PAC Fundraising Events (How do we spend the money that’s raised?)

  • QSP is now open – Nov 1st to 21st!  Within the next week, your child will be coming home with a package from QSP Canada.  This is one of our school’s fundraising campaigns and there is something for everyone! This campaign runs from Nov 1st to 21st and all funds raised from buying, selling or renewing magazine subscriptions will go right back to the school.  The proceeds will be used towards field trips, books, technology and more!Each package contains a catalogue of magazines and an order form. Please complete the order form and return it back to school with your child, or contact me and I’ll make arrangements to get it from you.
  • Frozen Foods Nov 3rd forms go out!

Other Events/Updates

  • Hot lunch start date is Tues Sept 11, 2018 . Check out our hot lunch page for more information
  • VSB has said the current plan for Wolfe is a seismically upgraded building (not a brand new building). We welcome your voice and efforts (which are needed!)  Stay tuned as more information comes we will post on our seismic page.   Seismic committee and special seismic meetings will be planned during the year.  Eric Hamber Secondary’s seismic upgrading has been announced!  New building planned to be ready by 2022

To pay online (which accepts VISA), you need to set up an account.  Visit  http://www.vsb.bc.ca/online-payment  and follow directions to the School Cash Online page. You will need your child’s usual first name (not legal name if it is different), last name and birth date to register.

  • In 2017, parents were surveyed about the PAC and what they wanted from the PAC, playground, hot lunch, social responsibility and more.  Here are the results.

New Parents to Wolfe – Welcome!

  • We have a general wolfe PAC mailing list to discuss community, social and PAC topics.  Please note this is separate from the school list which only covers school events and communication. sign up by emailing Colleen von Dehn (vondehns@gmail.com).
  • Our school has a hot lunch program which replaced the VSB program in 2016. Deadlines for ordering are on the google calendar.
  • There is a new BC curriculum which is implemented at Wolfe.  Due to the amazing efforts of parents and teachers to incorporate technology, the PAC has been able to supply the needed laptops to support and enhance the curriculum delivery!
  • Where does all the money we fundraise go?
  • With every year parents with older kids head off to senior schools.   We need the help of parents (especially new parents) to get involved in the PAC, either by attending meetings, or helping with fundraising or advocacy to support this great school and its students.  Contact the PAC exec – we need your help!
