On behalf of the École Alpha Secondary School PAC, Teachers and Staff, we are truly grateful for the generous contributions from local businesses to support the Staff Appreciation Breakfast.

It is only with their help that we are able to raise our kids to be the best they can be within our community.

Thank you parents for your support of PAC fund raising efforts. The PAC directed over $17,000 this year towards student extracurricular activities, student club equipment, and visiting performing artists. PAC fund raising through bottle returns and sales of Purdy’s chocolate and SPC cards provided $2,000 for awards to Grade 12 students. Over the summer you can bring your bottle returns to the Encorp Return-It depot on Graveley Street. Please keep your receipt and mention “these are for Alpha School”. Watch for notices soon about SPC cards, available this August, which students can use for discounts at their favourite stores. For your chocolate gift needs watch for the return of the Purdy’s chocolate sales in October 2015.

Wishing your family a safe summer,
Parents of the École Alpha PAC
