We’re looking forward to hosting our annual Family Photo Fundraiser later this month! Each year, Lifetouch Photography (the company that takes our kids’ school pictures) provides two evenings of family photography sessions at the school. For $20.00, you get a short photo session with your family and a coupon for a free 8×10 print, and you can also order a wide variety of other prints and products (including Christmas and other cards, just in time for the holiday season) at regular costs. The PAC receives the full $20.00 proceeds from each session.
This year’s dates are Wednesday, September 28 and Thursday, September 29, from 5:00-9:00pm each night. Watch for a notice soon and request your spot right away – these photo sessions ALWAYS book up quickly!

The PAC Executive is always interested in our members’ (i.e. all parents!) input. All parents are welcome to attend monthly PAC meetings, or to contact any executive member with any concerns or questions. Please consider getting involved in September so that you can help us plan PAC spending priorities. Watch this site for fall meeting dates.
The Cameron PAC has partnered with COBS Bread at Lougheed Mall for a very easy ongoing fundraiser:
When you shop at COBS Bread at Lougheed Mall, simply mention to the sales assistant that you are a parent, teacher, or student from Cameron Elementary.
COBS Bread will then give 5% of your purchase to the school.
We hope you can join us in raising some easy dough!
