- IMAGES FROM THE WEEK
- PAC NEWS
This Thursday, the Surrey RCMP’s Gang Enforcement Team (SGET) will be visiting our grade 6/7 students to present, “Shattering the Image“. The program is, “tailor made for Surrey, providing localized information on gangs and drugs that is hitting home with students, parents, educators and newcomers” (RCMP News Release). Throughout the year, this presentation will be shared with every elementary school in the district.
Cambridge Elementary continues to transform our Learning Lab into a MakerSpace. What is it you might be asking? It is a space for students to design, create, innovate, problem solve, hypothesize, and “Make” things that they are interested in exploring.
We want to thank parents who have donated some electronics that students are enjoying “dissecting” to see how they operate, Lego for our very popular Lego club, and different items for our Arts & Crafts station.
A LEGO WALL is a project we would like to include in our MakerSpace so that students of all ages can further unleash their creative building skills. We are looking for a donation of ONE sheet of 4′ X 8′ plywood either 5/8 or 3/4 in thickness with a smooth side. In addition, we need 50 – 10″ X 10″ Lego baseplates (preferably grey or green) that will be mounted to the plywood before being mounted on the wall. If you have any of these items to donate, please contact the office.
If you have any of the following items and would like to donate them to our program, please drop them off at the office:
- Arts & Crafts Supplies – knitting, croquet needles, yarn, cotton fabric, buttons, fabric scissors, ribbon, needle point, embroidery hoops, etc.
- Lego – we have started a LEGO Club in our Learning Lab and would welcome any donations or Lego that your are looking to pass on.
- Building sets/collections – If you have any unused building sets/kits (wood building kits, Connex, etc.) that are taking up space, we would love to include them in out student MakerSpace.
- “Take it apart” – we are looking for 8 or 9 old electronic pieces (cameras. VCR’s, tape players, etc.) that students can explore dismantling and exploring how they work. Please email Mr. Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org) before you bring any items into the school.

The PAC is very excited to partner with our new local BMO branch. When you open a free children’s bank account and deposit $25, BMO will deposit $25 (in Dec) into your child’s account. They will then give the playground addition fund $25. If 100 children’s accounts are opened they will double their donation of $2,500 to $5,000! The branch welcomes walk ins but to ensure they can help you right away you can call the branch and make an appointment. 778-303-9881. The number on the poster is the direct line (Mon- Fri) to Kim Gill, the Branch manager. You can leave her a message to also set up an appointment. All you need to bring is your ID as well as 2 pieces of ID for your child.
Thanks, Allyson, Taryn, Jaime and Miriam
