Dear Lochside community,

The 2015-16 LEPAC budget proposal was tabled at last week’s monthly LEPAC meeting and is attached. All parents are welcome to review the proposed budget and come to the November meeting with any questions or concerns.  The budget will go forward for a vote at our next meeting on November 18th.

The Halloween Bash is this coming Friday from 5:30-8:00pm.  Please follow the link for details.  Bring cash for tickets to the games, cupcake walk and for the Evil Dr. K show as well as for dinner.  Don’t forget to drop off your pumpkins on the stage the day of the dance to be displayed.  We are still seeking volunteers to help with this event.  Check out the volunteer form to sign up.

The Outdoor Learning Centre is almost complete but in order to receive our building permit, we need to seed grass or sod.  We are looking for a volunteer(s) to coordinate this and get this done as soon as possible.  If you are a landscaper or have a green thumb (or if you would like to donate seed or sod) and would like to complete this task, please email Stephanie.

Fun lunch ordering has been extended to Nov 1st ! Parents must sign up for the entire year. There will not be any ordering available in January.  Also, there is now an opportunity to allow parents to edit their orders, however refunds will not be issued on paid orders unless the amount is over $4.

The grade 5 students have begun fundraising for their Camp Thunderbird experience!  To help you prepare for the holidays, they are selling from two catalogues: Purdy’s and Holiday Magic (wrapping/stationary/gifts/etc).  Each of the companies returns a percentage of the sales to the grade 5’s.  To order: contact the family of any grade 5 student and order through them, or you can review the catalogues and put an order in at the office.  All orders are due by Nov 6.  Please help support our friends in Grade 5. 

Have a great week!
