Time Change for November PAC Meeting

Due to some scheduling conflicts we have moved the time of the November PAC meeting (Tuesday November 10) to 6:00 PM instead of the usual 7:00 PM.

We hope the earlier start will not deter attendance and maybe getting out early will be a good thing!

Items for discussion will include the upcoming Craft Fair and a proposal to sponsor a parent education evening talk on the teaching of math at Central.

Book Fair on Now!

Before or after your Parent - Teacher interview stop by the Scholastic Book Fair

Makes great Christmas presents!

Buying through the Book Fair is a great way to support a child's interests and learning and is also an easy way to support the school library.

Kids Talking?

In Victoria? Know a 10-12 year old who likes to talk? UVic linguists are looking for participants for a
language study. This age group is really important when it comes to shaping language in a community, and research like this can tell us more about the role 10-12 year olds play in this. We want to interview locally born and raised pre-teens in friendship pairs to get a sense of where local speech is going. Please call us or email us (and not your PAC) for more information if you think your child would like to participate. #youthlanguage #kidstalk #uvic

Thanks very much!

She promises nothing too strenuous, mostly just shepherding the grade students from one place to the other.

If you can help please contact Carrie Schlappner <>.
