We had a great time at the Pancake Breakfast on December 7! Burnaby firefighters cooked pancakes for our students and staff, and the Parent Advisory Council supplied syrup and drinks. Over 30 parent “elves” set the tables for 400, served pancakes and drinks, and cleaned up afterward. And a special visitor from the North Pole brought treats for the students!
- To the Burnaby Fire Department for being the most efficient pancake flippers we’ve ever seen,
- To Save On Foods for supporting the Cameron PAC for this event and many others,
- To Santa for graciously letting kids pull his beard to test it,
- To our parent volunteers for all the work to put on this event,
- To the teachers and staff for getting in the spirit in their pajamas, and
- To Ms. Venos’ and Ms. Southern’s classes for the amazing festive decorations in the gym!

The Cameron Parent Advisory Council (PAC) welcomes all new and returning students, families, teachers, and staff to the new school year at Cameron.
The PAC represents parents and guardians and provides input to the school and the district about any aspect of education. The PAC encourages parent involvement in the school and provides a forum for discussion of issues related to education. See About the PAC for more info.

What does the PAC do?
Last year, we raised funds and contributed at least $9000 to the school by purchasing classroom resources, science kits, Cameron Cubs jerseys, portable projectors, library book, and music equipment, as well as transportation and snacks for school field trips and events. We also host a number of school community events during the year, such as the Welcome Back coffees and BBQ, Multicultural Dinner, Pancake Breakfast, and Staff Appreciation.
We need parent support to continue doing these things!
Without your help, we won’t be able to continue to contribute these things to the school community. The PAC welcomes all volunteers–we have one-time and ongoing opportunities, and roles that can accommodate any schedule. Visit the Get Involved page and watch for notices for current opportunities, and email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our volunteer email list.
The Cameron Parent Advisory Council would like to thank everyone who contributed in any way to our events and fundraisers this year, whether by volunteering time, participating in our fundraisers, or bringing food to our events. We had an exciting year and tried some new things, like the Greening Project, the Crash Crawly’s fundraiser, and our AGM, and we couldn’t do all the things we do without the support of Cameron families.
Watch for information about our first meeting in September, and come find out how you can be involved in the 2017-18 year!
Have a wonderful summer with your families!
The minutes from our final Parent Advisory Council meeting of the year are now available on the Minutes & Agendas page. These minutes include our finalized 2016-2017 budget, as well as our planned budget for 2017-2018.
