GRSS PAC Meeting

The first PAC meeting of the year for Gold River Secondary School is set for Wednesday, September 28th, at 7:00pm in the GRSS Library.

Please note that voting for the 2011/12 Executive will take place at October’s meeting.  All current Executive members need to be replaced as the majority of current members do not have kids in school any longer.  If no one steps forward for these positions, the Government will want fundraising dollars returned, which will affect the programs PAC tries to support.

As in any small town, many volunteers and parents are stretched to the limit already.  For those of you parents who are not already actively involved in hockey, skating, rangers, other volunteer groups, etc., please consider giving a little of your time (once per month) to the PAC so that this group is still able to help the kids.

Ray Watkins Elementary School and Gold River Secondary School wish to express their heartfelt thanks to the many wonderful people of Gold River who have acted as mentors and friends to our students.

You have inspired our young people, comforted them, guided them, and had fun with them.  You have had walks, talks and treats with them.  You have baked cookies, brownies, and gingerbread houses.  You have made potato salad!  You have done crafts, made necklaces, bracelets,  and pretty bags.  You have played board games, made play dough and done math.    You have painted,  sewed,  and gone shopping.  You have done fun things on the computer, helped in the classroom, and done healing work.  You have read and written poetry.  You have assisted our young mothers and mothers-to-be.   You have played games and  played the piano, the drums, the violin.  You have shared food!   You have even run around the track and done exercise!

Nootka Sound Outdoor Program Videos

As the school year draws to a close, Mr. Parkes has put together videos for each of the Spring events/activities offered by the Nootka Sound Outdoor Program.

It is wonderful to see how much this program has impacted our GRSS students.  Congratulations on a very successful first year of NSOP Mr. Parkes, and many thanks to all those in the District who believed in this program and helped to make it a reality!  Countless thanks as well to all the volunteers who offered their time for the kids and the program!

Several parents have asked Mr. Parkes for specific photos from the 27 NSOP trips they ran this year.  One grandparent suggested he make and sell photo CDs and use the money toward the program next year.  He thought this was a fantastic idea, so that’s what he’s going to do!

If you are interested in an NSOP photo CD, with well over 600 pictures, they are now on sale for $10.  The quality of the photos is good enough to make sharp prints up to 18″ by 20″.  The CD will have ALL the pictures and videos from the program.

Interested parties can email Mr. Parkes at pparkes [at] viw [dot] sd84 [dot] bc [dot] ca, or call GRSS at 283-2538.
