Welcome Back BBQ: Thursday, September 20th

It’s time for Pape’s Welcome Back BBQ, following Meet the Teacher night this Thursday, September 20th at 6pm. This year we’ll be holding the festivities on the north side of the school by the gym doors because of all the construction in our regular spot. There will be samosas and pizza and time to talk to all the parents and kids you haven’t seen all summer. Not to mention that this is a great chance to connect with all the Parent Council people (look for people wearing green t-shirts) about ways you can help out this year. The more people who help, the better all our events will be! Also, please bring any book donations (adult and children’s titles welcome) to contribute to the Hoot & Howl book sale.

Easiest Fundraising Ever!

You may not be aware that Pape School has a couple of super-easy, passive fundraising options available. Under the “Passive Fundraising” tab on our website (above), there are two ways to use your shopping to benefit the school, at no extra cost to you. Mabels Labels makes handy labels for kids’ clothing and possessions so they will be less likely to get lost at school, and FlipGive is an online shop-and-give website. In both cases, a percentage is donated to Pape School every time you buy something you need — without adding any cost to you. Please consider giving them a try and helping out Pape as you do your back-to-school purchasing!

Welcome Back to Pape School!

Welcome back, Panthers and parents! Welcome to our new families especially — we look forward to meeting all of you.

It’s hard to believe September is already here, but there are many great things ahead for our school. The Parent Council is planning fabulous events to make the 2018-19 school year lots of fun. We hope that many of you will donate a bit of your time to helping out. There are tons of ways to get involved that don’t involve a major time commitment!

We will be trying a new way of communicating with you this year, and have sent a bright pink form home with your child asking you to opt in for our Parent Council email updates. Sending back the completed form will give us permission to add you to the list so you don’t miss anything that is going on at Pape!

Stay tuned for more information about what is happening at Pape. We’ll keep you posted!
