May Parent Council Update

May is OUTDOOR sand toys month (a staff request) so while you are spring cleaning, hold onto any good condition sand toys/outdoor toys that our students can use and that you no longer need. Drop off is in the bins inside the foyer of the main doors or to the Principal if it is a bigger item. Buckets, shovels, trucks etc are all needed.

A promise is a promise: May 14

May 14: Rag and Bone Puppet Theatre presents “A promise is a promise” to all students. This event is made possible thanks to funding from your Parent Council.

Next Parent Council Meeting: May 15

Our next Parent Council meeting is this Wednesday, May 15 at 6:45pm in the School Library. If you can’t attend, think about calling in.

Cyberbullying Presentation – May 30 6:30pm
Parent Council has been successful in bringing in Paul Davis as a speaker on cyberbullying and how to keep our children safe with technology thanks to our PRO grant. Mark your calendars for May 30 at 6:30pm at the school. Please see the attached flyer. Feel free to invite family and friends and the general community.
PPPS is Turning 60!

Did you know that Pleasant Park was built and opened 60 years ago? We think that’s something to celebrate so John Marshall, a parent has agreed to spearhead celebrations in 2019/2020. Parent Council will be organizing various activities this school year and next year to celebrate the school’s 60th. We need your help to spread the word; especially to school Alumni. We also need a few volunteers to help plan out the year. Please send any information about Alumni or if you want to help organize to John Marshall at pppsottawa2020@gmail.com.

BBQ: June 15 

Plan for the Pleasant Park PS BBQ are underway and volunteers are needed. This is a really great social event for our school community. Please contact Liz Kacew at ekacew@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering.

67’s Hockey – Can you help us organize this event?

HELP NEEDED! 

Parent Council has decided to host a fun-filled social event at an Ottawa 67’s game in March for all students and their families.

We need to sell tickets in advance and for that we require a parent or team of parents to step up and help organize and coordinate the event details.

Our Executive has started the ball rolling but as many of our usual go to parent volunteers are already very busy, we have no one to run this event.

We have a date, have set ticket prices, and have already sorted out contact details and logistics for selling the tickets but we need YOU! Can you help coordinate ticket sales and distribution and help make this event a success?

Please help us make this fun event happen!

Contact Fundraising Chair Gillian Warren with any questions and to sign up as the organizer: gillianlwarren@gmail.com
