Growing Smiles Fundraiser

Message from our PAC:
Our Growing Smiles delivery is scheduled to arrive at some point on Thursday. Because of us not knowing what time the truck may arrive, we will schedule the pick up of flowers for Friday, May 15th from 9 to 11 am at the school. We will set up the pick up of your orders in the same fashion as when you picked up your child’s school work back in April. The only exception will be you will approach the table on the west side gym doors (closest to the playground) and exit with your flowers on the east side gym doors; so you don’t have to carry them quite as far to get to your vehicle. If, by some chance, the flower order comes very early Thursday morning we will try to do pick up on Thursday. We will post on our PAC Facebook page, send a mass email and will phone individual orders that are left. Please remember to social distance from one another during pick up. 
The Bert Ambrose PAC appreciates your continued support! Enjoy your  flowers . 💐

Yearbook Ordering

We are now taking orders for the Bert Ambrose 2020 Yearbook.  Not only is our school going to be changing a lot after this year, this is a huge year in our history, so you won’t want to miss out on this memorable treasure.  Because of the current financial circumstances for many, we have greatly discounted our yearbooks to make them more affordable for families.  If anyone would like to sponsor another family who may not be able to afford their yearbook this year, please contact Tanya at  The deadline to order your yearbook is May 22nd.  Because we are not at the school to take cash orders, we ask that you please place your order online.  If you are unable to do so, please contact Tanya at the email above.   When placing your order, please include your child’s grade and teacher’s name. (if grade shows up as the homeroom number, please adjust it)Order your yearbooks at: ORDER YEARBOOKS HERE Note that yearbooks will be delivered to students in September.  Yearbooks will be delivered to Dr. Kearney and Anne Roberts Young for those who will be moving on.   If your family will be moving to another school or out of the city, please email us to let us know so that we can get the yearbook sent to the right place.  
Thank you for your support, and keep sending us those great photos of your children learning from at home.
Sincerely, Tanya Hart and your Bert Ambrose PAC(250)

Rik Leaf Live Concert

Hello SD60!
I am producing a FB Live Concert for Students from Across Canada on Friday, May 8th.
I wanted to organize an event that would give the little dudes something to look forward to and make it as interactive and engaging as possible.
Here is the event link if you’d like to share it with your teachers & families.

Songs written at your school with your students are part of this. Students are encouraged to LIKE their favourite song and share a memory that they have if they were part of writing, performing & recording it. 
I hope you’re all staying safe & healthy!
