Message from the pac president

We hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this challenging time. We have either altered or cancelled scheduled events, and will keep you informed of any more changes that arise. Please take care of yourselves, and continue to reach out to loved ones near and far.

Cobs Bread is still operating during the Covid-19 pandemic, and have asked us not to cancel this fundraiser. If you would like to order the Hot Cross Buns, they have taken measures to ensure everybody's safety. We have had to make some necessary changes, however, and pick up will now be at Cobs Bread, at their Southpoint Annex location (#104-2990 152 St) on April 8, between noon and 4pm. Deadline to order online is Monday, April 6 at noon.

Online lunch ordering through the Munch-a-Lunch site is closed due to the school closures. If you have a credit from a previous term, the credit will remain in your account, and can be applied to future orders. If you have any questions, contact our hot lunch coordinator, Colleen, at sunnysidehotlunch@gmail.com. Thank you.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the school closures, the PAC has made the necessary, but difficult decision to cancel this year's Fun Fair. We are sorry to disappoint our students, and would have loved to present some good news to them. We are now in the process of contacting our generous sponsors, food vendors, and the company that provides the inflatable games.

Under normal circumstances, we would hold an AGM, with an election, in June. Due to the school closures, we may not have an AGM before September. Several of our PAC executives will be leaving Sunnyside at the end of this school year, and their positions will need to be filled, otherwise we will not have a PAC. The PAC is responsible for all events and fundraisers, including Hot Lunch, the Halloween Dance, Pancake Breakfast, spirit wear, the Fun Fair, the Teacher Appreciation Lunch, and more. It would be a shame to lose any of these special events.

If you are interested and would like to learn more, contact us at secretary@sunnysidepac.ca or read all about the PAC positions in our Constitution and Bylaws.

Throughout the years, many businesses have supported our fundraising efforts, either through fundraisers or hot lunch. We can show our support for them now by making essential purchases at their locations. The list of this year's sponsors can be found on our Donors and Supporters page.

We have postponed our next meetings indefinitely. Once that changes, we will forward all information promptly. Thank you for understanding.
