’s famously fun activities. The Hoot n’ Howl fall fair and our amazing Silent Auction are just the beginning. These events, as well as many learning and extra-curricular enrichment initiatives that Parent Council supports (iPads and Chrome Books for classrooms, school busses for field trips, Scientist in the School, Silver Birch Book Club, International Feast, end of year play days, grade 6 graduation, student agendas, and many more) couldn’t happen without help from our amazing community of families.

There are many ways you can help throughout the year to continue to make Pape a great school for our kids. Some volunteer opportunities take only an hour or two! Please check Parent Council’s website often – we will update all our activities, information and volunteer opportunities there – papeave.ca.

Parent council meetings are open to everyone. We strongly encourage you to attend. It 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. Chinese translation and babysitting are provided. Please note that meetings will be held on Wednesdays this year. Our first meeting is on Wednesday September 27 at 6:30pm in the library. Our principal, Karen Jordan, will be there to introduce herself to new Pape families and share her ideas for the school for the upcoming year. We look forward to seeing you there.

Finally, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has volunteered their time with Parent Council initiatives so far. The year is already off to a great start, with Hoot n’ Howl and Silent Auction planning well underway.
