Christmas Hamper Donations
Each year PAC works with the school administration to organize a donation drive to support families in need in our local community.
The Emergency Preparedness Committee is responsible for ensuring that the emergency supplies are up to date and that there are enough items for every person in the school should a disaster strike. Supplies are updated twice yearly and kept in a contained storage unit on the school grounds.
Family and Student Education Programs
PAC provides support of optional educational programs that are offered to students during and after school hours as well as to parents in evenings. Past programs have included iGirl/iGuy seminars and Social Media nights.
Fun Fair is a community event held each June. Stations are set up with games for kids of all ages, pony rides, balloon animals, bouncy castles, the ever popular dunk tank, cake walk and a food concession and much, much more!
The PAC provides support to education of plant growth and the environment by providing an outside garden areas and maintaining it throughout the year.
The Hot Lunch program raises funds for PAC by offering students the opportunity to purchase a hot lunch from a rotating menu of lunches from local suppliers. Lunches are ordered and purchased in September for the period up until the end of January and another order is made in the New Year for the second half of the year. Support your school and take a day off from making lunches!!
Lost and Found
Is your child missing an item of clothing? A water bottle? A left sock? It might be in the lost and found. Bins are located outside the Gym and get full fast! Parent volunteers regularly go through the items and attempt to find owners if possible. If you remember to label your child’s clothing or other items, they will usually find their way back. If not, please feel free to come and check the bins. All unclaimed clothing will be donated at the end of each term.
A couple of times a year, PAC hosts a movie night to raise funds for the school. It is one of the fun ways we like to come together as a community to benefit the school. Come in your jammies and settle in for a fun evening. Pizza, popcorn and other concession items are available for sale.
School Staff Appreciation
A traditional event each year usually held in the spring, PAC organizes a staff appreciation lunch to school our appreciation for all the school administration, teachers, and support staff for all they do to make the year for the students. In addition, the PAC provides a gift to recognize staff that are celebrating a personal event or will be leaving the school the following year.
Each year the PAC supports student education in sports by funding school-wide programs that take place throughout the year. In the past this has included dance, golf, gymnastics, inline skating, tennis, and others. The PAC also supplies snacks and water for the annual Sports Day.
Every Wednesday students are encouraged to show their school spirit by wearing spirit wear or the colour blue! PAC offers students the opportunity to purchase Crescent Park Elementary branded spirit wear through the Spirit Wear Program. Notices regarding order deadlines will be communicated through the PAC Newsletter and sent home with students. In addition, all new students are all provided with Crescent Park branded cinch bags when they enter Kindergarten or join the school at a later grade.
