Any amount of time goes a long way to helping the GPAC fundraise and create great opportunities for our school. Whether you can only do a few days a year, or you can help out more, please put your name below and we will contact you throughout the year to see if you are available.
Hot lunch is our biggest PAC fundraiser and gives kids the opportunity to enjoy a hot meal. We run hot lunch every Tuesday through Friday with food items including pasta, chicken strips, wraps, salads, sushi, noodles, pizza and Subway.
We have one parent volunteer who runs the logistics of hot lunch with the support of the rest of the PAC Executive Committee. It’s a rewarding but fairly involved role and the PAC is always grateful for anyone willing to take this on. If you are interested in helping, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fruit & Veggie Program
This is a program offered to schools in BC by the Provincial Government. Schools are provided a single portion per student 10 times per school year. A school parent must have a food safe certificate to enable us to participate. The snack is delivered to the school on Tuesdays and the parent coordinator distributes it to the classrooms.
PAC manages a Scholastics Book Fair every Fall. The Book Fair is set-up in the school library. The chair of this event liaisons with Scholastics and organizes the volunteer effort, which includes set-up, promotions and staffing at the event days. Please contact Kirstie Simpson and Lauren Gilchrest for more info.

This group of gardening enthusiasts, helps improve, beautify and maintain the school grounds. Children are also encouraged to work with the volunteers to build pride and joy in the gardens they get to enjoy everyday. Please contact Rachel Clearwater for more info.
Class parents are the liaisons between parents, teachers and GEC PAC. They help facilitate any requests teachers have for parent participation in the classroom and to communicate broader school activities (e.g. Teacher Appreciation Lunches, PAC events & fundraising initiatives, etc.).

Our 2023-34 Class Parent coordinator is Daniele Lavallee, please contact her for more info or if you would like to volunteer to help.
