Your PAC Exec team (Jaime, Allyson, Taryn)
Last Tuesday, we held our annual Parent/Guardian Appreciation Tea and welcomed over 100 guests who have volunteered their time in one way or another throughout the year. Sheryl Turner, our librarian, coordinated the decorating of the gym with student work in a Canadiana theme to highlight Canada’s 150th birthday. Darlene Lourenco, our music teacher, worked with a number of classes to create Canadian inspired presentations, and Shelagh Lim provided her technical expertise to add visual elements on three screens. Many other staff helped behind the scenes to create an afternoon of entertainment and an opportunity to show our gratitude for all the work parents/guardians do to make Cambridge a special place of learning. If you were not able to attend, the following movie highlights the afternoon presentations.
