Class Reps

Dorothy Lynas Class Reps play a key role in assisting the PAC and their classroom teachers to communicate information to the rest of the class to help enhance our school. Full information about being a class rep is available on the PAC Website www.dorothylynas.com under the "Get Involved" heading. If you are interested in volunteering to be a class rep, please talk to your child's teacher.


Fun Food Days

Fun Food Days is an optional Thursday lunch program run by the PAC and parent volunteers. Parents enjoy not making lunches one day a week and kids love the meal choices. Plus, it represents our school's biggest fundraiser. Ordering is easily done online through the Munch-A-Lunch website www.munchalunch.com and once you have an account, it stays active from one year to the next. PAC will send out a notice early in the school year advising parents when the online ordering system is ready to take orders.


School Directory

The Dorothy Lynas PAC produces a student directory which includes class lists and OPTIONAL student contact details. This is a great way to get to know your children's class, be able to arrange playdates, and even find baby sitters in your neighbourhood. If you would like your contact details included in the directory, you will be given a chance to fill out your contact information online early in the school year. Information can be found under Programs & Events on the PAC website. Please note your contact details need to be updated every year for the directory.


PAC Events and Fundraising

PAC sponsors several popular events in the school year including the Welcome Back Party, Family Fun Night, Spring Carnival and KM Club. These events cannot happen without parent involvement - so please consider helping out when PAC starts looking for volunteers. If you know a Grandparent who might be interested in any of the Volunteer positions, let them know that they would be a welcome addition to the Team!
