October Update!


Fall is here and as the leaves change and the days get cooler, busy schedules keep us moving! Here is what is going on with the PAC over the next few weeks.

School Musical- The 3.5 Musketeers

The 3.5 Musketeers is this years production and the show is on Friday October 7th at 7:00pm in the school Gymnasium.

Did you know that the musical wouldn’t be possible without the PAC’s support? We bring LB Productions to the school each year to run this program so that our kids can have a musical production experience!

Tickets will be on sale at the door and are $10/adult , $5/child or maximum $20/family

**Baked Goods and Popcorn will be available for purchase on site**

We are looking for volunteers for baking! All items are to be icing free please.
Baking can be dropped off at the school kitchen.


Next PAC Meeting is a Presenter- Wednesday October 19th 6:00pm

It’s not a meeting this month, we’re shaking things up a bit and this month we will be presenting a guest speaker. Presentation is at the school from 6:00-8:30pm.

In November we have the iGirl and iGuy presentations coming to the school for the intermediate kids in grades 4-7. In conjunction with these great workshops the kids are experiencing, the parent portion of the program is this:

Sex talk. No sweat.
A Workshop for Parents

Not all parents are comfortable talking to their children about sex, but all parents can learn to be
comfortable. During this open and informational session, parents will come to terms with sexual health, and understand how it fits into the lives of their children at this stage of life.  Attendees will discover how to easily overcome embarrassment when talking about sexual health, learn words and concepts that are easy to use, and leave well equipped to clearly answer the questions children ask. The workshop is light hearted, but delivers straight and current facts on how parents and children can work together to promote good sexual decisions for a lifetime.

See the poster Here

Coming Soon! **Crabapple Jelly Fundraiser**

Stewardship Pemberton and the PAC will be selling crabapple jelly made right here in the Valley. Stay tuned for details and order forms coming home! Ordering will be available on the Hot Lunch Page as well!
