Hello all!  Please take some time to read the minutes of February's PAC meeting held last week.  You will see some great notes about a visioning session held by our PAC to further define where we should be putting our energy and resources, as well as many other important agenda items discussed.  Please come to our next meeting in April to get involved! 

If you can, please also come to a meeting at Bayside on Tuesday, February 23rd at 8:45 am to be part of the team planning our end of year party on May 26th where we will be hosting the school community for food and music, celebrating all the learning that has happened at Bayside this year, as well as unveiling the 10' totem being carved by Mark Henry that the PAC has donated funds for and the kids are fully involved in. 

In addition, by now, we are sure you have seen the news about our roof all over CTV news, Facebook and our online petition which has reached almost 400 signatures in three days!  Here are the links to the two CTV broadcasts....
